Everyone loves comic book trivia, but with 75 years of superhero comics behind us right now, there's always some new obscure fact to learn. That's why ComicsAlliance is going deep into the minutiae of your favorite characters in our new video series. You think you know comics? Well here's a few things you might not know!

This week, we're going deep with the biggest movie stars of the summer, the Guardians of the Galaxy! Find out about their obscure origins as a time-tossed team battling the galactic scourge of the Badoon, all the way up to their rebirth as one of the decade's most prominent franchises!

Show Notes:

  • A quick correction to something I got wrong in the video: While Star-Lord, Drax and a few other characters made their return in Annihilation battling against Annihilus, the new team was actually formed during the events of that story's sequel, Annihilation: Conquest. Even so, Annihilation is well worth reading, especially if you want more from Star-Lord and Ronan the Accuser.
