Captain Kerosene

In my "The Captain" post, I mentioned one of the names the Captain tried to use, but couldn't due to some else having the name, was Captain Kerosene. So, he is the guy who has that name.
Through unknown means, the Brit Gulliver Jones gained powers similar to the original Human Torch. As such, he would occasionally "ghost" for Human Torch during World War II. This reason this was due to his powers not being reliable. He worked with S.T.R.I.K.E. (Special Tactical Reserve for International Key Emergencies), a British S.H.I.E.L.D., until they disbanded. Kerosene didn't have good relations with S.T.R.I.K.E.'s replacements such as R.C.X (Resources Control Executive) despite working for them. He attempted to visit Jack Smithers, an old ally of his, when Jack was dying. However, Jack was kidnapped either by Mullarkey, Mys-Tech or both of them. Jones attempted to join D.U.C.K. (Department of Unknown and Covert Knowledge), but was dismissed as being unneeded. Kerosene was among the heroes fighting a rampaging Sleeper named Tommy. Kerosene used his full powers and seemly killed himself, Tommy and Plasmer. However, Kerosene and Tommy reassembles their bodies. Later, Timmy reformed and joined the heroes in defeating the remaining Sleepers. Captain Kerosene was nearly killed when he attempted to kill Aftermath, the final Sleeper, but was saved by Doorman.
Captain Kerosene can generate fire and fly. His powers were originally unstable. As such, he didn't attempt to test or push the limits of these powers. However, he now has control over his powers. Captain Kerosene is also immortal. As such, he was able to reassemble his body when it was turned to ash and regenerate back to normal.
