Guardians of the Galaxy – Wanted | Comics

When the last of the Kree Accuser Corps, Hala showed up on Spartax to blame Emperor Quill for the destruction of her homeworld and laid waste to the entire planet, Spartax government officials deemed Peter Quill guilty and overthrown him. Even though it wasn't his fault in any way but still, he was in charge of the planet when it happened and that made him a fugitive of Spartax. While other Guardians of the Galaxy members were split in small groups on separate missions, Kitty Pryde and Peter Quill are currently on Xalda-Volta, a Badoon prison-planet.

Kitty and Peter are there for an extraction mission but Peter still couldn't let go of the fact that he lost an entire planet, his friends and Kitty too. In between hiding from Badoon soldiers and out-flanking them, Kitty unsuccessfully tries to keep Quill's mind on track and they jump into quickly take down a few Badoon soldiers on patrol and then Star-Lord got knocked down by a bigger one. Kitty managed to move him out but more troops were on their tail and while make another run for it, they finally discovered that Xalda-Volta is actually a concentration camp for numerous alien races.

Seeing all the deprived alien prisoners locked up there reminded Kitty Pryde of how her own Mutant race was always trampled by others and in a fit of rage, she furiously charges at them with Star-Lord's Element Gun and inflicts heavy damage. She then phase-shifts through a few of their ships to make them crush while Quill frees as much prisoners as possible until he got knocked out by another big one. He woke up in the middle of an arena, sentenced to death while surrounded by Monsters of Badoon on planet Moord; the homeworld of the Brotherhood of Badoon.

Captured by Badoon soldiers, Rocket Raccoon was stalling a bunch of Badoons with facts about his prisoner rights, leading them to a spot while The Thing drops on them from orbit, decimating almost all of them at once. After taking down a big-one like a true space-barbarian, Thing and Rocket proceeds to evacuate all the prisoners. Impressed by his unmatched bravery and their attempt to rescue all these alien prisoners Badoon, a female Garonthian approaches him finding herself attracted to Ben. Though, interrupted by more soldiers, Ben and Rocket eventually rescues everyone from the prison planet.

Groot and Venom finds themselves among a group of Super-Skrull who are kept here as prisoners, stripped off their shape-shifting ability. Meanwhile, Drax the Destroyer and Gamora sneaks into Imperial Warden's tower but Gamora got caught and then she unleashes whatever remaining power of The Black Vortex within her one more time to rescue her friend and fellow Guardians of the Galaxy member Angela. When they are all set to go, they have to save Peter Quill from being executed on Planet Moord and then take out Brotherhood of the Badoon for good.

Guardians of the Galaxy – Wanted (Hardcover)

The second storyline from Marvel Comics' fourth monthly ongoing volume of Guardians of the Galaxy, "Wanted" is comprised of four individual adventures by teamed-up Guardians, leading to one big-finale. Regular writer of the series, Brian Michael Bendis (Daredevil – End of Days, Daredevil – Ninja) and his new collaborating artist Valerio Schiti (Guardians of the Galaxy – Civil War II, New Avengers – A Perfect World) were on the creative wheels, as Arthur Adams (Gen¹³/Generation X, Longshot) was doing covers for all the issues involved. Bendis have started plotting a series of inter-connected stories from "Emperor Quill" and will see an end by the end of the monthly series, drawing a much deserved conclusion.

Assault on Xalda-Volta

As a new line-up for the team is settled, lot of story build-up process is going on behind the scene and probably leading to a major event. The mission that Kitty Pryde and Peter Quill led eventually freed countless members of different alien races like Brood, Kymellian, Shi'ar and Skrulls. Things are changing as The Badoons are up to a major galactic power play and they are seemingly interested in knowing the current whereabouts of Thanos. The group heads to Earth as Captain Marvel/Carol Danvers asks for their assistance and so, the next story will tie-in with Civil War II crossover event.

Guardians of the Galaxy – Angela | Comics

Shortly after they have made a quick work of their captors, Iron Man and the Guardians of the Galaxy escaped Spartoi custody. To celebrate their freedom, they made a stop to bar of an unnamed planet and there, Gamora eventually decided to hook up with Tony Stark at one point after flirting with him for a brief time. As Star-Lord, Drax the Destroyer, Rocket Raccoon and Groot were enjoying themselves, Peter notices some Spartax soldiers walking in and advice the gang to lay low but they inadvertently gets noticed and Drax breaks a fight in with the royal guards.

Gamora goes out telling Stark about going back to the bar but as she went outside, a bounty hunter named Maxilin the Accuser shot her from behind. As she is caught off guard, a wounded Gamora barely crawls to a side and the bounty hunter came chasing the daughter of Thanos for a handsome amount of prize on her head. She demands to know who put the bounty on her and keeps fighting back each time Maxilin puts her down. Finally, Rocket Raccoon arrives with the rest of the gang and saved her in time by blasting a hole into the attacker's chest.

Tony decides to check on Earth and he does so by contacting Pepper Potts with a device Rocket gave him. He asks her to send some Avengers if possible and he will be back once he makes sure Earth is out of danger from invasion. Meanwhile, in an attempt to save Earth recently, multiple time-travels have caused rips in space-time continuum and a divine being from Heavens named Angela enters our universe. To seek the answer for who brought her here, Angela is headed towards Earth.

Rocket and Tony were talking about Gamora, when she came looking for Quill and upon learning Peter is not on board, points out that he brought the entire Spartax fleet on their tail and leaving is not cool. On Rigel-7, while running from Spartax royal guards Peter seeks out Mantis to get a hold of his thoughts and revealed a stream of thoughts as well as earning a brief visit from The Mad Titan. On board the Guardians' ship, Rocket picks up signal for something headed towards Earth and turns out its Angela.

Since Tony cannot suit up right now as it is disassembled and Quill is currently absent on scene, Gamora engages her on mid-flight and then a fierce battle ensues among the two femme fatales, who are equally formidable and ruthless. On the surface of Moon, these two warrior charges at each other with all they've got. Even Uatu the Watcher stops by to point out Angela should not be here and her presence means greater catastrophes to come. He witnesses this epic fight and sees Angela taking a hit from Gamora before being overpowered by her.

Peter came back from his visit from Thanos just in time as Rocket Raccoon and Groot suited up to stop Angela. It took the joint effort of the whole team just to slow her down and Star-Lord's surprise attack finally subdued her. Upon hearing her story, they decided to let her go and keep an eye on her. In the meantime, Thanos launches invasion on Earth and the Guardians rushed to stop him, aided by Angela. When the crisis is over, she and Gamora teams up on Planet Moord to take on a Badoon outpost.

The story introduces renowned writer Neil Gaiman (Death – The High Cost of Living, Death – The Time of Your Life)'s creation Angela to the mainstream Marvel Comics through a rip in the fabric of time and reality caused by Wolverine during "Age of Ultron". Then "Infinity" crossover event took place where Thanos shook the entire Marvel Universe once again and the Guardians were a part of it.

Rumble on The Moon

Starting to find a new direction for the team, Guardians of the Galaxy returns after a while in "Cosmic Avengers" arc and now has ascended to the storyline "Angela". The story collects issue #04-10 from the third ongoing volume of Guardians of the Galaxy and two of the issues from the story have served as tie-in for the event. Although, the character of Angela originated from a different reality of a diverse publisher, she is now part of Marvel Universe and her grand-entry in this story gives us a good hint that she is going to turn tides for good. The course of the team will take a new turn in the upcoming storyline "Guardians Disassembled" as they will include a brand-new member to their fold.

Guardians of the Galaxy – Cosmic Avengers | Comics

Before Peter Quill became the legendary outlaw of the galaxy known as Star-Lord, he was a little boy from Earth raised by his single mother Meredith Quill. Thirty years ago, before the boy was born, a runaway spaceship crashed onto the front door of Meredith, who then dragged out and rescued the passenger. Little did she know about him that the man is an alien named J'son, who is from the planet Spartax. While staying there for fixing his ship, they both fall in love and she gave birth to Peter once J'son was gone.

Meredith raised the boy on her own but not having a father around made the child grow up to be angry all the time and picking up fights with school bullies. One evening, two Badoon soldiers showed up on their doorstep and killed her but before they could end the "Spartoi bloodline" by killing the boy, Peter shot them both with a shotgun. Before leaving, he finds the Element Gun J'son gave to Meredith as a parting gift and then the Badoon ship blew up the house. Becasue, he couldn't stop the Badoon or Spartax from fighting each other, he wants to make sure that they could never lay their hands on Earth.

Guardians of the Galaxy – Cosmic Avengers | Comics

With Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax the Destroyer, Rocket Raccoon and Groot already in the team, the Guardians have a brand-new member in their fold; the Invincible Iron Man of The Avengers. Tony was only interested in knowing Quill's standpoint on the Badoons invading Earth and after hearing his story, he is all in. Peter Quill was then hanging out on a galactic bar and trying to hit on a Kree girl when his father, J'son of Spartax came in guarded by Spartoi Royal Guards to meet him so that he could tell him in person to stay out of Earth.

It appears that J'son is a member of Galactic Council; an inter-galactic secret counsel comprised of him along with Annihilus, Majestor Kallark/Gladiator of Shi'ar Empire, Queen of the Brood and Supreme Intelligence of Kree. Together the Council has came to the decision to leave Earth be so that it gets a chance to be a part of galactic civilization. As their meeting was getting to a heated argument, Gamora came crushing down the royal guards to rescue Quill, thinking he is in trouble. In space, Iron Man encounters a Badoon warship and prepares to face it but the Guardians of the Galaxy arrive.

They successfully dealt with them but then the remaining Badoon warship enters Earth's atmosphere and starts wrecking havoc in London. Though they couldn't call Fantastic Four, The Avengers, The Defenders, Power Pack or X-Men, Quill and his gang took out the Badoon armada by themselves. The whole gang is then arrested by Spartax soldiers for violating "Spartax Earth Directive" by setting foot on Earth. Before they know a thing, the Guardians are captured and sent to the prison planet after stripping them all off their weapons.

Starting off the third monthly ongoing series with writer Brian Michael Bendis (Avengers Disassembled, Civil War II) and artist Steve McNiven (Civil War, Death of Wolverine), "Cosmic Avengers" is a story-arc of Guardians of the Galaxy that creates a new path for the favorite cosmic outlaws of Marvel and leads them to a new path. The story came out in 2014 and comprises of issues #01-03 from Guardians of the Galaxy third monthly series including issue #0.1 and Guardians of the Galaxy: Tomorrow 's Avengers one-shot. We can see how Marvel is trying to re-introduce the cosmic outlaws to readers when the live-action Guardians of the Galaxy movie is awaiting release in a few months.

The story gives a never-before seen peak at Star-Lord's not so well-known origin, will also lead to the introduction of a major character in the near future and a lots of adventures that is full of conflict. Plus, Tony Stark hanging out with a group of misfit heroes on space who are not his regular buddies from Avengers was sort of an amusement. Seems like Iron Man fits just fine with the team as any other member they have ever taken in. Since the heroes already have a rocky-start with Badoons, the stakes are going to be high from this point and many new developments will take place on the upcoming arc "Angela".

From then, he grew a deep hatred for the Badoons and was determined to leave Earth. He took a job at NASA, stole a Kree ship and left Earth only to be captured by Yondu and his Ravagers. He would eventually know about his father and meet him but they soon parted away. He'd meet a former herald of Galactus, Fallen One, would team up with Gladiator of Shi'ar Empire and Thanos against The Maker.

During "Annihilation War", he assembled Drax, Gamora, Nova, Praxagora, Ronan and Talos to form United Front against Annihilus. When Ultron led the Phalanx Invasion on Kree, Peter teamed up with Bug, Captain Universe, Deathcry, Groot, Mantis and Rocket Raccoon to repeal the attack. After the battle, he re-formed Guardians of the Galaxy in Knowhere with his allies as well as Adam Warlock and Phyla-Vell.

He and his friends intervene to stop the War of Kings, met Kang the Conqueror, fought Magus and the Universal Church of Truth with a Cosmic Cube. Peter and the Guardians, along with Nova and Thanos went to the Cancerverse to fight Mar-Vel. Peter fell for X-Men' Kitty Pryde, recruited Angela and Venom as the Guardians before finally becoming Emperor Quill.

Since the beginning of the creation of the character by the creative team of Steve Englehart (Conan the Barbarian, Tarzan) and Steve Gan (Defenders, Hero for Hire) in 1976, debuting on the pages of in Marvel Preview #4, Star-Lord has remained one of the witty and humorous protagonists of Marvel Comics. Though he used to go solo in the early era, he became quite a bi-shot over the years after playing a pivotal role in "Annihilation" and "Annihilation – Conquest".

Star-Lord was also very instrumental in the second formation of Guardians of the Galaxy as well as events like Thanos Imperative, Black Vortex and Secret Wars.
