    As a big Surfer fan I always sort of debate what is best for the character. He has always been one of the most versatile and powerful guys around. The physical aspect just caught up later. Are many of his stories melodrama. To a point, I guess. But I always found that to be somewhat interesting. It is a bit cliche, shall I say, the lonely god with the dilemma of when to use it sort of thing, but I think it works in alot of ways. Surfer for his most part is a god, created by a force of nature to find worlds to feed on so it makes sense he is incredibly powerful. Is he to much, maybe. There are not to many beings that can fight him head on but I think that is true for any of the big guns in either Marvel or DC.

    I do think as a character he seems to work best as an antagonist. One with the right intentions, like he was until recently when he was forced to leave Galactus through some really dumb plot element by Fraction. At least I think so. And he is definatly more set up to not be dealing with bank robbers or anything like that. The things he should deal with really should be big in scale. I would say the true is same for Thor honestly. Although I think Surfer is a much different character. What makes him interesting, at least to me, is very different.

On a scale of 1-10, or in detail, what do you think of the take of Silver Surfer in DEFENDERS now, bd? He's facing off against the New Men introduced, topically, in THOR 134.

And for anyone, here's a nice link with issue scans, ATM, of Hulk vs Thor and Surfer vs Thor for anyone interested:
