Human Torch was a super weapon created by the Nazi organization known as HYDRA. They intended him to be Iron Man's greatest foe, and he was intended to kill him. The first couple of androids built were failures, as they were unable to remain on fire without melting. Eventually they managed to build an android capable of harnessing and controlling fire, which they dubbed the Human Torch.
Facing Iron Man
Human Torch was sent to attack Tony Stark in his home, and he was successful in setting part of his mansion on fire, but Tony quickly suited up and attacked the Torch. Iron Man's first priority was putting out the fire on his house, but Torch made that goal difficult. He eventually managed to put it out, but the Torch was still attacking him. Eventually Iron Man was able to knock out the android, but instead of going after HYDRA, he kept it and decided to reprogram it.
Iron Man got to work right away rewriting the android's mainframe. He gave him human-like qualities, as well as a speak function. He also allowed the Torch to keep his memories of HYDRA as well as giving him a new goal; being a hero. Once he was completed, Human Torch thanked Iron Man, and wished to take his vengeance on HYDRA, and he agreed, but first, he called the other Defenders to assist in the attack, as well as offer Torch a spot on the team, to which he accepted.
