    Aside from Yondu, I am hoping to see the others appear in the movies post MCU Phase 3.

    Talking Happy 50th Anniversary 691 Guardians of the Galaxy!!! 1969-2019

    Marvel Super-Hoeroes #18 Jan 1969
    "Earth Shall Overcome!" Origin and first appearance of the Guardians of the Galaxy.
    Charlie-27 returns from a six-month mission to discover that his home planet of Jupiter has been completely enslaved by the evil Badoon.

    He knows that he wouldn't stand a chance against them on his own, so he teleports to other worlds to find help.
    First, he joins forces with Martinex on the planet Pluto.
    Then together they travel to planet Earth, where Vance Astro and the Centaurian Yondu have just escaped from Badoon forces themselves.
    When Vance and Yondu encounter Charlie-27 and Martinex, they briefly mistake them for more Badoon guards

    and a misunderstanding fight ensues. However, soon enough they realize that they are all fighting for the same side

    and a new super-team is born... the Guardians of the Galaxy!

    Script by Arnold Drake, pencils by Gene Colan, inks by Mike Esposito (as Mickey Demeo).

    Me too. Gerber's run from Marvel Presents is still a favorite of mine.

    I never understood how or why these great originals were replaced!?!

    Those other "guardians" could have come together as a team, but needed a totally different name, so that these heroes were not lost in limbo!
