Amazing Spider-Man #657



In the aftermath of Johnny Storm's death in Fantastic Four #587, Spider-Man visits the Baxter Building to express his condolences to the FF. Peter trades stories of his fondest moments of Johnny with the rest of the team. After reminiscing, Reed shows Peter Johnny's Last Will and Testament. 

"Testing. This thing on? Um... Pete, you there? Pete? If you're hearing this, I'm sorry, pal. Sorry that I'm gone. Cause, well... I know how you feel when it comes to losing family. And that's what you are to me. Family. So... if you're thinking of this as my last will and all... I'm not leaving my sports cars or stuff like that... I'm leaving you the best thing I ever had...my spot on this team. A place in this family. The best sister, two brothers, niece, and nephew a guy could as for. They--We all love you, Pete. So, you up for it, bro? We're all here for you."

This issue should be read hand in hand with Fantastic Four #588. They both give the Johnny Storm character a great send-off and sets up for the new FF (Future Foundation) Title that introduces Spider-Man as a member of the team. 5/5
