VANCOUVER—The proud (and widely unfamiliar) flag of Zenn-La waved high today at the 2010 Marvel Winter Games as its lustrous son, Norrin Radd, earned his planet’s first-ever earthly triumph of its kind. Irony beamed brilliantly as the Silver Surfer turned gold-winning snowboarder – and he was never even scheduled to compete!

“Listen, brah, I don’t know anything about pipes or whatever,” the Surfer said, suspiciously twitching with paranoia while explaining he would be communicating in the parlance of his fellow snowboarders to comfort them in his extraterrestrial presence. “I just swung by to jam on this hill for the coming of my man, G-Money. The big dude’s been looking for the, uh, right slopes ever since ski feeding, I mean, season started.”
Though vastly outshining the actual snowboarding competitors (in more ways than the obvious), Radd explained that his heraldry comes before sport. His intent was to find the steepest, most snow-packed mountain in the galaxy for the “vacationing” devourer of planets.
“Galactus also wanted to find the most tubular mountain with a real chill lodge,” Radd added. “Nothing makes G cozier than a big mug of hot chocolate. Big, big mug. Ever see a five-foot marshmallow? Chhha!”
Alas, the Surfer refused to accept the gold, citing his disinterest in such terrestrial treasures. Plus, the metal of his medal clashed with the sheen of his silvery, polished skin.
“I can’t wear that kinda swag, brohem!” the Surfer rattled. “What does this look like? The Jersey Shore?”
