The Fantastic Four #600

The threats just keep on coming.

And, oh yeah, we learn a truth about the nature of the Negative Zone.

MASSIVE SPOILERS and some gore behind the cut.

The War of Four Cities continues.

The Kree invade.
The Annihilation Wave invades.
The Inhuman king and his wife launch THEIR counter assault.
Namor and his Atlanteans hold the line.

And Earth's defenders hold back the assault on all fronts..

But that's not whatyou are here to see, you've seen it dozens of times in the past 40 years of Marvel. THIS IS what you came to see.

This is how the Human Torch died.

This is what triggered his return.

Turns out you can't really die in the Negative Zone, as the Anti-Priest kept preaching.

Here's how they did it.

And after months of repair and combat arena events and meeting up with the Light Brigade (members of the alien Inhuman elite from the Badoon/Centauri/Dire Wraiths/Kymelian queens) we come to this.

Johnny Storm now leads the Annihilation Wave.

I'm not doing this story justice. You need to get this. It's one of the better "returns" yet to occur in comics.

Welcome back, Johnny.

This isn't Annihilus

Annihilus wanted to destroy everything (except the Negative Zone) to eradicate all threats to his life. He's all about living forever. Annihilus wanting to die is like Thanos wanting to live. IT'S NOT HIM.

Also can we get a warning up for the Johny Storm bug surgery fun kit? Thank you very much.

Given Richards' reaction, I'm guessing he was going for a bluff. It was super effective.

1. Your icon + "It was super effective," made me smirk (I rarely LOL).

2. Remember that Annihilus died and returned (damn you anti-priest, damn you!)? I think maybe Annihilus Jr. or 2.0 isn't the exact same. For one thing he's way shorter, like half as tall. Maybe he's just going through puberty. Teenaged hormone riddled emo annihilus - now that's funny!
