Synopsis
Galactus shows up on Galador and prepares to eat the planet. As the Spaceknights battle Terrax, Rom and Terminator confront Galactus directly. Terminator distracts Galactus long enough for Rom to sneak onto the world eater's ship. Galactus kills Terminator and confronts Rom. To save his planet, Rom offers to lead Galactus to a whole lifeless universe to feast on--the Dark Nebula of the Dire Wraiths. Meanwhile, back on Earth, Dire Wraiths capture the inhabitants of Clairton and impersonate them.
