Idiot Cards

High O'er the roof of the world he soars... free and unfettered as the roaring wind itself! Behold the sky-born spanner of a trillion galaxies... the restless, streaking stranger from the farthest reach of space... this glistening, gleaming seeker of truth, whom man shall call forevermore... THE SILVER SURFER!

See, this is the kind of text that made Marvel so cool. It sounds like Stan the Man to me. What we have here is what was referred to as 'The Idiot Card', something that Marvel used to give to fledgeling artists, so that they knew the finer details of the characters they were drawing.
