two different teams.



The Guardians are active in the 31st century
in an alternate time-line of the Marvel Universe Earth-691.
The original members of the team include
Major Vance Astro, an astronaut from
the 20th century Earth who spends a thousand
years travelling to Alpha Centauri in suspended animation.
He is also the future alternate universe counterpart
of Vance Astrovik, the hero known as
Justice. Martinex T'Naga, a crystalline
being from Pluto; Captain Charlie-27, a soldier
from Jupiter; and Yondu Udonta, a blue-skinned
"noble savage" from Beta Centauri IV compose the original team.

Each is apparently the last of their kind and are
forced to unite as a team against the actions
of the Badoon, an alien race which attempts
to conquer Earth's solar system. During the course
of the war against the Badoon, the team
recruit two more members - Starhawk and
Nikki - and travel back in time and encounter
several of the heroes of 20th century Earth.



In the aftermath of the Phalanx invasion
of the Kree, Star-Lord decides to
form a team of interstellar heroes that will be
proactive in protecting the galaxy, rather than
reacting to crises as they happen. To this end,
he recruits Adam Warlock, Drax the Destroyer,
Gamora, Phyla-Vell (the new Quasar),
Rocket Raccoon, and Groot, with Mantis
as support staff. On the recommendation of their ally,
Nova, the group establishes a base of
operations on the space station Knowhere,
which possesses a teleportation system with
near-universal range. An intelligent, telepathic
dog named Cosmo is Knowhere's
chief of security and works closely with the
new team. After a confrontation with the
Universal Church of Truth, the team
meets a semi-amnesiac man who identifies
himself as Vance Astro - Major Victory
of the original Guardians of the Galaxy.
Astro's declaration inspires the as-yet-unnamed
team to adopt the "Guardians of the Galaxy"
name for their own.

Also on the hero's roster is Micronaut Bug,
Moondragon (Drax's daughter) and Jack Flag.

I love the second series. great characters.

I am hoping that they continue with some miniseries.

I rather enjoyed the team's comic in the '90s. Good cosmic stuff. Especially Surfer turning out the be the new Protector of the Universe.


Hmmm, I think I need to go dig these up and read them again...

During the Secret Empire storyline, the Guardians of the Galaxy assist Captain Marvel, the Ultimates, the Alpha Flight Space Program, Hyperion, and Quasar into fighting the Chitauri wave. Captain America, who was brainwashed into being a Hydra sleeper agent by Red Skull's clone using the powers of Kobik, activates the Planetary Defense Shield trapping them outside of Earth.
