Free Comics Monday: The Flame

Today I present two issues of the Fox Feature Syndicate character The Flame:

Here is what wikipedia says about The Flame:

The Flame was a fictional superhero that appeared in comic books published by Fox Feature Syndicate. The Flame first appeared in Wonderworld Comics #3 (July 1939). He was created by writer Will Eisner and artist Lou Fine.

The Flame first appearance was in Fox's Wonderworld Comics #3, dated July 1939. The Flame gained his own title in the summer of 1940; it ran for eight issues. He was one of the titular Big 3, appearing in that periodical alongside Blue Beetle and Samson. The Flame's final appearance was in January 1942, when all three titles were canceled.

More from wikipedia...

Thanks to his training, the Flame has the ability to control fire and heat. He can raise his own body temperature to point where he can burst into flames, or melt bullets. He can control and direct any flame in his presence. He can also teleport from place to place by appearing inside of any fire source, no matter how small. The Flame's one weakness is water, which can severely weaken him. In order to provide fire whenever he needs it, the Flame carries a small, pistol-sized flame thrower.
