The Human Torch
Place of Birth
Mad Thinker's lab
Fantastic Four #96
He notified the Thinker - right on schedule - and the androids waited while their two pseudo-team members replaced their own originals. The Invisible Girl’s android came next, followed by the Mad Thinker, himself, who rode his own secret elevator that he installed in the Baxter Building while the four heroes were away in Europe fighting Doctor Doom. The last of them, Mister Fantastic’s replacement, soon appeared, but he quickly revealed himself to be the real Reed Richards and attacked the Thinker. The fake Human Torch and his android team members attacked Richards, until Richards realized that the android disguised as his wife hid a specific closet, and he opened it to reveal the real Thing.
The true Ben Grimm’s grogginess wore off quickly, and he leapt into the fight, smashing the android Torch with a single blow. Ben was surprised, but as Reed explained: since the Torch was an android, and not human, the destruction of his mechanisms meant his own death. The Thinker himself was later subdued and brought back to the authorities.
