Vs. System Deck: The Coming of Galactus TCG Review

Unleash the power of Galactus in the Vs. System card game! Can you and your friends stop the eater of worlds? We review it.

He's big, he's bad and he eats planets. He's Galactus! He showed up as a great black space cloud in the Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer movie, but in the comics he's a huge guy in purple pants and a really big hat. Normally the Fantastic Four pull some superpowered shenanigans to keep him from eating the Earth, but now the Coming of Galactus deck lets you control him and challenge your friends to build superhero decks and battle to stop him and his heralds. Here's the scoop on the deck with our game review.

Giant Purple Pants

This giant deck lets one player control Galactus while two to four other players play regular decks, combining forces to stop the huge dude. Each team gets 100 life points and the first to zero loses. Galactus starts with extra resources, draws more cards, and has stronger cards to play - including EPIC cards where Galactus himself slaps the opposition around like tiny little superpowered insects. Starting on turn three, Planet cards create a challenge. If Galactus wins, he eats the planet and gets a new super-strong ability, if the heroes win they save the planet!

Eating Earth With Ketchup = Yum!

Want an excuse to have a couple friends over for a massive superhero brawl? Want to see if Dr. Doom and the Sinister Six could take Galactus? This is the ticket! It's an epic smashfest that lets you form the weirdest superhero/villain teams to challenge a massive opponent. Plus, the combined team life points means nobody gets knocked out until the very end, and the different planet cards add a random twist to each turn.

Planet-Sized Indigestion!

As cool as this deck is, you need at least three superhero players or Galactus will stomp 'em flat. It also takes more than a lunch hour to play, so you can't really play it at school.


If you have a few friends who like comics and the fantastic Vs. System card game, this is perfect for splitting the cost and buying. Galactus makes for a great game and you can challenge him over and over with different teams and different planet challenges each time. Unfortunately, it's not always easy to get enough players to battle the giant purple dude.

Thumbs Up:

  • A challenge for four to six players.
  • Galactus = way cooler than in the Fantastic Four movie.
  • Get someone's parent to play Galactus for an awesome game!
  • Challenge Galactus with different superhero/villain combos!
  • Thumbs Down:

  • It takes a chunk of time and at least four players to play.
  • The Silver Surfer = slightly less cool than in the Fantastic Four movie.
  • Rating: 4
