Of all the creatures in the vastness of the Universe, there is none like me. I was present at the birth of the Universe, and I shall be there at its end. Though I ravage worlds to live, I bear no malice toward any living thing. I simply do what I must to survive. And why must Galactus survive? For, no matter how many worlds I devour ... How many civilizations I destroy ... It is my destiny to one day give back to the Universe – Infinitely more than I have ever taken from it. So speaks Galactus.
~ Galactus

He did as I wished. For I required New Heralds -- Heralds of Life Itself. Heroes to fight the infinite crime and unchain the Cosmos. As a new reality dawns -- Will you save it? Will you guard the flickering flame of being against the Ultimate Darkness? Do you stand... With Galactus?
~ The Lifebringer


Galactus was originally an explorer named Galan from a planet called "Taa" in a universe that existed before the big bang. When the impending cataclysm gradually killed all life in his universe, including almost all of his own people, he and other survivors sought to escape the decay of their world. They left Taa via a space vessel, but it was eventually engulfed in the cataclysm that ended the old universe and spawned a new one. Galan, however, did not die, but was transformed by the Sentience of the Universe, and gestated for billions of years, emerging (partially due to the inactivity of a Watcher) into the new universe as Galactus.
