Synopsis for "Human Torch"Edit

A man named Ronald's estate is attacked by two Tibetan Lamas, alerting the attention of the police. The Human Torch and his colleague Peter arrive on the scene first. Much to the Torch's surprise, the men who bombed Ronald's home are immune to his flame powers, the strange attackers are also equally surprised by the Torch's ability to control flame. When the men causes the flames inside Ronald's home to turn blue -- thus immune to the Torch's control over fire, the Torch must focus on putting the blaze out while the two lamas flee the scene.

In the aftermath, the Torch learns that two years ago Roland was lost in the mountains of Tibet and taken in by these lamas who taught him their secrets to control flame. One of the lamas named Kalif returns and explains that Ronald was going to use their secrets for his own selfish ends. Using a flame wip, Kalif strikes both the Torch and Ronald. While the Torch breaks free, the two lamas escape and Ronald burns to death. Going back to Pete, he finds his partner knocked out and left with a note stating that Ronald was served a just fate and invites the Torch to meet them at the Temple of the Flame.

Deciding this requires investigation, the Torch decides to check it out and soon arrives at the temple. There he bursts his way in expecting a fight however Kalif only offers him a chance to explain himself. Deciding that something bigger is happening the Torch decides to listen. He is told how the Fire-Men are an ancient sect charged with keeping the dreaded Fire-Monsters at bay. Finding this story ridiculous, the Torch tries to bring Kalif into police headquarters for questioning.

He is quickly over powered by an air blaster and tossed into a pit where he must face against a captured Fire-Monster. Easily over powering the monster with his own flame powers, the Torch kills the creature. Convince that Kalif is telling the truth, the Torch agrees to help them stop the Fire-Monsters that are loose.
