The group decides to take out each member of the FF one by one starting with the Human Torch. Tricking the Torch into thinking he's going to be interviewed by an automobile magazine, he is instead attacked by the Trio and left bound up in a fire proof trailer. Using his flame powers to generate smoke to bring firemen, the Torch is freed from his trap.
