Fantastic Four Annual #1: Flamin' 'Eck 25

Fantastic Four Annual #1, page 27, panel 2 Written by: Stan Lee

Drawn by: Jack Kirby

Inking: Dick Ayers

Lettering: Art Simek

We're shifting the focus to Johnny again today, as he joins in with the fight against Namor. And his brilliant idea is to throw a number of fireballs at Namor, presumably so that they hover around him, prevent movement.  Unless, as the illustration shows, he decides to step forward.

Other than Johnny's lack of perception regarding three dimensions, what bugs me the most about this is the idea that he can control over a dozen individual fireballs, holding them in place and causing them to burn for a sustained period of time. And by bugs, I clearly mean 'annoys me for the purposes of writing this post, but will never be thought of again once I hit the publish button.'
