Galactus of Borg by wobblyone Galactus of Borg by wobblyone
An idea for a crossover type thing, having Galactus assimilate the Borg and bring them to Earth during Kirk's Star Trek era.

Galactus, the Enterprise & the Borg cubes were drawn manually in pen & ink then scanned in & colored with Photoshop. The background Space & Earth were adapted from generic reference pics.

Now that's a nightmare scenario.

Marvel did something like this with their Ultimate comics....Galactus was dumped into the Ultimate Marvel universe and ALLOWED the Gah Lak Tus drone swarm to MERGE with him. Big G was the one driving, the swarm did his bidding, so something like this is actually quite plausible.

As if the pathetic space zombies somehow add anything to the power of Galactus.
NakedCrook Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2014
That is not how it works...

Those Space Zombies defeated Galactus, and added his distinctiveness (and his power) to their own.

Galactus lost.

Which makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.
Galactus devours entire planets. He can wipe out entire star systems with a thought. He is equal in power to the physical embodiments of Death, Infinity, Eternity and Oblivion in the Marvel universe. He's essentially a living, thinking, doing-whatever-the-fuck-he-wants weaponized universal constant. He is not something that you can destroy with lasers or subvert with nanomachines. If you want to take him out, you either need to be able to warp the fabric of reality on a multiversal scale or have ridiculously high-end magic (which, in effect, is no different from the former), two things that the Borg do not have.
The Borg, by comparison, are ants. In fact, even that's being generous. They control, what, a fourth of a galaxy? Even less than that, I think. Galactus wouldn't even be inconvenienced by them; he could just turn them into slime with a thought. Worst comes to worst? Use the Ultimate Nullifier on them. What is the Ultimate Nullifier, you ask? It destroys everything and anything you want it to, as long as you know what it is. You don't like the color blue? Fuck blue! It's been nullified. The Borg are fucking with you? Not anymore!
Someone can draw a picture of the Borg somehow managing to assimilate Galactus, even though it makes absolutely no fucking sense whatsoever, sure. I can also draw a picture of a five year old with polio taking down the Hulk, it doesn't prove anything.
P.S. If you beat Galactus, then Abraxas comes out and destroys the multiverse, so even if the Borg beat him they'd still get fucked over.

IMO if Galactus encountered such a species he'd take them over.  I'm more on your side he could wipe them out (?absorb/Eat?) if he wanted.

On the other hand, imagine those as a perfect "Herald" system.  He uses a "Herald" since moving himself through space takes up the most energy and makes him hungrier - so he has a herald to both make it more efficient for him and actually to reduce the damage he does.  The latter is purely selfish, concerned to last until the end of the universe and if he ate too rapidly he could eliminate his food supply.

The problem is - and that's Marvel history - he's had ...issues... with Heralds.
Simply having his ultra powerful will and power cosmic overcome the Borg and use them as a "Herald Swarm" is a better idea.  They have a Hive Mind that a godlike intellect could dominate in a heartbeat.  Instead of issues from evil ones trying to take more power vs good ones that get overcome with guilt over their actions, the swarm has a will that can be influenced but no personal thought.  They would be far harder to fight off than high powered individuals and fighting them off or delaying them would only mean the destruction of a species when the weakened opponent faced Galactus.

Galactus consumes worlds while the Borg consume knowledge and civilizations.  It'd be more benign or worse depending on one's opinion.  The Borg would come ahead and fully strip a world of life forms and materials to make a few more cubes then welcome Galactus to devour.  They would make space civilizations in the cosmos or on the planets somehow that Galactus couldn't eat.  Since there would be so many over such distance with Galactus's Power Cosmic communicating and keeping them in check Galactus would never hunger for a meal while the Borg would consider themselves the saviors of countless races from death.

You know, that actually sounds pretty plausible, seeing as Galactus meeting Gah Lak Tus (Big G's counterpart from the Ultimate universe, a hive-minded robotic swarm similar to the Borg) resulted in them fusing together, with the original Galactus controlling them all of course.

Galactus lost. Deal with it.

Maybe slightly less fucked: at the very least, there will be something left of your planet after he assimilates it...

Unless he assimilates the world itself, a world sized borg ship

so does he assimilate then eat lol

Funny thing about him getting assimilated. A lot of people would be all "Neeeuuuuwww, hims can't be turned into a Beeeoooorrrrg!" but bear in mind, he was eaten by zombies once. Anything is possible since then.

No way! Galactus doesn't assimilate the Borg, the Borg assimilate him! :D
Not that I don't like Galactus, just the Borg are so much cooler. :P
DarthCloakedGuy Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2012
Galactus > the Borg. They're cooler, but he could take them all at once and win.

You know, like he does 99.5% of everything else.

I saw this originally on 4chan awhile back and loved it even then.

:altermind: alert -- I'm into the Wold Newton/mixed fictional history scene, and this art of yours inspired in me a theory that, in "real life", Galactus was the result of an ill-advised attempt by the Borg to assimilate one of the Beings (TOS: "Who Mourns For Adonis?") . Possibly Pluto... Marvel's Pluto often wore armor that had a Galactus aspect to it.
