When I’m writing about pro wrestling, I call them handicap matches: two combatants on one side against one of the other. But even the WWE has never seen anything quite like the one at the center of Guardians of the Galaxy #19.
Continuing the exploration of the fate of Richard Rider, Brian Michael Bendis and Ed McGuinness present the second part of their Original Sin tie-in. We know Star-Lord and Nova were left to battle Thanos in a rapidly collapsing Cancerverse, but two of the three of them turned up again in the main Marvel Universe. Gamora wants to know what happened to the previous Nova, and when she sets her mind to something, she tends to get what she wants or else people end up losing lives, body parts, etc.
What kind of agreement did Star-Lord make with Thanos that allowed both of them to escape? And where exactly is Nova? Those questions aren’t going to be answered until Guardians of the Galaxy #19 hits stores and digital on September 24, but we’ve got a first look at a few preview pages right here. Oh, and Peter Quill? You should probably tell Gamora what she wants to know.
