    Thanks

    To sum him up, he's a ludicrously powerful being with a heart the ventures yonder. He's the kind of guy that asks questions and kicks ass later.

    Oh, but to recommend stories, you can read Annihilation: Silver Surfer for a more current read. He had an appearance in Cable and Deadpool recently, like, 1.5 years ago. Don't touch his last "ongoing" which hardly even featured him. If you're really up to it, see if you can find a bunch of random old backissues at your LCS for quarters and just peruse those. The Ron Lim stuff is great. Kinda. But Kirby is legendarily renowned as the best SS artist ever, and that stuff is old. Oh, give ol' wiki a try too.

    It would be....highly miraculous if it does.
    But IMAGINE, if this movie didnt suck....
    Not only would it be awesome for the comic fans (i unclude that as us)
    but as a movie, i dont really remember anything ever doing that.

    Starting out like arse, and then the sequels just get more awesome (i guess X-men did that but they didnt get that much better)
    And as crazy as it sounds...watching the trailer, i kinda identified those actors as the charachters they were playing (my huge major gripe with the first one...just didnt see anyone (apart from the Thing) as cast right...just felt sloppy as shit)

    Pick up Essential Fantastic Four and Essential Silver Surfer, it will give you a good primer of the backstories and what not.

    Silver Surfer was my favorite Marvel character as a kid. Loved him and had all of the action figures and comics of his i could find.

    Silver Surfer greatest of all time! :bowdown:

    I still haven't seen the first movie -- didn't see any rush to, they look so damn young it's hard to take 'em seriously -- but man, does the Surfer ever look cool! And that moment when he flipped from upside down, just melting up through his board -- okay, a little T2, but incredible all the same!

    That said, I don't like that desktop image -- I don't want to think of him with EYES. ;)

    The board is nothing more than an extension of him so no reason he couldnt do it.

    Don't think of it so much as phasing. Think of it as transmuting matter into differing colloidal forms for the moment he wants to pass through.
