Instead, Yondu, Martinex, and other weird aliens made up the Guardians of the Galaxy that fought for cosmic justice in the year Although set far into the future, the team ended up making several trips back in time to interact with more familiar heroes. To make matters more confusing, the original Guardians took their inspiration from the Avengers of the 20th century, with some direct analogues present on the roster.
