After the team disbanded, he continued to operate as a solo hero, taking on a number of villains and threats to humanity.

Miscellaneous: Human Torch's artificial body is composed of a special alloy known as Horton Cells, which give him his powers. He can control the intensity and direction of his flames, and can even absorb flames from other sources to increase his power. His personality has been influenced by his programming as a weapon, and he has occasionally struggled with violent impulses as a result.
