Strange Tales #107, page   9, panel 7

Plot: Stan Lee

Script: Larry Lieber

Art: Dick Ayers

Lettering: Art Simek

So, Namor beat Johnny up with his asbestos-clad fist. And then tied him to the back of a dolphin. And swam away.

So, Johnny decided to ignite small parts of his body, burning through the tethers without even gently heating the dolphin.

Which is how we get to this panel, where Johnny - presumably un-dampened by his proximity to the ocean, as we've seen how even the tiniest amount of dew can retard his ability to ignite - flies away from a dolphin. And, if you look closely at the artwork, you can see the dolphin's back actually on fire.

So much for taking care...
