By Matt Powell In 1939, the company that would become Marvel Comics got it's start, and now, 70 years later, we're still standing tall and commemorating seven decades of excitement! As part of the celebration, each Tuesday we will take a look at a landmark Marvel character, including vital stats, origin and biography in 60 words or less, essential issues you can find on Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited and more! So remember: don't just Make Yours Marvel, Make Yours '39!

FIRST APPEARANCE: FANTASTIC FOUR #48 (1966) 30-WORD ORIGIN: To save his planet from Galactus: Devourer of Worlds, Norrin sacrificed himself to become Galactus' herald. Reborn as Silver Surfer, Norrin continually searches for worlds to satisfy his master's hunger. 30-WORD BIOGRAPHY: Although he is aligned with Galactus, the Surfer detests unwarranted hostility and values life, perpetually intrigued by its potential.

[quote@tubaisland06 [quote@ThorneDragon :norinradd: Just when will we Ever see a Silver Surfer movie??! There is so much more potential and scope with the Silver Surfer than the Merc with a Mouth :dead: (whom is just a knock-off Spider-Man with a serious lack of moral values). Marvel could use a good Sci-Fi Epic to launch a number of other characters -- all it will take is a decent script! Give him a strong antagonist such as Thanos who is the anti-thesis of everything the Silver Surfer stands for -- Delve deeper into the mind of the man who is the Silver Surfer and the emotional turmoil his task as herald to Galactus tortures him. Bring in the Skrulls, the Kree, and the Nova Corps -- a truly epic Space faring adventure -- Let the Brood have their day too (maybe in league with Thanos, and the Fallen Heralds of Galactus -- Terrax comes to mind) -- there is a vast wealth of characters that could be drawn upon -- Political upheavals -- Shi'ar anyone? How about the StarJammers? The Surfer as Ambassador to the Stars --Hey Quesada -- read your discussion boards![/quote] unless of course they take cues from Fantastic Four 2 which was just sad. Galactus is not a giant space cloud. but if they could do it well i would like to see a silver surfer movie.ps - deadpool RULES :dead:[/quote] Hell yeah. And I'll second ur p.s. Deadpool RULEZ
