Fantastic Four #18: Flame On 46.5

Fantastic Four #18, page 10, panel 4 Written by: Stan Lee

Drawn by: Jack Kirby

Inking: Dick Ayers

Lettering: Art Simek

After ten pages, Stan and Jack serve up what we've been waiting for - the Fantastic Four vs the Super Skrull. We start off with a Torch vs Skrull fight. Unlike in Fantastic Four Annual #4, which features two Human Torches, very little effort is made to distinguish the two combatants. Other than some work on the head of the Super Skrull's flame form, there is no point of differentiation for the reader. It's mildly unsatisfying, although considering that the Super Skrull is a shapeshift, perhaps unsurprising as well.
