Torch and Toro head for a salt mine in Poland where the chemicals for a super bomb are being produced. They are captured in a vacuum device and placed in a large block. Torch finds that he can flame with his finger using the small bit of air that the Nazis have left them so that they will be tortured by the sound of the bombers carrying super bombs lifting off for their targets. After Torch burns through, he and Toro make short work of the planes.
