Funko Pop 501 The Original Human Torch

The Human Torch (Jonathan Lowell Spencer "Johnny" Storm) is a superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.  The character is a founding member of the Fantastic Four.  He is writer Stan Lee's and artist Jack Kirby's reinvention of a similar, previous character, the android Human Torch of the same name and powers who was created in 1939 by writer-artist Carl Burgos for Marvel Comics' predecessor company, Timely Comics.

Like the rest of the Fantastic Four, Johnny gained his powers on a spacecraft bombarded by cosmic rays.  He can engulf his entire body in flames, fly, absorb fire harmlessly into his own body, and control any nearby fire by sheer force of will. "Flame on!", which the Torch customarily shouts when activating his full-body flame effect, has become his catchphrase.  The youngest of the group, he is brash and impetuous in comparison to his reticent, overprotective and compassionate older sister, Susan Storm, his sensible brother-in-law, Reed Richards, and the grumbling Ben Grimm.  In the early 1960s, he starred in a series of solo adventures, published in Strange Tales.  The Human Torch is also a friend and frequent ally of the superhero Spider-Man, who is approximately the same age.
