Meet the Guardians of the Galaxy…from the 31st century! Yondu, Charlie-27, Martinex, Starhawk and Aleta, Vance Astro and Nikki to name a few – having united to defeat the reptilian Badoon, these accidental heroes found themselves the peacekeepers of a torn universe. Many are the last of their alien race.
The Guardians’ first appearance! Major Vance Astrovik was an eager Air Force recruit who agreed to an experimental ‘space sleep’ for 1,000 years. But when Astrovik awoke from suspended animation, he found his destination colonized by the Badoon! As Major Victory, he is the leader of the Guardians.
Yondu Udonta of Centauri IV is an active resister of the Badoon. Like all Centaurians, Yondu is an empath with the spirit of a shaman and warrior. When hunting, he relies on his yaka arrows, controlled by the pitch and frequency of his whistles.
Martinex T'Naga is a crystalline being from Pluto and the last of his species. Like other Pluvians, his exterior has adapted to withstand extreme temperatures. After serving alongside Major Victory, T’Naga assembled his own Guardians – several of whose members are future counterparts of Earth’s heroes.
Charlie-27 of Jupiter was modified at birth to be 11 times the mass and three times the gravity of Earth. Like Martinex, he is the last of his humanoid race. Here, ‘Chunky’ leads the charge against Rancor, an unhinged descendant of Wolverine.
Starhawk & Aleta
When visiting the ‘Forbidden City’, Stakar Ogord became a living vessel of a Hawk-God...after merging bodies with Aleta! Although estranged as husband and wife, Starhawk and Aleta are symbiotically linked. Here, Aleta battles Stakar to be the sole possessor of the Starhawk!
Mercurial-minded Nicholette Gold took her hatred for the Badoon and paid it forward as a Guardian. A native of Mercury, Nikki’s skin retains heat and is flame resistant – physical contact with others is difficult, although she’s had an on-off fling with Charlie-27.
By the 30th century, most of the Inhumans were slaves to a larger empire. The Inhuman Talon escaped servitude through an apprenticeship with Krugarr, Sorcerer Supreme of the 31st century.
A later addition to the team, the shapeshifting Replica initially hid her Skrull heritage from teammates. With the reveal of her origin, Replica embraced her skillset, joining Martinex’s team as a Galactic Guardian.
After serving up stings alongside the Avengers, a time-tossed Rita DeMara hitches a ride to the 31st century – and impresses the Guardians enough to become one of their own!
