Morg was imbued with the Power Cosmic by Galactus, as he did with all his heralds. This allowed Morg to fly through space and granted him exponentially enhanced strength, stamina and durability. It also allowed him to fire blasts of powerful energy channeled through his axe. The mystical pool Morg submerged himself in boosted each of these abilities further, making him more powerful than any other single herald, perhaps even more so than the Silver Surfer.
Morg served as a herald of Galactus after Galactus' previous herald, Nova, quit. Galactus searched for the most brutal, remorseless person he could find, and he found Morg; an executioner who had betrayed his own species by becoming the executioner for the species that had defeated them.
Morg gladly accepted the task of being Galactus' herald. Much like former herald Terrax, Morg also wielded a large axe.
Two former heralds, Silver Surfer and Firelord, learned about Morg after discovering that Nova had left Galactus. They expressed their concerns to Galactus about Morg's low morals but were dismissed. Morg battled and easily defeated them both.
Seeking reinforcements, Silver Surfer and Firelord recruited the rest of Galactus' former heralds: Nova, Terrax and Air-Walker, whom they had to unearth from his grave and reassemble. During this time, Morg discovered a powerful pool akin to the Fountain of Youth on a planet to which he had lead Galactus. The pool enhanced Morg's powers exponentially before he returned to his master and the planet was destroyed.
The assembled heralds confronted Morg together and were easily defeated. In the battle, Air-Walker was severely damaged again and Morg killed Nova by blasting her in the back when he was thought to have been beaten. Galactus was not pleased with this, so he removed the power cosmic that he had imbued in Morg, leaving him with only the power he'd gained from the pool he'd discovered. In his weakened state, Morg was killed by Terrax. To repay Galactus the inconvenience of losing his herald, both Firelord and Air Walker volunteered to stay with him.
Months later, Galactus resurrected Morg to give him a second chance. Morg attacked Firelord and the newly rebuilt Air-Walker, easily defeating them both and nearly destroying Air Walker again. Morg then went off in search of Terrax to exact vengeance upon him, but in their battle they were ambushed by robots working for the villain Tyrant and were taken captive.
Morg, along with fellow captives Silver Surfer, Terrax, Gladiator, Beta Ray Bill, Captain Marvel, Jack of Hearts and Ganymede fought back against Tyrant and were easily defeated until the appearance of Galactus disrupted the battle. Morg had been incapacitated in the battle, like all those involved, save for the Surfer. Tyrant stated that everyone there could go free, except for Morg, for no other reason than to spite the world devourer.
Tyrant imprisoned Morg and continued to siphon off his Power Cosmic and store it into his orbs. Eventually Morg escaped and went back to his master Galactus and served as herald again for a brief time. In a battle between Galactus and Tyrant, Morg found the Ultimate Nullifier and used it to melt most of Tyrant's body then betrayed both masters by cutting off his own arm while he tried to escape the final nullification blast (Tyrant's drone attached itself to the Nullifier and Morg's arm thus not allowing Morg to separate himself from the Nullifier). His escape failed and the Nullifier exploded, destroying Galactus' ship and all aboard. Morg and Tyrant have not appeared since and are presumed dead. Galactus was believed dead for a while but has resurfaced since, first reappearing to feed off of the energies of Hyperstorm.
Morg, however, is confirmed dead as Annihilus fails to retrieve the Power Cosmic from his corpse.
