Silver Surfer can't get a hang of earth customs, and drives his Squad buddies to frustration. So the Surfer sadly heads out on his own. Dr. Doom seizes the opportunity to capture him, realizing he can suck out the Surfer's power to combine fractals and make an Infinity dagger. Yet the Silver Surfer enjoys torturing his own captors (Abomination & M.O.D.O.K.). Fortunately, the Thing rallies the Squad to save their lost friend in an all-out assault on Villainville.
