Some more Human Torch sound like a good idea? Yes? No? Anything? Sigh... Thanks for nothing, you were no help at all... Since I'm not getting any direction here, I guess I'll just go ahead and review the next part of the Human Torch's first solo adventure. And what an adventure, Johnny versus some random dude with no powers. Onward!
Strange Tales #101(Oct. 1962)
Thoughts: Having been foiled twice by the Human Torch, the Destroyer sends the newspaper another note, this time challenging the Torch to meet him near a small cabin at the edge of the woods... Well, it's a good thing nobody except for Johnny reads this paper, otherwise everybody in town would know where to find the Destroyer! Johnny prepares to head to the cabin, but is stopped by the Thing, who offers to take Johnny's place against the Destroyer. What the hell is Ben so worried about? The Destroyer has only (attempted to) sabotaged two amusement park rides... Ben is all, “If you go, Johnny, the Destroyer will surely kill you!!!” Chillax, Ben!
It's either Ben Grimm, or the neighborhood pervert...
But... Why would anybody suspect him in the first place?
Thoughts: I frigging love that the big bad of this comic was, to quote Johnny, “A Commie Sub!!”.
You don't get much more 60's then this!
