Synopsis for "Shalla Bal"

Finally free from punishment from Galactus, the Silver Surfer returns home to Zenn-La. There he finds that Shalla Bal's powers have restored the entire planet to a new glorious world that is balanced between nature and technology. He soon also learns that Shalla Bal has also been crowned ruler of Zenn-La. She accepts him back as her consort and he also agrees to become the defender of Zenn-La. Returning to site of his old home, the Surfer uses his power cosmic to create an exact duplicate of his old home.

That night, Emissary Ptakr of the Skrull Empire visits with Shalla-Bal to try and secure Zenn-La's support in the Kree/Skrull war. Shalla-Bal tells Ptakr that her people will not get involved in the war and refuses to pick a side. Ptakr sends two of his men to try and eliminate the Silver Surfer. However, the Surfer makes short work of them and turns them over to Shalla-Bal.

Shalla-Bal expresses her outrage over this attempt on the Surfer's life, and the Surfer as well warns the Skrulls to stay away from Zenn-La or feel is wrath. Afterwords, the Surfer and Shalla-Bal have a romantic moment, however they soon find that Shalla-Bal's role as empress of Zenn-La has changed her priorities. This leads to an argument, and the Surfer almost takes away Shalla-Bal's powers. Stopping himself, the Surfer decides to respect her position and leaves her without looking back. He returns to his home and converts it into a monument to Norrin Radd, however after a seconds consideration, he changes the name so that it's a monument to the Silver Surfer.

Norrin then departs into space, feeling that the starts and the galaxies of the universe are his true home.
