(Marvel Adventures Fantastic Four#26 (fb) - BTS) - Reed Richards, in his first encounter with the world-eater, devised various means in an effort to thwart Galactus' attempt to devour the Earth (i.e., Earth-20051), including teleportation projectors that he hoped he could use to transport the people of Earth into the Negative Zone. However, the early arrival of the Silver Surfer, Galactus' herald, meant that he had no time to distribute them around the Earth.
(Marvel Adventures Fantastic Four#26) - Despite being forced to abandon his mass evacuation plan, Reed Richards took a teleportation projector in his confrontation with Galactus at the North Pole. Reed directly challenged Galactus to swat him away. Galactus blasted at him with his eye beams, but this was instead absorbed into the teleportation projector that Richards wielded before him. Galactus' energy-altering blasts were then channeled into the Aurora Borealis and Earth's magnetosphere, transforming it into something that the world devourer could not consume and rendering Earth inedible. With Galactus' departure, the Fantastic Four then went back home with Richards still clasping the teleportation device.

Apart from the differing depictions of the Hulk across the various Marvel Adventures titles, the initial encounter between the Fantastic Four and Galactus is shown differently in MA Fantastic Four (teleportation projectors used to make the Earth inedible) and MA Avengers (Ultimate Nullifier used to scare Galactus away), signaling that these titles feature stories that are set on different Earths, despite being under the one Marvel Adventures banner.
