Silver Surfer (in Off-topic)

MissingNo March 11 2007 12:13 AM EST

Well, I heard about a Fantastic Four sequel with the Silver Surfer in it. I remember the cartoon I never watched on Fox as a kid and I was wondering, what does the Silver Surfer actually do besides ride space with his awesome surfboard? Does he have any actual powers besides flying around and being silver?

QBRanger March 11 2007 12:21 AM EST'

One mean individual.

MissingNo March 11 2007 12:32 AM EST

Oh. So he's a puppet with a rebellious streak. Eh. His powers seem pretty awesome. Too bad his power is wasted being a herald.

Drakon(DS) [Guardian Bros Inc] March 11 2007 12:35 AM EST

he does not stay a herald if i remember correctly he eventurally help the avengers and fantastic four(expect a twist in the movie)

MissingNo March 11 2007 12:48 AM EST

Yeah, I read that in PM's link. But if I had that awesome power, I'd definitely be a villain.

Silver carp rain down
tears of a hurt surfer ?
or a CB joke

No idea if thats right or not.

QBOddBird March 11 2007 9:20 AM EDT

Wasn't he in the older Spiderman cartoons as well? There was Spidey, some chick, and a guy that in my memory looks like the Silver Surfer...

Drakon(DS) [Guardian Bros Inc] March 11 2007 9:48 AM EDT

yep i think so

Thraklight Resonance March 11 2007 11:13 AM EDT

The Silver Surfer was the herald of Galactus, the devourer of worlds. FF managed to get the Silver Surfer to betray Galactus, and Galactus eventually cast him aside and replaced SS with a series of heralds.

In CB terms, Popsicle Man would be Galactus, so we'll have to nominate a member of his clan to betray him as the Silver Surfer. Mikel, in two months, perhaps?

Freed would be the Thing, sutekh would be Mr. Fantastic, and Glory would probably have to be the Human Torch given that she has the largest fireball in CB. I guess Bast could be the Invisible Girl.

MissingNo March 11 2007 12:46 PM EDT

But I want to be Invisible Girl. :( I'm watching the full Silver Surfer cartoon (13 episodes) on YouTube and he's seriously a tool. He doesn't do anything with all that power and it seems like everything in the universe can hurt him.

Thraklight Resonance March 11 2007 12:53 PM EDT

Well, we'll make Impulse the Invisible Girl then and bump Bast over to being the Watcher. :-)

Technically, Jonathan should probably be Galactus since he did devour CB1 ....

Relic March 11 2007 3:20 PM EDT

Why do people think I am a girl with the name Glory? I don't understand...

MissingNo March 11 2007 3:23 PM EDT

Probably because you have a character named Queen Beee. But I always thought you were a guy. :P

Relic March 11 2007 3:26 PM EDT

I bought the character from G Beee's wife.

MissingNo March 11 2007 3:29 PM EDT

Yeah, I know. Some others might not know. And "Glory" doesn't sound very manly. Take the name "Impulse". It's super manly and it instills fear into the hearts of people when they hear it. When I think "Glory", I think "morning glory", and when I think "morning glory", I think "flower". And when I think "flower", I think "girl". :P Although like I said, I always thought of you as a guy. You should change your name to BLOODY DEATH. No one would think of you as a girl then. :P

QBOddBird March 11 2007 3:31 PM EDT

When I think Impulse, I think 'Likes to wear pink frilly things'

MissingNo March 11 2007 4:04 PM EDT

Oh yeah? You know, the flamingo is an "odd bird". And it's a bright, flamboyant pink. It also has skinny girl legs and a big mouth (beak). Coincidence? I think not.

Thraklight Resonance March 11 2007 4:31 PM EDT

Opps. Sorry, I had Bast in my head when I was typing that sentence and the incorrect gender slipped in at the end. We're correct again as long as no one starts the "Bast is a woman?" questions again. :-)

Wait, Impulse wants to be the Invisible Girl. Impulse is a woman .... :-)

Slashundhack [We Forge Our Own Stuff] March 11 2007 7:26 PM EDT

Does Invisible girl worry about her wardrobe ??Oh did I count the syllables for that 575 thing I tried ?

MissingNo March 11 2007 7:51 PM EDT

I don't worry about my wardrobe. Real men (+women..) fight naked, as said by someone on CB.

QBOddBird March 11 2007 10:27 PM EDT

"Coincidence? I think not."

Heh, reminds me of when you were arguing that 9/11 was a conspiracy...*chortles*

MissingNo March 11 2007 11:38 PM EDT

The one that ended up being right? :P

mastinox March 12 2007 3:48 AM EDT

Silver is cool, Surfing is cool, Nuff said...

I will see the movie, just for Jennifer Alba!

I challenge anyone else, to come up with a more retarded answer!

Popsicle Man Supreme March 12 2007 3:55 AM EDT

lol isnt it jessica alba??

Flamey March 12 2007 4:03 AM EDT

tis indeed, Jessica.

AvoidCXT said that "Real men fight NAKED"

Popsicle Man Supreme March 12 2007 4:05 AM EDT

in that case i am a real man every night

QBOddBird March 12 2007 2:59 PM EDT

"in that case i am a real man every night

--Spawn of Duck Knee, 4:05 AM EDT"

What the heck are you during the day?

Impulse, if I had to choose a bird, I would most certainly choose the Flamingo. Either that or the Kiwi.

And you are crackin' me up over here saying you were right about 9/11 being a conspiracy. xD sometimes you truly are the best ever.

Drakon(DS) [Guardian Bros Inc] March 12 2007 4:11 PM EDT

hopefully he doesn't respond to that lol

MissingNo March 12 2007 6:49 PM EDT

Always am I the best ever. And 9/11 was a conspiracy. There's a lot of things that point to it, and some people just connect the dots.

QBOddBird March 12 2007 7:03 PM EDT

hahahahaha, classic Impulse awesomeness

[T]Vestax March 12 2007 7:07 PM EDT

Glory, I'd blame (Jenn)Glory (a.k.a. Glory (a.k.a. glorifiedkiller)) for your gender blender problem. Unfortunately she's not around anymore.

MissingNo March 12 2007 7:15 PM EDT

OB, come on, are you telling me there aren't signs that point to it being a conspiracy?

Halcyon March 12 2007 7:38 PM EDT

Wow. You can believe anything, if you force yourself to be subjected to it.

There is such a thing called "coincidence". Which, is what it is. So, yeah. Bush is an ass (though he's my boss) .. but, hey who likes their boss anyways? I blame it on the "Bush" name alone. Payback is all it was.

MissingNo March 12 2007 7:46 PM EDT

I know what a coincidence is. I also know that it's human nature for people to lie to get what they want.

Relic March 12 2007 8:41 PM EDT

It isn't a real name, does Bast denote gender? I don't think so, if someone's gender is in question I always ask to be sure so as not to offend. =)

QBOddBird March 12 2007 8:43 PM EDT

Bast denotes gender, as the goddess of fertility *snickers at the irony there*

QBBarzooMonkey March 12 2007 8:56 PM EDT

"Surfing With The Alien" - Joe Satriani, 1987

A classic, ground breaking, truly fabulous album inspired by a comic book character - that alone makes Silver Surfer wicked cool....
