    Did I ever deny your second statement?

No, but you talked over it, without acknowledging that a force that is feared/hated could be considered a god. Otherwise you wouldn't try to use Galactus' negative reception as a disqualifier. It ain't.

The fact is that what makes a god, especially in the Marvel Universe, is highly ambiguous and debatable. Gladiator has been called a god. Surtur has been called a god. Thanos has been called a god. Does it require worship? How much worship, and for how long? Don't you think many of the civilizations Galactus has destroyed saw him as a god, even if only for the moments prior to their death? Undeniably yes, they did. The mammalian brain is just designed that way.

In truth, Galactus can be called a god by virtue of power alone. Amora, Lorelei, and Karnilla are called goddesses, but they were never really worshiped anywhere.
