History:  (Marvel Vision#17 - Timeslip) - The jewish Professor Horton created the android Human Torch as a response to the Jewish persecution by the Axis Powers of World War II. Covering his creation in slow-burning rags, Horton created a modern-day golom that struck at the Nazis with a zombie-like determination.

Comments: Created by Jim Krueger and Phil Hester.

The Human Torch's reality diverged from Earth-616 when Professor Horton chose to create the Torch specifically to burst into flame, as opposed to the android accidentally bursting into flame as in Marvel Comics#1.

Profile by Proto-Man.

The Human Torch (Timeslip) should not be confused with:

Professor Horton

Professor Horton was a Jewish scientist who, tired of seeing his fellow men persecuted by the Nazis, created the android Human Torch to fight fire with fire.
