I always find Galactus' relationship with his heralds interesting. He responds differently with each of them
He treats Silver Surfer like an old friend, who chose a path he didn't agree with. Often showing respect for him
Firelord - I actually don't remember much of Firelord AS Galacus herald, I would have to go back and check. Afterwards, it was as a betrayer.
Terrax - He was colder then in other times, and viewed him afterwards as an upstart.
Nova - There were times where he was almost like husband and wife with her. Not quite, but somewhat close.
Morgue - I don't think that even he liked Morgue. Iremember an annoyance, even contempt.
I have a theory. The Power Cosmis is supposed to be this primal force in the universe right? Well, it also lifts beings up from their natural status as a species. Makes them more.
I think the combination of those two things kind of tap into the man who WAS Galan.
Because I was never trying to imply he NEVER served his own purpose, just that devouring planets was not a part of it.
I had actually forgotten about that... which makes me angry, because I love that run.
You are right. To save one of his heralds.
TYhereare actually parts from Stan Lee stories that reflect his connection wioth his heralds.
In Epic Illustrated #1,Galactus talks to the Surfer about the universe, and seems to want to guide him in learning.
In the Silver Surfer Grapic Novel, from the 70s, Galactus seems hurt that the Surfer rejected him.
Of course, the last one is out of continuity.
I would say that even the Surfer wanting to tell Galactus that he is free, is a sign of respect for his former mater.
That is one of teh things that bugged me about Slott's run. One of many. He stripped away the complex and interesting relationship between the two.
Because Galactus, when a writer takes the time, is complex. A being that powerful should be.
Sorry, I got off on a whole thing.
You are right, I should have specified more.
