Quote:This is a bullshit reason to turn Galactus back into the Devourer of worlds.
A being like Galactus could just as easily destroy a planet with everything on it. Or he could let his ships do it.
There was no need for him to consume this planet and give up being the Lifebringer.
But there's no poetry in that story. Galactus's herald who has often railed against Galactus's eating of planets being forced to plea for Galactus to go back to eating a planet has a poetry or irony to it.
Quote:Crappy easy writing.
I think the writer IS crappy (his Deadpool work...awful)...but I don't think he made the wrong decision here. Some writer was eventually going to have Galactus fall off the wagon and eat populated worlds. The idea that Norrin will now have to know he's responsible for Galactus's future actions instead of Galactus being responsible for Norrin's past actions is a decent twist. Silver Surfer had the Galactus he always wanted and changed him back to the version he loathed for what he saw as the greater good. There's some drama there to work with at least.
