Origin

Tyros was a cruel dictator on the planet Birj, who used his mutant ability to control earth and stone to subjugate the citizenry.


Desperate for a new herald to find fertile planets, Galactus surmised that his former heralds failed him because of their ethics and compassion. For his new herald the Devourer of Worlds sought out a compassionless monster who would have no qualms in leading his master to inhabited planets, thus he transformed the tyrannical Tyros into Terrax.
