NotesEdit

  • While the narrative refers to him as "Steve Rogers", the Captain America in the story "The Ray of Madness" is attributed to Jeff Mace as per the retcon of What If? #4. He is named as such here to avoid confusion.
  • While not the first team-up between Captain America and Human Torch, this is the first time Captain America appeared in an issue of Human Torch Comics.
  • The story "The Ray of Madness" has a number of impossibilities, primarily to do with the plot point that the Human Torch manages to fly to Jupiter using his flame powers alone. The first impossibility is the fact that the Human Torch could not flame on in space as there is no oxygen. As established in Marvel Comics #1, the Torch requires oxygen in order to be able to use his flame. The second problem with this plot would be the length of time the Torch can remain aflame and how fast he can travel. At normal levels the Torch can only maintain his flame consistently for 16.5 hours and can fly at a speed of 700 MPH. The distance between Earth and Jupiter is 93,000,000 miles. Even if the Torch could sustain his flames indefinitely in space it would have taken him 5535 days (or roughly 15 years) to reach Jupiter from the Earth. The other issue is the fact that the Torch cannot fly fast enough to reach escape velocity from Earth's gravitation pull. Clearly the writer of this story was limited by what was known about outer space circa 1948 and all these inconsistencies can be chalked up to creative license.
