Continuing from issue #18...Silver Surfer, Nova, Mr. Fantastic, Invisible Woman and Franklin Richards are speaking with a battered Galactus. Galactus orders Nova to find him a suitable planet for consumption. Silver returns the Fantastic family to earth. Meanwhile Reptyl and crew instigate an attack by Firlord and Starfox. After threats are exchanged Reptyl offers the Silver Surfer's location to Firelord who is still looking to take his revenge against the SS. The SS returns to Nova who has found a suitable planet that is inhabitant. The SS doesn't agree with the choice, but due to Galactus immediate hunger they debate. This is interupted by the crazed Firelord, who suckers the SS from behind. Starfox distracts Nova by using his powers and acts only as neutral observers. After both Firelord and SS tussel toe-to-toe, while the SS defends his actions to unjustify Firelord's vengence. Nova breaks free of Starfox's influence to kiss Firelord. This distracts Firelord and the fight ends. This is the lead in for issue #20.
