Synopsis: The Destroyer sends Stanton a note telling him that construction on the new amusement park must be stopped or he will strike! The publisher ignores it. The next day Johnny witnesses a man testing a roller coaster at the park. The cars begin to fall where the rails had been severed. After creating a smoke screen, Johnny flames on and saves the guy (no one in Glenville knows Johnny is the Human Torch at this time).
Another note is sent to the publisher. This time he speaks to the park owner who dismisses the threat. Later that day Johnny and a small crowd witness another accident in the making. He prevents this one as well. A few days later a third note makes it to the publisher who publishes a story about the menace. This time the Destroyer challenges the Human Torch to a battle. The Thing shows up to offer help buy Johnny sends him away disgruntled.
Johnny goes to the meeting place – a secluded cabin. He acts rashly and walks into a trap. However, some teenagers come along the road causing the Destroyer to run to hide his identity. Johnny lucks out. Back at the park, Johnny figures out the Destroyer is only damaging the tall rides. Upon closer inspection, he sees a “commie sub” from up high which the Destroyer must have been trying to protect.
The Torch brings along some military help and captures the Destroyer who turns out to be the publisher, Charles Stanton. The beach next to the park was his private beach and he was smuggling information to the Communists via the sub parked along his beach. He had sent the notes to his own paper to cover up his tracks.
