Date Added:May 25, 2011
Base Figure:Vision Marvel Legends Hasbro Series 6 Ares Series - 2008

Used a Vision (Marvel Legends Hasbro Series 6 Ares Series - 2008), took off the cape and sanded down the face. Instead of the classic look I wanted to go for something a little more modern looking. Used a hot glue gun and some Citadel and Testors paints. Comments and suggestions welcomed.
Thanks, Lee.

Fred Raymond, a young man in the employ of Professor T. Horton (creator of the Human Torch) was expert on flame proofing who was conducting experiments with asbestos. Longtime exposure to asbestos ruined Raymond’s health and he left Horton’s employ. Soon afterwards Raymond married Nora Jones, a scientist who was herself seriously ill from overexposure to radium in her experiments. They honeymooned in Mexico and nine months later their son Thomas was born. They nicknamed him “Toro” in memory of the bullfights they had seen on their honeymoon. As Thomas grew into boyhood, his parents realized that they would probably die from their illnesses before he became an adult. However, they discovered that Thomas was immune to fire and Nora theorized that he was a mutant.
