Tintin, Space Ghost and The Silver Surfer



The Silver Surfer is one of the few characters that came out unscathed in the Fox movies.  I thought he looked and sounded great in the second Fantastic Four film, despite being in service to a lackluster plot and answering to a CGI cloud we were told was Galactus.  I wonder where The Surfer will appear again now that Marvel has the rights back.  A solo film?  A guest Star in a future Guardians of the Galaxy film?  Or maybe even joining Hulk, Dr. Strange and Sub-Mariner for a proper Defenders team?  There are plenty of places to use him, and I hope they don't make us wait too long.

This story serves as a direct follow up to the two-part tale where Tintin met The Watcher, and then had to be tracked down by Green Lantern and Space Ghost... and of course Silver Surfer and Space Ghost have met as well...

I don't know if this is your first tetralogy, here. But, I LOVE IT, regardless! :-D

Although, I can't help feeling that that spaceship is Plastic Man in disguise. ;-)

Why are they rushing to Oa? Is it to attend the wedding of Hal Jordan and Adam Warlock?

An interesting "sex toy" might be a "disembodied" voice box from a talking girl's-toy that is criticized for spouting sexist phrases (i.e. Teen Talk Barbie (from 1992), talking Princess Celestia, etc.) attached to a smartphone loaded with popular games (Candy Crush, Pokemon Go, etc.) as such device not only are great substitutes for mistresses, but are handled in a way that if done to a human female could be interpreted as molesting.

In these days of sexual harassment libel fears, such "sex toys" might be funny substitutes for $%#@#s (read: chicks).

One of the great things about how long you've been doing these is how you've built your own continuity, be it the on-going Wonder Woman/Captain America saga, or smaller arcs like this. Love it. Keep up the good work.

Picking up on Jim's comment, it might be interesting to see two (or more) of these arcs collide -- like the Power Couple as best man and maid of honor for Cap/WW, or Robo-Force meeting the Danvers Twins. (I've already mentioned the possibility of an Iron Beetle/Green Devil match-up.)

Oh, and I think that Silver Surfer would be a fantastic (pardon the pun) guest appearance in a Guardians of the Galaxy film. If Marvel can bring in a decent Fantastic Four movie, in fact, Galactus might be a good "next meta-plot" to follow the Infinity War.

@Bob Greenwade: good idea! I can see a wormhole opening up to a parallel-Earth where Captain America meets the Caucasian Human Torch...and thinks there's something familiar about him. ;-)
