History Behind Issue: Continued from issue #35, The Rebirth of Thanos continues.

Plot: The Silver Surfer heads to Earth to warn the Avengers of Thanos. Captain America gives him a brief history of the Titan. The Silver Surfer then flies off to space where he runs into the Impossible Man. The Impossible Man reveals that he is trying to prepare him for Thanos as he puts him through all types of prank-like situations. To defeat Thanos, the Impossible Man claims he will not be able to be too serious because Thanos has him beat hands down in that category. Finally, the Silver Surfer agrees to lighten up and at the end, even makes a joke much to his surprise. Continued in issue #37.

Comments: The Impossible Man's part has no basis and almost the entire issue was on prank scenes.  The art is average, nothing spectacular, but not bad either.
