A Year of Cool Comic Book Moments – Day 256
Here is the latest cool comic book moment in our year-long look at one cool comic book moment a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the moments posted so far!
Today we look at the classic first meeting of the Silver Surfer and Thor…
In Silver Surfer #4, by Stan Lee and John Buscema, Loki has managed to extricate the Silver Surfer from his Galactus-imposed exile on Earth. Loki has done so because he wants to take Surfer to Asgard where he has tricked the Surfer into thinking that Thor is ready to take over Asgard in a bloody coup to become its tyrannical ruler.
So, naturally, the Surfer won’t stand for this (Loki also gives the Surfer some of his power to help him match up better against the thunder god) and he tenders an official battle challenge to Thor, which Odin accepts…
Pretty darn cool stuff – lots of strong contenders to “the” moment. Which one would YOU pick?
