Here's an idea

Why doesn't Galactus just get the Infinity Gauntlet and the Cosmic Cube?

If I was Galactus, that's what I would do.


  1. There's no way the Living Tribunal would allow that, I'm afraid. Galactus' cosmic hunger is vital to the balance of the universe. His need to destroy planets makes him the face of Equity. Basically he serves too important a role as a bringer of death just as Reed Richards serves an important role as a defender of life. Actually Galactus tries to explain this to Mr. Fantastic in Secret Wars but then attempts to usurp the power of the Beyonder anyway after instructing Mr. Fantastic to oppose him in his attempt to gain omnipotence. Or at least, that is my interpretation of Jim Shooter's ambiguity.

  2. Man, you know your trivia. Even as a massive comic geek I didn't know all that.
