The fight is on, and Johnny’s not doing well. The Super Skrull manages to daze the Human Torch, causing him to flame off and plummet from the sky. Thankfully, Reed’s on hand to catch him, spreading his body between skyscrapers and letting his elasticity break Johnny’s fall.

It’s a really lovely panel. For me, the fun comes from Johnny’s out-stretched limbs poking through Reed’s body as he gets caught.
