Marvel just announced a new team member will join the Guardians of the Galaxy comics! We don’t know which team member it is yet. However, ComicsVerse will be the first to let you know the moment we find out. That said, we do have a little information to go on so far!


The Guardians of the Galaxy will soon have their Legacy arc from Marvel. The arc, called THE INFINITY QUEST, will team up Guardians of the Galaxy with the Nova Corps! In addition, one ex-Avenger will join their ranks in an attempt to keep the whole universe safe.

As previously mentioned, we have no idea who might join the Guardians of the Galaxy. Marvel did, however, provide some hints as to who it might be. Their press release says, “Who exactly is this Avenger? One of the five Marvel superstars on this cover should give you a hint…” So, let’s take a look at who is on the cover of GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #12!

Alright, let’s break down who appears on the cover! On top, we see Man-Thing. Below him, we see Deadpool, Doctor Strange, Ant-Man, and X-Men’s Cable. It appears on the Guardians of the Galaxy side of things, Star-Lord, Rocket Raccoon, Gamora, and Baby Groot will make up the team.

Personally, I’m not 100% sure which ex-Avenger might get added to the roster. Doctor Strange is a well-known ex-Avenger, but Deadpool is so popular. Cable and Ant-Man would fit right in and so would Man-Thing. Really, it’s anyone’s guess!
