    There is also the question of if it is really genocide. Genocide implies it is done with malice. Galactus only devours to survive. He is no more committing genocide then we would be if we ate all the cows on Earth.

If we ate all the cows on Earth, that would be morally reprehensible.

    I squashed a spider a few minutes ago, does that make me a murderer?

Spiders are not people. Galactus kills people.

    Is pneumonia a serial killer??

Pneumonia is not sentient. Galactus is. Galactus is aware of the ethical implications of his actions and has been haunted by it. When Dr. Strange used the images of Ikonn to show Galactus the ghosts of all he had killed, Galactus had to shut down his own mind.

    it is a concept that doesn't apply.

It does for the reasons I've given above.

    The Surfer has usually seemed to understand that, never condemning Galactus, but rather heralds who could lead him to other planets, but don't.

Why should that matter if Galactus should not be condemned?

    Any acceptance The Surfer had was based on the fact that Galactus simply is. He does what is his nature, and does it with out malice.

Sometimes Galactus does things without malice, sometimes he does things with malice. Galactus has clearly been depicted as an emotional being.
