Alvin Rusch is the father of Jason Rusch – the current Firestorm. They live in a modest two-story home on 49 Pleasant Road in Detroit, Michigan. Alvin was formerly employed at a factory plant but is currently retired and living on disability. Many years ago, Alvin suffered a terrible accident at the plant, resulting in the loss of his left arm. The accident caused Alvin to grow bitter and despondent. He developed a rage, which he ultimately took out on his family. Refusing to suffer his abuse any longer, Alvin's wife abandoned her family when Jason was but a small boy. Alvin remained a strict authority figure in Jason's life, prone to bouts of emotional abuse and physical violence.
This history is continued in The New 52 at Alvin Rusch (Prime Earth).
Despite his disability, Alvin possesses the strength level of a middle-aged man who engages in intensive regular exorcise.
