  Isn't this the first sidekick in Marvel'S history?

  Don't like Toro. Looks like a copy of Torch, except younger, less well illustrated, and with no reason given for his powers. Story itself was ok, fighting the strongman and such, but they should've just left Toro at the circus instead of incorporating him into Torch stories regularly (as I'm guessing they will do, or this wouldn't be an essential). Oh, and why is there a professor with a Rayon gun invention tagging asking with the circus?

  I hope you're not overlooking the all-important sidekick of Ferret, his pet ferret?
