 Johnny Storm is the younger brother of Sue Storm.  He joined his sister, Sue Storm and her fiancee, Reed Richards on an experimental space flight.  During the flight he was bombarded with cosmic rays that imbued him with special powers.  After the incident Johnny could ignite his body in fire, fly and emit fire blasts from his body.

With his powers Johnny began to call himself the Human Torch.  This name was both a tribute to the WW2 hero of that name and also an accurate description of his powers.    The group that was aboard the experimental ship formed a Super Hero team / family called the Fantastic Four and began battling various super villains.



The Human Torch gained a variety of super powers due to the mutagenic process of being bombarded by cosmic rays.
