They say here that in the next issue of the Fantastic Four comic, one of the main characters will die. What on earth is the point of that? Unless, I suppose, they then have to recruit another member to make up the number. Lame lame lame.
The Fantastic Four comic was the first to which I graduated after the early years of Peanuts. It was imported from the USA every month, and I went out and bought it each time for quite a few years (cue moans about if I had kept them all what a fun time I might be having on ebay today). Only Spiderman came close to them for me, despite a brief flirtation with the Silver Surfer and Iron Man.
My favourite was Ben Grimm, even before I knew this:
So, IT'D BETTER NOT BE THE THING MARVEL COMICS DO YOU HEAR ME?!
