The Human Torch is Dead! Long Live the Human Torch!

NEW YORK (AP) —While Marvel Entertainment has made no secret that a member of the quartet, which was introduced in August 1961, would die, exactly who among the group would fall has been a closely held secret, until the release of issue No. 587.

It's the Human Torch, leaving teammates Mr. Fantastic, Invisible Woman and the Thing to pick up the pieces and move forward.
Fifty years after cosmic rays transformed him into a man ablaze, the Human Torch will burn no more as the pop culture purveyor of super heroes and villains embarks on an ambitious story line that ends the Fantastic Four as a quartet.
In the newest issue, on sale today, of one of the company's longest-running comic books, Johnny Storm's life is taken amid a massive battle.
