What Happened:

The (still as of yet untitled) Guardians of the Galaxy are sent to investigate a time rip by their talking dog astronaut friend Cosmo. Comic books! Since the damage done to the galaxy after the annihilation wave (annihilation) this has been happening more and more. Once there, they find themselves on a block of frozen time. Sure!

Quasar (Phyla-Vell) uses her powers to melt some time. (Sidenote: pocketing “Melt Some Time” for a future dime-store Sci-Fi novel title.) Within the melted time, they find the gate to the Avengers Mansion. That’s mysterious! Then they find another mysterious thing: a monster.

The monster from another dimension breaks out of the time-ice and attacks them. Quasar has a bit of a freakout when the giant tentacles come for her as any sane person who’s been to the wrong websites would. She accidentally destabilizes the time-ice asteroid with a blast from her quantum bands. The team needs to get off that thing quick!

Major Victory (Vance Astrovik) is also unfrozen from the block of ice and with Captain America’s shield helps them fight the monster before fainting. Way to uphold a hero’s legacy, dude.

Walking deus ex machina Adam Warlock, uses a spell to blow up the ice while the rest of the team leave.

Back at the Guardian’s home Knowhere, Quasar tries to bound with her dead girlfriends sort of dad Drax the Destroyer using the mystic powers of macaroni and cheese. It kind of works when Drax agrees to eat the food. Baby steps!

Guardians of the Galaxy support member and resident nutcase Mantis studies Major Victory, who has traveled to this time for an important reason but he can’t remember what it is. Ty. Pi. Cal.

Rocket Raccoon hears Vance call his own team “The Guardians of the Galaxy” and decides he likes that name enough to steal it.

Gamora finds another tear in space and they run after to investigate only to be attacked by the universal church of truth. Blindsided. Like by a bake sale after the grocery store checkout. All churches are the same!

What I Learned From This Comic:

You can make macaroni and cheese in space so any astronaut who eats paste from a tube is a fool.
