COMICS: Marvel Will Replace The GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY With An ASGARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Series

When their next comic book event wraps up, Marvel Comics' Guardians of the Galaxy will come to an end, but the Asgardians of the Galaxy will come together to become the fiercest protectors of the galaxy.

Marvel Comics has officially announced that when their upcoming event, Infinity Wars, comes to a close, the Guardians of the Galaxy as we know them will be no more. Whether this means members of the space-faring team will be killed off—or if they'll simply disband—is unclear, but Marvel is already set to replace the superhero team with a series from writer Cullen Bunn and artist Matteo Lolli.

The supergroup that will be filling the hole left by the Guardians will go by the name of the Asgardians of the Galaxy. Along with the announcement of the team’s name, Marvel also revealed that the roster of heavy-hitters will include "Angela, Valkyrie, Skurge the Executioner, Throg the frog Thor, the Destroyer, and Thunderstrike." However, there is one member of the Asgardians of the Galaxy that is being kept a secret, one who is said to be the person that brings the group together.

Likewise, the identity of the first significant villain the group will face is currently under wraps, but Bunn did say the big bad "has longstanding ties to cosmic Marvel tales," which gives fans something to speculate on.

Check out the cover art and official description for the latest Marvel book below:




Spinning out of the events of INFINITY WARS comes an epic space opera from the superstar team of Cullen Bunn and Matteo Lolli!
  • ANGELA, the not-so-beloved half-sister of Thor.
  • The hotheaded VALKYRIE – and the human who shares her form, Annabelle Riggs.
  • SKURGE the EXECUTIONER, freshly returned from Hel.
  • THROG, the mightiest frog of thunder.
  • Kevin Masterson, the boy who took his father’s mace to become the hero THUNDERSTRIKE.
  • And the DESTROYER, the Asgardian armor built to take down Celestials – its wielder unknown.
The Galaxy has new Guardians!
