Synopsis:
Johnny is frustrated that his partners don't take him seriously. Reminded by a photo that Sue still has a crush on Sub-Mariner, Johnny decides to impress them by challenging Namor to a fight! Flying over the water, his flame gives out, and mistaken for a stowaway, he's put to work mopping the deck of a ship! But when they're caught in a dense fog, Johnny proves who he is by guiding the grateful crew to safety. Johnny writes a message in flames challenging Namor, who at first isn't interested, but soon a major free-for-all erupts. At one point Namor uses an idol to hypnotize Johnny so he can clobber him, then sends him toward home tied to the back of a porpoise. But Johnny revives, and using his flame to the utmost pursues Namor underwater, trapping him in an tunnel. Exhausted, Johnny's picked up by the same ship again. Namor frees himself, impressed that The Torch is more powerful than he realized, though still a teenager. Namor wonders if he might one day convince The Torch to join him and beat the Fantastic Four! Back home, Johnny collapses, and Sue makes a snide comment about how tiring working on hot rods must be.

Indexer Notes

5th modern-day appearance of The Sub-Mariner. Previous appearance in FANTASTIC FOUR #14 (May 1963); next appearance in FANTASTIC FOUR ANNUAL #1 (November 1963). Although this story came out a month before FF #14, it feels much more like a sequel. 1st non-Jack Kirby Sub-Mariner story of the 1960's. Sub-Mariner exhibits the powers of a puffer fish and an electric eel, never seen again after this story!
