I already brought up that typo in the forum. I like Thanos6's version much better.

Not a typo. Thanos6 wins the "Can Identify Internet Slang" award.

Ugh! Glad I never bought this issue.
Silver Surfer is one of those series that suffered every time the latest installment of Starlin's Infinity trilogy rolled around. The Surfer was a semi-central character in all three miniseries, but was nevertheless still less-important than Adam Warlock and Thanos. That meant each time he was relegated to doing stuff that at first glance *appeared* important, but in the end was actually relatively inconsequential to the final resolution of each story. One result of this was that many of the Infinity Gauntlet / War / Crusade crossovers that appeared in his series were these odd tangents and side-trips that ended up having no significance.
It's so weird that the rebirth of Thanos, which is what started all of these massive crossovers going in the first place, occurred in the Surfer's book, but he very quickly was reduced to a supporting player who was given these throw-away tie-in stories to occupy his time.
