Fire is a fictional comic book superheroine from the DC Comics universe. A version of her first appeared in Super Friends #25, was created by E. Nelson Bridwell and Ramona Fradon. Beatriz da Costa, alias Green Fury, had been bequeathed her powers due to Brazilian mysticism and was the president of the Brazilian branch of Wayne Enterprises, she possessed an array of abilities which included the power to exhale vast quantities of mystical green fire. She could fly, alter her clothing at will, displayed a limited capacity to project hallucinations. In her first appearance, she confronted and battled Superman, controlled by the "puppet master" Overlord, Sandor Fine. In her next appearance, Green Fury called The Super Friends to help defeat the villain Green Thumb, months revealed her secret origin to them to thwart the demons from a green hell. Green Fury became a member of the Global Guardians when Superman, recruited by Doctor Mist, asks for assistance in locating one of many ancient artifacts being pursued by a powerful group of evil mystics.
They battle a wizard called ` El Dorado' in an overgrown city deep in the jungle. The two face off against'spirit jaguars' and lose the artifact, a crown, to the wizard. Costa assists Superman and other Guardians in battling the wizards, El Dorado included, on Easter Island; the heroes catch a break. This prevents the rise to power of Thaumar Dhai. Though not as powerful as planned, Dhai was still a threat. Green Fury's mystical based powers were essential in destroying him. After the Crisis on Infinite Earths, her history was altered so that she had followed an unusual career path. Renamed Beatriz Bonilla da Costa, she started as an amateur model on the beaches of Rio becoming a showgirl and stage performer before finding herself serving as a top secret agent for Brazilian government's SNI Abin. In the course of one of her missions, Beatriz was trapped in a pyroplasmic explosion that endowed her with the unusual power of being able to exhale an eight-inch burst of fire, she assumed the identity of the Green Fury, soon changed it again to Green Flame.
She joined the international superhero team the Global Guardians, of which she was a long-standing, loyal member. She first met Inc. while on a mission to Canada. Shortly after changing her name to Green Flame, the Guardians' United Nations funding was withdrawn in the wake of the formation the Justice League International. Beatriz convinced her teammate and best friend Icemaiden into joining her to apply for Justice League International membership. Remarkably, in the wake of Black Canary's resignation and the abduction of several members, the short-handed JLI took them on, she once again changed her heroic name, this time to Fire in affinity with Icemaiden's shortening of her name to Ice. As a result of the "gene bomb" detonated by the alien Dominators, Fire's powers were increased, but were less reliable for a time. Fire always assumed a big sister role with Ice, watching out for her and her interactions with the "real" world. For example, Fire stepped in. However, Fire herself makes mistakes, such as torching the cash she'd just saved while foiling a bank robbery.
Beatriz remained with the Justice League International for the remainder of its existence — in fact she served the longest tenure of any JLI member. During this time, she was trained in the arts of battle by Big Barda. In the battle against Doomsday, Bea lost her powers by taxing them to their limits while trying to blast Doomsday, in effect "her fire went out", she remained with the team but by the time she returned in Justice League America #88, it was too late to help prevent her best friend's death, as Ice was killed by the Overmaster. As Beatriz tried to cope with this loss, she had a romantic relationship with Ice's former lover, Guy Gardner, a longer one with Nuklon; when the first Icemaiden, Sigrid Nansen, joined the League Ice's place, Fire befriended her. However, their friendship was tainted by Bea's irrational grief-driven behavior, Sigrid's romantic attraction to Bea; when this League collapsed, Beatriz returned to Brazil, tried to re-establish herself as the country's main protector.
This met with varied success, which she blamed on the Martian Manhunter's prominence in the Southern hemisphere. Fire tried to retire from being a superhero and establish a career as an internet glamor girl when Maxwell Lord talks her and several other former JLI members into reforming as a group of "heroes for the common man" called the "Super Buddies", she found herself sharing an apartment with Mary Marvel and, in a characterization reminiscent of her relationship with Ice, became a reluctant "babysitter" for the naive teenager. In one adventure with the Super Buddies and the others were given the opportunity to rescue Ice's spirit from Hell, yet like in the Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, Fire could not resist looking behind her, which caused Ice's spirit to vanish. During the Super Buddies' time in Hell, Etrigan the Demon suggested that it was Fire, fated to die instead of Ice. During her time in the group, she encounters an alternate universe version of Ice; the Super Buddies did not realize that Maxwell Lord was secretly the Black King of Checkmate.
After the Buddies' dissolution, Bea became an agent of Checkmate as well. It has not been revealed whe

Beatriz Enríquez de Arana
Beatriz Enríquez de Arana was the mistress of Christopher Columbus and mother of Ferdinand Columbus, Columbus's natural son, whom he recognized. Beatriz was born in the small village of Santa Maria of Trassierra in a family of peasant farmers and small share holders, she was from a noble family of Spain. She had two brothers. According to historian Rafael Ramírez de Arellano, her father or stepfather was Pedro de Torquemada of converso origin and her mother was Ana Núñez de Arana. In his history of Cordoba he explains that she and her brother Peter took the name of their maternal aunt Mayor Enríquez de Arana, she was one of the relatives who took them in when they became orphaned in 1471. The Núñez de Arana families were small landholders of modest means. Beatriz knew how to write, an unusual thing at the time; this indicates. Most historians agree, that the lower social status of Beatriz is the reason why Columbus never married her, he had aspired to come across someone of higher social status to help benefit his ventures.
The history of the relationship of Beatriz and Columbus starts with the reason why Christopher Columbus was in Córdoba in 1487 at the Spanish monarchs' Alcazar. In 1479 Columbus had traveled to Lisbon, to conduct trade. There he met his first wife Filipa Moniz and married about 1479 or 1480, they had a son named Diego. Columbus' first wife died in 1484, according to some historians, he became a widower. In early 1486, Columbus was living in the court of the Spanish monarchs, King Ferdinand V and Queen Isabella I in Seville, Spain. Columbus was there trying to convince them to finance his "Enterprise of the Indies" — a far-reaching expedition to reach the east by going west. Columbus had knowledge of the Canaries Current and was hoping he could reach the Indias by taking advantage of this ocean phenomenon; the Spanish monarchs were preoccupied at the time trying to unify Spain. They were interested in Columbus's idea but couldn't give it their full attention while the war in Granada was going on against the Moors.
Meanwhile, Columbus was given subsistence and allowed to stay at the monarchs' castle in Cordoba since they thought he might have a good idea that would provide future riches and spread Christianity. While waiting for a decision on his enterprise and another meeting with the Spanish monarchs, Columbus patronized a local apothecary shop, operated by people from Genoa, Italy. Columbus was from that area in Italy and felt comfortable associating with doctors, surgeons, astronomers and others who patronized the Genoese pharmacy. At the pharmacy he became a friend of a young Basque man named Diego de Arana. Diego had two orphaned cousins in his family's household: Beatriz Enríquez de Arana and her brother Pedro Enríquez de Arana, their family was from Arana as was Diego's, a valley of Álava, Spain. Diego introduced Beatriz, a 20- or 21-year-old woman of Basque origin, to Columbus in 1487. Columbus was 35, they became lovers. In August 1488, they had a son named Ferdinand Columbus, they never married.
Diego's family, who adopted Beatriz, had a prosperous wine business. They may have helped Columbus with money for his expeditions; when Columbus left for his first expedition to the New World, the two children and Ferdinand, were turned over to Beatriz. She took great care of them and was congratulated by Queen Isabella I for her outstanding work; some historians think that the award money intended for the look-out man that would be the first to spot land went instead to Columbus's mistress. When Columbus died he left his fortune to her, she never claimed the inheritance. Adam Leon Belden Standridge 1987

Beatriz Sarlo is an Argentine literary and cultural critic. She was founding editor of the cultural journal Punto de Vista. Sarlo was born in 1942 and studied literature at the undergraduate and graduate levels at the University of Buenos Aires; the writer and dramatist David Viñas was an early mentor and influence. In 1978, she co-founded Punto de Vista, one of the major dissident voices during the military regime which ended in 1983; because of the authoritarian nature of the regime and her fellow contributors had to use pseudonyms, subordinate political questions to aesthetic ones. Paradoxically, this entailed a rethinking of the political which moved Sarlo's thought away from an earlier tendency to Marxism and other forms of radicalism, she has continued to maintain a moderate-left political stance that refrains from promoting euphorias of free-market thought or populist solidarity. Sarlo is a laurelled academic who operates as a public intellectual, she has written both on traditional literary topics—her book on Jorge Luis Borges, published in 1993, is one of the seminal works on the great Argentine fabulist—but she has worked in more cultural areas, such as feminism, the emergence of the modern Argentine city, Argentina's divided sense of its place in Latin America.
These various interests are linked by an overall concern with the intellectual and how the idea of the intellectual functions in contemporary discursive contexts. Sarlo is not a parochial or regional thinker, but participates in global debates occasioned by critical theory and the destabilization of set political ideologies after the fall of Communism, she has warned, against the naive transnationalism seen in an earlier female Argentine intellectual, Victoria Ocampo. In some ways, Sarlo's project is analogous to the work of thinkers of the previous generation such as Angel Rama in its ability to traverse disciplinary and discursive boundaries, though Rama has not been a huge influence on Sarlo. Sarlo has worked with other major contemporary Argentine thinkers such as Carlos Altamirano and Ricardo Piglia, she held the Chair of Contemporary Literature at the Faculty of Arts and Letters at the University of Buenos Aires. In 2001, she was denied a position as the equivalent of distinguished professor, in controversial circumstances.
She has taught at several US universities, held the Simón Bolívar chair at the University of Cambridge, been a visiting fellow at the Wissenschaftskolleg zu Berlin.
