The Down Among the Dead wiki last edited by pikahyper on 11/05/13 09:07PM View full history

The Silver Surfer is infected with a virus that strips him of all his powers! But it's only when the Surfer comes face to face with his dark side that he may be forced into battle.

Silver Surfer appears before living skeletons trying to kill him. He wonders if he is hallucinating from the virus he is carrying. One thing he does know is that he has no powers. The beings claim they are the billions of lives the Surfer is responsible for from being the herald of Galactus.

He tells them that he has been forgiven by all he has wronged and they tell him that they have given no such forgiveness. He is then met by the rotten remains of Garnok Rebbahn, who the Surfer himself destroyed. He informs the Surfer that this nether realm is quite real and it is penance for all his past crimes.

An overwhelming number of the dead attack the Surfer, who hides in a cave. In the cave he meets a resting Captain Marvel. He informs the Surfer that the dead follow one leader. Marvel says he will distract them so the Surfer can get to the leader.He gives the Surfer a sword and use and he charges into battle.

At the leader's tent the Surfer is attacked by his guard, a giant skeleton. Surfer defeats it and enters only to be faced with the Shadow Surfer- his dark side.

Bringing back Captain Marvel. 0

This is yet another of the documented appearances or usage of the Mar-Vell character post death. This one in particular plays on the plot hole left open in "Death of Captain Marvel" where his body and etheral form are separated before the point of death.  Why don't they bring back this character rather than use it as a legacy character?...
