Johnny ‘Human Torch’ Storm Dies
“Fantastic Four” superhero Johnny Storm, also known as the Human Torch, was snuffed in the issue of the comic book that went on sale yesterday. Issue No. 587 is ominously called “Fantastic Four: Casualty.” “The death of the Human Torch is the first major move in the evolution of the legendary ‘Fantastic Four’ franchise and a necessary part of the larger story we will be telling featuring the beloved characters moving forward,” said Marvel Executive Editor Tom Brevoort. No word on how the remaining characters will continue or if the writers will change the “Fantastic Four” moniker. Actor Chris Evans played Johnny Storm in two “Fantastic Four” movies. He is now busy portraying Captain America.
