Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is the biggest movie in the world right now. Marvel fans and moviegoers alike are all abuzz with excitement over the legendary outlaw Star-Lord and his dysfunctional found family.
That family earned some new members in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, but the Guardians of the Galaxy family of the Marvel Comics universe is even larger than that of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
With so many great Guardians to choose from how do you pick a favorite? It was difficult, but we did our best, and now we’re counting down the top ten members of the Guardians of the Galaxy ever.
After saving the universe from the threat of Thanos in The Infinity Gauntlet and then watching over the Infinity Gems as the leader of the Infinity Watch, Adam Warlock had settled into a well-earned retirement.
