WARNING: The following accommodates SPOILERS for Guardians of the Galaxy #5
The new Guardians of the Galaxy crew have been stranded after looking for Gamora, with the intent to guard her from Marvel’s evil Dark Guardians. Their former teammate is now lacking, which suggests they have to name on the assistance of essentially the most fan-favorite of Marvel’s Inhumans. That’s proper, Lockjaw is an honorary Guardian.
As if the earlier concern did not go away sufficient of a cliffhanger by having Star-Lord almost killed by Nebula, Guardians #5 begins with Peter Quill alive and recognizing the crew has no time to spare. Even if Groot may be the leader of the Guardians as an alternative of him, Peter is aware of that they have to rescue Gamora from the Black Order earlier than they’ll flip her into the following Thanos. But reduce off from the Nova Corps, left with no ship, and completely no leads on the place Gamora has been taken (assuming she’s even nonetheless alive), it is Beta Ray Bill who involves the rescue, letting everybody know he is bought a… uniquely gifted pal.
As we discovered in Death of The Inhumans comic event, issues aren’t going so nice for the franchise’s heroes (the truth is, they’re even worse than Marvel’s Inhumans TV show). Black Bolt has misplaced his superpowers, and a number of other key characters have been killed, sending the survivors into hiding. But that does not cease Lockjaw from coming to assist his very long time pal when he wants him. After all, Beta Ray Bill got here to the Inhumans’ help after studying that Lockjaw was useless (he did not keep that approach, after all).
Lockjaw is pleased to assist, and even provides condolences about the tragedy of Rocket Raccoon (which readers will lastly get to see defined in Guardians of the Galaxy #7 – simply two extra points to go!). For the unfamiliar, Lockjaw’s distinctive capability permits him to immediately teleport himself and his companions to… properly, nearly wherever within the universe–including teleporting into the DC Comics reality, too. With a scent of Gamora to trace, the crew is transported to Lilandra IV, the place they meet a distraught Gamora claiming it’s too late… Thanos is again in his new physique.
So, will Lockjaw stick with the Guardians of the Galaxy now that the Inhumans do not want him? It definitely looks as if they might use the assistance with Thanos being a risk once more. It was within the Death of Inhumans collection that we additionally discovered Lockjaw and Beta Ray Bill have shared many adventures collectively, which followers of the 2 would absolutely prefer to learn. Can we anticipate to see a collection detailing extra of the friendship that Beta Ray Bill and Lockjaw share? We can solely hope.
