Galactus is one of the Fantastic Four comic series' villains. It is said he can eat planets, so he must be huge. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find it anywhere, but maybe I could have missed some comic where it was stated.

So how tall is Galactus?

28 Feet 9 Inches (9.07 meters)


28'9" (variable)

Although he can be any size he want, he's usually about that size.

As to how he eats planets, he doesn't use his mouth. Rather, he converts the planet to cosmic energy and absorbs it. See this answer for a more detailed explanation.

  • How does he eat planets if he's only as tall as a telephone pole?
