Silver Surfer #7
Issue(s): Silver Surfer #7
...and handles that quite easily.
For an encore, he heads to the Kree homeworld and tells the Supreme Intelligence to leave Zenn-La alone, and the Supreme Intelligence surprisingly agrees.
But then the Surfer really pushes his luck and tells Supremor to leave Earth alone too...
...and that's when the Intelligence uses his Soul Gem to suck the Surfer instead his giant collective brain.
The Elder Contemplator (really a Skrull, as we'll later learn) had been visiting the Supreme Intelligence, hoping to negotiate a trade of the Soul Gem, but the Intelligence says that he needs it to keep the pink and blue brains inside of him from fighting each other.
Meanwhile, Mantis is born into a new body on Earth (some cheesecake from Marshall Rogers, plus commentary on Mantis' lust for "honorable men").
She makes her way to the secret meeting of the Elders, who are discussing the Soul Gems and how they intend to use them to kill Galactus.
They then notice Mantis, and capture her, with the Gardener's control of plants proving superior to her own.
She does try to get a telepathic message off to Shalla Bal, but it goes unheeded.
A nice continued build up of the Elders' plot and the Kree-Skrull dispute.
Quality Rating: B+
Chronological Placement Considerations: I'm allowing the Surfer to be captured for an indefinite period of time before the beginning of next issue, but this should take place prior to Fantastic Four #312, since that takes place before Silver Surfer #10.
Continuity Insert? N

Just a heads up: I think the 3rd scan is broken.

Very excited at the time I had a cool new regular series in which we could finally see what the cult whispering was about in regards to the legendary Surfer. It was a fun era for bringing back favorites lost to time for a new audience. John Workman gives the title extra spark,does he not?
