Celebrate 80 years of Marvel Comics, decade by decade -- beginning with the first two superstars of the Flying Forties! The original Human Torch and Namor the Sub-Mariner get along as well as fire and water, and Timely's greatest cross-overs feature the twin titans clashing in fantastic feature-length fisticuffs! A rivalry for the ages is born when Namor, mistreated by the surface world, attacks New York -- and the Torch stands in his way!

As WWII rages, Namor decides to obtain peace by flooding the planet! Can the Torch and his young sidekick Toro bring Namor back to his senses? They'd better, because the Nazis are on the attack, and the two Golden Age arch-rivals must put their differences aside and unite against a common foe!

Includes those fabulous early Alex Schomberg covers. Bonus features include a house ad for Marvel Mystery #8 (from Daring #4), two more fun full-page ads from Human Torch #5 and #8, four pages of unused pencil layouts from Human Torch #8, and the 1999 Timely Presents painted cover of the Torch/Namor battle, by Ray Lago.
