This week we go back to 1983 to learn about the origin of one of the most well known villains in the Marvel Universe, which has yet to make his MCU debut but here’s to hoping he does in the foreseeable future.
Which villain do we speak of? Why, none other than Galactus.
The book that reprints several other books and includes new material is Super-Villain Classics Vol. 1 #1 Galactus: The Origin.
This one caught my attention when browsing by the cover alone. I really do dig a good Galactus cover and this is a book I’ve never read.
I only knew a wee bit of Galactus back story and origin before reading so this one fills in a big more information as a Galactus fan myself.
Awesome bronze book that can still be found cheap for all you Galactus fans. This book reprinted parts of Fantastic Four #49 and from several issues of Thor that included reprints from Thor #160, #162,#167 and #169.
Galactus lived long before our current Universe on a planet called Taa. His alter ego was Galan in those days before he became a destroyer of worlds, feeding his hunger to fuel his power.
Taa was one of the most advanced civilizations in the Universe before what we called the Big Bang that started the Universe we are now in. They knew their world would end and there was no way out.
As most started to die in what they called a cosmic plague of radiation, Galan and others built a ship and dove deep into the ends of the Universe, their final voyage.
As they started to decent into the blazing cosmic cauldron where all matter in the universe was plunging, all aboard started to perish except Galan, who starts to feel a new life force and power within.
This cosmic power started to speak to Galan, claiming to be the Sentience of the Universe. Together they can form a new power, a new form of life more than just a galaxy, thus Galactus is born.
