March 12, 2014 - What in the world?
This is just so bad. So bad.
So bad. SO SO bad.
Please help. So bad. Pain.
Wait. The paper stock. It's nice. Uh...
The Silver Surfer buys a suit?
The problem with a character holding omnipotent power - is that he can do anything. Except, of course, be in a story that really tells anything new at all.
I wish that these stories could tell something - or bring back some of the real conflict - and for now, all that Silver Surfer can do is try to assimilate himself - and then complain about the lack of ability to really function in any kind of a normal way within the society.
Here, for example, he is able to unlock doors with his mind, and change a metal ashtray to gold. But a suit alteration? For that, we need to bring in a guy. And of course, he tends to be from the miserable side of the planet.
One positive thing - the conflict comes from one of the few characters that has any hope of fighting with the Silver Surfer - Human Torch. And although Silver Surfer runs into the barrier - YET AGAIN - he still really has no idea how to use his brain in these fights. The end of this run cannot come soon enough.
