The Silver Surfer was originally Norrin Radd, a young astronomer of the planet Zenn La. He worked for the alien Galactus, the mission to save Zenn-La from the planet-consuming superpower.

Galactus granted Radd enormous cosmic powers called the “Power Cosmic”. It enabled him to draw in cosmic energy into his body and then release it as a powerful beam of destructive energy, enough to destroy a planet. He had the power to change various elements. He was superstrong, and had the ability to heal human wounds.

The silvery appearance given by Galactus, made him immune to injury and harm. It could withstand extremes of temperature and also vacuums of space. It had also shielded him from those who could read and control minds. The skin has the ability to absorb life-maintaining cosmic energy for fuel

With his surfboard he explored the cosmos, searching for new planets for Galactus to take over. He betrayed Galactus, after a chance encounter with Fantastic 4. Galactus expelled him from Zenn-La, so he sought refuge on Earth, and was reunited with the Fantastic 4
