In Fantastic Four #28 by Dan Slott and RB Silva, in the story Nullified, Marvel Comics' first family were put through the wringer by The Griever, who tortures them with their most likely death. Including that of Reed Richards at the hands of a future Ben Grimm.
And this Future Thing has a message for his visiting past self.
It's going to happen. Or the circumstances that lead up to it will. What is Reed Richards going to do that would lead Ben Grimm to commit this act? Today in Fantastic Four #30, with a Knullified Thing, what he was shown seems to return in his altered self when talking to Reed.
And after is all goes down, a man-to-man chat doesn't exactly resolve things.
The Death Of Reed Richards at the Hands Of Ben Grimm. It's coming…
FANTASTIC FOUR #30 KIB

I bought my copy from Piranha Comics in Kingston-Upon-Thames. Piranha Comics is a small south London comic store chain with a small south-east store in Kingston-Upon Thames's market centre, and a larger south-west store in Bromley, with an extensive back issue collection and online store. With a new store planned for Watford, if you are in the neighbourhood, check them out. Call ahead, they are offering curbside service for the next two weeks until non-essential retail stores open up.
