|Game||Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer (mentioned)|
Galactus was a mysterious alien being that wandered through space and consumed the energy of life-bearing planets in order to survive. He is the hidden main villain in Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer.
Galactus was a cosmical entity, born within the universe itself. He preserves the balance of life-eating planets, just as a lion does it eating zebras.
He sends his herald, the Silver Surfer, who entered his service in exchange for preventing him from destroying his planet, along the galaxies to search for more suitable planets. When the Surfer finds Earth, Galactus is called by his servant and he travels the whole universe to reach him. When he arrives following Dr. Doom's defeat in Shanghai, anyway, Silver Surfer has learned the value of life and confronts him. The Surfer faces his master in space and releases the Cosmic Power Galactus gave him all at once, thus destroying him.
