I'm going to try to resurrect a thing I started back when the forum first opened. I never got heavily into comics - I used to read Daredevil pretty regularly when I was little, but I got tired of getting 10 pages of ads to see 3 story fragments that were maybe 10 or 12 panels each. Unfortunately, this was a huge conflict of interest with my love for superheroes. So to learn about the guys everybody loves to argue about (and to maybe spark some conversation here), whenever I think of a superhero who looks interesting, I'm going to ask you guys to tell me everything you know about him and hope the threads don't just die. So who is the Silver Surfer? Where did he come from? What does he do? Why? What are his powers? From what little bit I've heard here & there, he's supposed to be super-powerful, as in godlike. Is that true? Help fill in a guy who's sad that he never had the chance to be a comic book nerd.
