STRANGE TALES #105 (1963)

The Wizard returns. 

He escapes prison by volunteering at the prison hospital and using the chemicals in the infirmary to create a serum that melts steel bars.

Once out, he baits Torch on TV.

Sue tries to calm him down, but he decides to go after Wizard anyway.  (It’s odd that Sue wouldn’t want him to chase down a villain…). She even asks Reed to help…

Look at Thing in the background eating an entire slice of cake with his hands!

So, Torch goes after Wizard alone–and Invisible Girl follows behind.  The two go through a gauntlet of death traps, capture him, and Torch takes all the credit.

Johnny Storm is kind of a dick.
