Silver Surfer #53
Issue(s): Silver Surfer #53
It's said that the Cotati that were propping up Foulup have vanished, so the Kree are ready to make their moves.
So they get a Silver Surfer robot to assassinate Clumsy while claiming that he's working for the Skrulls.
And that's basically it.
I'm very happy to see Clumsy Foulup eliminated, but it probably could have been done in two pages, not an entire issue.
The two Kree that take over, Ael-dan (blue) and Dar-benn (pink) don't last too long as leaders, since the Supreme Intelligence will be coming back next year for Operation: Galactic Storm.
Since Clumsy Foulup was Steve Englehart's parody of Tom DeFalco, i looked for any elements of satire but i don't think i see anything. If this issue was published in 1994, when Tom DeFalco was demoted to be one of several co-editor in chiefs, i would definitely have said that the idea of two Kree taking over the empire was a representation of that. Instead, maybe it's just prescient.

Between flashbacks, Drax and Firelord's issue, robot decoys and dream sequences, there are very little appearances of the Surfer in the actual MU during these crossover issues.
The one we get is the Rhino at the zoo issue, which reads like a coloring book plot.
