Stamina: Extremely high

Range: Universal (Wiped out the influence of the Zenn-Lavian civilization across the Universe)

Standard Equipment: His board

Intelligence: Extraordinary Genius. Norrin Radd was an exceptional scientist, tutored in this area by Jartran Radd and in the nature of the universe by Galactus. He was self-taught in various areas, especially history, and absorbed much Zenn-Lavian knowledge from "Hypno-powered study cubes". He is able to understand information that would take a millennium to convey in a millisecond, asses a situation in a microsecond, and correctly calculate where a wormhole leads.

Weaknesses: The Silver Surfer rarely fights to truly kill, and often does not use his abilities to their fullest extent. Although his body does not require sleep, his mind still does in order to give it an opportunity to dream. The Surfer is extremely reliant on his cosmic power and is more of a fighter in his surfboard than without it.
