Another failed attempt to escape the Earth leaves the Silver Surfer unconscious, when he is found by a coven of witches and warlocks. Weeking to destroy the Surfer as a show of strength, they summon a beast from beyond, who just happens to be the Abomination! When the Abomination proves to be beyond their control, the Surfer must expend a great deal of energy to save one of the coven. Weakened, the Surfer battles the Abomination, before he is able to have the power cosmic return to him. When the Abomination is defeated, the Surfer returns him to the coven, either to deal with or return him to from whence he came!
