"Introducing: Toro, the Flaming Torch Kid" Reprinted from Human Torch (1940) #1.
The Human Torch notices a circus while crossing the skies, and drops in to visit. There is a sideshow fire-breather, young Tom Raymond, whose stage name is Toro, who oddly bursts into flame at the arrival of the Torch. Odder still is that the fire doesn't harm him. The Torch takes Toro as a sidekick and trains him. Pops, the owner of the circus, is thrilled at the prospect of the new attraction, but Samson the strongman gets surly with Pops over pay issues, and the Torch must step in to protect Pops. Toro tells the Torch of how he became an orphan from a train wreck, and was rescued by Pops. Samson returns later to endanger Toro, and to steal a weapon, the Rayon Gun, that kills the flame of our crime-fighting duo. The Torch and Toro subdue Samson and his henchmen. 19 pages.
