I am astonished at the negative reaction to this issue. We plead for better portrayal in battle and get a really good one. Now the problem sounds like Galactus got disrespected? He has been beaten many times. Thor has received a gigantic power up. While it isn't stated Thor obviously used hie natural power to reshape the power cosmic given by Galactus into something he could control and use to drain Galactus. How stupid would Thor have been to not do that since he knew Galactus could not be trusted?
Some times I understand Marvels' view on fanboyism. It seems nothing will be good enough to please many fans. As to Galactus origin this is a new universe and things may not be the same. The coming of the zombie universe along with the Black Winter comment about this doomed universe is a bit of foreshadowing. I wonder if there are other instances of this in other books. The one thing that I do not want to see is a drunken,sad sack that he was during the Aaron run.
The notion that we have to choose between Cates or Aaron or get nothing just means that Thor as a character is effectively dead. I'm not interested in fanboy service.
