"...astronomer 'Norrin Radd' of the planet 'Zenn-La', saves his homeworld from the 'planet devourer' 'Galactus', by reluctantly serving as his herald, in search of new worlds to consume.
"Imbued with a portion of Galactus' 'Power Cosmic', Radd acquired unlimited power, a new body of invulnerability and a surfboard-like craft on which he can travel much faster than light.
"Known as the 'Silver Surfer', Radd roamed the cosmos searching for planets for Galactus to consume.”
His board is mentally linked and moves in response to commands even when not in physical contact. The board is also nearly indestructible and can attack all opponents.
