    After 50 years marvel comics has decided to kill the human torch! For thos of you who dont know the human torch is one of the fantastic four. This is hard to believe because I followed comics growing up and I've watched the many adaptations of their cartoon shows!

      Wow, I can't believe marvel actually killed off Torch.  This is almost as shocking as when they killed off Captain America.  However, I doubt seriously he'll be dead for long, as most comic characters often die then get revived in order to increase sales.  Of course, I could be wrong this time, but I wouldn't be surprised if he comes back eventually.  However, if he is dead officially, then I don't know how they would replace him.

          I think it was like a year or two ago, I'm not exactly sure, as I remember around the time when I was working on my "Super Heroes Assemble" hubs, someone mentioned to me that they killed off Steve Rogers in the Marvel Comics storyline.  Of course, I did some research into it after that; apparently there was like a Civil War where the government wanted all super powered beings to be registered like with the "X-Men" storyline.  However, Captain America was against super powered beings having to be forced to be registered and expose their identities, and inevitably he got shot.  Then they bring in Bucky, who's been supposedly been brainwashed by to become Winter Soldier for the Soviet Union.  However, he eventually goes onto replace the original Captain America.  I don't know if he still is or not. Or if they somehow revived Steve Rogers back to life, but that's all I know thus far.  Kind of sad, huh?  It kind of makes me wonder if that's the reason Bucky is being introduced into the new Captain America movie, so Marvel can have the option of doing that exact same storyline eventually in their movie-verse.
