Number 1863: Origin of Human Torch retold, 1948
Looking in the Grand Comics Database I don’t see any reprints listed for the version of the Human Torch origin I am showing today. It appeared in 1948 in Marvel Mystery Comics #92. Despite what it says at the bottom of the last panel, the promised stories of the early days of the Torch didn’t happen because the book was canceled. The Torch, Sub-Mariner and Captain America had a later revival in the fifties, which was short-lived.
Neither Atlas Tales or GCD list credits for this story.
