The heir of Frankenstein seeks to succeed where his ancestors have failed. Instead of bringing the dead back to life, he seeks to create new life. In order to do so, he needs a massive power source to transfer into clay. He finds this source in the Silver Surfer! Deceiving the Surfer, he gives his energy, causing an evil duplicate to be created. As the Surfer battles his duplicate, Frankenstein meets his end at the hands of his assistant Borgo. As the battle between the two Surfers rages on, it is the compassion of the true Surfer that allows him to triumph.
