We've seen a teaser with a simple Fantastic Four logo. The second had the team in their Future Foundation costumes. Here's a third teaser.

What the heck is going on? Will we see the return of the core team including Johnny or is this some sort of retrospective look at the team's history?

Maybe they set Peter on fire :(

Quesada should start drawing again. He's pretty good. 
 
Didn't Hickman say he wasn't bringing Torch back? ...Could you imagine if that's Jim Hammond?

No suprise here. As much as i hate to say, my guess is that Johnny's back.

I hope Hickman's not leaving the book.

Clearly this it is Fantastic 5. And they wear different costumes when the other gets dirty.

This was JoeQ's cover art for the 50th anniversary, I don't expect it to depict what's actually occurring in 4.

@StriderNo9: that was my first thought because its too soon to bring back the torch

Toro ?
Yeah, I'm thinking along those lines, or at least a robot that Reed created to replace Johnny since he has some smarts to him.

It isn't confusing! If you follow Joe Quesada on Twitter he explains it all. The artist gets to choose whatever they feel like drawing. Not indications of anything that's going to happen in the storylines, just cool art for an anniversary deal.

So, a couple of months ago, Marvel Exec Editor @TomBrevoort asked me if I'd like to do a promo piece for the 50 Anniversary of the FF.

The rules were simple, do any incarnation of the FF that you want from the 50 year history and design the piece for multiple usage.

#19 Posted by taqs (44 posts) - - Show Bio

I read somewhere that the Torch isn't dead and is captive in the negative zone, and will return in a zombi type state... I don't remember where this was, I read it a few months ago...

#20 Posted by The_Martian (36984 posts) - - Show Bio

Maybe this has to do with the Alternate Reed Richards. Like the Fantastic Four from his time?

#21 Posted by keith71_98 (387 posts) - - Show Bio

Don't worry! Marvel will leak the news out to USA Today well before the issue hits the stands so we will know soon enough!

We've been told the anniversary issue deals with Johnny's death (IE, shows it).  This is all this is.

Toro ?

that would be awesome

#26 Posted by rodneyrooney (5 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm betting time travel will be involved, or alternate universes.  They have alredy started involving the reed's from other dimensions.

Spiderman will get torch powers.

#30 Posted by Namor1987 (1891 posts) - - Show Bio

Probably just a flashback type issue. I'd like to see jim hammond come back
#31 Posted by TheMess1428 (2176 posts) - - Show Bio

ALTERNATE UNIVERSE FANTASTIC FOUR? Maybe? I don't know...

#32 Posted by Bobby X (1132 posts) - - Show Bio

I could have sworn that In all of Hickman's interviews, which i read a TON of, he said that johnny wouldn't be back for a while, that FF was the the evolution of the team he was building to, but he would definitely be back eventually... but this?  I just don't understand why they would bring Johnny back already. And if that's not what is going on then these teasers are just completely nonsensical and misleading lol. oh well... I trust in Hickman. Enough with the teasers already though!

                                  Yet when we saw the teaser that was just _________ returns. Everyone was clamering for Bucky to be returned from the dead (who had died just a few weeks prior). And they were the same people that it was too Early for Torch and Cable to come back. And alas it turned out to be Cable.

Joe Quesada posted this on his Twitter a while back before the first teaser came out, I think. He said it was for the Fantastic Four anniversary, so I'm not sure if it's really Johnny coming back or not.

I was just thinking the same thing, this stinks of alternate reality and the council of reeds.
#43 Posted by Omertalvendetta (383 posts) - - Show Bio

People... calm down, it's an anniversary issue; Quesada was tweeting about it when he was posting pictures about this cover.  Torch will not be back, RELAX!!

#44 Posted by _jackbauer (157 posts) - - Show Bio

Is this related to the "Season One" line of comics coming out?  Something about classic stories being retold with more contemporary art?

#47 Posted by CellphoneGirl (18764 posts) - - Show Bio

Either it's some sort of Flashback, or Toro could be joining. 
 
Also from what i read on Lyja's wiki page it says that she is in the Negative Zone as well.. (Idk if she is still there) What if they end up going there and they find her disguised as Johnny? That'd be messed up, but a very tricky idea that not many people would see coming :]

#48 Posted by jloneblackheart (5487 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't think they would replace Johnny with an alternate Human Torch.

I think it's just a cover.

But, I do not think Johnny is dead and he will come back as some kind of mind controlled villain or something. Bet!

Ultimate meets 616 Universe?!?! maybe... just a guess

Time travel and alternate realities intersecting is first hand in this series. Just saying.
