Marvel Mystery Comics Vol 1 15 001

Continued from last issue...

Culflam, a member of the Fire-Men, has appropriated a pair of Fire-Monsters to commit daring robberies that he hopes the Human Torch will be blamed for. After a successful robbery of the Cantena Bank, Culflam gets away and the authorities believe that the Torch is responsible. The Torch, working with Kalif of the Fire-Men investigates the robbery, and becomes suspicious of Culflam's involvement.

When the Torch is called in for questioning, his story about the Fire-Monsters is not believed until another robbery happens. Seeking Kalif's aid again, the Torch witnesses as Culflam kills him in cold blood. The Torch rushes after the crook but has to stop when he hears reports of one of the Flame-Monsters on a rampage. Going after the creature, the Torch manages to kill it by tossing it onto the third rail of a subway tunnel.

Catching up with Culflam and his gang, the Torch uses his flame powers to slay the next Fire-Monster. Confronting Culflam, the Torch's flame is doused with a fire retarding powder, however this is not enough to stop the Torch who easily defeats Culflam and turns him over to the authorities for his crimes.
