Lee and Kirby had desired to introduce a character that broke away from the archetype of the standard villain, culminating in the creation of Galactus. In the character's first appearance Galactus was depicted as a god-like figure who feeds by draining living planets of their energy, and operates without regard to the morality and judgments of mortal beings.
Galactus' initial origin was that of a space explorer named Galan who gained cosmic abilities by passing near a star, but writer further developed the origin of the character, revealing that Galan lived during the previous universe that existed prior to the which began the current universe. As Galan's universe came to an end, Galan merged with the ' to become Galactus, an entity that wielded such cosmic power as to require devouring entire planets to sustain his existence. Additional material written by,, and explored Galactus' role and purpose in the Marvel Universe, and examined the actions of the character through themes of genocide, manifest destiny, ethics, and natural/necessary existence.
Frequently accompanied by a herald (such as the ), the character has appeared as both antagonist and protagonist in central and supporting roles. Since debuting in the, Galactus has played a role in over five decades of Marvel continuity. The character has been featured in other Marvel media, such as,, animated television series, and the 2007 film. In 2009, Galactus ranked 5th on 's list of 'Top 100 Comic Book Villains', citing the character's 'larger than life presence' as making him one of the more important villains ever created. IGN also noted 'Galactus is one of the few villains on our list to really defy the definition of an evil-doer' as the character is compelled to destroy worlds because of his hunger.
Main article: In 1966, nearly five years after launching ' flagship title, Fantastic Four, creators and collaborated on an antagonist designed to break the mold of the tyrant with god-like stature and power. As Lee recalled in 1993, Galactus was simply another in a long line of super-villains whom we loved creating. Having dreamed up [many] powerful baddies. We felt the only way to top ourselves was to come up with an evil-doer who had almost godlike powers. Therefore, the natural choice was some sort of demi-god, but now what would we do with him. We didn't want to use the tired old cliche about him wanting to conquer the world.
That was when inspiration struck. Why not have him not be a really evil person? After all, a demi-god would be beyond mere good and evil. [What] he'd require is the life force and energy from living planets! Kirby described his Biblical inspirations for Galactus and an accompanying character, an angelic herald Lee called the: My inspirations were the fact that I had to make sales.
And I had to come up with characters that were no longer stereotypes.I had to get something new. For some reason, I went to the Bible. And I came up with Galactus. And there I was in front of this tremendous figure, who I knew very well, because I always felt him, and I certainly couldn't treat him the same way that I would any ordinary mortal.
And of course the Silver Surfer is the fallen angel.[T]hey were figures that have never been used before in comics. They were above mythic figures, and of course, they were the first gods. Kirby elaborated, 'Galactus in actuality is a sort of god. He is beyond reproach, beyond anyone's opinion.
In a way he is kind of a Zeus, who fathered Hercules. He is his own legend, and of course, he and the Silver Surfer are sort of modern legends, and they are designed that way.' Writer expanded on Lee and Kirby's explanation: 'In five short years from the launch of the Fantastic Four, the Lee/Kirby duo.had introduced a whole host of alien races or their representatives.there were the, the and the, all of whom Lee and Kirby used in the foundations of the universe they were constructing, one where all things were possible but only if they did not flout the 'natural laws' of this cosmology. In the nascent Marvel Universe, characters acted consistently, whatever comic they were appearing in. Their actions reverberated through every title. It was pure soap opera but on a cosmic scale, and Galactus epitomized its epic sweep.'
