The Power And The Prize!
1st appearance "Mephisto"
Checking on the girl whose life he saved, the Surfer is chased out of the hospital. Furious over once more being treated with hostility by the human race, the Surfer lashes out and uses his powers to grind the human race to a standstill causing everything electronic to fail. This gains the attention of Mephisto, lord of the nether world who wishes to claim the Silver Surfer's soul. In order to do so, Mephisto kidnaps Shalla-Bal and uses her to make the Surfer do his bidding and give up his soul.
Whisking Shalla-Bal to his realm, Mephisto is shocked when the Surfer is able to follow him to his realm. Mephisto tries to tempt the Surfer with riches and women in an attempt to corrupt his soul, however the Surfer is able to resist temptation. In a final attempt to try and corrupt the Surfer, Mephisto absorbs the Surfer into his mind. However, the opposite happens and Mephisto finds that the Surfer's purity is influencing his mind. Releasing the Surfer, Mephisto admits defeat, but not before sending Shalla-Bal back to Zenn-La and the Surfer back to Earth, where he is still trapped by the barrier erected by Galactus.
