The original Guardians of the Galaxy

We all know Starlord and his crew from the MCU adaption of guardians of the galaxy. A lot of people (including myself) had some serious doubts about how this would turn out. It's a very different storyline than the other superhero movies and the whole thing leans more in the sci-fi genre than the superhero genre.
Disney did their magic and as usual they nailed it! I enjoyed the movie a lot and so did most people according to it's 8.1 rating on IMDb.

One of the things I did remember from the time before the movie came out was that I tried to do some research on the storyline but found a complete different story with all different characters. I found out there were other guardians of the galaxy and Starlord's crew is only one of the most resent ones.
In this post i'll be talking about the original guardians.

The original members were Major Victory (Major Vance Astro), an astronaut form the 20th century Earth. Martinex T'Naga (a Crystalline being from Pluto), Captain Charlie-27 (a soldier from Jupiter) and Yondu Udonta (a blue skinned 'noble savage' -rings a bell?-). Each of the members, apart from Major Victory are the last of their kind. They're forced to unite together to fight off the evil forces of the Badoom, an evil alien race that tries to conquer earth's solar system.

Later on during their war against the Badoom new members join in (Starhawk and Aleta). They even meet some of our well known heroes, like the thing and Captain America. When they defeat the Badoom they soon find themselves facing a new enemy. Korvac is much harder to beat but with the help of Thor and the other avengers they again secure victory.

I like the modern guardians, as I said before the movie was great! I'm not sure why they didn't use the original team but I can imagine they had their reasons. At least now you know who the first guardians were!
