The Herald of Galactus, Terrax went to Earth with the intention of summoning his master to devour the world. However, he was soon defeated by Hulk and the agents of S.M.A.S.H.

Despite having apparently defeated him before he could summon Galactus, the planet eater appeared all the same, revealing his true goal. Due to his repeated failure, Terrax was sent to Earth, not to prepare it for the coming of Galactus, but to draw out the one Galactus considered fitting for a new Herald, the Hulk. The green Avenger refused, but Galactus accepted this, having found a suitable replacement in She-Hulk for not only besting Terrax, but attempting to stand up to him.

Later, when the Hulks attempted to defeat Galactus, She-Hulk realised they were not going to succeed. Following Terrax out into the desert, she made a deal with the former Herald. The two would fight again, She-Hulk throwing the battle in order to make Terrax look good and convince Galactus to reinstate Terrax as his herald. In return, Terrax would not only lead Galactus away from Earth, but avoid leading him to planets inhabited by intelligent life in the future.[1]

At some point afterwords, Terrax was replaced by Firelord when deemed unworthy of being Galactus' herald. Though it was assumed he was killed, he still lived to compete in the Collector's Contest of Champions.[2]
