    the original "Human" TORCH will be back in the moders MU soon but wht will marvel do with him when the series is over?
    will he join the Avengers again?
    will he form a new (yawn) INVADERS team?
    will he act solo?
    will he work in mc'donalds?

    what do YOU think?

I think his "purpose" will be hard, there isn't much you can do with him at this point.

I don't see him joining the Avengers. Which writer would want him? What would be bring to any of the stories?

I can see Marvel possibly doing another Invaders title, but it's going to fail, again. And since they know it will fail, they might not even attempt it. I don't see Cap and Namor joining an Invaders team, so you're gonna have C-listers like Union Jack and Spitfire again?

Solo would be difficult, since again, there is nothing that unique about him. What kind of stories can you tell with the character? It won't sell, and be canceled pretty soon.

I honestly don't know, but I really expect pretty much nothing. I don't see the character being a big at Marvel in two years. I'm not even sure why Marvel is bringing him back. "He was the first Marvel superhero" is not a good reason. I wonder if this would have happened if Alex Ross wasn't involved.
