    A girl Galactus? Let's see what this is all about....

    Galacta is apparently the daughter of Galactus.

    What a terrible idea/character. I'm just going to assume that this character was created in the 2010s?

    Marvel, Grandmaster was sitting right there. Champion was sitting right there. Yet you reached into the 2010s Marvel's worst decade and dug out Galacta.

    And for those of us who like fun, it's nice to see Galacta again. She's a delight.

    This is not really my type of game. But it looks fun if nothing else. The roster has some odd picks which is always good.

    Yup. Really got me there. I have accidentally unveiled my inadequacy in commenting on the character selection here by intentionally mentioning that I'm not interested in the gameplay aspects of this game.

    Clearly no human can be interested in a game's selection of characters for narrative and aesthetic purposes while also not having any interst in the gameplay of said game. Such a duality within one person is completely unheard of. Mankind was never meant to juggle a seperation of concepts so complex!

    ...they needed a reason to have all the heroes and villains duking it out. They could've picked any one of the usual cosmic villains, but they seemingly went with Galacta. Which I think is a fun oddball choice since Marvel is too cowardly to make her canon to 616 and she's only appeared in like 8 comics. I'm sorry you think her inclusion ruins the vibes of the game with the talking raccoon, super powered k-pop idol and various other quip-spouting super-people.
