Ardina was created magically by stabbing Silver Surfer with a ritually prepared dagger in order to create a female counterpart for him. This was done as part of a plan to restore Surfer, Namor, Dr. Strange, and the Hulk to sanity.
Ardina was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby and first appeared in The Silver Surfer (1978). This story took place in the Earth-M universe.
Ardina of the mainstream Marvel continuity (Earth-616) first appeared in The Order #4 (2002) by Kurt Busiek and Dan Jurgens.
Powers & Abilities
Ardina has access to the same energies as the Silver Surfer. She can use the Power Cosmic to form energy blasts and fly. Considering she was newborn at the time it remains uncertain how many powers she has inherited and to what level she can apply them. Presumably they will grow with experience.
After being betrayed by the Silver Surfer, Galactus created Ardina from his technological matrix with the DNA of his beloved Shalla Bal. He sent her to convince the Surfer to return to his side. The Surfer refused despite his love for Ardina and eventually she fell for him and turned on Galactus as well. She would be reabsorbed back into Galactus' matrix and erased from existence.
