After another clash with the Hulk, the Surfer aided the Defenders against the demonic Six-Fingered Hand and their hellish masters, including Mephisto. After aiding the Avengers against the Molecule Man, declining an offer of Avengers membership, attending the funeral of seemingly deceased Defenders teammates Nighthawk and Valkyrie, and participating in another Avengers-Defenders clash orchestrated by alien menaces Nebulon and Supernalia, the Surfer finally pierced Galactus' barrier with the aid of Reed Richards and escaped Earth. But he discovered Zenn-La had been devastated by a vengeful Galactus, barely capable of supporting life. Worse yet, Shalla-Bal had been abducted back to Earth by Mephisto.

He then feeds off this energy and uses it to power his other abilities.. Stories that could be done in one are stretched to two parts.

In the planet of Zenn-La, Norrin Radd became the herald of Revka Termelune. Revka ruled Zenn-La using his telepathy enhanced by machines stationed throughout the planet. After being trained by Revka as his successor, Radd turned on his master and broke his control over the population which plunged into chaos and destroyed itself. The Surfer was expelled from Zenn-La and roamed the Universe for a planet which Revka could control.

When Reed Richards sought out a power source for his Cosmic Cube he locked onto the Surfer's power believing him to be a star. Radd landed on Earth and saw the population as unhappy and suffering. Using this opportunity to redeem himself, the Surfer summoned his master Revka to the Earth.

Increasingly pessimistic about humanity, the Surfer tried to befriend fellow outcast the Hulk, but the man-monster's violent temper drove him away. Next, the Surfer took pity on the Mad Thinker's abandoned sentient computer Quasimodo and gave it humanoid form, but he was forced to petrify his new creation after it proved to be criminally insane. Convinced by now that humanity was a savage race that could only survive and evolve if the planet were united against a common foe, the Surfer decided to become that foe.

He was tested by Ravenous, an agent of Annilius, and dispatched him with little to no effort. He also destroyed a whole planet by himself after his upgrade. This upgrade also came in good use when Thanos created a machine to keep the Surfer and Galactus in check and set it to his own power output, so that he could only open it, but the Surfer was able to match (while severely weakened ) Thanos' power output and free himself and Galactus, which demonstrates how much more powerful he is with his latest power upgrade.During their continuing journey to explore the universe, the Surfer and Dawn found themselves attempting to outrun the collapse of the Multiverse caused by the final incursion.

Despite this, as the Builders continued their war, the Surfer continued his struggle, saving what few he could on other worlds from the Builder onslaught. With the help of Phillip Masters, the Surfer created a clay replica of himself in an attempt to have it tell him his blocked memories. To show him the answer, it sent him back to the Earth year 1947. He traveled to Zenn-La to find a beaten Galactus and a destroyed world. Zenn-La had been destroyed by The Other and Galactus had created the illusion of Zenn-La for his future herald to return to.

Norrin eventually decided to travel to Earth, and became a regular fleeting visitor of the Greenwood Inn under the disguise of Norville Rapaport, watching Dawn grow up and spending time with her with each visit he paid. When Dawn was abducted by the Incredulous Zed and rescued by the Surfer's past-self, "Nor-Vill" silently followed them through their many adventures until the point they traveled back in time. With the past Dawn and Norrin out of the picture, Nor-Vill ditched his eons-old disguise and returned to his true self, the Silver Surfer. Norrin returned to Earth and delivered the news of Dawn's fate to her family. He also convinced Eve and Costas to copy their essence and that of their baby into Holo-Pods so they could reunite with the Holo Dawn in Inkandessa 4.

The Silver Surfer is a great vehicle as he serves as a unique observer of human kind, forcing us to look at ourselves in unique ways. While the dialog has the trademark Stan Lee-isms, the themes of Silver Surfer's loneliness and frustration with human kind are wonderfully evoked One of the noblest and most tormented cosmic entities in the universe, the Silver Surfer treasures freedom above all else, but has often sacrificed his liberty for the greater good. He was born Norrin Radd on the planet Zenn-La, part of an extremely long-lived and technologically advanced humanoid race which had created a worldwide utopia devoid of crime, disease, hunger, poverty, and want of any kind. His father named him after revered scientist Norrin Konn, the man responsible for raising Zenn-La from barbarism to utopia. Norrin Radd's mother Elmar, ill-suited to this stifling environment, eventually killed herself.Template:Silver Surfer Vol 3 100 Urged on by his atypically ambitious father Jartran, Norrin was raised as a grimly intellectual youth, encouraged to seek knowledge, advancement and achievement rather than the aimless hedonism which had come to dominate Zenn-Lavian society; however, a disgraced Jartran would later commit suicide himself after he was accused of idea theft (though not before he had taken a new lover and fathered another son, Fennan, unknown to Norrin). Despite his lifelong lover Shalla-Bal, Norrin grew into a restless soul who longed for challenge and struggle, immersing himself in histories of Zenn-La's adventurous ancient past. Galactus did not even notice Nova’s pleading, but the same could not be said for the Silver Surfer, who almost immediately grabbed Nova by the neck, and their battle commenced. At first, due to the Surfer’s swift attack, Nova was unaware of what hit him, but he soon regained composure and tried to reason with him; the Surfer however, showed no intention of stopping. After a relatively short fight in which Nova found himself outclassed, the duo finally landed on Orbucen again, at which point, the Surfer gave his reasoning: he did not wish his master to see him fraternizing with “lower” life forms, and took the fight away in order to speak to Nova, freely.

As soon as the Surfer returned to Newhaven in order to give Dawn the opportunity to return to Earth if he wished, Galactus arrived as well. The billions of inhabitants from Newhaven were inspired by the Surfer's origin to propose Galactus to become his herald, but he rejected them, as their respective planets had already been destroyed and they were nothing to him. As Galactus had never destroyed the Earth, Dawn proposed to become his herald. The Surfer tried to prevent Galactus from transforming Dawn at the same time he muttered his motive: his love for Dawn. The Earthgirl's sacrifice inspired the inhabitants of Newhaven to evacuate their planet and give it to Galactus in exchange for the girl. Newhaven was destroyed, but the Surfer swore to become the herald of its survivors in order to find them a new planet to live in.

The Surfer, angered greatly by Elyna’s death, strikes at Galactus straightforwardly, only to be caught by him. With Galactus ready to destroy him, the Surfer is surprised to see Earth’s armies attacking their former deity. Galactus is a God no more.

Before Galactus’ departure, the Surfer asks him to keep his pledge, and never attack Earth directly again. One unrealized Marvel movie from the 1990s was 20th Century Fox's Silver Surfer, which was to have been directed by Aussie filmmaker Geoffrey Wright (1992's Romper Stomper) Once most of these anomalies were dealt with, only the duplicate Silver Surfer remained. The Shaper made Dawn choose between one of the Surfers, however, Glorian was impatient for the universe to be finished and killed the Shaper, whose power had been depleted during the creation of the universe. Glorian revealed that his ultimate goal was to break free from the Shaper's commands, for which he had waited until his master was weak enough to kill him. The Surfer and Dawn managed to escape from Glorian and bring back the Queen of Nevers, whose heart had been recreated in this new universe. The Surfer was forced to choose between Glorian's universe and what remained of the rest of the Multiverse. However, at that very same time, the old universe was brought back.

The Power Cosmic gives the Silver Surfer incredible strength and he has fought some of the most powerful beings in the universe including Thor, the Hulk, Thanos and Beta Ray Bill.During his travels, the Surfer also met his long-lost brother Fennan. However, Zenn-La and its people later seemingly vanished, and the Surfer came to discover that his home-world had been destroyed in the 1940s by the mysterious, all-powerful entity known as the Other. The Zenn-Lavian world and people he had encountered since his leaving the service of Galactus were "re-creations" of the originals. Galactus, after finding Zenn-La utterly decimated by the Other, recreated the planet and its inhabitants in every detail so when the Surfer left his service (as he knew he one day would) he would have a home to return to. So accurate was this new Zenn-La that it convinced not only the Surfer over the years but also convinced the Skrulls, Kree, the demonic Mephisto and even the Celestials. Why the "new" Zenn-La dissolved was never made entirely clear but it was likely the result of Galactus' temporary absence from the universe due to being caught in the Ultimate Nullifier's blast.

The Surfer showed his impressive powers by easily defeating two of the most powerful members of the Revengers at the same time - Iron Man and Thor.

As he departed, he created a massive explosion to destroy his enemies.When the Silver Surfer lead Galactus to the Zaraxians' homeworld, the magically-powered race fought back and subdued the Surfer.

The alien sorcerer returned and banished Galactus to the Mystic Realms, where the latter begun consuming the magic, unbalancing the universe. The Surfer and other cosmic figures went to the Mystic Realms to stop him, as science and magic had begun merging together, causing chaos.

The Silver Surfer's board allows him to move at unimaginable speeds. He has even demonstrated the ability to enter the time stream under his own speed.While visiting Dawn's family on Earth, the Silver Surfer fended off a Zenn-Lavian invasion led by none other than Shalla-Bal, who had become the successor of the mantle of the Keeper of the Great Truth. Using a powerful reality-warping device called the Illuminatrix, the invading aliens attempted to replace all of Earth's culture with Zenn-La's. Norrin stopped the Zenn-Lavians and reversed the damage caused by the Illuminatrix, though at the cost of all traces of Zenn-Lavian culture in the universe and his status as a member of his people. Before returning to space, Norrin reunited Dawn with her estranged mother, Libby Windham, though the reunion did more harm than good. After I gave up Spider-Man then someone else did Spider-Man, and someone else did the Fantastic Four and Doctor Strange and the X-Men and all of them. I felt that it was kind of nice for me to have been the only writer of the Silver Surfer, so I felt a little bit disappointed when somebody else did it. I would have liked to have been the only person. Had I known they were absolutely going to have the book done, I would have found the time to do it myself. I didn't really have time but I would have made the time, rather than have anybody else do it. ... this is not at all a criticism of Steve [Englehart] or of Marshall [Rogers, artist on the series], it's just that it's one book that I would have liked to have always done myself. [emphases in original]
Norrin is able to control the power of his cosmic blasts. At their upper limits, he can project energy with enough force to destroy entire planets. This is his most commonly displayed power and by far the most aesthetically pleasing to see on a comic book page.In this reality the Carnage symbiote bonded with Silver Surfer and later called himself the Carnage Cosmic. He battled Spider-Man and the Avengers, but it wasn't until Firestar used her powers and Norrin became conscious enough to realized that the only one way to destroy the symbiote, he flew to the sun, burning himself and the Carnage symbiote with him.
Aside from the Silver Surfer, the article stresses that right now, some six Marvel mutant properties are in development at Fox between 2019 and 2020, and that until the Disney/Fox merger goes. Silver Surfer may have more useful powers than any other hero in the game. Really the only one I wouldn't use is Silver Dash. They have have some utility. Cosmic Beam and Molecular Mix-Up hit hard. Power Surge and Surfer's Rage are good with crowd control. Finally, there are two boosts that are difficult to choose between The Silver Surfer Episode Guide -Marvel Prods. Comic book superstar, herald of the planet-eating Galactus, and idol of surfers everywhere, Marvel Comics' Silver Surfer finally made it to television in 1998. Like many of Marvel's Silver Age heroes, the Surfer was a co-creation of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, who introduced the character in the. Kirby was tired of characters that required spacecraft for transport in outer space so he had the Surfer employ a telepathically controlled surfboard to propel him at astronomical speeds throughout the universe. At first, Stan Lee was unsure of Kirby's extra character in the Galactus story because of this unusual design, but after becoming more familiar with his motives and role in the story, Lee finally accepted the character for the storyline and the Silver Surfer was born.

Despite his oath, to watch and never interfere, The Watcher tells the people that for a millennium, the teachings of Zenn-la have been a beacon of light to the center in a universe darkened by chaos and strife. Now in the hope that this light shall not be distinguished, I bring you the most dire of warnings. He tells them that the being called Galactus is approaching thinking that Galactus was only a myth. The Watcher tells them that Galactus has only one purpose, feeding on their planet. He goes on to say that Galactus is neither good nor evil and that other life is of no significance to him. The Watcher then says that the people on Zenn-la have the hearts and minds to reach out to others and that they're ways have changed the destinies of whole galaxies and that they must change they're own.
