For the past few chapters I have been really worried that Dragon Ball Super was not going to properly capitalise on the promise of this new storyline; with Goku and Vegeta joining the Galactic Patrol and such. Thankfully, the events of this chapter feel like a step back in the direction I initially wanted from this story line.
Those poor Namekians just can’t catch a break. No sooner than Moro, our planet consuming warlock, manages to escape Galactic Patrol custody, then he’s off to drink some slug people.
The chapter begins by giving us some more insight into Moro after Goku’s shocked reaction that ended the previous manga chapter. While he doesn’t necessarily have a powerful ki, Goku describes his energy as “a whole lot of people screaming in pain.” which is pretty grim.
We begin this part far in the past, with the Great Lord of Lords and South Supreme Kai battling “Planet Eater Moro”, a robed warlock that kind of looks like a Saiyan great ape with ram’s horns. This master of magic has destroyed over 300 planets and added their power to his own, becoming nigh unstoppable. A strong introduction to a different kind of villain for this franchise.
Ultimately, the Great Lord of Lords manages to sacrifice most of his own power in order to seal away Moro’s magic and allow the Galactic Patrol to seal him away for 10 million years. 5 million years later, when Majin Buu went onto absorb the Great Lord of Lords and take on his fat and “innocent” appearance, the seal on Moro’s magic was released.
