Galactus is the sole survivor of the universe that existed prior to the current universe. Originally Galactus was a humanoid named Galan, who was born on the planet Taa, a paradise-like world whose civilization is said to have been the most advanced of any of the known universe of that time. However, this universe was in its final stages of collapse. The cosmic entity Uatu the Watcher, having met and established a relationship with superhero team the Fantastic Four, warns leader Mister Fantastic of the coming of the being called Galactus, who must consume the energies of entire worlds to survive. Uatu tries to hide Earth from the Herald of Galactus, the Silver Surfer, by placing a huge asteroid belt around the planet, but the ruse fails. The Surfer arrives on the top of the Fantastic Four's headquarters, the Baxter Building, and alerts Galactus. The Fantastic Four battle the Surfer until the arrival of Galactus, who ignores the pleas of the Watcher and the combined attacks of the Fantastic Four members the Human Torch and the Thing, and begins to assemble a device to facilitate in the consumption of Earth's energies. The Watcher, however, sends the Torch to Galactus' ship to retrieve the Ultimate Nullifier, the one weapon that can destroy Galactus. When confronted by Mister Fantastic - wielding the Nullifier - and a rebellious Silver Surfer, who has been touched by the humanity of Alicia Masters, Galactus retreats. The entity retrieves the Nullifier and banishes the Surfer to Earth, stating he may never leave. In addition to the Surfer, many others have served as Galactus's herald including Terrax, Firelord, Nova (Frankie Raye), and the Air-Walker.
