Has there ever been a Phoenix/Galactus confrontation?

#1 Posted by RainEffect (3240 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm trying to get more acquainted with the cosmic side of Marvel (Nova, Thanos Imperative, Phoenix and X-Men arcs etc) and a nifty thought popped into my mind. I read that Dark Phoenix has the power to destroy planets without much effort. Does that put her on the same level as Galactus? More importantly, has there ever been a confrontation between the two?
 
Thanks for the help!

Not between Jean and Galactus, but Rachel once fought Galactus with the power of the Phoenix Force and won!

  Probably going to be the latter, but I'll ask anyway.  So was it completely one-sided, or did big G at least put up a decent fight?

Great, it looks like the Grey women have once again destroyed the reputation of another great character. Good job you overpowered characters

@CurbsideProphet: Well G was "hungry" at the time, which weakened him. Pretty sure she wooped him, but not positive. I haven't actually read this issue, so you might be able to find someone who knows it better. But I've seen it talked about a a a lot, and the general idea is Phoenix Force > Galactus. You can check out the battles thread for more information on that.

Yeah she beat so bad he was near death at the end of their fight, he only lived because of speech he gave that showed her that her presence in the current universe was causing future generations to not be born so she left
