Has Marvel forgotten about Stardust?

I have't seen Stardust since Godhunter. She was absent in Galactus and the Surfers appearances in Son of Hulk and has not been seen in the Thanos Imperative either. So, where is she? She's totally loyal to Galactus, I see no reason why Stardust shouldn't be around except Marvel has forgotten she exists.  
 
Am I the only one who likes this character?

There is no reason why she shouldn't be there, but it would appear that with the Galaxy's Mightiest Heroes coming up in Thanos Imperative # 3, the creative team probably thought that the scope and the cast of characters was already far too vast for them to attempt and incorporate one more character (who isn't a straight up hero, either). I'd prefer her to Ronan - she would offer greater blast power, and more versatility to the group, but ultimately, I can understand her absence, same with Firelord.
 
However, her and Bill becoming comrades, albeit unwittingly, would be interesting to see.

I don't even necessarily need her to have any major parts or even any dialogue. Just have her there battling in the background or fighting along side Galactus. Just more of an acknowledgement that she is still around and still a herald of Galactus.  
 
I can understand Firelord not being around, he gets no love :(   Damn that Spider-Man 
 
I am very happy to see Beta Ray Bill though. It's hard to imagine which one hates which more, I'm leaning towards Bill from Stormbreaker but then I remember Godhunter and I think Stardust. They have worked together, but it would be interesting, especially if Galactus had to tell her whats what.

I think the biggest reason you don't see Stardust is because Marvel is using the Thanos Imperative to revitalize Silver Surfer much like Annihilation did for Nova and Annihilation Conquest did for the GotG. I don't think Abbnet and Lanning would forget about her considering what they did at the end of Annihilation with her sacrificing the last of her race to feed Galactus.

@Nova`Prime`: I hope you are right and the Surfer gets a good series out of this.  
 
Thanks you two, the only ones who ever respond to a cosmic thread. :)

I don't know, but I had. I love the name, though. Stardust. Very poetic and charismatic.

I hope she doesn't stay in comic book limbo too long. But she should be present along side Galactus since she is the second current Herald of Galactus.
A new Surfer series now that is something I would like to read, hopefully it will be a good one.

I can definitely agree with that.
 
 
I'm always happy to see BRB in just about anything, he is a great character, and a true powerhouse who deserves more time, and it's a good surprise that he will be part of the team. I think Stardust hates him more for the time being due to the fact that he bested her handily in their most recent encounter.

I would love to see this, but I prefer not to get my hopes high about it.
 
I don't think Abnett and Lanning were behind either issue of Annihilation: Heralds of Galactus, though.

@jloneblackheart: @Morpheus_:  You do realize that Stardust is a boy right?

@Fist_of_Mandalore: Stardust has been called he and she in the comics. Most recently, Stardust was cast with a female voice on Super Hero Squad.

@jloneblackheart: Oh, alright. See I've only ever read he/she being called a he, so I didn't know. Lol.

So, Galactus and the Silver Surfer are currently appearing in the Fantastic Four and in Chaos War. Still no Stardust.

Apparently they forgot... but it doesn't suprise me, although its possible maybe down the line they will explain the absence. Maybe she's off looking for suitable worlds for Galactus to consume.

Stardust is androgenous.(hope I spelled that correctly.) It changes between genders based on the writer. I consider it more female though, but that's just me

Stardust is androgynous and asexual.(hope I spelled that correctly.) It changes between genders based on the writer. I consider it more female though, but that's just me

@jloneblackheart: Thanks.. if I knew they'd put it on a milk carton I'd actually submit it.

So, a new herald was chosen for Galactus to take the place of the Silver Surfer - BECAUSE HE NEEDED A HERALD.
