  1. “Anyone placing bets on when the series will return with a new number one, only to run 12 issues before switching to the old numbering at issue #600?”

    Surely they wouldn’t do something so blatantly crass? That would be disrespectful to the memory of a fallen hero.

    Ah-ha-ha-ha!

  2. Is Spidey sneaking up on Franklin to scare him or is Franklin sitting on the “side” of the wall with his knees dangling over the roof?

    Just seems an odd pose for not being on a wall…

    Based upon the solicits you posted on December 22nd, I’ve got my money on March.

    It’s the FANTASTIC first issue of FF! A bold new direction for Marvel’s First Family featuring new members, old friends, older enemies and uneasy alliances that will send shockwaves through the Marvel Universe. With stunning art work by Steve Epting and Paul Mounts, please join writer, Jonathan Hickman, on the second massive arc in the bold new direction for the ‘World’s Greatest Comic”

  4. It won’t last, they’ll bring the fallen FF member back in a year or so using magic or science. Marvel (and DC too) is event based not story based. They try to get better sales by having events, not good stories. Look how long Cap was ‘dead’ for, that was pointless.

  5. Johnny did not die in issue 587. We never saw him die. Plus does anyone remember who was left in the Negative Zone during the FF: Secret Invasion story……LYJA. No Torch will be back in 600. I think he was either taken by Annhilus or Lyja saved him some how. Unless a body shows up in 588 IMO he is far from dead.
