These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
There are Silver Surfer fans who dislike the Stan Lee "speech-giving Messiah" take of the character. These fans instead go for Steve Englehart (who brought political intrigue and romance into the character's life, as well as got him freed from Earth), Jim Starlin (Space Opera storylines with Thanos as Surfer's rival), Ron Marz (action-based stories with Marz fleshing out Surfer's rogue gallery of enemies as well as bringing back all of the former heralds of Galactus to interact with each other), or George Perez (who did a massive arc where Surfer had to travel through an unexplored galaxy after being teleported into the region).
The circumstances of the Surfer's creation (Jack Kirby created him without Stan's input, making Kirby the sole creator of the Surfer by Stan's logic) means that Stan Lee, the writer of the fantastic 18 issue original series that gave the Surfer huge amounts of depth and poignancy, could be seen as the real Daddy for the character despite the fact that he was the first writer to work on the character.
Art-wise, Moebius is sometimes nominated as the greatest artistic talent behind the Surfer.
Awesome Music: The 1990s opening sequence is awesome enough to contain its own Ominous Latin Chanting. Hear it for yourself here, if you can tune out all the swooshing-in-space sounds that are layered on top of it.
Awesome Music: The soundtrack for this game is surprisingly popular on the internet, particularly Reptyl's stage. The quality of the music is simply amazing by primitive NES standards.
Badass Decay: One of the most powerful characters in the Marvel universe is now a One-Hit-Point Wonder with a hitbox the size of a van who dies from touching literally anything that's not a power-up. That fact that the one thing the player will likely see the most is the Silver Surfer prostrating himself in shame◊ every time he dies pretty much says it all.
