* ''TheTwelve'' shows that The Human Flame was given his fire-powers by the previous holder who was on deaths door after being injured in a shootout. However, he feels enormously guilty over it because he held off calling an ambulance in the hopes of the man passing the powers to him rather than risk them being lost with his death. After becoming the Human Flame, he makes up a fake back story about getting the powers by being experimented on by a MadScientist. At the end of the story, the Flame is badly injured in the final battle against [[spoiler: Dynaman]] and passes the power to The Phantom Reporter.
