When the universe is in danger from forces that are out of the control of the Avengers, S.H.I.E.L.D. and X-Men, there’s only one group that can be of any assistance: The Guardians of the Galaxy. The galaxy’s greatest collaboration team of superheroes might just be the most motley crew of all, but they’re constantly on alert and always have good intentions. No matter how many super suits show up when it’s time to fight the Infinity War or or some intergalactic goddess like Ayesha, there’s always the dependable Peter Quill, or Star Lord, to hold the team together.

Costume SuperCenter wanted to celebrate the original five Guardians by putting together some fun facts about them. These five are the the five who originally formed the team, and they’ve since been able to draw in the big names like Mantis. Before you go see Vol. 2, brush up on these familiar faces from the first installment!
