    Reviews - Beta Ray Bill: Godhunter - #3

Eh...Good Idea, Weak Execution - whoffkne
So I am a huge fan of Galactus storylines and I held high hopes for this series, but is disappointed again.

When I first heard that they were doing a series where someone got absolutely fed up with Galactus and decided that it was time for someone to take him out, I was excited. I love the idea of this totally magnanimous God-like creature that destroys at will and someone much weaker deciding to attack him, the David and Goliath story, but this was not the ending I was hoping to see. Issue two ended with Beta Ray Bill losing the grace of Odin by his actions and still having to try to fight Galactus without the assistance of a God at all. I found that intriguing, but then this last part of the story starts with him not really caring that he lost his greatest ally and instead just getting some big guns.

Then, finally, as Galactus is weak and hungry and just about at Beta Ray Bill's mercy, Beta decides to save him from another attacking force instead of dealing the final blow. The reasoning being that if Galactus were to die he would destroy a huge chunk of the universe with him and Beta did not want that blood on his hands, but by letting him live he is allowing even more blood to be spilled and Beta had done some horrible things to get to this point already, so I do not buy the reasoning for the saving him at all.

I am not saying that Galactus had to die to satisfy me, but I wanted to see Galactus either extremely humbled or a huge battle between the two and neither of those really happened. I did like that in the end Galactus was thankful to Beta and granted him a gift by resurrecting one of the Korbanites. That was kind of cool to see.

I expected better and I think they could have done much better with this. Galactus storys hold so much possibility because of his seemingly endless powers, but I do not think that the writers play on that enough.
