3. Galactus goes around destroying planets.
4. Norrin Radd becomes Galactus’ scout to save his planet.
5. Norrin Radd is now the Silver Surfer.

Why would a pacifist scout for planets to destroy. He believes his job will be to scout out planets without intelligent life so that Galactus won’t destroy any civilizations. However, the transference of powers remove Norrin’s memories and his moral convictions. Luckily, during a battle with a weird alien villain, the Surfer’s memories come back slowly.
Silver Surfer Episode 2
Silver Surfer Episode 3
Ok, I admit that the Silver Surfer animated series is not one of the best cartoons ever made. I don’t even think it could appear in top 100 cartoons list. First, there are only 13 episodes and, if you subtract flashbacks’, you’d probably be left with 9 real Silver Surfer episodes. And second, the 3d animation also does not help this cartoon series shine. I might be biased because I don’t really like sci-fi cartoons. Of course, there is at least one exception, Duck Dodgers. I haven’t watched that cartoon series in ages. In any case, I don’t hate Silver Surfer 1998. I like it because it explains the famous Marvel character’s origins. I can hear the nerds screaming, “It’s all wrong!”
If you ever decide to watch the whole Marvel cartoon series, you will notice that it stops in the middle of a story. That’s because Silver Surfer: The Animated Series was cancelled. Marvel claims that it’s because of budget cuts. I believe them. If you did want to know about how the Surfer ends. There is an actual requiem for the Marvel character but it’s only in comic form for now.
