Some of my all-time favorite covers, all by amazing Gabriele Dell-Otto.
All the covers are from the Annihilation arc, one of the precursors that brought about the formation of the Guardians of the Galaxy, and made me love Nova. Also never thought I would like Ronan the Accuser and the Super-Skrull, Kl’rt, until I read Annihilation!
we could have had it all
Think you can act like an Avenger for a day?
Nope. Like a Warrior.
Guardians of the Galaxy is Iron Man, Thor, and First Avenger altogether. Wait, that sounds a lot like Avengers. That’s because it is. Well, besides the superb soundtrack and surplus of aliens, but listen. Do both films not have a MacGuffin in the form of an Infinity Stone? Are Loki and Ronan not in cahoots with Thanos? Do the team members not get along at first, then decide to in order to save the world? Phil Coulson and Groot dies, but they aren’t really dead? The Nova Corps is basically SHIELD of space? Etc. However, does it really matter? Everyone knows Marvel is ridiculously successful; in less than a decade, it manages to crank out ten movies, AND has at least six more on the way. My least favorite is Dark World, but hey, it’s definitely not Wolverine Origins or Green Lantern. Again, does it matter? Absolutely not. The formula works.
