Written by: Stan Lee

Drawn by: Jack Kirby

Inked by: Steve Ditko

Lettered by: S. Rosen

The completely spurious battle continues, with Jack and Steve using visual imagination to create interesting-looking things for the two heroes do, and Stan doing his best to keep up (and over-writing a little).

It’s the flaming buzzsaws, a slightly more reasonable use of Johnny’s powers. These are, for all intents and purposes, fireballs with a different shape. No homing abilities, no fancy flame colours, and no intelligence. It almost – but not quite – gets a pass from me. Just how does he prevent the flames from losing the definition on the teeth of the blades?
