The Flame was a thief and arsonist who terrorized the town of Smallville early in the career of its hometown hero, Superboy.

The Flame was soon apprehended by the Boy of Steel and served a lengthy prison term. Years later, Superboy's capture of the Flame was chronicled in the adult Superman's autobiography.[1]
