Human Torch; Toro; Chloe; Gus; Colonel Jackson; The Reptile (villain; introduction); Webster (introduction)
The Torch & Toro reminisce about a case some time ago... On a rich estate in the Louisiana Bayou, Webster warns away Gus for "molesting" his fiancee Chloe. But on their wedding day, a creature called The Reptile begins a reign of terror and murder, warning all to abandon the estate. Answering Chloe's telegram, The Torch and Toro investigate, and find that not is all as obvious as it seems. At one point, trapped in quicksand, Toro asks "What are we gonna do?" and The Torch replies "It's a cinch we can't write to our congressman!"
