Vincent Astor was an old friend of President Roosevelt, and also ran a secret intelligence group known as the Room.[1] He was responsible for financing Dr. Phineas Horton's Human Torch project in order to compete against Nazi Germany's Project Nietzche. When the Human Torch received public backlash, Astor regrettably told Dr. Horton that the President had given orders that the Human Torch must be encase in cement.
