Galactus......Why so hungry dude??

We all know he has a parasite that makes him insatiably hungry but does this parasite also drain his power? If not then why does he need to feed to regain his power?

Wait he's got a parasite that makes him hungry? When did that get revealed? I always figured he's hungry because that's his purpose in the universe. Like maggots eating dead flesh. Circle of life thing.

Well maybe its not cannon but in Galacta she found out that she is infested by a cosmic tapeworm which is why she is so hungry all the time which has dad has. Or maybe its false and Galactus doesnt have one

Maybe thats why his hunger has increased over the years.

It hasn't really been stated that Galacta is canon. If it was, it doesn't make sense to me that Galactus would have Galacta after billions of years and she in turn would have her own pregnancy while she was still so young.

I think his hunger increases as the universe increases in size. He has to remain a balance between life and death.

But what about his power though? Does that decrease with the universe increasing?

She was hungry because she was actually pregnant.  
 
Now, can Galactus get pregnant? Is this what you are asking?  
 
You better not ask me! I heard Galactus was a lousy lay. 0_0

Heh, the title of this thread just makes me laugh. Although I didn't read too much Silver Surfer and Fantastic Four, my theory was that Galactus is the balance the universe needs to prevent it from collapsing in on itself in its earlier stages or not at all, but science was never my forte.
Edit: Then again, he may be exacting a duplicate of the universe once another collapse becomes eminent.

I wouldn't think so. He has been at low power levels since Annihilations, Godhunter and Chaos War depleting them even further. I can't say for sure why, but he is definitely getting hungrier as the universe gets older.

@SC: Oh, that Infinity is just one universal gossip!

I didn`t even know that there is some kind of parasite in Galactus.   
 Well, it might be so that the tapeworm gives him his powers. But if that worm doesn`t get any food, it cannot give powers. 
 Or hopefully it`s wrong information. Because seriously, that`s uncomfortably un-realistic. To me, at least.

@kfhrfdu_89_76k: That info is based on the Galacta books, which as far as any of us know, are not in main continuity. It also doesn't make a whole lot of sense, but it has nothing to do with his (or her) power level, just hunger level.

Reed Richards had to upgrade the banhammer machine into the Ultimate Nullifier (AKA, Banhammer 2.0) to rid Earth of this troll.

Whiuh! I got a little worried for a second there. 
 Also, I think that the best explonation would be that his hunger is as big as it always has been, but people just think that he`s hungrier than ever. Or, it could be the universe expanding explonation.
