I'll let you read this article to get the tragic news.
Marvel Reveals FF Death
Now a moment to digest it.
This is horrific news! First they insist that one must die, then that the FF as a team must break up. I don't know what to make of these truly shattering details. Life as we know it in the comics world is crashing to ground as the creation of Stan and Jack are brought down! What will replace them? Can anything?
Does this in fact signal the end of not just one comic book, but the end of an entire company? Will this be the end of Marvel Comics? If so, can DC and Archie be far behind?
The Comics Code has been demolished only this past week. Wizard has ceased to publish. And now we have to confront the very real possibility that the American comic book as we know it is coming to an end.
So full of crap! (Signaling ironic transition)
Was I born yesterday? Wasn't it only a few years ago that a clamor was made over the "demise" of Captain America? Does anyone not in the comic book world realize that his death was just a stunt, to attract attention and that Steve Rogers, the Captain America in question has been back a while and that Captain America the iconic figure never left?
It's inane to make a big deal over this, and it's actually pretty much just as inane for me to carry on about it even to the extent that this post does.
Marvel does get some publicity, but this pretty much has to be the last time they play this card in the big media. Cap went big, this might get some traction, but I can't see it working a third time.
You know what's really crazy. I think they should have killed off Ben Grimm. He's the heart and soul of the team and his death would have had some real potency through the Marvel Universe, both here and otherwise.
Here's a link to a post I did on the Human Torch several months ago.
