Synopsis for "The Torch Goes Wild!"Edit

When the Torch flies off to the Inhumans' Hidden City believing that Crystal is being held against her will, Reed, Sue, and Ben chase after him but are held back when their flying saucer is downed by a meteor shower.

Johnny, while camping out in a cave, is captured by the Yeti and brought before the Inhuman royal family. Battling them, and, believing Crystal is brainwashed when she joins the fight, Johnny loses his temper and attempts to throw a large fireball at the Inhuman city. It's stopped at the last minute by the timely arrival of Reed and the others.

The battle stopped, it is revealed that Crystal was called back to the Hidden City in order to keep Black Bolt alive while he waited for a cure to be developed. After the explanation, an apologetic Johnny makes up with Crystal, who still has to remain in the Hidden City until Black Bolt is fully healed.

Continuity Notes

  • The Yeti's past has been expanded upon in Marvel: The Lost Generation #10-12. It is explained the Yeti was a member of the First Line, heroes from the 20th Century who defended the Earth and perished at stopping a Skrull invasion. Yeti betrayed his teammates to the Skrulls. X-Men: The Hidden Years #16 went on to explain that the Yeti and his Skrull ally -- a woman whom he was smitten with -- hid in the Himalayan mountains where she died, and this is the reason why the Yeti went mad.
