DID YOU KNOW? None of the Guardians in the movie were on the original team. Sorry, but neither Star-Lord, Rocket Raccoon, Groot, Gamora nor Drax the Destroyer had anything to do with the team when the Guardians made their first appearance back in Marvel Super Heroes #18 in 1969. The original line-up consisted of a 20th century astronaut fortuitously named Vance Astro, a crystalline alien named Martinex, a human living on Jupiter named Charlie-27, and a blue alien named Yondu from Alpha Centauri. Yondu will be in the GotG movie, played by Michael Rooker as a sort of mentor to Peter Quill, a.k.a. Star-Lord.
