The last Guardians of the Galaxy secret Easter egg might be out finally with an all new theory which sees Galactus in the MCU. Or at least Galactus’ origins, considering that the character isn’t owned by Marvel yet.
This new theory seems stronger than others and comes from Youtuber Second Son, who throws light on the section of the movie that many have looked on to for this secret. This follows the Collector as he gives out the origins of the MCU’s infinity stones, specifically the power of the Power Stone.
It’s wielded by an unknown Celestial in a large staff, the stone burns the entire planet to ashes along with all its people. Or at least, that’s what’s being assumed when a humanoid face is shown with the attack. Yes, the humanoid face and its specific expression resembles a frame from 1997’s Adventures of X-Men.
This isn’t any ordinary story but serves as a link between Guardians of the Galaxy and X-Men and is the story of the birth of Galactus. Galactus was originally named Galen Of Taa and he was the last person alive in an almost destructed universe. Before the end of the universe, the Sentinence of the Universe called out to Galen with a plan which allowed them to be joined so that it could absorb its power and survive into the next iteration of universe after the bang. He just did that and was born in the new reality as Galactus, the cosmic destroyer.
The theory gets ever more confirmed once you notice another detail from a scene. The staff held by the Celestial holding the Power stone match the helmet of Galactus and if set together, it can wipe out everyone on this unknown world thus recreating Galactus’ own origins.
Second Son then went on to compare Galactus and Star Lord: both have witnessed potential destruction, both hear a voice which gives them a new purpose and this would definitely serve as a fodder for the comic book and movie fans to debate and decide if this theory holds water.
