Marvel Comics’ Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning formed Guardians of the Galaxy from existing and previously unrelated characters created by a variety of writers and artists. 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. These Guardians first appeared in Annihilation: Conquest #6 (April 2008). This Guardians team is the second to operate under the name, following the original team created by Arnold Drake, Roy Thomas and Stan Lee in 1969.« Back to Glossary Index
