The last trailer of GOTG vol2 gave away that Mantis will play a role in the movie, maybe even as a guardian herself. Since this mysterious character will take a appearance in the new movie and we always like to give you guy's a head's up, here's a little something about her origins.

Mantis is the daughter of Gustav Brandt and Lua Nguyen. When she was still young she was chosen to become an alien priest of Pama, a secret sect of the Kree. She gained the name Mantis by being far out the best material artist the priests had ever seen. Later the priests enhanced her, giving her mind control powers.

When she turned eighteen the priests wiped her memory and send her to earth. The priests believed that she could turn out to be the 'celestial madonna', a supreme being they were awaiting. In order to transform in this being she first had to experience a normal human life.
Didn't turn out as classy as you'd imagine since she became a prostitute in Vietnam. Didn't take her very long to find her way out of that business and later she joined the avengers.

During her time with the Avengers she fought bravely along them. She later helps the defenders and Doctor Strange to fight mighty foes like Loki and Dormammu.

What's more interesting however is that she fights alongside Drax the destroyer in the war against Thanos. This might happen in the future MCU films. An other fun fact is that she had a thing for the vision which caused a lot of heated arguments between her and Scarlett witch.
This is something Marvel could also easily use in the movies to come.

Later her story goes further as her being the celestial Madonna.
By reading this post you at least know how she started an what Marvel might use in the future movies. I for one am curious about her in GOTG vol2!
