Thanks. Pretty easy to DIY. Thin bendy wire, hot glue sticks & yellow n red translucent paint.

Which will probably end in a disaster for me 😄 

Still why we didn't get flame blasts with Pyro when Hasbro have don them for other lines was mindboggling.

That's not correct.  He was originally British.

For 2 or three issue. Also fun fact, Australia was a British prison colony. Thus many word in the Australian slang originate from England. That probably the reason he was thought to be British at first.

So basically, they made a mistake in the Marvel Handbook where they say he's Aussie but he'd already been established as a Brit. Multiple examples of him being called/described as an Englishman, yet he never once corrected anyone? But instead of correcting the Handbook entry, Marvel just went with the error.

Lol...comics!

That really confused the hell out of me for so long.  Avengers Annual #10 was the first thing I ever read with Pyro in it.  Then later on they would reference him being Australian.  For the longest time, I would assume I just remembered wrong when whatever the comic I was reading at the time said one way or the other.  I didn't realize until years later that they had pulled a switch.  Felt like I was taking crazy pills!

Nope, not your fault.

"Blow it out your Union Jack, limey!" Pyro never responded to that. 

That's all you need to know. You say something like that to a person who isn't English, they're gonna correct you.

Pyro wasn't "thought" to be British, he was British. The Handbook made a mistake and subsequent writers just went with it. Who knows why, maybe chalk it up to indifference and ignorance.
