In “Rick and Morty” season 5 episode 5, a lot occurred. A scenario with a huge robot, however, was one of the moments that drew the audience’s attention. Was Galactus the robot from the Marvel movies?

Galactus Appeared in the Most Recent Episode
The surprise Marvel franchise cameo in the newest episode of “Rick and Morty” has fans buzzing. Rick’s spacecraft was responsible for the death of Galactus, a gigantic robot in space.
Summer, Morty, and Bruce Chutback (the new kid) deceive Rick’s ship into allowing them to assume command by saying Rick is in danger, but they get a lot more than they bargained for. The ship ultimately figures out their scheme and manipulates them back, leading them on an adventure that puts everyone’s life in grave risk.
The spacecraft is towing a solar system that Galactus consumes at one point in the story, and he is soon destroyed.

Although the character isn’t named Galactus in the episode, many believe that’s who we’re witnessing. Galactus also refers to the robot that was slain.
On Twitter, a number of admirers expressed their delight at the surprise appearance.
Another admirer provided a photo of Galactus, and the resemblance was uncanny.
“Summer and Morty destroyed Galactus,” one fan said.
Given that the Transformers themselves appeared in this episode, it’s not a leap to believe that this was the actual and true Galactus (at least in the Rick and Morty world.)
The following are some facts about Galactus’ Marvel origins (with spoilers.)
Galactus, in case you didn’t know, was initially an adversary that battled the Fantastic Four, as described. He eats planets to remain alive (which he definitely tried to do in this episode).
Galactus was once a humanoid called Galan from planet Taa, home to a highly sophisticated society, according to Marvel Fandom. He was the sole survivor of the “sixth iteration of the Multiverse.” Galan was filled with hot energy from the Big Crunch rather than being destroyed, and he fused with the “sentience of the multiverse” to become Galactus. Taa was one of the final civilizations to be wiped out by the universe’s “Big Crunch.” He acquired an insatiable need for energy, and he was forced to devour sentient planets that reminded him of his own origins.
As an intriguing side point, several fans speculated that the Summer and Morty “incest baby” from last week might grow up to be a Galactus-like figure. Although the infant seems to have no relation to the Galactus robot that was destroyed this week, the parallel was drawn in an intriguing way.
The next episode of “Rick and Morty” will broadcast on Adult Swim on Sunday, July 25 at 11 p.m. Eastern/Pacific (the Cartoon Network.) “Rick and Morty’s Thanksploitation Spectacular” will be the title of the episode.
