    Interesting. I wonder if it's in continuity or not.

    Invisible Woman dies? What the heck?:confused:

    I don't read that Fantastic Four series, so maybe that's why I don't know. But still, dang. So if she dies, will it be the Fantastic Three?
    Wow.:confused:

    She won't die. At least not in a way that isn't resolved quickly.

    Then again, JMS is writing FF, so who knows. But Kesel is writing this book. So it can't suck THAT hard.

    I wonder what's happening in Fantastic Four while this one shot shows up.

    Kesel's previous FF work has been quite crappy, actually. Still, I really don't think this will be what it looks like...

    Joe Quaseda had this to say in an interview on Newsarama:

    It's not going to be a member of the main FF...probably friends or family, maybe guys like Franklin or Val. Maybe even alternate versions...?

    Quaseda showed the cover to FF #586:

    I bet it's both Johnny and Sue that die. I don't see how this will work, but the story's in continuity.

    I do hope they explain Doom's return from his death in Latveria, after they had to kill the Thing in order to expel Doom from his body. This is a man who now has nothing: no body, no armor, no kingdom, no armies, etc. Of course, the cover dictates that he has his armor back...whatever..DOOM IS BACK !!! Quesada said, if that is the hammer of Thor, than what does that say about Doom ? Could it be Victor Von Doom has been reborn as a god ?

    Awesome cover..... and could Reed's ego stand knowing that Doom is truly worthy to wield the Hammer of the Gods?

    This is a wild speculation, but I don't know if this discounts the possibility of Sue resurrecting, but without her powers. After all, the wording of the solicits said "the Invisible Woman" is dead, not "Sue Richards." I know this sounds like splitting hairs; but way back during Byrne's Psycho-Man & Malice arc, the blurbs mentioned the last appearance of the Invisible Girl, when it fact meant that Sue was changing her identity to Invisible Woman. So perhaps Sue really will die; but given that Reed & company stormed heaven to resurrect Ben, I guess Johnny figures they can pull it off again. Only this time Sue will lose her powers.

    And if this happens before Civil War, that would explain that montage with Reed, Sue, and She-Hulk standing over a graveyard. (If all of this is in Earth 616.)

    I am curious as to the reference to FF 245, also by Byrne. Is there a clue in that old issue about what's to happen? Here's the cover from FFPlaza.com

    The story with the deaths of two FF members is by Karl Kesel, not JMS.

    As for Ravin Ray, the only thing I can come up with about that issue is that Sue ended up fighting a mysteriously powerful young man that turned out to be Franklin, who accidentally got aged by a device of Reed's that was supposed to monitor his mutant energies. He had a child's comprehension but in an adult body. I can't figure out if it would have anything to do with a death in the FF family, unless by extension they are talking about Alicia and H.E.R.B.I.E, who also appear.

    Um, yeah, Reed died too, remember? For good, never coming back, etc, etc, does that ring a bell?

    Thanks Iron Maiden. I remember reading a borrowed copy way back but forgot the cover and issue number. Don't tell me this time around will involve another manifestation of Franklin's reality-alerting powers, in an attempt to bend time to prevent the death or resurrect Sue? I'm also speculating if it's only Sue's body that dies, but somehow her soul ain't there.

    I hope Franklin and Valeria are not killed off.

    I hate these "Death In The Family" type stories, as a fan, they're a real pain in the ass. Take the death of Reed that Obi-Ron just mentioned. All that meant to me was that i had to deal with two and a half years of crap before it was inevitably retconned.

    NRAMA: While this question may sound sarcastic, it’s actually genuine. How can you have a title called Fantastic Four with 2 of them dead?
    JQ - That is pretty weird, isn't it?


    This makes me think its not what it seems. It will prolly end up being Willie Lumpkin and Wyatt Wingfoot or something

    I doubt they'll use this, but there was a story in the 90's Deathlok series where it was revealed that Doom had a Doombot factory cranking out Doombots. I can't remember if it was under the ocean or in the U.S. But if JMS uses this knowledge, then Doom should have resources scattered throughout the globe, whether it be Doombots, laboratories, or spare armor. So he may not have "nothing" after all.
