Firefly is a villain in the TV series The Batman.
A corporate saboteur, Firefly executed a few take-downs of rivals to GothCorp. Paid by the job, Firefly did each one with ease until Batman intervened. Though Firefly proved to be a challenge for Batman at first, he was taken down when Batman mimicked his opponent's high-speed jet pack, allowing him to play "catch up" and took down the criminal.
Mr. Freeze soon hires Firefly to help him put his new plan to action: putting Gotham City in a never-ending winter but the two were stopped by Batman.
He then joins Team Penguin alongside other super villains which was formed to finally eliminate Batman. In the end, Firefly was defeated alongside the team and captured.
He was then captured by Rumor, wanting to be eliminated alongside Gotham City's other criminals and super villains. After being freed, Batman and Robin defeated Firefly and the other freed prisoners.
Firefly soon gains a new partner and lover, Blaze, and the two steal a phosphorus isotope to upgrade his battle suit. An accident causes the stolen item to mutate Firefly into Phosphorus which has him acquire greater powers and abilities but is also driven insane. He infiltrates the Chemical Plant and plans to destroy Gotham City; but is foiled and ultimately defeated by Batman, then sent to Arkham Asylum.
