Spectacular full splash page original artwork for the story, "Hero" for Fantastic Four #285 (Marvel Comics, 1985) by John Byrne (pencils) and Al Gordon (inks). This was an intriguing tale that explored the darker, yet unintentional consequences of hero worship.



"A kid died today, Sue, died because of me. Because I never stopped to consider what the Human Torch might mean out in the real world.," laments Johnny Storm who considers retiring as a superhero due to the death of a young boy who ignited himself to be like his idol, the Human Torch. Nonetheless, the Beyonder convinces him not to give up on his career and he takes flight once again on this superb full splash last page of the story, "Hero."



The tale ends with a timeless quote by F. Scott Fitzgerald, "Show me a hero, and I'll write you a tragedy." Signed by John Byrne.
