Invisible Woman: Despite Reed's big brain, Ben's enormous strength and Johnny's ability to grow white-hot and supernova, Susan is quite possibly the strongest member of the team. Having raised Johnny since he was a child, Susan has always played the role of mother and is deftly able to keep the three men in her life in check. Unlike her brother and Ben, Susan is able to control her temper — both in battle and domestically. And though her powers of invisibility resulted from the shell she once kept herself in, Susan has since broken from it and is able to share herself emotionally with Reed. All too often, however, she finds her husband cooped up with one experiment or another and is tempted to flee to the warm embrace of Namor, her would-be lover. But, as always, her inner strength prevails and she sets aside her schoolgirl feelings for the king of Atlantis, remaining true to her husband.

Much like her mental strength, Susan's extra-human powers top even those of her male counterparts. From the start she could turn invisible, hiding herself from even the deadliest of foes. Later on, however, her powers would evolve, allowing Sue to not only turn others invisible, but to create force fields that can withstand any attack (just so long as she's able to stay focused), invisible "energy bolts" that can be thrown / projected, platforms that seemingly allow her to fly and weapons for hand-to-hand combat.

Human Torch: Johnny's a hothead, literally and figuratively. Having never truly grown up, the young man is prone to fights and arguments and is easily distracted by fast cars and faster women. His lust for fame fuels his childish need for adventure (and vice versa), and so Storm is always seeking the limelight. His impulsiveness has caused him to jump the gun and overreact more than once, and he's thus lost control of his ultra-powerful flame.

With the ability to encase himself in a plasma flame, fly at supersonic speeds, go supernova and project said flames at his foes, Johnny is truly a force of nature that can overcome just about any foe — but only when he keeps his head in the game and acts responsibly.

i am voting for Johnny here.

like it said in the Intro... Sue's powers are tied to her emotions and her mental clarity. I highly doubt that she would be able to keep a clear mind while she is fighting her own brother. plus, let us not count out the torch's abilitys here too. Sure he may not be able to blast what he can't see... but he sure as hell can blast everything else. eventually he would get her.

Sue will probably win this...

Fire needs oxygen. Woman takes it.

I agree. Invisible Woman also bested the entire FF (though She-Hulk was standing in for The Thing) as Malice in a 1980's storyline. It would take the combined powers of the Thing, Mr. Fantastic and the Human Torch to take down I.W.

The Human Torch has the ability to mentally control the ambient heat energy within his immediate environment, even when he himself is not aflame. He can reduce objects' temperatures (if they are in a normal range for existing on Earth's surface) to about 30 F, raise them to several hundred degrees, or extinguish open flames. His radius of influence is about 80 feet.

High temperatures plus mental anguish over fighting her brother will affect her ability to generate force fields, which means Johnny only has to go supernova and Susan is gone.
