I learned that the Silver Surfer was pretty much a puss before this plot took place. So all this time he could have flown into Galactus and took him out, sparing numerous worlds...but he didn't. He even could have done this without really sacrificing himself, as he survived at the end, but even not knowing that which would you pick. Dying heroically taking out a great evil or being that great evil's bitch forever. But hey, didn't occur to 'ol Radd until he looked into the disturbingly blue eyes of Alba.
