And The (Temporarily) Dead Member Of The Fantastic Four Is…

Somebody died in The Fantastic Four today. For whatever that’s worth.

The casualty is Johnny Storm, brother of Sue and best buddy/antagonist of The Thing. Also one time JO Buddy of Reed, but it was just that one night and they both had a lot to drink and maybe Dr. Doom had hit them with a ray or something.

Oh well! It’s not particularly interesting. I’m sure Sue will be a mess and Ben will go off and be morose again, but I find it hard to care - and that’s not even knowing that while Fantastic Four is being ‘canceled’ and a new book is taking over the series hits issue 600 in just over a year, and it’s likely that they’ll bring back Johnny by then and resume the old numbering.

You gotta do better, comics.
