• LOVE FOOD, LIVE FOODIE •
This week I went for an interview from someone who is out of this world. Literally. Some may see this as a struggle, I see it as an achievement. Get ready for the one and only Silver Surfer.
The Silver Surfer is a superhero, Originally a young astronomer named Norrin Radd on the planet Zenn-La, he saved his homeworld from the planet devourer, Galactus, by serving as his herald. Imbued in return with a tiny portion of Galactus's Power Cosmic, Radd acquired vast power, a new body and a surfboard-like craft on which he could travel faster than light. Now known as the Silver Surfer, Radd roamed the cosmos searching for planets for Galactus to consume.
Who is Norrin Radd?
Norrin Radd is my previous name before I become the cosmic being now known as the Silver Surfer. I am Herald of Galactus and serve him by finding him Planets to feast on. The job doesn’t pay and there are no contracted hours. I am bound to Galactus for life (although I have quit and rejoined several times now)
What makes you keep on coming back to earth?
The people of Earth are intriguing, amazing, savage, curious and many more things. It is all these traits which have kept me on Earth at times. The other reasons are that anyone in the whole Marvel Universe for whatever purpose keeps on coming to Earth.
This wonderful and strange planet has somehow become centre of the Universe with battles being waged here and villain after villain trying to either rule the Earth or destroy it. The Kree, Sh’iar, Skrulls and Brood to name a few have waged Wars here, whilst Thanos must be attracted here as he can’t get enough of destroying Earth.
Of course there are the numerous times my Boss, Galactus, has come to try and eat Earth and time after time he has failed. I have had to bring him here, stop him, rescue him and fight him on Earth. And now of course I have an Earth women travelling with me, but surely I will have to drop her back to Earth.
Did I mention my old girlfriend Alicia Masters was from Earth.
When do you think you will be in a Marvel Film again?
Good question. The Silver Surfer surely should have had a prequel by now or at least a weekly Live TV Series. I hope that come Phase 4 of Marvel films, the Sentinel of the Spaceways will soar again. I blame Fox for ruining a good looking and well voiced Silver Surfe
Where is galactus favourite place to eat? He has several places he really likes to eat but for some reason a Badoon world is his favourite. Says has the most flavour and a bit of spice too. In my opinion, planets in the Microverse look lovely, yet Galactus is too lazy to get there and he usually waits for those planets to die out first.
When he did come to Earth he did like the look of Nandos. This made me realise that he isn’t actually that fussy and is a lot about the quantity of food rather than Quality.
The Silver Surfer does not need to feed as the Power Cosmic sustains him. However I would never say no to a Calzone.
Why the name of the silver surfer?
Simply because my whole body is encased in Silver and a Surfboard is my method of transportation. Galactus named me as the Silver Surfer and so that is the name that I carry with me forever. I thought about adding a Super in my name but it became too much – Super Silver Surfer
which event scared you the most?
The Infinity Gauntlet was the most fearsome and universe-trembling/shattering event. Thanos had possession of the Infinity Gauntlet and even the combined forces of the Celestials, Galactus, Eternity etc couldn’t stop him. And all of it was just to please Lady Death. Surely you should buy someone flowers first or go for a drink before you do such a grand gesture like that for a woman.
The Annihilation Wave was also a gripping event which took us to places in the Negative Zone I never want to go to again.
Thank you so much Silver Surfer.
That is all.
