Debuting in February as part of Marvel's "All-New Marvel Now" initiative, James Robinson and artist Leonard Kirk will bring us a rebooted Fantastic Four.

Here's some previous quotes from Robinson on the relaunch.

"What I hope to do is tie in their past without making it too referential and (touch on) how the past can affect the future. While I'm not reinventing the book, I'm certainly adding a side to it we maybe haven't seen for a while. We're going to see the fragmentation of the family due to villainous outside forces that are slowing picking at them and eroding them. The arc I'm going to be telling is basically the fall and the rise of the Fantastic Four, and especially the fall and rise of Johnny Storm. That whole world of superstardom and falling prey to the temptations and the travails of it will be an aspect of it based upon things that happen to Johnny as the Human Torch. Both things tie in with each other and are a part of the nefarious bigger picture. For me it really started to happen with John Byrne (in the '80s) where he started to really make Sue less of the Invisible Woman and, even though that's her name, give her this whole range of powers and abilities around her power — to make her in many ways the strongest and most versatile member of the team. They're all geniuses and all have superpowers and they come from exotic alien or underground locations but they're still kids.

No problem with it, though it'll take time to get used to the red. I remember Human Torch went red for awhile in the 1970s.

I remember that as well. The Fantastic Four have altered their costumes a few times over the years I think, a little change here and there, but usually they go back to the original style.

There was one point when Ben Grimm wore an exo-skeleton suit in the shape of the Thing to give him super powers he lost when he became human again for a while.

Not really a fan.  I never like any color change for the Four.  Blue is their color.  Think of it thematically: blue is the color of the sky, and as they are the explorers, the sky's the limit for them.  Red is too volatile a color, making them seem like the hot-blooded, flash-in-the-pan 90s "extreme" characters.

I also didn't like the Future Foundation costumes.  They're superheroes, so they can expect to get in a lot of tussles.  You know how hard it is to get stains out of white material?  And they go up against even more nasty stuff.  White costumes make characters look less action-oriented, more lab-bound (which works for Reed, but on Spider-Man at the time?  I still don't like that).
All the bad things in life only help you appreciate the good even more.
