The original Human Torch* was an android that was created in the laboratory, a character that resembled the MF Enterprises "Captain Marvel" somewhat. That could have been because Carl Burgos was supposed to have worked on both characters.
In this story, the Human Torch and his sidekick battle a ferocious crocodilian monster.
