** Subverted when he is confronted by Master Order and Lord Chaos after his reversion at the hands of the Ultimates. Back during the events of ''Infinity Gauntlet'', Thanos rated either of them individually well above Galactus, but now that he has fused with his Ultimate counterpart and been reversed (which removes his hunger, not to mentoin directly conflicts with order and chaos' fundamental existence), he not only defies them, but subjects ''them'' to this trope.



* SuperWeight: Level 6.

* SuperWeight: Level 6.6, although were exactly depends on how well-sustained he is.



* TookALevelInBadass: It might seem impossible seeing how godlike he already was to begin with, but due to the fact that he had suffered quite a bit from TheWorfEffect in recent years, the writers' attempts at CharacterRerailment have resulted in this:
** First, he gets dropped off in the Ultimate universe and fuses with his Earth-1610 version.
** Then,after the events of ''Secret Wars'', the Ultimates "reversed" him ridding him of his [[WorfHadTheFlu hunger]] and turning him into a life-giver. This has upped his position in the cosmic foodchain a bit to boot.



* UniquenessDecay: Jack Kirby never intended for Galactus to be used past the first story he appeared in. He objected to all the character background later given for Galactus as well as the characterization for ComicBook/SilverSurfer in later stories. He wanted Galactus and his herald to remain a mystery and felt that overexposure and excessive character development would undermine the character's effect. Given that there are so many "gods" and other cosmic entities in the Marvel Universe, he was right.

Only in recent years have writers attempted to restore Galactus position in the grand scheme of things, and even then Galactus will always be more of a character than a true mysterious force of nature as he was intended to be.
