The Guardians Of The Galaxy In The Wake Of War


Click Here: The Marvel NOW! Reading Order

Analysis: Ever since the announcements and speculation of the 2012 Avengers movie, The Guardians of the Galaxy have been gaining in popularity. These aren't the Guardians of the 70's, they've been rebuilt in the last decade with Starlord, Rocket Raccon, Drax, Groot, and Gamora. Also integral to the silver screen and the Marvel NOW! reformation is Iron Man's appearance in space. He's going to play a part of their adventures as you'll soon see.

Guardians of the Galaxy #0.1 (An origin issue of sorts, it delves 30 years back when J'Son of Spartax acccidentally lands on earth in a rural setting, meeting Meredith. She nurses him to health, but they also fall in love. Before he leaves, he gives her a special weapon designed only for him. The issue then moves to the younger years of Peter Quill, the child of Meredith and J'Son who never got to meet his father. His days growing up are tense, finally exploding on the night two brood soldiers kill his mother, invading his house. He manages to pull a shotgun and kill them first. In the tussle, he also finds the special gun his father left behind long ago. The issue ultimately closes with an adult Peter Quill, relaying his story to none other than Tony Stark, Iron Man, while on the Guardians ship. Iron Man then says "he's in" and prepares to join them in their fight.)
Guardians of the Galaxy #1 (It's clear Iron Man has met with Peter, so this occurs after Guardians of the Galaxy #0.1 and the recent Iron Man issues. Peter's dad, King of the Spartax Planetary system, warns him that Earth is now off limits to all others. The story then breaks to Iron Man, once out in space, who runs into a Badoon Phalanx and is targeted. While fighting, the Guardians come to his aid. But as ferocious as the Badoon are, they realize they are beaten and explode their ship. From the wreckage, they can see another ship heading towards earth. At the end, Peter suspects that his father knew this was going to happen; we see London under attack.)
Guardians of the Galaxy #2 (Continues immediately from the previous issue. Starlord and his team, with Iron Man joining them, go into action against the Badoon invasion of London. They attempt to radio for help, but all communications are blocked. One by one, each of the Badoon ships are taken out until the team stands alone with few wounds. Suddenly, Spartax forces appear and order Peter and the rest to drop their weapons for violating the Earth Directive of non-interaction with the planet. Throughout the issue, there is also a meeting of the galaxy's leader's, including the All-Mother of Asgardia, who warns the rest that they should not attack the planet because it is under her protection. The King of Spartax uses this threat as a means to set up the Directive.)
