Synopsis
In flashback we see the how Dr. Doom used "The Terrible Trio" to trap the Fantastic Four, then discarded his underlings by sending them into another dimension! With Doom gone, the three return to Earth, where they're foolish enough to try taking on The Torch again, figuring 3 against 1 would be no contest. WRONG! After, Sue gives Johnny hell for how his "roughneck" friends must have messed up "her" house.
