Guardians of the Galaxy 013

Recommended. \(yes\)

This was going along so nicely with the first missions of the All-New, All-Same Guardians of the Galaxy who were formally annointed last issue. That is, until the last page's guffawful reveal to the evil mastermind behind it all. Cry Gimmick!? Next issue's cover has me cringing a bit too. Still, the title is moving along nicely, so hopefully Big Bad's motives/endgame prove copacetic.

Meanwhile, readers learn the fate of Wendell Vaughn and Avril Kincaid. He's Quasar. And she is Quasar! Yep, they're connected ala Mar-Vell/Rick-Jones spatial displacing Nega-Bands dynamic they shared for yeeears. Now, Quasar, Nova(Rider), Noh-Varr("Marvel Boy" again), Moondragon and some may argue Rocket(No Road Home) are all ex-Avengers (Adjacent) on the GotG Team instead. FYI, ex-Avengers Hulkling and Wiccan appear/fight in this ish too.

And the art is as fantastic as last ish.

It was interesting to see the Return of The Progenitors https://marvel.fandom.com/wiki/Progenitors introduced back in the forgotten Inhumans mini: "ROYALS". They trashed Throneworld II with such ease that Earth's Mightiest Heroes might be hard pressed to take on these Worldbreakers. Curiouly, of note, Iron Man specifically was intergalactically notified of the attack on the Kree/Skrull in a cameo panel- for all the good it did anyone involved.

Thankfully Teddy's "Sword of Space" gets named: EKZ'EL-ZORR. Smileworthy homage to Stan Lee's catch phrase! \:\) Now, we just have to wait for a name for Peter Quill's... son! Star-Lord, makes the shocking revelation that he had a son while trapped in another dimension! On top of it all, the Ancient Fire Cult of the Skrulls resurface. Secret Invasion II, anyone?
