September Splash! - Day Six

Today's full page splash comes from an issue of Fantastic Four where John Byrne was able to do his take on what would happen if the Fantastic Four had to fight Superman, as they faced off against Superman analogue, Gladiator, of the Shi'ar Imperial Guard, who was on Earth hunting down some Skrulls (disguised as the X-Men).

Captain America and Spider-Man were thrown in for good measure (under the theory of "If a huge fight was happening in New York, wouldn't other New York heroes show up?"), resulting in quite a ruckus.

At the end of the giant battle, we get this great splash, which is totally made by Thing's wiseacre comment.
