Passing by a traveling circus, Torch spots a young kid on the ground with his body aflame. Landing, and a bit puzzled, he helps the young boy named Toro to be able to flame on at will and fly. Just then, the circus strongman, Samson, buts in and takes on the Torch. Samson loses and swears revenge. In the meantime, Toro relates how he was involved in a train accident and lost both his parents after trying to save them in the fire. He fell unconscious, holding a piece of molten metal in his hand. He was adopted by two circus performers and has been with the circus since. Meanwhile, Samson is planning his revenge against the circus and especially the Torch, the latter with a stolden invention called "The Rayon Gun" that puts out flame. The Police eventually arrest Samson and the Torch tracks down his henchmen.
