    Default Earth vs Galactus

    Can any version of earth from any universe or genre soundly defeat a hungry world eater? Galactus is fully equipted with his huge starship, punisher robots and most powerful herald (Silver Surfer).

    1 - Silver Surfer isn't the most powerful.
    2 - How hungry?
    3 - Sure, there are that have individuals that can defeat Galactus (Marvel Earth has this, for example). So do you mean "Happens to have one guy who can beat him" or "Actually has a species that can through innate power/technology beat him"?
    Suffering is a fact of life. You survive if you find a reason to endure it.

    1. Thats hard to despute when a new herald is retconned every ten years.
    2. Not starving but hungry enough to be relevant.
    3. Very few of these individuals can defeat Galactus without destroying the planet. Earth must remain intact.

    It doesn't really have anything with retcons. It's just that the Destroyer Armor was used as an Herald at one point.

    Could of sworn Galactus had the thing powered down to below it's normal levels though when it was a herald. So the power levels it was operating on at the time might not surpass SS levels.

    Irrelevant now though, considering we also have The Fallen One and Waters of Life Morg.

    Surfer just ISN'T the most powerful. He's simply more powerful than the more commonly used ones (although Nova had a fair bit of oomph as well).
    Yes, I know the voices aren't real. But they do have some VERY good ideas....

    Pre-Retcon Owen Reece or Adult Franklin Richards could do so just fine, actually.

    Mad Jim Jaspers though.... yeah, you'd be right. Earth would be screwed.
