Silver Surfer opponents?

Silver Surfer seems sort of invincible. Who does he fight? I saw an episode of the cartoon with this weird dude called Thanos or Thanatos and he seemed to be a challenge for the Surfer, but I don't know too much about the guy.

Re: Silver Surfer opponents?

He name is Thanos and he's far more powerful than the Surfer is, you can learn all about him at this site.

Possible opponents for the Silver Surfer who could rival him in power:

God(s)
Federation Starfleet/Imperial Starfleet Alliance
Chuck Norris

...that is all.

Re: Silver Surfer opponents?

His main villain in the original series was Mephisto, a.k.a. the Devil.

Galactus's other heralds, such as Firelord and Terrax, are also a match for him.

Re: Silver Surfer opponents?

Galactus
survived the end of the last universe, eats planets, made the human alien into the invincible Surfer after Norin bargained with the big man to save his planet. In return Norin helped Galactus snack on other worlds.
Silver Surfer's power cosmic allows him to travel FTL across the Galaxy, surive a supernova to the head, or atomically rearrange matter such a changing oxygen molescules to gold or whatever, Surfer has total control over the laws of physics
As power as Surfer is, his powers are totally dwarfed by Galactus

Thanos
Overpowered evil villain on the level of classic Darkseid, he has most of Surfer's cosmic powers, murders Superman level guys with just palm slaps, he has an intellect that puts Batman to shame. He is obsessed with technology, dark arts, mysticism and is bared from deaths realm leaving him totally immortal.

Imperial fleets
Skrulls, Shiar, Enslavers, Kree all those kinds of guys with big Empires and big spaceship and superpowered foot soliders

Old Earth Gods
Norse Gods, Greek Gods, Celtic Gods Akhenaten, Loki those kinda guys. Since lots of these guys are immortal and magic doesn't really obey the laws of physics these guys often give Surfer trouble

Dr. Doom
The one Earthling that gives him real problems, Doom is the geordi/o'brien/data of the Marvel verse but he uses his powers for evil and is a dictator in Eastern Europe . Doom has often invented devices that knocked Surfer on his butt

Elders
These cosmic beings have been around since the start of the universe. You have guys like Champion (who beats everyone down with his strength feats) or guys like Gardener (an immortal guy who is obessed with growing plant life)

Demons
Mephisto (Marvel's version of the devil), his son Blackheart and Elder Demons

Impossible Man
A guy with "Q" or Mxy like powers who can make himself into any shape imaginable.

Crossovers
Surfer has fought Orion, the Green Lantern Kyle, Cyborg Superman and Mr. Mxyzptlk in cross overs

Other Heralds
Heralds are often given powers very similar to Surfer and not all of them came from socities as advanced or peaceful as Norins. Some of them came from war torn worlds, others still serve Galactus in helping him find worlds. Ever since Surfer became free he frequently fell into conflict with other Galactus heralds. As powerful as they may seem on paper not all of them are so tough many of them are like wrestling jabronis. The only two who really gave Surfer trouble would be the herald known as Morg and the herald known as RedShift (a guy who once took on Surfer whil fighting inside a blackhole). Other heralds haven't been too much trouble for Surfer, Firelord maybe could go a few rounds with him
Terrax, no this guy is getting his butt beatdown

Others....
Once you get into Marvel guys like Hulk, Ironman, Wolverine, Thing etc
You start counting the number of times Surfer has beat these guys down and let them live without them being aerosolized

Re: Silver Surfer opponents?

How did that fight against Orion go? I know he has that weird astroforce and that thing he rides around on. He also has a mother box, but isn't he pretty much a Hercules type figure? How does he challenge the Surfer?

Re: Silver Surfer opponents?

Sometimes Silver Surfer has gone against guys like the Hulk and Fantastic Four too.

Btw, there is a trade called Rebirth of the Silver Surfer which is worth it for the Thanos story about the Gems.

Thanos went toe to toe with Odin, Firelord and Terrax are no match for him.

I meant they're a match for the Silver Surfer.

And then there's the other big Surfer villain - his own mind.

Re: Silver Surfer opponents?

You know, this has been bothering me for a while now. Will someone explain to me what's up with the bubbles in all these old comic books? Having a conflict with your alter ego produce pink bubbles is rather bathetic. It doesn't look like they're fighting so much as slow dancing in a disco.

Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman

Death is a she and Thanos is a stalker-BIGTIME! He's been wanting to nail her for years and years. He leaves annoying messages on her answering machine too.

Seeing as how he's dead that's not really true.
