KAV'S COMIC DISCOVERIES: THE HUMAN TORCH'S HEAT MIRAGE POWERS

Anand 'Kav' Kaviraj continues to find some amazing discoveries while reading comics from the Silver Age of Comics. Today, we have Johnny Storm (a.k.a. The Human Torch) using his heat mirage powers in The Fantastic Four #17 by the classic team of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby.

More Silver Age nonsense from Stan Lee! Did you know that the Torch could make moving flame copies of himself? In Fantastic Four # 17 he develops another power-the ability to make 'flame images', which are not flaming, but are full color copies of people. In this panel, he's made a copy of Doctor Doom. WTF?? YOU ARE KILLING ME, STAN LEE! KILLING ME!!!!

PS, another thing I have noticed in these old Fantastic Four comic books is the Invisible Girl hardly EVER uses her force field, when it would EASILY get her out of pinches. Like the Puppet Master grabs her and runs off, and I am thinking, "Dummy-if you used your FORCE FIELD he wouldn't be able to TOUCH YOU! Grrrrr....."
