Power Cosmic granted by the astrogod Galactus enables god-like strength, speed, stamina, agility, and invulnerability to all known diseases and environments, and a heightened level of cosmic awareness enabling the perception of all forms of energy and limited telepathy.
Ability to channel cosmic energy can generate powerful force blasts or rearrange the molecular structure of energy or mass. Manipulation of cosmic energy can be used to heal the wounded or mesmerize others.
Indestructible "surfboard" responds to mental commands and can achieve interstellar travel at greater than light speed.
Cosmic Surfboard: Physically and psionically linked transportation device, resembling a surfboard, capable of interstellar light speed travel made of presumably the same substance which coats the Silver Surfer's body.
Note: It is reasoned that the Silver Surfer can utilize his cosmic abilities to fly without the assistance of his board, but is able to conserve his energy by not doing so.

Norin Radd's life was altered forever when the world-devouring astrogod known as Galactus came to consume his home planet Zenn-La. Desperate to save his world, Radd struck a deal with Galactus and became his herald - sent to search the galaxy for his master's sustenance.
Arriving on Earth the Silver Surfer and Galactus were resisted by the Fantastic Four. Touched by the humanity of a blind artist named Alicia Masters the Silver Surfer rebelled against his master. Galactus retreated Earth, but condemned his former herald to confinement on the planet he sought to defend. Eventually breaking his Earthy bond, he now soars the cosmic waves once again as the Silver Surfer.
