While conducting research in Hawaii, "volcanologist" Danette Reilly encountered time-traveling felon Per Degaton. The encounter left her with the ability to control and create fire with her hands.
She returned to New York just after the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor in 1941, during which her brother Rod was injured. Learning that Rod was the original Firebrand, she modified one of his costumes and became the new Firebrand, joining the All-Star Squadron. Danette became a leading member and mentored younger heroes when they joined the team. She fell in love with the Shining Knight. They married, and she became the adoptive mother of Terri Rothstein, future mother of the Atom-Smasher. Danette was eventually killed, leaving Shining Knight to avenge her death.
Firebrand was one of the chosen heroes to help Harbringer on her mission during a deadly crisis.
