What do a wandering outlaw, a blaster-toting raccoon, a humanoid tree, a green-skinned female assassin, and a vengeance-seeking superhuman warrior have in common? Not much.
Except that the fate of the galaxy rests in their hands… and paws… and, um, branches. When Peter Quill (he calls himself "Star-Lord") steals a mysterious orb, he becomes the center of a galaxy-wide manhunt. Joined by a group of like-minded (for now) misfits, Rocket Raccoon, Groot, Gamora, and Drax, Star-Lord sets out to put the fun in dysfunction and save the universe!
Oh, and they call themselves … wait for it … "The Guardians of the Galaxy!"
