Spider-Man Replaces The Human Torch
In case you didn't hear the news, The Human Torch, one of the original members of The Fantastic Four, died in issue 587 last month. This month, Fantastic Four 588 signifies the end of the comic series, with the group being renamed The Future Foundation. Not to worry: a new series begins next month with FF1, with Spider-Man filling out the new quartet. Some cynics may assume the whole thing is a scam to increase comic book sales. They would be right, and the scam is working. In any case, Vegas places the over/under at 10 months as to when The Human Torch returns to life...
