In my Opinion Nihilus was a poorly done rip off of Galactus.

They both had the great hunger that made them need to eat planets by draining the force or life off of them

Nihilus survived a planet being destroyed to become what he was, Galactus a universe.

Both had heralds that looked for food for their masters

Both are nearly impossible to kill.

What do you all think was Nihilus a rip off of Galactus?

Both are clearly a giant rip off of pacman.

Insatiable hunger leading to their own demise? Yawn.

Galactus wasn't even close to being the first type of character in stories that had his type of skills(Insatiable Hunger and eats planets and races).


It goes back to friggin Greek Mythology....
Hapan: "This creature has information that could lead us to a woman who has been kidnapped. We will get that information."
Luke: "This woman is a citizen of the New Republic, and if you do not take your hands off her, I will take your hands off you."
