Los Angeles, Jan 26 (THAINDIAN NEWS) After half a century, one of the “Fantastic Four” characters will be written out.

For years, the creators of the comic series have hinted that one of the characters would eventually die, but they kept it a secret as to which one would die. Now it is no secret anymore.

The character, Human Torch will die in the No. 587 edition of the comic series. That leaves only three of the original characters.

The character was transformed when he was exposed to cosmic rays. The Human Torch along with Mr. Fantastic, Invisible Woman and the Thing have been fighting to save the planet for all the while. That task will however have to be handled by the remaining three superheroes.

That task of creating the plot, which killed Human Torch was not easy for writer, Jonathan Hickman. He spent a year-and-a-half to get the plot right. Human Torch would now be killed in a battle.

The death of Human Torch will be the penultimate edition of the series and Marvel Entertainment intends to bring up another franchise that would replace it.

The senior vice president for publishing at the company said that, “The final issue of the Fantastic Four. Beyond that, we’re not ready to say exactly what we’re doing. There won’t be an issue 589.”
