Today we are going to talk about things which you’ll don’t know about Silver Surfer. There are a lot of superheroes in the universe of Marvel Comics but I have to say that this one right here, ‘Silver Surfer’ is one of my favorites as his appearance only is quite sufficient to spark the curiosity in the mind of a viewer.
On top of that, we have an incredible history of events and powers centered around him which makes him one of the most powerful superheroes in the Marvel Comics. But, there are 15 things which we bet you didn’t know about Silver Surfer’s Anatomy because these are quite incredible ones:
15. Unlimited Strength:
Silver Surfer is one of the most powerful superheroes in Marvel Comics and the biggest reason for that is that he holds Power Cosmic. Well, no exact level of his powers has been mentioned in Marvel Comics but there have been fights where we saw him fighting and lifting his enemies weighing more than 100 tons in the comics.
In Fantastic Four #55, we have seen him using the famous and powerful Power Cosmic in order to increase the strengths and powers he has. One of the notable things he has done is that he stopped Hulk and since then, the being on Planet Hulk still feels scred of him.
Also, he is quite similar to Galactus in the level of powers he holds but the biggest and popular thing is that he is the most powerful Herald of ‘Devourer of Worlds -Galactus’ and is the reason why he is one of the most powerful superheroes out there.
14. Indestructible Skin:
We all know that it was Galactus who turned Norrin Radd into Silver Surfer and has gifted him a kind of indestructible skin which looks like silver alloy. We have seen Silver Surfer getting a direct punch from She-Hulk in the comics The Avengers and we all know that it was Silver Surfer who joked by saying she bumped into his face.
Also, he has taken some punches from her cousin Hulk as well but we all know that even that couldn’t bring a single scratch to the man in silver. So, there aren’t many names in the comics who can bring Silver Surfer down to his knees.
13. Can Play In Extreme Conditions:
There’s a big reason why Galactus gave superhuman endurance to Silver Surfer. His main motive of making him a superhuman was that he wants him to travel into space and for which he surely needs a lot of endurance and the ability to adapt to any place or condition.
The biggest statement in support of this claim is that he can stand even against the pressure of Black Hole as we have seen that in the pages of comics ‘Mighty Thor’. Also, he can cross the atmosphere of Earth and will not suffer and heat, friction, or pressure.
12. Faster Than The Speed Of Light:
Silver Surfer is regarded as one of the fastest super heroes in the Marvel Comics and the man is capable of even entering into the hyperspace as it is the time when he surpasses the speed of light and we have seen that in Silver Surfer Annual #2.
The man can simply outrace superheroes like Beta Ray Bill and even Nova. The best thing in which I can compile his speed powers is that even if he doesn’t enter into hyperspace he will move faster than the speed of light and the man can do time travel also.
11. Lightning Fast Mind:
If you think he is like many superheroes out there who are really famous, powerful, strong, fast, but really do lack intelligence in them and we have so many examples of it in the world of Marvel but Silver Surfer isn’t one of them as the man is really intelligent and we have seen that in comics.
In the comics Silver Surfer #6, we can be able to see that he can scan every single planet in a galaxy in a moment of seconds and also he can read get the knowledge of anything he wants to in a matter of seconds as his mind is really quick and lightning fast.
10. Enhancement Of Senses:
We have to say that the Power Cosmic is one of the most important parts of this superhero and because of the usage of this Cosmic we have seen that the senses of Silver Surfer can be really incredible as he can be able to see every single change in the universe if he concentrates a little.
Also, he can be able to see people and living being on planets who are light years away from him, can also see things which are in a microscopic state, also seeing sub-atomic particles isn’t a thing of worry for him, also can hear things from all over the universe, and many more.
9. Doesn’T Need Air Or Food:
Well, this one seems to be the only point which you all knew before reading this list for sure because seeing Silver Surfer having a burger or some chicken wings in his mouth would’ve diminished his swagger and impact a lot. This is the reason why he doesn’t need food or air.
Silver Surfer doesn’t want to have air or food ever and can still do all the things he wanted to do as we know that once he went back to 13.7 billion years back in time only to chilled and waited for the clock to come to the present day. In other words, you can say he’s immortal.
8. Universal Threat:
This one is going to take you to the other side as we have seen in Annihilation: The Nova Corps Files #1, in which according to Nova Corps the man in silver has been classified as a universal threat because, in Annihilators #1, Ikon is the one who considered Silver Surfer as an Alpha Plus universal threat.
Also, the reasons for which are quite reasonable as we know that Silver Surfer has Power Cosmic and the only name who can stop him is none other than Galactus. Also, he has beaten names like Ego, Super-Skrull, Thanos, and many more.
7. Can Reshape The Past:
In Silver Surfer #6, we saw that X-Men simply went back in past in order to change the past in Days of Future Past. But, Silver Surfer is the man who went into the future a lot of times and saw the destruction of his planet by the hands of a famous conqueror The Overload and went back in past in order to erase the creation of Overload.
Well, we have to say that this power is really scary as he can able to change the events and which is why he is regarded as one of the most powerful names in the universe of Marvel Comics.
6. Can Phase Through Even Solid Matters:
There are a lot of cool things this superhero can do and some of the best things he can do are by manipulating himself he can be able to get through solid things and also get away from force fields even by using his cosmic awareness and powers.
Also, he can be able to manipulate matter by which he can change the shape and size of anything according to his choice without having any stress about the size of the matter. The man can create illusions and a lot of emotions in the minds of people who are around him.
5. Power Up By Himself Only:
Just when you thought that the powers of Silver Surfer are too much here is something for you in Silver Surfer Vol. 3 #31 in which we saw that he can be able to power up his abilities only by himself as while getting angry he came to know that he can be the most powerful being in the universe by that.
The man came towards this truth as he went on to meet The Living Tribunal when he was chasing Stranger and realizes that he can’t stop the war with Kree is when he started getting angry and was the point when both the Living Tribunal and the two battle stops him. After which he could be able to see the whole connection of the universe and got calm.
4. No Soul:
The saddest and cruel part of Galactus turning Norrin into Silver Surfer is that he didn’t mention or told Norrin that his soul is going to die in order to his transformation from a normal being to the Herald of Galactus and also close to a god-like entity.
But, it has been revealed in the storyline of Annihilation War that, anyone who keeps Power Cosmic with him loses the ‘auras’ in his body and is the reason why Silver Surfer lost his soul and is the reason why all the power came to a cost to Silver Surfer.
3. Healing Powers:
Well, we have to say this is really an understatement if front of a superhero like Silver Surfer as we all know that he is immortal and also invulnerable. But, on top of that, he also possesses the power of healing also which seems to be like quite funny.
But, we all know that even the most powerful entities in the universe of Marvel can come down to there knees by any new or strange thing. So, this is the reason why Silver Surfer has this power in his pockets that he can heal if someone comes up with a weapon who can damage him.
2. His Famous Board:
We have to say that one of the most superheroes of Marvel Comics, Silver Surfer have one of the most interesting things with him as his surfboard is the thing which has been classified as one of the most interesting things in the universe of Marvel.
Seeing him traveling on that board is quite beautiful but the main reason Galactus brought that board with the body of Silver Surfer because he doesn’t want him to stranded anywhere in the universe and can also call him by the help of that board.
1. Absorb Powers:
The biggest and most important aspect of Power Cosmic is that he can be able to absorb the powers of powers of any living or cosmic entity. He can simply absorb all the powers of his opponents which is the reason why no one can be able to stand a chance in front of him.
We have to say that he is simply one of the most powerful characters in Marvel universe and no wonder fans will think about the names who can beat Silver Surfer.
So, what are your views on the powers of Silver Surfer and do you think anyone in the universe can beat him and can hold him other than Galactus, or can Galactus really stop the man he created? Think twice and comment your answers down below.
