Synopsis:
A spaceship flies over the city, dropping a message from "Comrade X" of the "Red Planet" saying the world will be destroyed as they need it for their growing population. A gigantic, monstrous creature with 8 heads parachutes from the craft and begins destroying the city! The Torch and Toro tackle it, but it appears fireproof. It also has a poisonous, fang-like tongue, which poisons Toro. The Torch rushes him to Dr. Carter, who says the only way to save Toro's life is with a transfusion, and The Torch is the only one with the same blood type. As buildings continue to be destroyed, The Torch uses the Doctor's chloroform to knock the creature out, then returns to give Toro the transfusion.
