After the post- Secret Wars recreation of the Marvel Universe, a new team of Ultimates began to take on cosmic-level threats to the Earth.
Their first task was handling the problem of Galactus. The Devourer of Worlds has never been a clear-cut villain. He sometimes functions as protagonist and antagonist in equal measure, but his motives are usually beyond spite, ego, or general evil.
This made him a wild card, a threat to the Earth that could arise at any given moment based on his mood. But Galactus is still a required part of the cosmic order.
To that end, the Ultimates came up with a clever workaround for the Galactus problem. Trapping him in his incubator, they altered Galactus' nature, transforming him into the Lifebringer, the polar opposite of his original self.
Galactus proved his new benevolent nature by restoring the very first planet he devoured. With the threat of a world eater gone, the Ultimates moved on and Galactus began a new, more heroic life.
But not everyone was happy with his new state of being. Galactus' time as the Lifebringer brought him into direct conflict with Master Order and Lord Chaos, two other cosmic entities.
They did not approve of Galactus' new status quo and wished for him to revert back his original self. They brought Galactus before the Living Tribunal to be judged as an affront to the cosmic order.
Galactus managed to sway the Tribunal by stating that the cosmic order of the new multiverse was still being formed, and thus, his new role could be beneficial instead of dangerous.
Master Order and Lord Chaos used this revelation as an excuse to try to form their own order, merging to form a more powerful entity called Logos.
They forcibly reverted Galactus back to his Devourer state, but the Anti-Man sacrificed his life to restore the Lifebringer. Galactus finally returned to his Devourer of Worlds state when he consumed a world to stop the Ultron Virus from spreading to other worlds.
Galactus has since returned to Earth after being summoned by Doctor Doom. He was sent away thanks to the Fantastic Four and later ended up tangled in the schemes of Dormammu, absorbing several mystical entities and destabilizing reality, before being stopped by Doctor Strange.
Most recently he was used as a bomb by Thor to destroy the Black Winter, which ultimately cost the Devourer his life, at least for the time being.
Amer Sawan is a reader, writer, and gamer and lover of all things nerdy based in Windermere, Florida. 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've always felt him. I certainly couldn't treat him in the same way I could any ordinary mortal.
And I remember in my first story, I had to back away from him to resolve that story. The Silver Surfer is, of course, the fallen angel.
When Galactus relegated him to Earth, he stayed on Earth, and that was the beginning of his adventures. They were figures that had 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.
In the nascent Marvel Universe, characters acted consistently, whatever comic they were appearing in. Their actions reverberated through every title.

In the issue, Death assures Galactus of his role and purpose as one of shepherd and weeder in guiding the universe to its proper purpose, and Galactus remains resolute.
Byrne further elaborated on this concept in Fantastic Four Jan. At the end of the story, Eternity , an abstract entity in the Marvel Universe, appears to validate the existence of Galactus as necessary for the natural order and essential to prevent an even more catastrophic fate; Howard University professor of literature Marc Singer criticized this, accusing writer-artist of using the character to "justify planetary-scale genocide.
Writer-penciller John Byrne and inker Terry Austin produced "The Last Galactus Story" as a serial in the anthology comic-magazine Epic Illustrated 26—34 October — February Nine of a scheduled 10 installments appeared.
Each was six pages with the exception of the eighth installment 12 pages. The magazine was canceled with issue 34, leaving the last chapter unpublished and the story unfinished; however, Byrne later published the conclusion on his website.

Writer Joshua Hale Fialkov commented that his intent was to use Galactus as a means to place the characters from the Ultimate Marvel imprint into a completely unexpected crisis: "What I hope comes across is the sense of wonder that's being brought into the Ultimate Universe Following his appearance in "Hunger", Galactus was a major supporting character in Ultimates vol.
During the events of the story, Galactus is transformed into "The Lifebringer," a being who is compelled to infuse dead planets with life-sustaining energies, thus altering the character's primary motive for the first time since Galactus's debut in Elaborating on what inspired the change, Ewing explained "What inspired it—a mixture of wanting someone big on or allied with the team—originally, we thought about Odin, but he's a bit busy—and my usual preoccupations with atonement, redemption, growth and change.
So what can [Galactus] do now? Well, whereas before he was taking in vast amounts of energy, now he's putting out vast amounts of energy—pure life energy.
He always said he was going to give back more than he took out of the universe—now he's making good on that, one dead world at a time.
Galactus featured prominently in a direct sequel series to Ultimates , titled Ultimates 2 1—10 Aug.

The story features Galactus recounting all the major events that have occurred in Marvel continuity to Franklin Richards as the universe experiences its final moments.
Confirming the series as occurring within the primary Marvel continuity, Waid elaborated that "[t]here is a framing device, yes.
We wanted it to be a story, not just a long Wikipedia entry. As established in Jonathan Hickman's Fantastic Four run, there comes a point when Galactus and Franklin Richards stand together at the end of time, and now we get to see exactly what they were doing there.
Galactus was originally the explorer Galan of the planet Taa, which existed in the prime pre-Big Bang universe. When an unknown cosmic cataclysm gradually begins killing off all of the other life in his universe, Galan and other survivors leave Taa on a spacecraft and are engulfed in the Big Crunch.
Galan, however, does not die: after bonding with the Sentience of the Universe , he changes and gestates for billions of years in an egg made of the debris of his ship that the current universe formed after the Big Bang.
He emerges as Galactus, and though a Watcher observed Galactus's birth and recognizes his destructive nature, the Watcher chooses not to kill Galactus.
Galactus becomes involved in a civil war among the "Proemial Gods", who had come into being during the universe's infancy.
When a faction of the gods led by Diableri of Chaos attempts to remake the universe in their own image, Galactus kills Diableri and imprisons three others Antiphon , Tenebrous, and Aegis in the prison called the Kyln.

The quartet succeed, and the newly empowered and renamed Terrax the Tamer leads his master to Earth. Galactus locates and defeats the Sphinx in Egypt , but is confronted by Mr.
Fantastic, who, unbeknownst to Galactus, wields a fake Ultimate Nullifier. Unable to read Richard's mind which is protected by the Watcher , Galactus retreats.
Galactus empowers and uses the superheroine Dazzler to locate a missing Terrax, who is in fact hiding from his master inside a black hole.
Near death, Galactus is saved by the Fantastic Four and the Avengers while also acquiring another herald: Nova. Fantastic is captured by the Shi'ar for saving Galactus's life, and is tried by aliens who survived the annihilation of their worlds by Galactus.
During the trial, the cosmic entity Eternity —the sentient embodiment of space and reality of the Marvel Universe—intervenes, allowing all beings present to momentarily become one with the universe, allowing them to understand that Galactus is a necessary part of the cosmic order.

After an encounter with the High Evolutionary,  Galactus invades Asgard , home of the Norse Gods, seeking an Asgardian artifact to sate his hunger and spare future civilizations.

Galactus recruits a human preacher from Earth that he names Praeter to be his new herald. Revived by Franklin Richards , he and Franklin succeed in vanquishing the remaining Celestials, and prevent the destruction of Earth.

Galactus locates the hero Anti-Man outside the multiverse and, after transforming him into a Herald of Life, sends him to recruit the recently disbanded Ultimates to help discover the identity of Eternity's captor, who is later revealed to be the First Firmament, the first iteration of the cosmos.
Master Order and Lord Chaos bring Galactus to trial before the Living Tribunal , still seeking to restore Galactus to his former state for the sake of the cosmic balance.

After a brief battle, Master Order decides to create a new cosmic order, which it and Lord Chaos control.
Their former servant, the In-Betweener, is forcibly merged with them into a new cosmic being called Logos.
After destroying several Celestials, Logos forcibly transforms Galactus back into the Devourer of Worlds. The process is reversed when Anti-Man sacrifices his life to restore Galactus as the Lifebringer.

Galactus reveals to All-Father Thor that he had a vision of Thor being responsible for his death. In a bid to destroy the Black Winter, Galactus turns Thor into his Herald of Thunder.
This causes an angered Thor to drain Galactus of his energies enough to make him a decimated husk. When the Black Winter moves in to claim Galactus' body, Thor used it as a bomb to decimate the Black Winter.
The first and oldest living entity in the universe,  Galactus was created during the union of the Sentience of the previous Universe and Galan of Taa,    and is described as "the physical, metamorphosed embodiment of a cosmos.
Consumption of planets maintains Galactus' ability to use his powers. To facilitate consumption, he can employ the Elemental Converter, which efficiently converts matter into energy.
Alternatively, Galactus can absorb energy directly from cosmic beings   and even mystical entities—though with unpredictable results. To aid in his search for suitable planets, Galactus frequently appoints an individual as his herald , granting each in turn a small fraction of the Power Cosmic.
This Power replaces the auras or souls of the recipient, with each wielder's physical form adapting to store the energy and in turn allow manipulation for feats such as energy projection.
Galactus also employs incredibly advanced science capable of producing objects such as the Punisher robots,  the Ultimate Nullifier a weapon capable of destroying and remaking the multiverse  and his space station Taa II.
