Galactus could bring the MCU together again

Alternatively, the arch-villain of the second era of the MCU could be Fantastic Four antagonist Galactus. Like Thanos, Galactus is a cosmic being with the ability to destroy worlds. However, as opposed to the Mad Titian, Galactus is not a villain, he’s a force nature.

The sole survivor of a universe that preceded this one, Galactus is a giant immortal creature possessing godlike power. His one weakness is a constant craving for large amounts of energy, a craving that can only be satisfied by consuming entire planets. And with the help of a group of cosmically empowered heralds, Galactus roams the universe obliterating worlds and annihilating entire cultures. And because of his immense power, nothing in the universe can stop him.

In his first appearance in an early issue of the Fantastic Four, Galactus made his way to Earth and newly made humanity extinct. And though he was stopped, he wasn’t defeated in the conventional sense. He was just persuaded to find a different target. And decades after his first appearance, Galactus has continued to cut a swath of destruction through the Marvel comic book universe despite the best efforts of its mightiest heroes.

As an all-powerful threat that can’t be reasoned with, outwitted, overpowered or killed, Galactus could fill Thanos’ shoes as a threat so big it brings together the entire MCU, hero and villain alike. And though he is primarily a Fantastic Four character, he’s had significant clashes with the Avengers, Thor, Dr. Strange, and members of the X-Men. And because of his simple and atavistic nature, he could be introduced to the Marvel movies without the need for any retroactive continuity changes.
