As the story progresses, it becomes clear even to Johnny that Captain America is not the heroic patriot of the Second World War. A lengthy tussle occurs when he finds the fake Cap robbing a bank. The fight is only curtailed when ‘Cap’ uses a damp mop to extinguish Johnny. Thankfully, a passing caretaker is able to focus several electric fan heaters onto our hero, drying him out and enabling him to ignite once more.

More importantly, this is our 50th ‘Flame On’ since Johnny coined the catchphrase, and the first ‘POV’ shot as well. I guess there’s a level of appropriateness in celebrating this milestone with a very atypical representation of this trope.

Check out our coverage of Strange Tales #114 on our twentieth episode: The (Pre-Emptive) Return of Captain America (Secret Wars II Continues In This Episode)
