    I mean he has been that until this I guess, but the abstracts do not show up that much honestly. And it is not great when they do.

    It is honestly not just a Galactus issue, he is the poster boy for it with this being one of the worst. But many of the cosmic characters have had rough showings in recent years.

    Galactus fighting Celestials is fine, but suddenly Asgard has a Celestial killing axe...I guess they did not need the Destroyer after all and that failed despite having all of Asgard and Odin in after enchantment by multiple skyfathers.

    I get not all cannon lasts forever, but they stopped caring about any character not carrying their own titles for the most part outside of a few exceptions.

    I thought Dr. Strange did a good job with Galactus but even then I was surprised it was that one sided between Dormammu and Galactus.

A sated or hyper-sated Galactus should be one-shotting Skyfather class characters, IMHO.
Galactus should be operating at the high end of Skyfather class at "normal" levels, meaning in-between meals which has historically been shown.
A starving/near-death Galactus (think Byrne's FF/Avengers story) falling into low end Skyfather status.
That allows Galactus to be beyond the reach solo top tiers in situations where he may be the antagonist (looking for a meal) but not completely untouchable.
There's also the fact that Galactus is a "metamorphosed embodiment of a cosmos", a universally relevant character who blurs the line between physical and abstract and in his sated state I think that status should be reflected, as it was in the more recent Dr. Strange run.

Galactus should never have Thor school him in the PC, nor challenge him in his "most powerful state"
