Fading Flame

The news says that Johnny Storm of the Fantastic Four dies today.
Super Heroes die all the time.  They usually come back.  Sometimes right away.  Sometimes years later.  Sometimes they are drastically changed by the weird dimensions they wandered during their "death".  Sometimes they are exactly the same as before they checked out.
The interesting thing about The Human Torch's death is this:
He has never died before.
Fantastic Four is one of the longest running series in comics.
All 3 of the other characters have died in the past (or at least seemed to have...).
But Johnny has never bit the big one before.

I hope he goes out in style.
Flame On, Johnny!
Flame On...
