You probably best know Galactus as either the Devourer of Worlds or perhaps even Squirrel Girl's BFF. Though, for the past few years, the greatest threat to the Marvel Cosmos has actually been one of its greatest protectors. But Marvel's upcoming Infinity event has just forced the interstellar entity down another path.

Thanos' quest for the Infinity Stones comes to a head in Avengers: Infinity War, but the movie also finally gives us the reason why the Mad Titan has spent six years' worth of post-credits teasers gathering such vast cosmic power. And, perhaps surprisingly, those motivations have deep roots in the comics.
Though most of the '90s weren't a great time for Marvel's comics, they were a golden age for serialised cartoons starring the company's characters like Spider-Man and the X-Men. But it's not often that people bring up the short-lived, delightfully-Canadian Silver Surfer series that ran for one season on Fox in the spring of 1998.
The Silver Surfer is one of those superheroes who's always looked cooler than he actually was. The character's visuals point to an ideal of unfettered freedom and navigating the cosmos with a slick, frictionless ease. However the actual stories featuring the former herald of Galactus have had him weighed down by guilt and responsibility. He was never a "hang ten, dude" kind of character. But the latest series featuring Norrin Radd makes him a lot more fun.
