  • Nova/Sam Alexander: Trained by the Guardians and eventually left to help Earth as part of S.H.I.E.L.D..


The team trained Nova, who then went to Earth.

When Michael Korvac began leading the Chitauri, the Guardians went to Earth to get Nova to help them. They teamed up with Nova's new team.

When their ship was damaged in a battle with Titus and the Chitauri, they landed on Earth for repairs. Their ship was repaired and they once again teamed up with Nova and his allies to stop Titus and the Chitauri. They arrested Titus though the Chitauri escaped.

Once, Galactus went to Earth. The Avengers managed to channel the Power Cosmic through Iron Man. He led the world eater to the planet of the D'Bari as it was going to explode. The Guardians confronted the Avengers thinking they would be killing the D'Bari. Star-Lord wondered why Earth didn't have a contingency plan for Galactus like most other planets. The Guardians then discovered the Avengers' plan and the exploding planet knocked out Galactus. The D'Bari then settled on another planet.

The Guardians began looking for the Infinity Gems and tracked one to Earth in the hands of the Avengers. They went to Earth but the Avengers refused to let them have it. The Guardians claimed that traveling to Asgard with it served as a beacon to others searching for it. The two teams began fighting. Black Widow had a vision that the Guardians would fall under the influence of an Infinity Gem. Eventually Falcon used teleportation disks to return them to their ship.

They eventually came across the group S.M.A.S.H.. The two fought Super-Skrull who was trying to create gamma-powered Skrulls.

They once again teamed up with the Avengers and S.M.A.S.H. to stop the Supreme Intelligence.

The Guardians eventually made their headquarters in Knowhere, working with Cosmo.


The members, design, and style of the team was largely influenced by the Guardians of the Galaxy film.
