Origin

When Annihilus, the ruler of the Negative Zone, saw the expansion of the positive matter universe into his own as an invasion, he struck back - eradicating the intergalactic Nova Corps and brining the Kree, Skrull and Xandar Empires to their knees.


In the wake of the stalemate with the Annihilation Wave, a new threat surfaced. The techno-organic race known as the Phalanx, under the command of the sentient robot Ultron, sealed off and took control of the Kree Empire - converting the inhabitants into mindless drones.


To counter the threat of the Phalanx, Kree freedom fighters recruited an unusual group of heroes lead by Star-Lord to infiltrate the Phalanx base on the Kree imperial planet Hala - and destroy the invaders from within.


After Ultron was defeated the band of heroes were united by Star-Lord to serve and protect as the Guardians of the Galaxy.
