The Silver Surfer - Surfing the Cosmos With Marvel Comics!

Updated on July 3, 2018

The Celestial Being, Cosmic Power, And Witchcraft

"Let the power cosmos touch your brow and still the fury in your heart."

These are the very words that were uttered by the Celestial Being with both palms laid on the forehead of the evil one with whom he has battled and emerged as the victor.

The evil one falls into a deep hypnotic trance at once. When he wakes, he will be sans any anger, rage, or any other evil quality previously associated with him.

He sleeps, but not for a hundred years like the sleeping beauty did. Maybe he will be up and about in an hour or so. When he does, a completely changed creature will he be.

The power cosmos has done it's part. Once again the Celestial Being has used his power wisely, for the benefit of all living beings.

The evil one, known to many as the Abomination, has been conjured up by the forces of witchcraft, activated by some of the practitioners of this ancient art.

... Cosmic Power, The Energy Which Nurtures The Silver Surfer ... Powers Him Beyond The Realms ... To Areas Deep In Space ... Unexplored By Any Other Celestial Being ...

The Purpose - To Conquer Planet Earth

The Abomination was to serve the purpose of challenging and defeating the Celestial Being, and destroying him as a demonstration of the power claimed by those evil practitioners of witchcraft.

However, the the evil one had other ideas. Instead of serving his masters, he wanted to conquer and rule planet Earth all by himself.

The Celestial One is seen as an impediment to the Abomination's very own plan to conquer the planet. So, the Celestial Being has to be defeated.

The physical strength and cosmic power possessed by the celestial being resulted in defeat for the evil one after a somewhat lengthy battle.

The Abomination, completely outdone in this battle was indeed of no match for the celestial one.

Yes, the celestial one is nurtured by the power cosmos!

Clemency And The Power Of The Cosmos

Now the Abomination, badly defeated in battle is at the mercy of the very being he wanted to defeat and destroy.

The Celestial One shows mercy unprecedented and uses the very same forces which were utilized for victory over the evil one, to quell the destructive and murderous motives in him.

Here, the Power Cosmos, calms an evil mind and stills it, destroying all the fury in the mind of the Abomination, while refraining from destroying the evil one.

The star of this furious battle which resulted in the victory of good over evil, and the exponent of this great act of mercy, was and none other than the Celestial Being who surfs the cosmos on his inter-stellar surfing board.

Adventures In The Cosmos With Marvel Comics

Marvel Comics' Hero, The Silver Surfer Powered By Cosmic Energy - The Power Cosmos!
Marvel Comics' Hero, The Silver Surfer Powered By Cosmic Energy - The Power Cosmos!

Enter - The Silver Surfer, Marvel Comics' Super Hero!

Yes of course, our hero is none other than the Silver Surfer!

From the depths of outer space, from far far away, from beyond the distance of a million or more moons, he enters the earth's atmosphere like a meteorite, and with the fury of a spacecraft on re-entry!

The Silver Surfer, is a frequent visitor to planet Earth! Responsible for his very existence in the world of comics is the brilliant Stan Lee, John Buscema and company. Of course, marvelous Marvel comics has done it again.

"To me, my board" says the Silver Surfer, and that giant cosmic surfing board at once appears before him. He boards the celestial vehicle and takes off into the cosmos at speeds that would make any rocket scientist dizzy in disbelief!

The Will And The Way Of The Celestial Being

Surfing the cosmos at ease and at his will, the Silver Surfer has been gifted with the ability of exceeding the speed of light, while retaining his physical composition, thus defying another law of nature.

However, there is an occasional temporary setback like being banished to planet earth, and not being able to penetrate the invisible barrier that had been created to enforce the banishment.

That Barrier - Deep In Space

At times he feels the need to go beyond and escape into the infinity of space, to explore, meet, greet, re-unite, or whatever else his mind desires.

Hoping the invisible barrier has weakened with time, he heads for it, not bothering and not even being aware about its exact location, increasing his speed with consistency every second, what the scientists call acceleration.

The Laws Of Physics And The Surfing Board

The laws of physics do not recognise him at all. Thus he is able to decide on his rate of displacement when soaring the heavens. Exemptions are rare but they do occur.

His misfortune is that the barrier has not weakened with time. Bouncing back after the collision, his re-entry into the earth's atmosphere is viewed as a meteorite, glowing white hot.

Hey! Look, A Meteorite

Coincidences are never rare in works of fiction. So it happens to be a great stroke of luck for the one who witnesses the entry of this "meteorite." Then some strange curiosity prompts him to check out the fallen body.

On doing so, he finds a prize which will now enable him to change the script of an evil plan that he had previously formulated to gain control over all earthlings. The Celestial One has been recognized.

Now the Celestial One, unconscious from an unexpected re-entry into the earth's atmosphere, is a "guest" of those who practice witchcraft.

The revised script of the previously designed evil plan would be to conjure up a very strong entity, preferably evil, from a different realm, and use him to destroy the Celestial One.

And so begins the rituals associated with witchcraft, ending with the entry of the Abomination! Here is the tool they have procured to destroy the Celestial Being, and pass step one of their evil plot.

The Battle Starts And Ends

The battle could be arranged when the Surfer regains consciousness.

The defeat of the Celestial Being will be a sign of the strength and superiority of those who practice witchcraft.

The battle would be the major test and success here would ensure them victory over the entire planet.

Eventually the battle does take place, and results in victory for the Silver Surfer. This story starts where the battle ends.

What's With This Celestial Guy?

As for the Silver Surfer, the celestial being, what is his mission on earth? He is forever clad in a tight fitting silver colored outfit, well stretched across the enviable contours of his magnificent physique. However, unlike Thor or Superman he wears no cape.

The fabric of his uniform is neatly stretched even over the contours of his face such that identifiable features are retained. Although identifying him will pose no problem, as he is well known on planet earth.

Cosmic Energy - For You Too!

Misunderstood On Planet Earth!

He has never had the opportunity of directly interacting with earthlings and associating closely with them. As a result of this, he carries a very wrong impression of us all.

Most of the time he mutters to himself about the selfishness of the human species.

He keeps saying that earthlings will never do anything if it does not serve their own selfish purpose.

Although his uniform is only suitable for interstellar and cosmic travel, the Silver Surfer is often seen on earth in this attire.

Silver Surfer Or Otherwise - It's The Clothing That Maketh A Man

There is one occasion when he decides to clad himself in earthly garments. He probably wanted to make another attempt to socialize with earthlings with a view to learning more about our qualities.

He thus finds himself in a clothing store exclusively for men. The startled owner of the establishment fearing for his life attends to the Silver Surfer with more fervor than he would, to the King of the world. The fear for his life made him do so.

The Silver Surfer never really understood earthlings properly, nor did earthlings understand the mind of the Silver Surfer. Otherwise the clothing store owner would have had nothing at all to fear.

Next Customer Please

He attends to his unannounced guest with a lot of diligence. And when the outfit for the Silver Surfer had been selected and tried on for size, the clothing store owner addresses the Celestial One nervously saying "well you see, these clothes are the most expensive ones in the store ... if you don't want to pay for it ... well ... you really don't have to ... "

Cash Or Credit Card?

To this, the Silver Surfer replies, "Earthling, I have no desire at all to default you." Saying so, he waves his palm in the direction of an ashtray fixed on a large pedestal.

"Your earthly rates of exchange make no sense to me." "Perhaps if I cosmically transmute that ash tray into solid gold, that would pay you for your services."

Keep The Change - Celestial Style!

As the Silver Surfer leaves the store, clad in his new designer clothes, the stunned clothing store owner is left standing, clutching the pedestal on to which the ash tray is fixed, both transmuted into solid gold!

... concluded

      Hi Ben,

      The story starts halfway through the event and then the analysis takes you back to where the event actually started. LOL! I thought of starting at the most interesting point, and I did!

      Thanks a lot for your opinion and your visit. :)

      Hi BeatsMe,

      There's nothing to fear! The Surfer deliberately turned the ash tray and pedestal into gold as payment for the clothes he had "purchased." He had no intention of harming the store owner. The Surfer is a cool dude!

      Like you said, it's a good thing these things only happen in comics. If such things happen in real life, there will be heavy inflation!!!

      Thank you very much for reading my essay and commenting. :)

      lol. It was scary. Bet the store owner is grateful he/she isn't the one that became solid gold. :D Everyone will be scared if they see something different and shocking.

      Good thing these things only happen in comics. :)

      Countrywomen, What makes you think that ash tray was metal? You see it was made out of ceramic. So was the pedestal.

      Anyway, this Silver cat will convert stuff into gold in payment for any goods or services only if he transacts business with you.

      If you are interested in getting your junk converted to gold, I shall introduce you to someone who really can. His name is Midas.

      Thanks for your visit and your comment!
