Guardians of the Galaxy

    (Marvel, 1990-1995, 2018)
™ and © 1990 Marvel Entertainment Group

It is the year 3007. Mankind has long since colonized the various planets of the solar system, and after generations, the colonists have evolved to match the conditions on each of these worlds.

After six months of solitary spaceflight, the Jovian astronaut, Charlie-27, finally arrived home. Unknown to him, the lizard-like Badoon race had conquered most of the solar system while he was alone in space. Narrowly escaping imminent death by the occupying forces of Jupiter, Charlie sought out others to aid him in his struggle. Soon, he joined forces with renegades from other conquered worlds: Martinex, a crystalline being from Pluto; Yondu, the last Centaurian; and an Earth astronaut named Vance Astro. Together, they became the Guardians of the Galaxy—and the last chance for Earth’s descendants to reclaim their homeworlds.
