Silver Surfer #2 (1987)

Silver Surfer broke out of the Earth barrier last issue, and now he returns to Zenn-La to his forever lover, Shalla-Bal, who is now Empress of the planet.  After fighting off a Skrull incursion, he proposes to her and she…Says no.  For twenty years we’ve been reading about his pining for her, and in less than one issue it all goes away.

I have to say, for writer Steve Englehart, that’s a pretty badass move.  Now he can do whatever he wants with the character.

Creators: Steve Englehart, Marshall Rogers
