"Leftover."


How much is leftover when Galactus eats a planet? In the alternate timeline the Thing created in Marvel Two-In-One #50 and revisited in #100, Galactus had wrecked up the place, but hadn't completely destroyed that earth. And in Secret Wars #9, the heroes stop Galactus from eating the Battleworld, which just drives him to eat his own worldship, in an attempt to build up enough power to take the Beyonder. Reed Richards points out Galactus is still going to eat them, and probably the sun as well...

Galactus has had several heralds, but every once in a while you get an oddball like Stardust. And the timeline for their service is really vague. How long was the Silver Surfer his herald? Years? Centuries? Guys like Air-Walker and Firelord couldn't have been for more than a few years. Probably the same for Terrax and Nova. I know his status changed recently, but I'm not sure Galactus has a herald right now.

Our aliens today are the Bat-Creatures from Batman v. Superman, who got figures even though they're barely in that movie and don't really have any reason to be there anyway. But I thought, if a world was about to be eaten by Galactus, and you could pick up some survivors, in some cases you may not be doing them any favors. Yay, you survived to be a homeless space refugee? Not everyone can find a planet where they have super-powers under a yellow sun, y'know.
