Grab a fire extinguisher! Open up a fire hydrant! Pet a Dalmatian! Marvel.com has assembled a countdown of the Top 10 Hottest Heroes!

These sweltering super heroes have been heating up the Marvel Universe for decades. The list begins at a simmer with the Son of Satan, Daimon Hellstrom, who first appeared in 1973’s GHOST RIDER #1. Then Sunfire lights up the sky—like he’s been doing since UNCANNY X-MEN #64. Next up is Pyro, who debuted in another mutant tale: UNCANNY X-MEN #141. Not to be outshined, Sunspot burns onto the countdown, having been illuminating the Universe since MARVEL GRAPHIC NOVEL #4. Coming in at number six, Inferno has made a quick climb despite only making his first appearance four years ago in INHUMAN #1.

We crack the top five with a classic: Ghost Rider—the hothead has been poppin’ wheelies and Penance Staring since MARVEL SPOTLIGHT #5. Then Firestar, who debuted in SPIDER-MAN AND HIS AMAZING FRIENDS #1, fires to number four. And, finally, coming in third and second place respectively, are the most famous guy-fire combos around: the Human Torches, Jim Hammond and Johnny Storm! Hammond, who first appeared all the way back in 1939’s MARVEL COMICS #1, gets overtaken for the silver medal by Johnny Storm, who debuted, of course, in FANTASTIC FOUR #1.
