Righteo, here's ma Silver Surfer / Galactus fanfic...yes, it's related to the stuff that already has happened in the MU...but it's just my depiction of the story. Enjoy, and all comments would be indeed welcomed. It's still in the works btw... The Silver Lining A silver line zipped through the dark starry sky, it was misty but this glowing line could easily be seen in the starry sky. Suddenly, as a young child watched from his window, he witnessed the beam of silver stop. Running up to his fathers bedroom, he reached for the telescope. Spending a few seconds to get it ready in a hurry, he looked through it. Looking straight at the silver comet, which had oddly stopped, he stood back in awe. It was an amazing sight, and as he took another look he realised the comet had disappeared, perhaps to keep flying through the starry skies. He sat on his fathers bed and couldnt believe what he saw. Just took a detour, and I presume its more than enough for you to consume. I understand Im enslaved, but I dont approve of your hunger. Cant we at least move onto a different planet? This is more than you need. A man, cloaked in a silver substance said. He was speaking to another being, and they were oddly having their conversation on the surface of the moon. The man in the silver substance was hovering with a sleek, silver board. He was bald, and had no eye colour either. His muscles could easily prove he was tough. He was speaking to a man his stature, who wore a purple helmet covering with an emblem on the front. He wore a purple costume oddly enough, with a long dark pink cloak. He looked extremely old, yet had the same muscle structure as the man dressed in silver. The man in purple sighed to himself, as he was sitting and than he spoke. The other planets have done nothing for me, Surfer. I need to taste something challenging, for once. Dont question my motives; its how I live in this universe. He replied, in a very deep voice. The man addressed as Surfer placed his board on the dusty, uneven ground and sat beside the man. I managed to take an account of the history, and theyve had a rough past few years. Cant you at least try to satisfy your hunger elsewhere? The Surfer questioned, awaiting a response. The man dressed in purple stood up and crossed his arms. What a shame, for now they must face the most difficult force ever. The world devourer, Galactus! He boasted, with his arms held high in the air. Youre my herald, Surfer. Now, lets escort ourselves to the oddly coloured planet. He yelled, as he began to hover in the air. Its Earth, Galactus. Are you sure you can enter this planets atmosphere by the way? You were quite drained by sucking the life out the most recent planet, the Shi-Ars. Let me enter the atmosphere, and sort things out. After all, I am your herald. The Surfer suggested, standing up whilst he held his shiny silvery board. I indeed see what you mean, Surfer. I shall contact you telepathically, and hope you succeed in weakening the planet. Galactus spoke, as he looked straight at the planet Earth. The Surfer leapt onto his board which was already hovering, and he slowly moved towards the planet Earth. He looked back at Galactus and sighed to himself softly. He pulled the tip of his board up, as he entered the Earths atmosphere. His silver body was glowing red, and his whole body and board were glowing that colour. He struggled only the slightest, unlike any other person would. It was obvious he was a cosmic being, he was able to create sound, survive in space and even enter Earths atmosphere without a burn. Finally, he had reached the atmosphere of Earth, but for some bizarre odd reason he didnt concentrate and fell from the skies. Yelling in fear, he was falling into a vast barren rocky plain Meanwhile, a less cosmic being was being hunted down. He could leap at the most, a mile or two. He could possibly yield the most brute strength on Earth; he was the Incredible Hulk. The corporation known as S.H.I.E.L.D were chasing down Hulk; Nick Fury plainly had enough with the Hulk and wanted him imprisoned. It wasnt that easy for the Hulk to be taken down though, he was well known to give a good fight before he fell; at least he was easy to track. As he leapt onto a large rock, he took a second to catch his breath. S.H.I.E.L.D werent backing down this time; they had been chasing him for 25 hours now. As the Hulk stopped for a breather, his muscles were vibrating oddly he looked up, and jumped out of the way as the Surfer crashed into the rocks. The Hulk decided to investigate, and saw a shaken Surfer. He stood up, and searched for his board. The Hulk found it before him, and ran up to it. The Surfer chased him, and just stood in front of him. Pardon me, but would you be able to pass me my board? He asked, shaking the dust off his arm. The Hulk wasnt in a clever state, and accused the Surfer of working with S.H.I.E.L.D. Surfing man work with S.H.I.E.L.D. They not like Hulk. He spoke, with a muffled voice. Excuse me? Surfer asked, still brushing the dust and dirt from his reflective silvery body. You dont like Hulk. Anyone that gets in way, get hurt! He yelled, as his muscles grew twice the size in a matter of seconds. Surfer stepped back a bit, and looked confused. I have no idea what youre going on about green man, but I have no allegiance on Earth. Surfer answered, as he looked around at the sky. The Hulk ignored his comment and grunted, he stepped closer to Surfer, who was aware of his actions. Soon enough, the S.H.I.E.L.D helicopters arrived. Four of them began to circle Surfer and Hulk. Nick Fury leaned out of one helicopter, with a red bandana across his forehead. Bruce Banner is going down this time, folks. Hulks been playing us up for too long. Wait up guys; someones attempting a conversation with Brucey. What an odd fellow, this guy is coated in silver paint! Silver reflective paint, well obviously its his attire. Yet still, he even has a silver surfboard. Nick mumbled, more to himself than his pilot. What shall we do, attack him too? The pilot questioned, as it stopped circling. I dont know, I reckon we should wait and see what this has up for offer. Fury answered, placing his gun down, but not removing his hand from it whilst standing by the open door. The Surfer stood opposite the Hulk calmly watching his rage building as S.H.I.E.LD began to close in. Get out of Hulk way! He bellowed, as Surfer stepped back. Surfer looked up, and used his mind to telepathically contact Galactus. Galactus, Ive came across a being whos ready to start a brawl. Should I? He asked, awaiting a response. Galactus responded within seconds, I suppose I can test out your strength The Surfer equipped his board and ran back a few steps. He wasnt keen on hurting the Hulk, but being enslaved meant he had no choice. The Hulk breathed heavily, looking around. Out of Hulk way He spoke loudly, as the veins across his green arms moved. The Surfer looked down, and sighed to himself. Excuse me, my board? Surfer asked, as he still hadnt received it after asking so politely. The Surfer approached the Hulk, to get to his board. The Hulk moved to get in the Surfers way, and snorted. I dont know who you are, and Id be willing to know. But first, my board? The Surfer persisted. The Hulk shook his head from side to side. Right. Please dont make this hard for you. The Surfer pleaded, as he didnt want to hurt the Hulk. The helicopter with Nick Fury above them was in one place. Enough of the chit chat, boys. We havent got this being classified, and Im hoping itll show us what its made of soon enough. Nick Fury said, holding some documents in one hand. The Surfer walked back, looked down at the ground and cracked his knuckles. Immediately, he looked up and used his mind to accomplish an attack. The board which belonged to the Silver Surfer was levitating, then fiercely thrown at the Hulk. He yelled in anger, as he was thrown metres away from where he was standing. The Hulk landed on the ground; face first as the board returned to the Surfers hands. The Hulk wiped the dirt from his face, and spat out some mud. He wasnt happy, at all. The Surfer placed his board down, as it floated on the ground. With ease he hopped on, standing proud on the board. Look, Ive been ordered to show you my powers. As the herald of Galactus, I have no choice. You can make it easier for yourself, though. The Surfer claimed, as the board floated backwards. The Hulk growled and flexed his muscles. The Surfer was disappointed in the Hulks answer, so he chose to control a ball of cosmic energy in his right palm. It was a strange energy, a flashy blue colour. The Surfer closed his eyes and threw the ball of energy straight into the Hulks torso. It created a large explosion, and the Surfer flew back to make sure he was safe. Out of the smoke, the Hulk emerged. He was unharmed, yet extremely angry. Without hesitation, the Hulk leapt at the Surfer and grabbed his board. Due to his weight, the board began to fall. The Silver Surfer jumped up into the air valiantly and produced a back flip. The Surfer watched on as the Hulk held onto the board, then concentrated a larger energy into both of his hands. The Surfer yelled out, and threw both balls of blue energy straight at the Hulk. His board would be okay, due to it being so strong. The Surfers board was regarded as the toughest material across the galaxy. It was given to the Surfer after he offered to save his world to become a herald. The Hulk was thrown into the ground, and created a devastating crater. As the Surfer fell to the ground slowly, he commanded his board to help him from falling. As it did, and he stepped on it craftily. He wasnt impressed with himself, yet looked on at the Hulk. The Surfer landed beside the battered Hulk. The helicopters still hovered above, with Nick Fury watching intently. Galactus then spoke to the Silver Surfer telepathically, ordering him to step aside. It was his time to shine, to show the wrath of Galactus. A few clouds covered the desert, oddly enough. As the Surfer looked up, he knew what was happening. Purple light burst through the dark clouds, and one of the helicopters was under that light. Nick Fury watched on, he knew this was some strange phenomena that you dont see each day. He ordered the helicopter to leave the light, but just as he finished he looked upon an explosion. Nick Fury was horrified, he just witnessed a beam of light just destroy a S.H.I.E.L.D helicopter. The purple lights began to move and appear from the clouds, one had centred itself upon the bruised Hulk. The Surfer looked up and shook his head, but as he did so the beam of light began to levitate the Hulk. He awaked, to be confused by what was going on. The Hulk began to feel the same kind of feeling he had whenever Bruce Banner transformed into the Hulk. Nick Fury reached for his mobile, and dialled the number of Reed Richards. After a short while, Reed answered the call. Richards, youre not going to believe this. Our usual capture mission of the Hulk has turned rather bizarre. Before us, were seeing the Hulk being separated from Bruce Banner! Nick Fury yelled down the phone. Reed Richards didnt reply straight away, he was quite shocked. You mean, literally both beings are separating? Reed Richards questioned. Nick Fury didnt respond, and as Reed Richards sat down beside his wife he was confused to why the phone had cut off. Back at the Baxter building, Sue asked Reed what was wrong. Sue its not good. Nick Fury sounded terrified. I wonder if we may have something terrible on our hands. Just like those tablets spoke of. Reed rubbed his chin and stood up beside his wife, Sue Richards. Who we know as the blonde haired, blue-eyed Invisible Girl. Reed walked up towards the large windows and looked up. He held his hands to his side, and turned to Sue. Meanwhile, Nick Fury was commanding his pilot to leave the area immediately. Two helicopters had been destroyed, and Furys was the last there. Bruce Banner stumbled in his frail state, messy brown hair his brown eyes squinted; he had no glasses with him. His stubble seemed to be extremely rough, and he had no muscle mass. As his naked body stumbled, he recognised the large green figure in front of him. It was the Hulk, his alter ego. Bruce Banner couldnt see him all that well, but noticed him. Y-youre me Bruce spoke, trying to get his words out. The Hulk turned to Bruce, and cowered over to him. The Hulk was lost, without Bruce what was the Hulk? Im just saying, I didnt agree with what you did there. The Surfer spoke, telepathically. You dont need to. Oh, and Radd I dont need your opinions on my actions. Galactus replied. The Silver Surfer clenched his fist and looked down at Bruce Banner and the Hulk. He turned away, and the board flew him off into the sunset The doors to the Baxter building opened, and Nick Fury walked out alongside Steve Rogers. We knew Steve Rogers as the mighty Captain America, the leader of the Avengers. They stepped into the elevator to be taken to the top floor, to meet Reed Richards. As they arrived, a man greeted them. He was rather old, and was more than happy to welcome Nick Fury and Steve Rogers. Reed stood beside the window, and turned to the two who had just come in. Reed Richards seemed to be doing well, the Fantastic Four had just neutralized all of Dr Dooms activities, and Latveria was home to many mutants. Much like a second Genosha. The last they saw of Doom, was when he fell to his death at the defeat of Latveria. The Avengers had been doing well themselves, all seemed fine in the world. Recently though, Steve Rogers and Iron Man investigated an unknown force in Africa alongside the Fantastic Four. They had come across stone tablets foreseeing the events of Gah-Lak-Tus. They were fighting off the unknown force known as the Shi-Ar. It was around that time when Scott Summers had realised his father was still alive, under the control of the Shi-Ar. The two Avengers and the Fantastic Four sent the Shi-Ar away, only for them to leave an undeniable weapon of destruction. It was named the Ultimate Nullifier. It wasnt in any shape of a missile, or gun for that matter. The Fantastic Four took this piece, for further investigation. Reed asked Steve and Nick to sit down, and he sat beside them. We have a situation, its Galactus. Reed spoke, clasping his hands together. Galactus, how do you mean? Nick Fury questioned. Steve continued with the questions. Yeah, who is Galactus? They both were given a glass of wine, as if the Baxter building has became a luxurious home for the Fantastic Four. Then again, with all the fame and money they received it wasnt surprising they had someone serving out drinks. Reed turned to the window. Its crazy, isnt it? Theres somebody up there, waiting to devour the world. He spoke, as he pointed up into the air. Nick Fury laughed, which turned into choking after drinking the wine. Steve didnt look too stunned. I beg your pardon, but devour the world? Nick Fury questioned, with a large grin on his face. Well, in all fairness Fury nothing is impossible. Steve commented, intrigued by what Reed was speaking of. Technically speaking, I cant see it happening. But Rogers is right, nothings impossible. Follow me, gentlemen. Reed Richards stood up and walked up towards two odd pedestals, which held two stone tablets on top. These are the stone tablets we received when we encountered the Shi-Ar. Look at the designs; see what looks like a light there? Piercing straight into the centre of the Earth. Nick Fury stood beside him, sipping on his wine. You are saying that youve decided that these tablets link with the attack on Hulk earlier? That some threatening planet devourer is coming our way? Reed, I admire your work and ideas but seriously. Nick Fury spoke. Fury, you should look at this tablet then Steve Rogers said, picking it up and pointing to a graphic of something that resembled a surfer. Nick Fury almost dropped his glass of wine, as his jaw opened. Reed Richards smiled and walked up towards the window. If you look closely, one image resembles the Ultimate Nullifier we picked up as well. Coincidence? Reed questioned. We cant go searching for something we dont even know exists Nick Fury claimed, standing beside Reed Richards. As Steve Rogers stood, staring at the tablets he noticed the sign of the Nazi engraved on it, oddly enough.
