The origin of the Flame Men is unknown; however, according to their leader the Sub-Earth Man, they ruled the Earth billions of years ago, before the planet's surface cooled. In 1941, the Flame Men attempted to retake the surface world. However, their efforts were thwarted by geologist Bob Roland. Bob believed his thwarting of their plot was only temporary.. This remains to be substantiated.
