In an opinion piece on the failure of the Silver Surfer title published in the early 70s, Mike Huddleston (“Why Did the Original Silver Surfer Run Fail? #1-18,” www.comicbookdaily.com, June 12, 2014) points out that it had few secondary characters. Now, that’s an interesting observation. The hero can have adventures, but he or she won’t have anyone to anchor him or her and to breathe life into the story. There will only be one point of view. We feel that “ensemble casts” allow for a wide variety of possible storylines.
