Silver Surfer Vol 1 15 001

Detailed Summary:
Once more deciding to become part of humanity, the Silver Surfer goes to a tailor to get a set of clothing. Upon entering the store, the salesman is shocked to see the Surfer and starts to run away. Only after the Surfer seals the doors does he agree to help the him find him the perfect outfit. As he's being measured, he reflects on his recent adventures and recalls his and the Fantastic Four's battle against Galactus. The Surfer decides that he should contact the Fantastic Four to see if there is anything that they can do to help him get past the barrier that Galactus has erected.

As he arrives at the Baxter Building, the Surfer overhears the Fantastic Four agreeing to help the military get the Silver Surfer. Mr. Fantastic notices the Surfer eavesdropping at the window and grabs him. He quickly shocks him with the power cosmic and, believing himself to have been betrayed, the Surfer flees with the Human Torch in hot pursuit.

The two battle across the city, however the Surfer eventually overpowers the Torch and knocks him unconscious. Seeing Johnny fall on to the subway tracks shocks him out of his rage. The Surfer recuses him from an oncoming train, but hides when the military arrives on the scene. The Surfer overhears the Torch tell the military that they were trying to contact the Surfer to get him to help them with their space program, not to take him prisoner. The Surfer, ashamed of his actions, departs.
