Does Silver Surfer board powers him like in the movie FF2?

No. He doesn't need it to do ANYTHING that he normaly does .. like flight. he doesn't need the board to fly. It simply aids him.

Actually... He does need the board to fly and it responds to his mental commands.

Otherwise, yeah Surfer's powers come from within him.

No he does not need the board to fly. It just keeps him from expending his own energy to fly.

Where's that?

I've seen a half dozen times where he's separated from his board by villains who think his power comes from it and he corrects them by saying it's merely his mode of transporation. This was especially memorial when he fought the Runner and directly compared his board to Runner's legs.

Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe "Although the Silver Surfer could utilize his vast cosmic power for unaided propulsion, he generally employs his surfboard to fly since it does not require any of his personal energy to operate"

I guess when he fought the runner, he realized that his speed wouldn't help him and he wanted to save his energy for battle rather than flight.

I'm just going off having never seen him fly unaided without his board.

but if that's what the OHotMU says then...

Yeah, I know what your saying. I guess maybe it would take so much of his energy that it just isn't worth it.

Even though surfer can fly without his board why should he. He looks much cooloer on it and he couldnt be called the silver surfer. lol

Well, to be accurate, the SS does use a healthy amount of Sex Wax on his board, thus allowing him a greater degree of resistance to mass and velocity, as well as space debris...fyi

he can levitate or expell cosmic energies using the solar winds to fly without the board
