The The Surfer and the Spider! wiki last edited by jeffreyv2512 on 09/04/14 04:48PM View full history

The Silver Surfer saves the Earth once again when two meteors are about to collide above the Earth. He stops it from happening but is sent plummeting toward the planet.

He travels to the surface above New York City. As he is flying, Spider-Man accidentally webs to the Surfer's board. Spider-Man wants him to bring him down but the Surfer does not trust him. Spider-Man uses his web to make the Surfer fall from his board. But the board follows to save the Surfer from the fall, pulling Spider-Man with it.

The Surfer cuts his web but saves him from his fall as well. A boy sees the Surfer pass his window and travels to the roof to watch. Spider-Man finds the Surfer and through misunderstanding, they begin to fight.

The US Army begins evacuating the area where they battle. They fire on the Surfer, who calls his board. He does not know that the boy is standing on it though. He uses all of his strength to protect the boy while taking all the explosions from the army. The Surfer is weakened but may have finally gotten what he has always wanted, humans to no longer view him as a menace. The Army and Spider-Man realize that the Surfer is no menace, but a hero.

Note: This is the first meeting between Spider-Man and The Silver Surfer.
