"In Final Battle"
It's a battle royal as Terrex seeks to destroy the FF at the same time Galactus and the Sphinx square off for the fate of the Earth. The FF has been aged far beyond effectiveness in the battle and it is Johnny who defeats Terrex. With his friends dying, Reed must place his wife and Ben into cryo freeze to keep them from dying. Meanwhile, the titans slug it out, but in the end it is Galactus who defeats the Sphinx. As punishment, Galactus forces the Sphinx to relive his life over and over again, suffering an eternity living through the ages. Now that the Sphinx is defeated, Galactus turns his attention to devouring the Earth, but Reed has one last trick up his sleeve. He pulls out an Ultimate Nullifier, the only weapon strong enough to kill Galactus. Galactus is not willing to call Reed's bluff and leaves the Earth, for now. Reed lets Johnny know that the nullifier he has is a fake and he was using the Watcher to block Galactus' mind scan of Reed. Johnny must place Reed into cryo freeze to stop the aging process while he searches for a way to save his friends.
