History: Morg became Galactus’s herald, when Galactus became dissatisfied with his current herald, Nova’s, performance. Nova had too much compassion and mercy for life and spared a planet Galactus could have feasted on. So, Galactus sought after a new herald, who was more ruthless. He found Morg when he came to Morg’s planet, to devour it. Morg said he did not care about his fellow citizens, but for his own life. Galactus spared him and made him into his herald, then devoured his planet. Morg then became Galactus’s herald, through the Surfer had strong disapproval. Morg eventually found a planet for Galactus, which had a special power source called the Waters of Life. Morg absorbed the Waters of Life and became even more powerful. Silver Surfer considered this to be a threat and assembled the other former heralds. They banned together to fight Morg, but were not powerful enough. If it wasn’t for Galactus intervening they would have surely lost. Galactus agreed that Morg had too much power and took the Power Cosmic away from him. With just the power he absorbed from the Waters of Life, Morg was easily defeated by the heralds and killed by Terrax, but not after he killed Nova.

He was later restored to life by Galactus and set out after Terrax to retrieve his axe. He battled Terrax to the verge of defeat and death before Tyrant's minions attacked them both and captured them as they had "tired themselves out on each other." He was later freed alongside fellow prisoners of Tyrant (Silver Surfer, Beta Ray Bill, Gladiator, Ganymede, and Terrax) by Jack of Hearts. He battled alongside those fellow prisoners briefly against Tyrant before he re-engaged Terrax in combat. He was then subsequently overwhelmed by Tyrant’s minions and kept as prisoner by Tyrant again to prevent a premature confrontation between Galactus and Tyrant since Galactus presumably was not at the top of his game. He was kept for months as prisoner and his waters of life powers seriously depleted and was interrogated by Tyrant in an attempt to subvert his will to that of Tyrant. It was on this occasion that background was put forth. He was reinvigorated with cosmic power by Tyrant who mind controlled him in an attempt to repulse the attack of his fortress by Thanos, Ganymede and Terrax. He battled all and nearly killed each but was stunned by Thanos and inadvertedly freed by Terrax during the battle. Upon the arrival of Captain Marvel III and Jack of Hearts, he returned to Galactus.

He later tried to defeat Tyrant, who was attacking Galactus, by using the Ultimate Nullifier. He lost control, however, and they all supposedly were killed by the Ultimate Nullifier. Galactus has since reappeared, showing that he had not died after all. Morg, however, is still presumed dead.
