Blowtorch is thoroughly familiar with all military incendiary devices and flame projection equipment. To Blowtorch, the use of fire in combat is a science that predates the bow and arrow. He is studying structural and chemical engineering, because he wants to know everything he can about the weapons he uses or are used against him, and about structures he might be called upon to attack or protect.
When Blowtorch was re-released as part of the 50th Anniversary line, several variations were introduced. The yellow plastic of his accessories was slightly paler, a gold star was added to Blowtorch's left shoulder, and gold paint was added to Blowtorch's stand.
