Marvel Team-Up #32
Issue(s): Marvel Team-Up #32
The problem is that if it's a Hellstorm story it's likely a mystical story, and there's not a lot for the Human Torch to do in that case.
Wyatt Wingfoot has been possessed by a demon...
...so the Torch contacts Hellstorm...
...and takes him to Wyatt's reservation. On the way there, Johnny decides not to comment on Hellstorm's... lifestyle.
Sure enough, it's an exorcist story, but the Torch is given the opportunity to be useful when Hellstorm gets out of control.
Quality Rating: C-
Chronological Placement Considerations: For the FF members, this is between FF #157-158 and after Marvel Two-In-One #8, which is said to take place "last week". For Hellstorm, it's between Marvel Spotlight #22-23 (the MCP also places his appearance in Giant-Size Defenders #2 and Defenders 24-32 in that same gap, although i have Giant-Size Defenders #2 earlier).
Continuity Insert? N
My Reprint: N/A
Note that Katherine's first name is misspelled "Kathryn," and Daimon addresses her as "Kathy," which I believe is completely inconsistent with his own strip, where as far as I know he has only called her "Dr. Reynolds" thus far.

Steve Gerber and Gerry Conway seemed to have little communication with each other. Conway had Wingfoot identified with his usual tribe, the Keewazi in Oklahoma, but Gerber identified him as a Konohoti in the further Southwest. Even worse, editor Len Wein didn't seem to notice that Wyatt was being mind-controlled twice in stories a week apart.

To be fair, the latter thing is pretty common- in Doctor Strange 51 and Defenders 102, which were published like two months apart, Clea saved the day in both issues by using spells to channel or awaken love. I guess Stephen had her studying love spells at the time.

An even more embarrassing problem with this book is this narration: "...the plains of Kansas fall away to the east of the rocketing Fantasti-Car; the speeding vessel turns NORTH...and soon, in the star-sprinkled sky over a certain reservation in Oklahoma...
Did Gerry Conway flunk basic map skills 101?
