Becoming a Herald of Galactus
Norrin Radd seemingly had a similar had history as his Earth-616 counterpart. He was the lover of Shalla-Bal, but despite being in love with Bal, he was dissatisfied with his life. When Galactus attempted to devour Zenn-La, Norrin confronted him with a proposition: he spare Zenn-Lan in exchange for becoming his herald. Agreeing, Galactus used the Power Cosmic turned Norrin into the Silver Surfer.
The Surfer arrived on Apokolips to prepare it for Galactus’ arrival. He encountered Orion, who had defied Highfather’s order not to come to the aid of Apokolips. Orion felt it was dishonorable to stand by and allow Galactus to consume the planet. He engaged the Surfer in battle but was quickly defeated.
Not long afterward, Galactus arrived and prepared to consume Apokolips. Despite being extremely weak from hunger, Galactus easily overcame Apokolips’ defenses, including an assault from Darkseid himself. As Galactus prepared to consume the planet’s energies, his technology revealed that Apokolips, despite the abundance of sentient humanoid life on it, had no life energy of its own to consume. Having no further business, Galactus and the Surfer departed.
