That is a rather cruel request. Issue #5, along with other atrocities such as Chaos War, lurks in a cold, dark recess in the depths of my conscious mind. In time, it will sink into my unconscious, and I shall happily live in blissful ignorance of its existence. I'm not sure it would be healthy to revisit such material.


Instead of continuing to point out what is wrong with Mighty Thor, I've spent some time trying to find something - anything - good. I might have succeeded. Here is Volstaag on Galactus:

"That thing is the plague of worlds, little friend of Jesus. A kind of parasite that feeds on planets. Unstoppable, unknowable. Insatiable.... Maybe once he was like a man, but now.. now he... it.. is more a force of nature than anything. A God of oblivion."

This is a great (albeit one-sided) description of Galactus, and an excellent palliative to the erroneous anthropomorphic assumptions and interpretations of Galactus' actions.

I hope this description is sent to every future writer of the character. "Unknowable, unstoppable, insatiable...a force of nature...."

Of course, a coherent narrative demands that character description be in concord with character action. Otherwise you end up looking like an amateur who makes things up as you go along. Let's see next issue.
