Guardians of the Galaxy 2 (unreleased)
I look around, do you know what I see? Losers! I mean like folks who have lost stuff. And we have, man, we have, all of us. Our homes. Families. Normal lives. Normally life takes more than it gives, but right now it's giving us something, it's giving us a chance.
The Guardians of the Galaxy is a band of intergalactic outlaws. The team was able to save all of Xandar from obliteration by Ronan the Accuser. Though they remain outside the law, they act when necessary to protect the galaxy from internal or external threats.
When Peter Quill known as Star-Lord stole the Orb, Ronan's Kree Forces hunted for the Ravager. He used the Milano to escape. Yondu Udonta and the Ravagers went to Morag after the Orb but discovered Quill's treachery and set a bounty on him.
Elsewhere in the galaxy, Thanos The Mad Titan, his lieutenant The Other, and his daughter Nebula met with Ronan the Accuser. Ronan argued with the Other about the Orb, then killed him with his hammer and sent Gamora to retrieve it.
On Xandar, Quill tried to sell the Orb to a Xandarian Barterer but he refused after hearing of Ronan. Gamora then launched a sneak attack on Quill but was intercepted by bounty hunters Rocket Raccoon and Groot. The Nova Corps then arrested them.
The group is sentenced to Kyln Prison Facility where Gamora is endangered by inmates whose families are victims of Ronan. As they try to kill Gamora, Drax the Destroyer stops them, scaring the other prisoners away. Drax desired to kill Gamora himself for the death of his family. Quill convinces Drax that by letting Gamora live he will get the chance to exact his vengeance on Ronan as Gamora reveals she betrayed him.
Rocket plots an escape plan, but Groot initiates it earlier than planned. They are forced to use a makeshift plan to escape from the Kyln with the Orb. They managed to do so succesfully.
After their escape, Gamora realizes that the Collector knows something about the Orb. So the group travels to Knowhere, a city inside the severed head of a Celestial. In the city, the Collector says the Orb is one of the Infinity Stones, capable of destroying worlds. The Collector's distraught servant unleashes a blast from the Orb destroying the Collector's Museum. Ronan's forces invade Knowhere thanks to Drax sending a message challenging Ronan. Nebula goes after Gamora escaping in an industrial pod with the orb. Rocket and Star-Lord give chase but Gamora is blown into space and loses the orb to Nebula. Quill sends his coordinates to Yondu and gives Gamora his helmet until they are saved by the Ravagers.
You said it yourself, bitch. We're the Guardians of the Galaxy.
The Ravagers are outnumbered by the Kree until the Nova Corps helps to build a force field to contain the Dark Aster. Quill, Gamora, Drax, and Groot infiltrate the Dark Aster and fight through the Kree soldiers, killing Korath in the process. Nebula duels Gamora but is thrown off the ship; she hijacks a Ravanger's ship and escapes. The group arrives and attacks Ronan with the Hadron Enforcer; he is unphased however and easily overpowers the group until Rocket crashes into the ship. As the ship crash lands, Groot sacrifices himself to shield the team.
Ronan rises and mocks them calling them failed guardians. Rocket rebuilds the cannon while Quill distracts Ronan allowing Rocket and Drax to destroy the hammer. Quill grabs the Orb causing a cosmic storm. Before its power can kill him the others join hands with him allowing Quill to withstand its power and blast Ronan killing him and declaring themselves "Guardians of the Galaxy".
Quill gives Yondu a fake orb container and gives the real one to the Nova Corps. With their slates cleaned, Nova Corps gives them a rebuilt Milano and tells Quill he is only half-human and his other ethnicity is currently unknown. A twig retrieved by Rocket begins to grow into a new Groot and the Guardians leave Xandar.
|Peter Quill||Peter Quill is a half-human who was kidnapped from Earth by the Ravagers during the 1980s at the age of eight. After living in space for nearly thirty years, Quill became wrapped up in an intergalactic conspiracy that introduced him to the Guardians, with him becoming their leader. He is the pilot of the Milano.|
|Gamora||Gamora is the only known survivor of the Zehoberei race, adopted by Thanos, the galactic warlord most responsible for the War for Earth. Renowned as the galaxy's deadliest assassin, Gamora had a falling out with her father that caused her to rebel against him, thereby making her an enemy of Thanos and his associates. Her fugitive status led to her becoming a member of the Guardians. She is known as the "Deadliest Woman in the Galaxy".|
|Drax the Destroyer||The being known as Drax is an enigma, with his true origin unknown. He is driven only by a burning desire to obtain vengeance against Ronan of the Kree, who killed Drax's wife and daughter. Drax's search for revenge resulted in him joining the Guardians.|
|Rocket Raccoon||Rocket Raccoon is a creature resembling a raccoon that was genetically modified by an alien race, giving him human level intelligence. However, years of repetitive genetic rewrite and abuse resulted in Rocket developing a cynical and vain personality, making him an ideal mercenary and teammate to the other Guardians.|
|Groot||Groot is a sentient tree-like individual and accomplice of Rocket Raccoon. Along with Rocket, Star-Lord, Gamora, and Drax, he formed the Guardians of the Galaxy. Groot's physiology renders the limits of his speech to the phrase, "I am Groot.", and "We are Groot.".|
