Synopsis
A spaceship flies over the city dropping a message from Comrade X of the Red Planet, stating that earth must be destroyed so that his world's growing population can survive. A gigantic, monstrous eight headed creature wreaks havoc on the city and the flaming duo tackle it, but the creature is fireproof. Its fang-like tongue poisons Toro but The Torch rushes him to Dr. Carter, who tells him the boy's life can only be saved by a blood transfusion; luckily the Torch has the same blood type. As buildings continue to be destroyed the Torch uses the Doctor's chloroform to knock the creature out.

Indexer Notes

At the time of its printing Marvel was unaware that the Torch story was unpublished 1950s inventory. Chronologically, this story takes place between Captain America #78 and Avengers #134 (flashback).

Script credit by Martin O'Hearn. Previous indexer credited Stan Lee.

The sequence in which the wounded Toro requires a transfusion from the Torch echoes the untitled Human Torch story in Marvel Mystery Comics (1939 series) # 19.
