Marvel has been teasing a new line-up for the Guardians of the Galaxy, set to debut in April with issue #14 (which is also issue #175 due to Marvel Math). The team features some familiar faces like Star-Lord, Groot, and Nova, joined by new ones like Emperor Hulkling and Wiccan. The full line-up has been revealed in a triptych from artist Brett Booth and there’s one member in particular that’s pretty surprising.
Doctor Friggin’ Doom?! Whaaattt??! That’s right, folks. Victor Von Doom is joining the Guardians of the Galaxy alongside the original Quasar, Wendell Vaughn. What could possibly get Doctor Doom to join this team out in space? What do writer Al Ewing and artist Juan Frigeri have in store for us?
“One of these things is not like the others, one of these things just doesn’t belong. What’s Doctor Doom doing here… and why? There’s only one way to find out,” Ewing teased.
Guardians of the Galaxy #14 is set for release on April 14th, 2021.
