Hello Thomas, try this. I have thrown out some brackets and normalised the y
axis to make the plots equal.

fig1 = Plot[x, {x, 0, 10}, Frame -> True, PlotRange -> All,
      DisplayFunction :> Identity];
fig2 = Plot[(x^4)/1000, {x, 0, 10}, Frame -> True, PlotRange -> All,
      DisplayFunction :> Identity];

Show[GraphicsArray[{fig1, fig2}], Frame -> True,
    DisplayFunction :> $DisplayFunction];
