Value of Key Issue Human Torch Comics

Human Torch Comics Price Guide

In the Golden Age of comics, there were far fewer characters. The big hitters appeared in multiple titles, and the Human Torch was one such character.

Over the years, he appeared in dozens of issues, including his own standalone series. By the Marvel Age of Comics (1961 and on), many more superheroes appeared, and Human Torch became less important.

We've broken down this price guide into key appearances in other titles, his own Golden Age series, and then Silver Age issues of importance.

History of Human Torch Comics

Golden Age Human Torch Comics (Jim Hamond, Android)

The Android Human Torch was a superhero created by Carl Burgos under the publisher Timely Comics.

The character was first introduced in October of 1939 under the series Marvel (Mystery) Comics. The character was so popular that he would become one of the fist superheroes to have his own solo series titled after him, The Human Torch in 1940.

The Human Torch also made appearances in Marvel Mystery Comics, Captain America, All Select Comics, All Winners Comics, Daring Comics and Young Allies Comics. The Human Torch was also one of Timely's three signature superheroes, alongside Captain America and Namor the Sub-Mariner.

The Human Torch’s real name was Jim Hamond, an android created by scientist Phineas Horton. He was initially portrayed as a monster in early horror and science-fiction comics by Timely before being repurposed as a superhero who could engulf himself in flames and control surrounding fires.

When the Human Torch is not in his superhero mode, he is known as Jim Hamond and works as a New York City police officer. Initially, the Human Torch was perceived as a threat to society due to his inability to control his flames and was encased in concrete by his creator, Phineas Horton.

A crack in the concrete however allows for oxygen to get in and the Human Torch is able to escape. Hammond seeks his revenge on his creator for attempting to imprison him and then takes on a New York City crime boss who attempts to exploit him and his powers for insurance fraud.

The Human Torch then vows to defend humanity and help them against the Axis of Evil during World War Two, prompting him to leave New York City and fight for the Allies in Europe. He fights alongside Captain America, Sub-Mariner and Bucky to form what is called the All Winners Squad in the fight against the Nazis.

The Human Torch fell out of favour as did many superheroes during the late 1940s and early 1950s and was discontinued as a featured character in 1949 with issue #92 of Marvel Mystery Comics.

Stan Lee would later revive an iteration of the same character known also as the Human Torch in 1961 under the publisher Marvel Comics, making him one of the founding members of the Fantastic Four.

Silver Age Human Torch Comics (Johnny Blaze)

The Human Torch was a superhero created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1961 and published by Marvel Comics. The character is an original member of the Fantastic Four and a reinvention of the original Android Human Torch character published by Marvel's predecessor Timely Comics.

The original Android Human Torch had the same powers and was created by Carl Burgos in 1939. Jonathan "Johnny" Storm gained his powers as the Human Torch by being bombarded with cosmic rays while aboard a spacecraft with the other members of the Fantastic Four.

Johnny is able to fly, engulf his entire body in flames and can control any fire. He is the youngest member of the Fantastic Four and has the most brash personality of the group. He is also the same age as Spider-Man whom he often helps and fights alongside.

The Human Torch had a series of solo adventures under the Marvel series Strange Tales throughout the 1960's. In the mid 1970's, Marvel put out an 8 issue series entitled The Human Torch and another 12 issue series in the early 2000's simply titled Human Torch. He was also the original co-star of the first three issues of Marvel Team-Up.

Johnny is born in Long Island, New York and his mother dies in a car accident while he is still a boy. His father, remained unharmed by the accident however resorts to alcoholism, bringing him into financial despair and he is later imprisoned for killing a loan shark in self-defence. Johnny is then raised by his older sister, Sue Storm.

His flaming body is able to vaporize bullets and any other projectiles that are launched at him and he uses his flames to propel him with the ability of flight. The story of the Human Torch's death is told in Fantastic Four issue #587 as he is shown being killed while fighting a swarm of aliens from the other dimensional Negative Zone. The Fantastic Four series ended altogether with the next issue #588.
