Okay, The Fantastic Four, I read that comic book as a kid. My favorite character? Of course, the one they have just announced they are going to kill off; leaving?
The Fantastic Three.
First, from last June 2010, I guess they only today announced who was getting the hatchet to the storyline.
"The long wait is over as the conclusion of the Fantastic Four saga ‘Three’ draws to a close as we discover which one of the four falls. Johnny Storm aka the Human Torch sacrifices himself so that his niece, nephew, and best friend Ben Grimm aka ‘The Thing’ could escape from the Negative Zone. The Human Torch leaves behind a heroic legacy and an absence which will echo throughout the marvel-verse." From Comic Book Resources
"The following issue #558 will follow the remnants of Marvel Comics's first family though the month following the Human Torch’s death. Not only will writer Johathan Hickman and artist Steve Epting explore how Reed, Sue, and Ben deals with the loss of Johnny but the issue will also hint at big events just on the horizon." - From Nerd Reactor
Yet another end of yet another Era....
