What If...? (1989) #15



During an attack on the Earth by Galactus, he was defeated when Dr. Strange confronted him with the ghosts of all the beings slain on the worlds he devoured. He would have died had Reed Richards not intervened and spared his life. Galactus would then go on to destroy the Skrull Throneworld, leading to Reed's abduction into deep space and placement before a council made up of survivors of the worlds Galactus destroyed to stand trial.
