Benedetto Supino from Formia, Rome (shown here with a burnt sheet), The Real Life Human Torch.
Benedetto discovered that he could do something special, he could catch things on fire JUST through touch or even looking at them. Electrical objects malfunctioned near him and he would often wake up with his bed-sheets on fire. The fires would never hurt him and doctors/investigators couldn’t find the source of the fires. Some speculation about the connection between this and human combustion have been made.
