Silver Surfer; GUESTS: Gladiator; Beta Ray Bill; VILLAINS: Captain Atlas; Dr. Minerva; Morg; Terrax; CAMEOS: Tempest; Oracle
Gladiator is patrolling a sector of space when he is blasted by an unknown energy source. The Silver Surfer is relaxing on a paradise planet when he is attacked by Atlas and Minerva. After a swift battle, Atlas gives the Surfer a sob story and he leaves them in peace (little knowing that they plan to breed and begin a new race of super Kree). Morg catches up with Terrax and demands his axe back. Beta Ray Bill is also knocked out by a powerful mysterious ray and is taken to a formidable looking space fortress.
