Detailed Summary:
Angered over the outcome of his fight with Firelord, the Silver Surfer seeks out a distant area of space to be alone. Meanwhile, Nova asks Galactus to let her find the Surfer and console him after Eros had manipulated his and hers minds. Galactus refuses her request and she agrees to stay.

Captain Reptyl leaves Clumsy Foulup and his pirate crew on a remote world to protect his secret cache of weapons. While wandering the planet, Clumsy comes across a mysterious figure that knows his name. He runs away in fear.

In space the Kree and Skrull armies engage in battle, but the fight quickly turns with the entrance of the Super Skrull. Nenora watches remotely, but is occupied with a visit to Zenn-La and Shalla-Bal. She tries to get Shalla-Bal to contact the Silver Surfer, but she refuses to oblige her.
