Origin Edit

The Torch led a small army of anti-Americans wielding armor and torches identical to his own (the gang was referred to as the walking torches, destroyers and flame-men). The Torch himself was a Nazi agent. The gang went on a rampage in an American city and was able to overwhelm the local police. However, the Torch and his gang were ultimately defeated by The Blue Beetle.

The Torch and his men wore bulletproof armor and wielded highly destructive flame thrower wands. Their headquarters was underwater, and they apparently had respirators that allowed them to breathe underwater.
