Isn't it weird that he's not around? I'm figuring Brubaker actually will eventually get around to bringing him back (I hope), but really, the guy's an android! If there ever was a guy who shouldn't be able to just die, this would be the guy!
Just have someone find the remnants of his body after he exploded in New Invaders and fix him!
So I'd bring the original Human Torch back - it's Marvel's 70th Anniversary this year, let's have him back for it!
