Synopsis for "The Human Torch"
Johnny Storm and his sister Sue have taken up residence in Glenville, New York, where nobody is aware that they are members of the Fantastic Four. The town has recently begun construction of a new amusement park which has been the target of sabotage, by somebody who has also been sending threatening letters to the local newspaper, calling himself the Destroyer.
Johnny, as the Human Torch, decides to get to the bottom of things and find out why this is happening. He foils a number of acts of sabotage and saves people from getting hurt. His efforts netted him a challenge being issued by the Destroyer through the newspaper. When the Thing arrives to give the Torch some help thinking that Johnny is in over his head, the Torch refuses.
Going to the meeting place, a cabin in the woods, the Torch has his flame doused with a bucket of water and is easily duped by the Destroyer who manages to escape. Johnny later decides to see why the Destroyer is targeting the amusement park. Upon closer inspection, he finds that there is a Soviet submarine off the coast. With the help of the US military, he captures the spies, and the Torch learns the hide out of the Destroyer.
The Torch easily defeats the Destroyer this time and reveals him to be Charles Stanton, editor of the newspaper company which published the Destroyer's letters. He was working for a newspaper to learn what he could about the goings on in America to report back to his superiors, and he targeted the amusement park because its construction near the waterway would have made the Soviet sub visible to others.
