INFILTRATION: BROLY IN NOOTRA

On experiencing the horrible pain of rejection, Broly and Galactus moved away from the premises of planet Nootra. The Saiyan was coming to the city with high hopes, expecting to be received as a Nootran. But his dreams were shattered when the Council of Heroes denied him. This response plunged Broly into dejection and though he reflected on the matter again and again, he found no way to make the heroes accept him. He thought of walking away from the galaxy and finding people who didn’t know his past. These would accept him like every man was accepted in the world.

Yet the consideration alone of this was too painful for he spent the past two years visualizing his stay in Nootra. The Legendary Super Saiyan Broly had a dream for the first time: living in Nootra. He wanted to know that friendship the people partook of, which he idealized whenever he contemplated the city. And the faces of the heroes were always on his mind; all of them mighty men of honour. These were the people he knew and the people who knew him. These people changed him and he wanted to belong to them. These were his people.
Broly was certain of this; Nootrans were peculiar because they were living a civilization that made them experience the essence of life. If any people were open to all men without discrimination, it was them. Yet though so open, they were prepared to forgo their fundamentals for the sake of one of theirs. Their response came to him as rejection yet that was the first moving moment he lived after his conversion. He, who was presently ardent to witness the beauty in human relationship, experienced it firsthand when Nootra stood as one to honour one of them. Though willing to accept everybody, they were not prepared to sacrifice their own for a mere ideology.

Could he hold anything against them? He nearly caused the loss of their city on three occasions due to his madness at the one he declared his enemy, though this one did nothing against him. Son Goku was the one who saved Nootra and it was right that his colleagues honoured him when it concerned that particular case that was his.

Still, Nootra was the place Broly wanted to live. Those were the people he had been cherishing since the day he became Galactus’ herald after the Battle of Agnam. He remembered one of them making a speech during that last battle. When their champion was down and could no longer retaliate, he believed in him and this act alone gave them the zeal, motivation and strategy needed to defeat him, culminating in their victory. That was the solution - to believe the impossible, to hope against hope and not to give up when all appeared lost. That was how Broly unconsciously used one of the virtues of Nootra to win his place among them. He had faith he was a Nootran and even before he lived in the city, he made Nootra home.

His determination opened his brain, enlarging his spectrum to find a solution to the dilemma. It didn’t take long for a bright idea to creep into his mind. He thought of entering the city stealthily, without NSF’s knowledge. When Galactus heard his plan, the former devourer of worlds knew the right person to help them do that successfully. Galactus enabled a secured line, which led the two fighters to the location of some dreaded villains of the galaxy. After his last invasion attempt of Cybertron, which turned out a failure, Megatron deserted his old lair and established his headquarters on an asteroid called Lebu. The Decepticons had settled there since then while waiting for an opportunity to conquer their home planet and take over the galaxy. Megatron heard that Galactus wanted to see him and he received him heartily.

Megatron: “Galactus my former ally, what brings you here? What have you done to your new herald? I’m surprised he hasn’t obliterated you yet.”
