Euphoria is a living planet with a special adaptive atmosphere. It was found by the Silver Surfer and his companion Dawn Greenwood when they were looking for a new planet for the inhabitants of the now-destroyed Newhaven to live in.[1]

In order to protect itself from the survivors' grief, Euphoria's atmosphere medicated its inhabitants and treated them for their depression, inducing them in a state of constant happiness. However, it also started influencing the actions of its new inhabitants with the intent to make their lives better. Months after staying at "New Newhaven," the Surfer sensed something was wrong, used his powers to reveal the planet's true nature, and Euphoria revealed itself as a living creature. A group of the survivors decided to leave the planet as they didn't want to be Euphoria's puppets, but the vast majority remained on it.[2]

Following the death of Dawn Greenwood's father Reg, Dawn requested the Silver Surfer to return to Euphoria. Due to Euphoria's nature, the planet created a construct of Dawn's father, with which Dawn passed time once in a while over the following 67 days. Silver Surfer and Dr. Fuzmyer monitored the situation to ensure Euphoria was used as a treatment to help Dawn cope with her loss, rather than a way to escape from reality. After Mama Hub helped Dawn finally overcome her grief, she and Silver Surfer bid Euphoria and its inhabitants farewell once again.[3]
