Yogi Dakor has the ability to resist flames. Naturally this interested Doctor Doom, who hired him to oppose the Human Torch. Dakor's flame resistance was enhanced artificially. Storm was tempted a near irresistible gift, a sports car. Much like Dakor, this car was also fireproof. A dose of nerve gas and Storm was captured. Upon completion of his mission, Dakor was placed in an alternate dimension until Doom had use of him again.
