Synopsis for "Origin of the Silver Surfer!"Edit
The Silver Surfer flies through Earth. He spots a spaceship crashing into an ocean and manages to save its pilot, who turns out to be John Jameson. The Surfer brings Jameson back to his fellow astronauts, but they think of the Surfer as an enemy and open fire on him. The battle follows the Surfer straight to China, where he decides to speed things up and manages to outmaneuver the soldiers.
Next, he recalls his first encounters with the Hulk and Dr. Doom. He also remembers his life on his birthplanet, Zenn-La, and his beloved girlfriend Shalla-Bal. Surfer also recalls how the planet was attacked by Galactus and how he made his pact to save the planet, and in exchange he would search new planets for him to feed on, as the Silver Surfer! And finally, Norrin remembers his encounter with the Fantastic Four and how they freed him from Galactus, but that he is now in exile here on Earth. But he promises not to give up and continue exploring.
