Beta Ray Bill, Beta Ray Bill fights Galactus, first issue, Galactus, Godhunter, herald of galactus
Part of the deal when Walt Simonson set up Beta Ray Bill to get his god-power was Bill’s moral worthiness to carry the hammer of Thor. In Godhunter, Bill sets out on a quest for vengeance against our world-devouring friend Galactus. Bill’s more than a little pissed-off that Galactus ate his planet — and his entire species! Wouldn’t you be? Godhunter asks the question, “Is a horse-faced alien truly worthy to carry the hammer of Thor when all he seeks is brutal revenge?”
Good question! Before we answer it, we get inter-galactic fireworks and Bill speaking our four favorite words: “This Is Going Cosmic.” Yes! In this scene from the first issue of Godhunter, Beta Ray Bill beats the snot out of a herald of Galactus. And to top it off, he tells the Big G to go starve himself! You tell him, Bill! While not entirely thrilled with the resolution of this three-part epic, we really enjoyed following Bill on his quest to single-handledly kick the almighty ass of Galactus.
