First up, in the Daytime section, the Guide mentions the newcomer and lists Spidey's friends as Iceman and "Fire-Star."
In the actual listings, though, we see her named...Heatwave?
Who the heck is Heatwave? And what about that extra hyphen in "Fire-Star"?
We know, of course, that the character's name is FIRESTAR, and I will prove it to you by showing you the display ad NBC paid for to showcase its Saturday morning lineup.
