        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.

    Just for the record, Thor got sucker punch twice in this fight. However, it wasn't the Hulk's blows that busted Thor up pretty bad- it was the Train Cargo he that probably weight millions of tons coupled with the Hulk's strneth and the speed generated by his strength coming down on Thor. If you look at the comic book, before this happen Thor was well, and even after the Hulk tried to kill Thor with the Cargo train, he hit Thor, stomp him and still he couldn't put him down. The writer HAD TO CREATE an X-Factor in order to bring Thor down to the Hulk's animalistic rage level; which was the whole point of the storyline- and that was that Thor degeneated to a prideful warrior w/o regard to collateral damage just to prove that he could defeat the Hulk. In another following issue, the writer said that perhaps in another future story Thor perhaps would do what the Hulk did to Thor...


You are talking about Thor 385? I would say Hulk was out of character grabbing the woman honestly. He is a monster at times but savage hulk would not have done that sort of thing.
