    ...again. :rolleyes: 

    Seriously, how many times have one of them "died"? Reed and Sue, once each (at least).

    Apparently they're going the Superman route and delivering the issue in an all-black polybag in January.

    It's obviously not going to be permanent (nothing ever is), and even though they're always blatant marketing ploys, I don't mind the "killing" of a major character as long as it's written/handled well (like Ed Brubaker with Captain America's "death").

    So, who do you think it'll be? I think it'll be Johnny or Ben (leaning towards Johnny since the Thing is also featured prominently in New Avengers).

    I'd think Johnny, but I'm gonna go Ben due to the shock value.

    Actually the only one of the ff who has never died before(at least to my knowledge) is Johnny.

    Maybe they'll shock everyone & kill Franklin. I guess he isn't one of the main four but he is a big part of their family. Have it not even be a supervillian. He steps off the curb & hit by a bus. SPLAT!!!

    I think it will be either Sue or Johnny .. but seeing how Marvel likes to throw us curve balls it could just be Valeria for all we know.

    The question should not be "Who will die" but how long before Joe Q reverses it through some McGuffin!

    I think Johnny. It would have the bigger impact than killing off Ben I think.

    I'm thinking Ben is safe....he's in New Avengers so it's not like "creative has no use for him" :p  I doubt it will be Sue since I don't think it would have a big impact. It wont be Frankin since we see Spiderman consoling him as part of the aftermath preview. For pure shock value I'm going with REED.

    Could be Ben as of last issue he was human. But in all honesty I'd rather they didn't kill anyone. But at least the writing team is pretty good.

    I mentioned this on another site, but since the character will 'die' in issue #587, that's only 13 from #600, which will surely be a big thing Marvel will want to hype. What better hype than the return of a 'dead' character?

    I've got my fingers crossed for She-Hulk. Honestly, I'd be cool with Johnny dying, because he honestly hasn't made an interesting choice for himself in a really long time. Plus, he's not a heavy hitter. Then again, it would be interesting to see a eulogy for Johnny, probably even moving. You can't get rid of the Thing, though, because he's the goddamned Thing. If you kill off Reed or Sue it makes the other character redundant, because they're one of the last GOOD super-couples that still exists.

    Unless they can promise us that whoever dies will never come back to life, I couldn't give less of a crap - There's no such thing as shock value in comic deaths any more... But in the spirit of the topic, if I had to guess I would say it'll be the Human Torch.

    We are all being set up. It will be H.E.R.B.I.E that ends up dying!

    And from his body a dimensional portal will open that will allow Mephisto to walk the Earth.

    ...H.E.R.B.I.E. is fucking evil.

    Sue would affect everyone else more. She's the heart of the FF, and will affect the relationships more than anyone else leaving IMO.

    Who's writing this? Mark Millar and Bryan Hitchs run on FF was absolutely superb.

    My money is on Reed, he just seems the most likely.
    Who ever it is i'm calling (called a while back) that Spider-Man will replace them on the team. He is smart enough to take Reeds place also.
