The Silver Skyriders have joined together - their mission: defeat the Uni-Lord.
The Uni-Lord meets with his Dark Counsel. He is angry that the Dark Counsel knew these things would happen but did not tell him. Not willing to give the Counsel another soul, he departs. But the Dark Counsel knows the truth, Norrin Radd is the conduit for the Skyriders- and this is something he cannot allow.
He takes the soul he obtained from the Uni-Lord of the Silver Surfer's board and fuses it with his own personal Blackbody. The Black Surfer is born and is sent to take care of the Skyriders.
It attacks them with relentless fury. They are aware of their mission, but not fully aware of their powers. The Black Surfer begins picking them apart. Pradda Fol takes command and begins to formulate a plan to hold the Surfer at bay.
In his anger, the Uni-Lord sends his Assimilators to the Gorgiin system for their part in creating the Skyriders. He refuses to hear their petitions and the Blackbodies are unleashed, killing all on the world.
Being the last of his kind, Pradda Fol is taken out of the battle and into the Congregation. The Skyriders are left withour a leader and the Black Surfer is angrier than ever.
