A cosplayer dressed up as Galactus.

Galactus, also known as Galan and The Devourer of Worlds, is fictional character, an anti-villain and one of the main antagonists of Marvel Comics, opposing the entire Marvel Universe, He is the archenemy of the Silver Surfer and a recurring foe for the Fantastic Four, Guardians of the Galaxy, Annihilators, X-Men, Thor and the Avengers.

Although he is not exactly malevolent, he is nevertheless a dangerous individual who requires nothing short of entire worlds to hold off his eternal hunger and is also linked in such a way to the Marvel universe, that if he dies, the entire Marvel universe will end. This makes Galactus somewhat unique in the fact he is both an immensely destructive force yet also necessary for the existence of the universe.

As of the Reckoning War, Galactus officially died and has since been resurrected in the body of the Destroyer as the Destruction.

The character has been featured in other Marvel media, such as arcade games, video games, animated television series, and the 2007 movie Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer.
