Once a citizen of the planet Zenn-La, Norrin Radd lived a peaceful existence.
When the planet-devouring Galactus came to feed on his home world, Norrin went
to Galactus' ship to plead for peace. In exchange for sparing his home world,
Norrin agreed to become Galactus' herald. Given vast cosmic powers by Galactus,
Norrin became the Silver Surfer, searching the Cosmos to find planets for his
master to consume. Ultimately, the Silver Surfer rebelled, instead becoming a
cosmic force of justice.
