When the Human Torch and Toro opened an office in December 1943, they hired Janice Perry to be their secretary. When the Torch and Toro went to investigate a strange case of poisonous Japanese beetles, Janice became worried over the pair and followed them.

Through dumb luck, she happened to stop at the castle of the Beetle -- the very foe that the Torch and Toro were trying to stop -- to seek someone who might have seen her employers. Captured, Janice was suspended over a pit of poisonous beetles until she was rescued by the Torch and Toro.[1]
