Explanation of the conversion:

What If II #114 History: After the Beyonder died the heroes and villains he had brought to Battleworld were stranded there. A few years later Wasp and the Human Torch II had a son, and named him Matthew Storm. When he learned Malefactor was going to try to take over the world, Matthew joined up with his friends in forming a new Avengers group to defeat him. Lead by Crusader III, Matthew joined Bravado, Torrent and Mustang.

During the battle over control of the planet the old heroes were confronted with armies of Doombots at Malefactor's control, while the new heroes took on Malefactor and his minions. Doctor Doom then returned, having faked his death and took Malefactor for punishment. Fighting ceased when the Hulk returned and put an end to it.

Powers: Firefly has a combination of the powers both of his parents have. He can shrink down in size and fly on insect-like wings, as well as surround himself with a flaming aura and shoot fireballs.
