The Human Torch (Jonathan Lowell Spencer "Johnny" Storm) is a fictional character and superhero of the Marvel Comics universe. He is a member of the Fantastic Four, making his first appearance in Fantastic Four #1 November 1961. Writer Stan Lee and artist Jack Kirby re-introduced the Torch as a Silver Age version of the Golden Age character of the same name created by Carl Burgos.
Like the rest of the Fantastic Four, the Human Torch gained his powers on a spacecraft bombarded by cosmic rays. He can engulf his entire body in flames, is able to fly, can absorb fire harmlessly into his own body, and can control any nearby fire by sheer force of will. "Flame on!", which the Torch customarily shouts when activating his full-body flame effect, has become his catchphrase.
The youngest of the group, he is brash and impetuous when compared to his beautiful and compassionate sister, Susan Storm, his sensible brother-in-law, Mister Fantastic, and the grumbling Thing.
In the early 1960s, he starred in a series of solo adventures, published in Strange Tales. He is also a friend and frequent ally of Spider-Man, who is approximately the same age as the Torch.
