The creature known as Torr was an alien that followed a radio signal back to Earth. The signal brought his ship to an observatory in the United States. He captured two scientists, Paul Ramsay and John Carter. The alien creature swapped minds with John Carter, and traveled to New York City to study Earthlings.

He told Ramsey about his plans to conquer the Earth and make it into a slave world. Ramsey grabbed a policeman's gun and shot Torr/Carter, actually 'killing' Torr's personality. Shortly thereafter, Carter's body came back to life as his personality returns.[1]
