You know, this scene -- the whole Destiny Force idea -- made absolutely no sense to me when I was a kid, but the art, especially this splash, was so cool, I just rolled with it. Congrats on attaining your grail.

Okay, you can quit collecting now. Really. What else is there to get? If it wasn't me who got that page (and it wasn't) it couldn't have gone to a better guy. Congrats!

Story-wise this was a pretty whacky moment, but the art is astonishing, and anyway it reamains a pivotal moment in the Skrull-Kree war. Timeless!

INCREDIBLE. If my childhood enjoyment of Marvel comics could be summed up in a single image this might it. And the fact that you also own the set up page for it...? I am just floored. Thanks a zillion for sharing!
