      You have the FF/Thor/Gladiator story backwards. The Dreaming Celestial put the entire future era that they traveled to in a dilated time bubble which stretched out time and caused people to move at a very slow rate almost as if they were stuck in amber. Reed Richards created portable vest that countered this effect thus Thor was wearing one of these vest. These vest allowed the team to move at their normal speed relative to the slow speed the the rest of the universe was in. To the naked eye they moved so fast that they were invisible. Future Gladiator who was coming back from a mission was able to see the FF/Thor team moving at the incredible speed they were at. Gladiator was able to accelerate his speed to match theirs so he could interact with them. If anything this shows that Gladiator has some crazy speed feats. I miss Walt Simonson's writing because this was a great series.

    Ok, lol, it was over 20 years ago and I was going from memory! I have to admit I don't remember Thor wearing a vest though. I remember they were loading a huge weapons cache. I'll have to check this out, as yes, it was a great arc.

It wasn't vests Thor, Iron Man and the FF were wearing, more like satchels. Thor's was notably visible in some panels and not in others. Some posters took this to mean that Thor's device was destroyed during his fight with Gladiator, and that he was compensating for the time dilation effect on his own from that point forward. But Walt Simonson was asked about this on the Thor board, and he said: "if Thor had a magical appearing and disappearing belt, the lousy artist probably forgot to draw the damn thing in all the panels."
