Synopsis for "The Human Torch and the Sub-Mariner Meet"Edit

Continued from last issue...

Unimpressed with warnings that the Human Torch would seek to stop his rampage in New York, the Sub-Mariner would leave his base of operations at the Statue of Liberty to cause more chaos in the city. Stealing a depth charge from a naval ship he would set it off above the Hudson Tunnel flooding it. He would then head to the Brooklyn Zoo, after downing an airplane, he would set the animals free. However, when rampaging elephants would threaten the life of an abandoned baby, the Sub-Mariner would go to the child's rescue and deliver it to a nearby hospital.

Resuming his rampage, the Sub-Mariner would go to the Brooklyn Bridge where he would begin wrecking it until the Human Torch would catch up to him. The Torch's flame powers would prove to be too much for the Sub-Mariner to handle and he would dive into the water below. As he would swim away, he would vow to the Torch that he would return.

The same would happen when going to the Brooklyn Zoo where the Torch would have to stop to help recapture all the freed animals.
