Everything We Know About Guardians of the Galaxy Comic Relaunch.
(AfroGamers.com) In January 2019, Marvel will relaunch the Guardians of the Galaxy comic. In a teaser release, Marvel Entertainment confirmed that fans should expect a new lineup of the team. This new group of superheroes is going to be different from what we have seen in the past. Here we have collected all the pieces of information the company has revealed so far.
At New York Comic Con 2018, Marvel revealed that Cosmic Ghost Rider will be the first member of this group. Created by Shaw and Cates, Cosmic Ghost Rider is one of the most recent additions and was a part of the story in Thanos Wins. Being a new member of the Guardians of the Galaxy comic, he will likely play a major role in the series.
After this revelation, the studio later showed how the entire roster will look like. After Cosmic Ghost Rider, Marvel confirmed that characters like Nova, Beta Ray Bill, and Moondragon are all coming to the Guardians of the Galaxy January 2019 comic. The final lineup, as shared by Marvel, looks like a mixture of new and old characters. So now, we have Groot, Nova, Moondragon, Silver Surfer, Beta Ray Bill, Cosmic Ghost Rider, Adam Warlock, Phyla-Vell, Darkhawk, Guardian, and the star of Annihilation Star-Lord. According to Marvel, when the comic comes back in January, fans might not be able to recognize these heroes as the studio is planning to do something “insane”.
As a part of the company’s PR practice, Marvel Entertainment is talking about many things through cryptic images and texts on social media. About the story, Marvel’s artist Geoff Shaw said that they have some plans for the first arc, Endgame. It begins with Thano’s will and testament. His brother Eros finds an artifact which may “spell doom for the universe”. The relaunch of Guardians of the Galaxy comic features one of the most powerful groups of members in the comic’s history.
Marvel also confirmed that Thanos will be featured in the second issue which will be available in February 2019. A completely new avatar of the character will be featured in the story. Marvel has released solicit info with a cover designed by David Marquez. The variant cover art features Matteo Scalera’s work. The new group of members will likely face Thanos in an attempt to protect the universe.
With so many powerful heroes in a team, it looks like it’s going to be a tough ride for the villain. Marvel is known for incredible cosmic events and when the team of Guardians is so strong, the villain would have to be strong enough. As we know that Thanos will be there in some of the Guardians of the Galaxy issues, and as one of the strongest villains, he will certainly add more fun to the series.
There are many questions floating around in the heads. Which of the characters will make it to the official Guardians of the Galaxy team is still a mystery. The publisher has already revealed all the characters, but we still have to wait for the final six who will take the story forward. Marvel has confirmed that there will be some heartbreaking events, particularly the death of one of the Guardians before the comic is relaunched.
People are still guessing as to who will be the one who pays the price and won’t return to the next issue. Marvel is still holding many secrets and only time will tell which six heroes will be featured in the reboot. The future of the Guardians of the Galaxy comic is still a mystery but it’s exciting to see that the comic will feature cosmic superheroes. The story will be based on the aftermath of the series Infinity Wars. Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 has been delayed so it would be interesting to see if they’ll look at the new comics for some fresh ideas.
