I recently found this question while browsing the site, and the accepted answer says the image never came from the comic books. However, I clearly remember that my first comic book issue had that exact scene. I've been looking for it ever since, but I haven't had any luck yet. It was a Spider-Man and Fantastic 4 Crossover.
Media: Comic Book
When I read it: 2006-2008
Setting: NYC, Baxter building(?)
Characters: Spider-Man, Fake Spider-Man, Fantastic 4, Baxter Building receptionist
What I remember:
- Spider-Man goes to the Baxter building to apply to the F4. He gives a long-winded introduction to the receptionist and says she can address him by any or all of those names. She responds with something along the lines of "Alright, have a seat in the waiting area, Mister Man." (Burn)
- Image of Spidey pointing at Spidey, with none of the police able to tell the two apart (in linked question.)
- Johnny gets an epiphany and grabs both spiders (without burning either of them) before dropping them off of a tall building. Peter shoots a web to safety, but the imposter doesn't have webs, so he starts screaming and flailing. Torch delivers him to the police.
- The last panel featured a Q&A with the illustrator. One reader noticed that there were some very subtle differences between the 2 suits and asked if that was deliberate. The illustrator confirmed that it was indeed intentional so astute readers could tell who the fake was.
What it's not: this one from 2007.
