As Star-Lord seeks some answers from Thanos about what the hell is happening with Earth, Iron Man (dressed in Quill’s old, and far superior, armor) and the rest of the Guardians try to help Gammora who has bitten off more than she can chew with the mysterious Angela.
Two issues in, both of which feature Angela on the cover, we’re still no closer to discovering who exactly this character is or how powerful this version of Neil Gaiman‘s Spawn character might be within the confines of the Marvel Universe. Obviously she can stand up to Gamora, but it an issue where Star-Lord survives and off-panel one-on-one fight with Thanos that’s not all that impressive.
The inclusion of The Watcher, who seems legitimately dismayed at the arrival of Angela, helps lend some weight to a character who really has done much of anything so far. In much the same way, Quill’s opening scene with Thanos sets the stage for just how much danger the Earth now finds itself. Worth a look.
