The Hottest Celebrity

When it came time to give Johnny Storm his  FF pin-up (to join the others from Fantastic Four Annual #2), artist Jack Kirby knew precisely how to get across what defines the character the most:

Cars, girls, and being the Human Torch. Not necessarily in that order.

In fact, if I were to take a guess from what I'm seeing here, being the Human Torch is the most exciting thing to happen in Johnny's life. And as far as second place goes, girls and cars are in a tie.

But don't take my word for it. Have a look at these scenes that show Johnny dealing in all three together:

Johnny finds a way to blend each element into his life comfortably and enjoyably--but it's clear he revels in being the Torch and enjoying its perks and power, while it in turn adds considerably to his personality.
