It Ain't Cruel If You Get Someone Else to Do it for You Friday!

From All-Select #10:

Okay, so here's the situation: Back in the day, the most obvious way the Human Torch could take out a bad guy was, of course, to burn him alive. That was quickly nixed by the powers that be because it's obviously a terrible death, even for your typical mad scientist or whatever.

But as we see here, the Torch and his plucky sidekick send the bad guys to a flaming, violent death. Was it okay because the fire didn't come directly from the Torch himself? I know there aren't any hard and fast rules here, but it's interesting to see that the bad guys always seem to die in Torch stories, even if it isn't through a direct blast of fire.

You know what's really creepy, though? This:

La la la la laaaaAAAAAH! I'm having chest pains!

Okay, that was stupid, I'll admit. But it's Friday.

And what kind of "Gadget Ideas" are they teaching teenage girls of the Golden Age? How to work a stove and a vacuum cleaner?

I'll see you Monday!

The Torch and the other golden age heroes would kill at the drop of a hat.

I'm not sure I'd take advise from PeeWee Herman.

That was funny. But not creepy at all.

"Swine?" is that the driver's name or an expletive?
