Tomorrow is the big day!
That's right, Fantastic Four #587 featuring the death of the "Fantastic Four" hits tomorrow as Marvel has allowed local comic shops to sell the issue a day early.
A couple weeks ago, I stated why I think the Invisible Woman is going to semi-permanently disappear. Semi-permanently as, after Fantastic Four #588 it relaunches as "FF" #1 from Hickman and Epting -- and 12 issues later is "Fantastic Four" #600. Certainly, Marvel isn't going to miss this opportunity to have a bring back FF bonanza.
While everybody has their own choice as who is to die, I recently came across another theory and have to kick myself for not thinking of it.
Possible spoilers, ahoy!
Let's take a look at the "facts."
• The current arc is called "3."
• We have seen Ben Grimm aka The Thing on the "Fear Itself" covers.
• There are 3 hexagons on the cover of FF #1.
So we have the number "3" prevalent - and Ben Grimm.
3 members of the Fantastic Four - DIE!
The three being: Reed and Sue Richards, and of course Johnny Storm!
We also saw Spidey in a "FF" costume. We could be seeing a revolving Fantastic Four cast, which is another part of the theory.
Either way, we will find out tomorrow. I'll keep the spoilers off the main site.
My advice if you can't grab a copy early - stay offline! Heck, don't read the newspaper or turn on the TV and radio! Turn off your cell phones, too!
Seriously, your friends are going to tweet it, post it on their facebook and text it.
Back to the days of the cavemen it is!
