Marvel Comic’s most philosophic superhero, the Silver Surfer (sentinal of the skyways and herald of Galactus), has issued a challenge to the authority of the US Treasury by placing his own image on the American twenty-five cent piece, directly opposite the image of George Washington.
Is the Surfer trying to warn terrestrial authorities that the Earth is about to be consumed by his overlord Galactus?
Is he signalling the assertion of his own personal authority over “a world he never made” in a bid to eliminate mankind’s unfortunate propensities toward violence and irrationality?
Or, is it just a promotion intended to publicize the impending release of a new Hollywood film?
In any event, federal authorities have sworn vengeance.
