Guardians of the Galaxy #6 (Vol. 2)

GotG1

“Death” by Dan Abnett & Andy Lanning, and Paul Pelletier

Drax activated the synapse mines, and killed everyone else on board Knowhere. As it turns out, though, it was only temporary. Soon, Quasar wakes up, and is just a little peeved about being killed.

As everyone else wakes up, they are suddenly thrust back into their respective predicaments.

GotG3 GotG4

Drax and Quasar race to the skrull’s location where a can of whoop-ass is opened on Adam Warlock and Cosmo, believed to be skrull infiltrators. However, things are not as they seem.

Right on cue, the administrative council barges in guns-a-blazin’ and another battle breaks out before Cosmo unleashes yet another telekinetic blast. In the aftermath, Peter Quill continues to clash with the council.

With that settled, Quill returns to the Guardians’ quarters where Drax has spilled the beans to everyone else about Quill’s deception and they are far from happy about it.

And just like that, when the universe needs them the most, the Guardians are no more. Or are they? How will Star-Lord convince them all to come back? And what will happen in the interim?

What I’ve enjoyed most about this series so far is the unclear division between good and bad. The heroes are not all that good, particularly their leader, and the bad guys are really bad, unless they happen to be peaceful skrulls (Irony!). Pretty much everyone is flawed, even if they’re likable. But there’s something about each of the Guardians’ individual desire to to good that draws me in, even if their methods aren’t the most ethical.

With the Secret Invasion over, there’s still the Universal Church of Truth to deal with, as well as Starhawk and whatever effect he/she/it is going to have on the universe. Whatever it is, it probably won’t be good. I guess we’ll find out in issue 7.
