They faced the enigmatic Korvac, who fought Thor and later with aid from Captain America and his fellow Avengers, they fought Korvac in mainstream Earth. During the Phalanx Offensive against the Kree Empire, a group of misfit superheroes bands together to fight threats both large scale and average, cosmic or inter-dimensional.

Initially, space adventurer Star-Lord assembled Rocket Raccoon, Quasar, Adam Warlock, Gamora, Drax the Destroyer and Groot to the team. They battled against the Kree fanatic Ronan the Accuser, the mad titan Thanos, the cult of Universal Church of Truth, The Badoon, Emperor Vulcan, helped Nova fight the Annihilation Wave, The Phalanx army under Ultron's command and the villainous Magus occasionally.

Later they recruited many new members to their cause including Agent Venom, Thor's long lost sister Angela, Captain Marvel, Iron Man, Mantis, Moondragon and Adam Warlock to their ever expanding roster. They were also part of the trial that former X-Men member and former Phoenix host Jean Grey was facing by the Shi'ar Empire.
