    Well its not like Young Guardians were good guys either, they wanted to replace Hal after all. Which happened anyway, so maybe they were right?

    But if they're good we can't call them the Bloompa Loompas without being assholes and I can't not use that name!

    I'm tired of evil space chancellors too, but it is what it is. We needed a reason he'd be abandoned by everyone and, well, it works.
    May we never forget:

    I don't need the Guardians to be "good", I want them to be immortal beings whose motivations are unknowable, which I get is not something that works very well for most stories that are basically just Earth stuff...but in space.

    Yeah, that’s my main issue. It felt too much like plot mechanics for my tastes. It wasn’t a deal breaker or anything, but I would have preferred a more interesting solution than more space politics.
