|Vance Astro, Charlie-27, Matrinex and Yondu|
In the 31st century, the Badoon aliens took over all of Alpha Centaury and the Sol system. The Badoon soldiers oppressed their occupied planets. Charlie-27, Vance Astro / Major Victory, Matrinex and Yondu formed the Guardians of the Galaxy to fight the Badoon. They staged an Earth rebellion with the aid of a time-travelling Captain America and Thing. The Guardians later went to the Thing's time to learn about an earlier failed Badoon invasion. After fighting a mutant eel with the Defenders, the Guardians went home. The GoG was joined by Starhawk. They defeated the Badoon Empire with the aid of the Defendeers. After the Defenders returned home, the Guardians decided become space explorers and helped various former occupied planets rebuild. They learned Silver Surfer stopped the original Badoon invasion of Earth. The Guardians of the Galaxy helped Thor and the Avengers fight Korvac in the 20th century thus earning honory Avengers membership. They stayed in the 20th century for a while and had various adventures. During this, the Guardians accidentally caused Vance's younger counterpart (who is later revealed to a parallel counterpart) to gain the powers of his future self. This caused the young Vance to become a superhero that joined the Avengers. The Guardians returned to their time. The group gained new member Yellowjacket (this universe's version of Rita DeMara) and Talon. Martinex left the team to get new members: Phoenix IX, Spirit of Vengeance, Replica Hollywood (this world's Wonder Man), Firelord and Mainframe (Earth-691 Vision).
