If I may be so audacious, Mr. Byrne, I believe that Stan would approve of the Surfer's appearance here.
"A slender powerful figure cuts through the water"...
I'll cheat here (speculating!) and assume that it's Namor. Because A) the figure looks SO Namor (save for heel wings, and I assume the wings just fold back when he's not flying) and B) I can think of no other Marvel character who can be described that way*. Stingray isn't exactly slender in profile, and when I think of Triton, I just don't think of slender, and C) NO ONE ELSE ever describes Namor with that particular phrasing. Art with words, Mr. Byrne.
The D'bari ship is gorgeous. And the agony on the pilot's face is almost palpable, notwithstanding the alien features. My heart breaks on its behalf. And now the Shi'ar Empire can be added to the list of those planetary systems destroyed by the Phoenix.
Boy, does she have it in for races with apostrophes.
* Oh, possibly Lyra or Dorma. But this silhouette looks like neither of them, and neither of them seemed powerful.
