    Step 3: My vision of the character.
    What I would like to get is not easy for the writers and designer, I am aware of.
    * I would cease that to always give a human form to Galactus, I will try to infuse this totally "other" aspect of this entity. This was done once timidly in StormBreaker Saga 2005 where Beta Bill Ray sees an indistinct form slowly transform into the Galactus that we know. Wouaou is new I had thought at the time.

Actually, Galactus doesn't have human form. This notion didn't arise with Stormbreaker, but with John Byrne's The Trial of Galactus story arc wherein every alien race saw Galactus in a form of that race.

    * Galactus should be the incarnation of a VIS Canis majoris level star. ( A level out of proportion with all things known. We saw a glimpse in the arc of the annihilation wave where the Galactus’ rage explodes sweeping planets. That simple :GALACTUS IS NOT A GIANT HUMAN OF FLESH AND BLOOD WHICH CAN BE DEVOURED BY ZOMBIES !!

I agree that Galactus should not be able to be devoured by zombies, but I disagree that Galactus should be at a level that makes him unassailable. That would defeat his story purpose as all planets would fall to him.

    * His hunger must not be like mortals the need to regain energies but simply the expression of his curse and his role. Devouring a planet should not the condition of his power but just be an obligation to be in accord with its nature. No more depletion of his power !!

Again, I disagree. Galactus should have a weakness to allow him to be defeated and his hunger is his weakness. Otherwise, you either have Galactus in a role as an unbeatable villain who regularly commits genocide or as a hero who overcomes any threat instantly. How interesting would that be?
