Synopsis for "Triangle!"
The Silver Surfer rushes back to Zenn-La to protect his home planet from the invading Kree. Meanwhile, Mantis heads to Earth to find out that the Elders plan to use the Soul Gems to kill Galactus. The Elders find out Mantis is spying on them and capture her. The Surfer travels to Kree-Lar to insist that the Supreme Intelligence leave Zenn-La and Earth out of the new Kree-Skrull War. The Supreme Intelligence is displeased by the Surfer's threats and uses his soul gem to render the Surfer lifeless.
The Silver Surfer rushes to Zenn-La in order to defend it from invading soldiers of the Kree race. The Surfer quickly immobilizes the Kree soldiers and issues them the same warning he gave the Skrulls earlier: Keep Zenn-La out of their war. However, the soldier says that he only acts on orders from the Supreme Intelligence. The Surfer decides to take it up with Supremor himself. However, he stops by to visit Shalla-Bal. The two former lovers have an argument over their failed romance and the Surfer admits that he has found the love of another before departing.
This other lover, Mantis, has just arrived on Earth by beaming her mind into a new plant body. There she finds the Elders of the Universe meeting in a forest. They are discussing the collection of the six Soul Gems, which they intend to use against Galactus to kill him. This death would destroy the universe so that a new one would be born in which they would be the oldest and most powerful beings in that universe. The Elders discover Mantis' eavesdropping and the Gardner uses his powers to bind her. She sends out a message for help through her connection to plants and this distress call is heard by Shalla-Bal.
Meanwhile, the Surfer travels to Kree-Lar to confront the Supreme Intelligence. He warns the Intelligence not to involve either Zenn-La or Earth in the current Kree/Skrull War. While the Intelligence agrees that he will leave Zenn-La alone, as it has no military benefit to their war, he refuses to not involve the Earth due to the Kree's long standing interests on that planet. When the Surfer demands again, the Supreme Intelligence uses one of the Soul Gems to absorb the Silver Surfers mind, leaving his body a mindless vessel to be disposed of. He uses his gem to keep the divergent minds of pink and blue skinned Krees that he absorbed from fighting each other. This, he explains to Nenora and the Contemplator, is why he can never give his gem to the Elders.
