Star Lord has quickly risen to being one of Marvel’s most important heroes thanks to his role in Guardians of the Galaxy. However, only just a few years ago, barely anyone even knew who he was. Not even comic book fans realized that he was in essence more of a jerk than the Han Solo like hero he’s portrayed as in the Marvel cinematic universe.
According to Looper: Before their hit movie came out in 2014, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy were obscure comic characters known only to hardcore fans. Now, Groot, Drax, and Rocket Raccoon are household names. But what many fans may not know is that some of the characters underwent drastic changes in their transition to the big screen. So hold on to your robot legs, because here’s what the Guardians of the Galaxy are really like…
