Characters Appearing: Human Torch
Marvel Comics Presents #83 (Human Torch)
Issue(s): Marvel Comics Presents #83 (Human Torch story only)
The Human Torch encounters a woman called the Moth, who can drain his flame.
The Moth has been hired by gangsters to take care of the Torch, but once he's captured, he hears that they plan to double cross and kill her too. Johnny tries to escape and save her, but she won't believe him about the double-cross, and so she winds up getting shot dead.
I was waiting for the "moth drawn to the flames" connection, and this is what we get.
I can barely even muster up the energy to complain that we don't learn anything about the Moth, like why she'd call herself that if her power is to drain flames?
Quality Rating: D+
Chronological Placement Considerations: N/A
Continuity Insert? N

She's called the Moth because she's DRAWN to flames.

The art is nice, though. Larsen is a good fit to ink Steve.

This was another Steve Ditko story from MCP that I rather liked since it had the co-creator of Spider-Man working with Erik Larsen, who was the then-current regular artist on Spider-Man. Of course, since Hell will probably freeze over before Ditko ever does another Spider-Man story, instead we have them collaborating on the Human Torch. Well, it still looked really nice.
