Fantastic Four

Factual error: When Reed and Sue are testing the Human Torch's powers, they claim that a temperature as high as the Human Torch's (5000 K to 6000 K) will "ignite the atmosphere and destroy all life". This is incorrect. Many experiments in the lab and on the field have produced temperatures several orders of magnitude larger than the temperature of the Human Torch on a similar scale. Nuclear explosions can generate temperatures in excess of 8000000 K, and temperatures produced by the largest X-ray generator (the Z machine) have been as high as 3700000000 K. Such tests have not ignited the atmosphere.
