In the House of M universe, Johnny Storm didn’t journey into with his sister. Introduced in Fantastic Four: House of M #1 (2005) by John Layman and Scot Eaton, this Inhuman Torch is actually Kristoff Vernard, the adopted son of Victor Von Doom. In universe, Reed, Sue and Ben Grimm were joined by John Jameson in their journey into space. However, all except Grimm was killed by cosmic radiation instead of gaining power. Doom used these bodies to give his wife and son powers, with Kristoff becoming the Inhuman Torch, taking on a flaming demon look. Together with Grimm, they became the Frightful Four and worked with Magneto to take over the Earth.

At the time of the Box set’s release, House of M was the latest event that Toybiz could have based figures on. Out of the 4, Kristoff is the only one that was a brand new character.

  • Background:
    • Combining cosmic radiation with mystic arts, Doom transformed his son into this flame demon form. 
  • Why you need it for your collection?:
    • Honestly unless you have to have every Human Torch or want to build a House of M display (we currently have at least 6 characters from it) then I would say skip it. It is the only one in the set that is a brand new character but I wouldn’t recommend using it for your 616 Kristoff display. However, it is very unlikely it will get a remake.
  • Does it need a remake?:
    • No.
