This is a perfect 1970s comic. It starts with heroes being assembled, and has a situation comedy style opening-where’s Silver Surfer? Here he is!
Fantastic. Then the two of them go and get Hulk, have a big fight with an inconsequential mystical threat, and work out their shared misunderstandings. And of course we get the great “assemble” panel…
And now that that’s over, we have a team. So we can set up the next storyline: Now that they’ve found Silver Surfer, they’re going to help him leave Earth.
