What else is Galactus supposed to do with his spare time?

Before he had heralds, Galactus created a program that spread throughout the universe. When it arrive at a suitable planet for him to consume, it would seed in an intelligent being, who would in turn create a robot capable of absorbing the Power Cosmic and destroying any defenses the planet might use to try and stop Galactus from consuming the planet. Basically, a way for his to save energy from swatting flies.

IIRC, Hulk was chosen due to the fear he induced in most humans.
