Aight, added all the cards except for 37 to 45, which my friend has right now. I got to get them and scan them. Added them all to the front page, so all 72 plus the promo card are on the front page and not spread throughout a bunch of pages.


Gonna take a long time to load for anyone with dialup, it's over 7 megs worth of pics.

I just added the card name to the last of them, going to go back and type out all the info on them from the back, but it takes time. It's fun to do, fun little hobby to kill time, but I will get to it at my liesure.

Soon as I get cards 37 to 45, I will post them, I don't even know what they look like yet. Ordered them from Ebay, and the lady forgot a page of them, and she sent them later but I havn't picked them up from my friend yet.

I think it's very strange that the #69 card is overtly sexual. The surfer is looking at the chick and.....

aight, added 37 to 45. Most of them were of Thanos. Don't care for him too much. Kind of a grade A jerk.



I like the one of death, she looked cool on her throne.

from Wikipedia

Galactus is a fictional character, a cosmic entity in the Marvel Comics universe. Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby as an antagonist for the Fantastic Four, the character first appeared in Fantastic Four vol. 1, #48 (Mar. 1966), the first part of a three-issue story later known as "The Galactus Trilogy".[1] [2] Wizard Magazine rated him the 18th greatest villain.[3]

Fictional character biography
Rebirth
Originally named Galan of the planet Taa, Galactus is the sole survivor of the Big Crunch of the universe that existed prior to occurrence of the Big Bang, which led to the present-day Marvel Universe.
Galan was a space explorer investigating the impending end of his universe. Eventually, Taa was engulfed by a radiation plague that killed almost all its inhabitants. At the last second, Galan escapes the doomed planet in a star-ship with a few other survivors. Rather than perish from the lethal radiation that had extinguished all life across the universe, Galan proposes to his crewmates that they pilot their craft directly into the center of the Big Crunch. As he approaches the Cosmic egg — the focal point of the Big Crunch and the source of the exterminating radiation — his ship and crew are promptly destroyed. At the moment Galan's universe meets its end, the incarnation of that reality's Phoenix Force amasses the positive emotions of all living beings in the cosmos to preserve them from eternal damnation, enabling the Sentience of the Universe —that universe's incarnation of Eternity— to meet with Galan.[4][5] Within the Cosmic Egg the Sentience of the Universe reveals itself to Galan and informs him that though they both will die in the impending cataclysm, they will survive through a joint heir born into the next universe. The Sentience of the Universe then merges itself with the mortal Galan, establishing Galan as the sole survivor of the ensuing Big Crunch. This union ultimately leads to his rebirth in the current universe as Galactus.[6] After the Big Bang and the birth of the current reality, Galactus gestates in a cocoon of cosmic energy to complete his metamorphosis, and after millions of years emerges as an entity of vast cosmic power who is essential and intrinsic to the newly formed universe.[6]
Galactus is considered one of the five essential entities within the Marvel Universe alongside Eternity, Death, Infinity, and Oblivion. Galactus has been referred to as the "third force of the universe" [7] alongside Eternity and Death. Eternity and Death consider Galactus a peer and a sibling, with Death actually referring to Galactus on one occasion as "husband, father, brother, and son." [8] It has also been suggested but not proven that the entity the In-Betweener is Galactus' metaphysical counterpart. [9]

The Devourer of Worlds

Galactus roams the universe in search of planets to sustain himself.
Galactus maintains his existence by devouring planets that have the potential for supporting life. He has consumed countless planets, resulting in the elimination of entire extra-terrestrial civilizations. For this purpose, Galactus usually employs a Herald (see below) to scour the universe in search of suitable planets.
Upon pinpointing the requisite planetary body, the herald will signal Galactus, resulting in the Devourer's arrival on the world's surface and the deployment of the Elemental Converter—a colossal machine capable of draining all life energy from the planet within minutes. While the Converter makes consumption of the planet's energy more efficient, Galactus is fully capable of devouring planets without its aid.[10]
Due to his vast power and intrinsic, natural role in the universal order, Galactus considers himself a higher being than all non-abstracts, and as such has become more morally complex in recent decades, coming to embody a force of cosmic nature and proving to be a necessary being for the universe to exist.

Galactus has threatened to consume the Earth on several occasions. During the first encounter, the cosmic entity the Watcher, and, later, Galactus' rebellious herald, the Silver Surfer, aid the Fantastic Four. Galactus is defeated when Mister Fantastic threatens him with the Ultimate Nullifier, the one weapon capable of destroying him (the weapon is obtained by the Human Torch when the Watcher transports him to Galactus' vessel). Galactus leaves and vows to never attack the Earth again.[11] Galactus does however, return to Earth space to seek the Silver Surfer[12] and is eventually released from his vow by Mr. Fantastic so that he can stop the threat of the cosmic entity the Sphinx.[13]
In one significant encounter, Galactus returns to Earth in pursuit of his rebellious Herald Terrax. Galactus expends a considerable amount of energy in the pursuit, and finally arrives with the intention of consuming Earth to replenish himself. A hungry and weakened Galactus resolves the issue with Terrax, but is so diminished in strength that he is defeated by the combined efforts of the Fantastic Four, the Avengers, and Doctor Strange. However, rather than watch Galactus die of hunger, Mister Fantastic uses a device powered by the thunder god Thor to reinvigorate him. A grateful Galactus vows that Earth is safe from his feedings before departing.[14] Mr. Fantastic's decision has consequences, however, as he is later placed on trial by a consortium of alien worlds for his actions. The Shi'ar preside over the trial, and look to execute Mr. Fantastic until the cosmic entity Eternity is summoned by the combined effort of Galactus and the Watcher. Eternity then enables millions of alien onlookers to momentarily become one with the universe, temporarily granting them the clarity that Galactus is part of the natural order of the cosmos.[15]

Heralds
Main article: Herald of Galactus
Galactus has over time appointed a number of beings to act as his Herald, with each being bestowed a fraction of the Power Cosmic so as to locate planets suitable for consumption. His known Heralds to date have included the Fallen One,[16] the Silver Surfer,[17] Air-Walker (and later Air-Walker robot),[18] Firelord,[19] the Asgardian Destroyer armor,[20] Terrax,[21] Nova,[22] Morg,[23] Red Shift,[24] the Human Torch,[25] and Stardust.[26] Curiously many of Galactus' Heralds have either rebelled against him, betrayed him or been cast aside.

Temporary death
Galactus recently discovered he was "starving" to death due to an addiction to the life forces of living beings which offer no sustenance, and was apparently killed when the Silver Surfer turned Galactus' own Elemental Converter against him. As Galactus dies he warns that his death will allow a great evil to surface. After his death, Galactus' remains took the form of a star.[27]
That great evil that Galactus spoke of emerged a year later in the form of the Biblical demon Abraxas, the universal embodiment of destruction and the antithesis of Eternity. The Fantastic Four discover that most of the energy that Galactus took from planets was devoted to keeping Abraxas imprisoned as, if released, the entity will eventually destroy the entire multiverse.[28] Franklin Richards pools his Celestial-level power with that of his sister Valeria Von Doom and reconstitutes Galactus, but the siblings permanently burn out their powers in doing so. The newly reformed Galactus reclaims the Ultimate Nullifier from Abraxas, and Reed Richards uses it to remake the multiverse into a version in which Abraxas never escapes. The Ultimate Nullifier is revealed to be an aspect of Galactus himself.[29]
Soon after however, Reed Richards designs a weapon with the express purpose of stripping Galactus of the Power Cosmic. The creation of the device is made possible with help from Quasar and Johnny Storm, who is cosmically aware at this time. The weapon succeeds in separating Galactus into his two core components - Galan and the Power Cosmic. Galan then exiles himself in another dimension, hoping that this act will prevent the Power Cosmic from finding him.[30] The ruse fails, however, as a fully reformed Galactus encounters the alien warrior Beta Ray Bill soon after.[31] The manner in which the Power Cosmic finds Galan has not been revealed.

Annihilation
Galactus is a member of a group of entities called the "Cosmic Balance". After a brutal civil war that only three beings survived — Galactus the Devourer of Worlds, Tenebrous of the Darkness Between, and Aegis the Lady of All Sorrows — Galactus imprisons his brethren in the Kyln, until the Annihilation Wave frees them. Knowing of their escape, Galactus augments his herald the Silver Surfer and engages them.[32] The battle brings Galactus into contact with the beings Thanos, Drax the Destroyer, and Annihilus, the mastermind behind the Annihilation Wave. The Annihilation Wave and at least three star systems and a Watcher are destroyed by a blast from Galactus resulting in an armistice between all parties.[33]

Powers and abilities
Galactus wields the immeasurable Power Cosmic and has been described as "the most powerful creature in the universe."[34]As such, Galactus is able to employ the limitless cosmic energies within him to produce nearly any effect he desires, including size-alteration,[35] the molecular restructuring and transmutation of matter,[36] the teleportation of objects—even entire galaxies—across space and time,[37] the erection of impenetrable force fields,[36] the creation of interdimensional portals,[38] telepathy, [39] telekinesis, [40] and cosmic awareness on a universal scale. [41]

Galactus has even shown the abilities to create sentient life in the form of Tyrant,[42] resurrect
his herald Morg,[43] manipulate mortal souls,[44] and remake dead worlds—including their populations — in every detail.[45]
Galactus requires his armor to help regulate his internal energies. As Galactus must continuously feed to sustain himself, his power levels are inconsistent throughout any given period. For this reason, Earth's heroes have been able to achieve various degrees of success in repelling — though not defeating — a starving, weakened Galactus.[46]
As the oldest known living entity in this universe, Galactus employs technology that by Mr. Fantastic's own admission—perhaps the most brilliant mind on Earth—he cannot even begin to grasp. [47]

Physical appearance
Although Galactus is usually perceived as a giant, armoured humanoid (the armour is removable), each species perceives Galactus in a form resembling its own. [15] As a being who is both an abstract entity (e.g. Death, Eternity, et al) and a physical creature, Galactus' true form and nature are beyond the capability of mortal beings to comprehend. He has, however, adopted the appearance of a roughly humanoid energy being on at least three occasions. [48]

Thanos is a fictional character that appears in the Marvel Universe. Thanos is a Titanian Eternal, and is often referred to as the Mad Titan. The character's name is a derivation of Thanatos, the god of death in Greek mythology. Thanos was created by Jim Starlin and first appeared in Iron Man vol. 1, #55.

Publication history
Thanos was created by Jim Starlin and first appeared in Iron Man vol. 1, #55.

He has had his own self-titled series, which ran for 12 issues from 2003 - 2004.


Fictional character biography

Childhood
Thanos is born on Titan, a moon of the planet Saturn. Due to a genetic quirk Thanos is born with the Deviant gene and as such resembles the Deviants - the Eternals' cousin race - more than his own people.

Although treated fairly by his race, Thanos is mindful of his appearance and becomes distant, only keeping company with his brother Eros. Thanos matures to adulthood, and via the use of bionics and mysticism augments his abilities to easily become the most powerful of the Titanian-born Eternals.[1]

Bitter at being an outsider, Thanos becomes fascinated with nihilism and then embarks on his quest to "please" death, and begins by conducting a nuclear bombardment of Titan that kills millions of his race. Thanos' mother is thought to have died during the bombardment, but years later it is discovered that he kidnaps and then dissects her.[2] He later travels to Earth, and prior to landing his vessel destroys a nearby car to prevent anyone from becoming aware of his existence. Unknown to Thanos, two of the family members in the vehicle survive - the father's spirit is preserved by the Titanian cosmic entity Chronos and is given a new form as Drax the Destroyer while the daughter is found by Thanos' father Mentor and is raised to become Moondragon.[3]


The First Thanos War
Many years later, Thanos begins his plan to conquer the galaxy by building a base on Earth and constructing a space vessel in the solar system that acts as a "universal translator" for his huge army of alien mercenaries, so that they can understand each other's language. It is at this time that Mistress Death - drawn by the level of Thanos' obsession and his now considerable power - manifests itself before Thanos, being an abstract entity and the personification of the universal concept of death. Thanos becomes determined to prove his "love" to Death for this sign of affection, and embarks on a quest to find the artifact the Cosmic Cube. It is at this time that Thanos finds himself opposed by the superheroes of Earth, who initially fight Thanos' forces in a rather disjointed fashion:


Captain Marvel vol. 1, #28. Art by Jim Starlin.
Marvel Two-In-One Annual #2. Art by Jim Starlin.Iron Man and Drax storm Thanos' base and fight Thanos' minions, the Blood Brothers.[4]
Captain Marvel becomes aware of Thanos courtesy of his cosmic awareness and explains the threat to Daredevil, the Black Widow and Moondragon while Thanos hunts for the Cosmic Cube.[5]
The Avengers destroy the vessel acting as a translator for Thanos' mercenaries.[6]
Thanos eventually locates the Cube,[7] and uses his minions the Super-Skrull and the Controller to try and destroy Captain Marvel, who rallies Eros, Mentor, Drax, Moondragon and the Avengers against Thanos. Thanos uses the Cube and wills it to allow him to be part of - and therefore in control of - everything.

Although Thanos is now omnipotent and easily defeats the heroes, he makes the mistake of discarding what he believes to be a now drained Cube. Captain Marvel shatters the Cube, which undoes Thanos' wish. Thanos then discovers that Death has abandoned him as result of this defeat, and retreats.[8] Iron Man later investigates Thanos' old base and together with the Thing battles the Blood Brothers again.[9]

Thanos journeys into deep space and learns of the Universal Church of Truth, led by the being the Magus, a warped and future version of the hero Adam Warlock. Deciding that the Magus is a threat to his plans, and after finding the child Gamora - whose race has been exterminated by the Church - Thanos raises and trains her to assassinate the Magus.

Thanos also joins forces with Adam Warlock, who is unaware of the fact that the Magus is actually the Champion of Life and that Thanos is the Champion of Death. The two eventually battle, and Thanos feigns defeat to allow Adam Warlock time to manipulate the timeline and undo the Magus.[10] It is during this alliance Thanos secretly siphons off the energies of the Soul Gem that Warlock possesses, and after leaving Adam Warlock, Thanos embarks on his next quest to appease Death.


The Second Thanos War
Thanos combines the energies from the Soul Gem with the energies of the other Infinity Gems to power a weapon that is capable of destroying a star. Thanos then plans to painstakingly snuff out every star in the universe as a gift to Death. Gamora discovers Thanos' intentions and attempts to kill him, but is mortally wounded herself. Adam Warlock's unsuspecting ally Pip the Troll is also killed.

Gamora lives long enough to warn a returning Adam Warlock, who travels to Earth and enlists the aid of the Avengers, Captain Marvel and Moondragon. After attacking and dealing with Thanos' mercenary fleet, most of the Avengers and Moondragon storm Sanctuary I, Thanos' vessel. Thor and Iron Man follow Adam Warlock and Captain Marvel, who confront Thanos directly. Captain Marvel destroys the weapon's launcher, but Thanos then kills an attacking Warlock. Thor holds off Thanos while Iron Man destroys the weapon itself, and an enraged Thanos then defeats the remaining heroes. The cosmic entities Lord Order and Master Chaos intervene, and via a subconscious message draw Spider-Man and the Thing into the battle. Spider-Man frees my heroes, and then makes contact with the Soul Gem, releasing the spirit of Adam Warlock, who then turns Thanos to stone.[11]


Infinity
Years later, the Silver Surfer witnesses the resurrection of Thanos by Mistress Death, who feels that Death needs a champion once again. A revived Thanos decides to collect the Infinity Gems, which he takes from the In-Betweener and the Elders of the Universe. Thanos then combines the gems on his left glove to create the Infinity Gauntlet, which allows him to exceed the power he once possessed with the Cosmic Cube.[12]

Thanos honors Death by erasing half the population of the universe, and then goes on to defeat the entire cosmic hierarchy (e.g., Galactus, the Celestials, Eternity) as Death watches. A group of Earth's superheroes almost defeat an overconfident Thanos, who then loses the Gauntlet to the space pirate Nebula, who claims to be his granddaughter. Nebula then undoes all of Thanos' changes, only to then lose the Gauntlet shortly after to Adam Warlock.


Thanos wearing the Infinity Gauntlet. Infinity Gauntlet #1 (July 1991).
Art by George Perez.Thanos realizes that it was his own self-doubt that allowed for his defeat, and when confronted by the superheroes activates a nuclear device in his costume, telling them he prefers death to imprisonment. With no time to deactivate the device, Thor throws his hammer Mjolnir into Thanos, hurling him miles away. Thanos, however, creates a ruse and teleports away just as the device detonates. Only Adam Warlock - in possession of the Infinity Gauntlet - is aware of the deception, and notes that Thanos now has chance to reform.[13]

Thanos does reform for a time, and is eventually given the Reality Gem by Adam Warlock to safeguard.[14] At one point Thanos uses the gem to resurrect the hero Captain Marvel, who died during the time that Thanos himself was dead. Thanos seeks forgiveness for his past actions and claims he wished to test the power of the gem. Captain Marvel, however, knowing of Thanos' self-doubts, guesses the truth and suspects that he has been resurrected to try and dissuade Thanos from his real goal: using the gem to make Mistress Death love him.

Thanos confesses and at Captain Marvel's request allows him to return to the afterlife. Thanos then assists Adam Warlock and Earth's superheroes against first the Magus and later the Goddess - the evil and good personas of Warlock, who expunged them to become omnipotent when possessing the Infinity Gauntlet.[15] Soon after helping to defeat the Goddess, Thanos battles the Thunder God Thor, who was driven insane during the war. After taking a beating from Thor - now empowered with the Power Gem - Thanos manages to imprison him and take Thor to Asgard, home of the Norse Gods. Once in Asgard Thanos battles Thor's father Odin, who eventually overpowers him. It is at this point, however, that Odin discover he is indirectly responsible for Thor's insanity, and aids Thor in curing himself.[16]

this is pretty neat, not the best animation, but not too shabby. Goes into the history of the surfer and how he came to be. I like the animation on Glactus.
