- Marvel Super Heroes 18 (scénario d'Arnold Drake, dessins de Gene Colan, encrage de Mickey Demeo) - En 3007, Charlie 27 revient sur Jupiter, pour découvrir que toute la population a disparu et que la planète est conquise par de méchants extraterrestres, des Badoon. Il utilise un téléporteur pour se rendre sur Pluton où il se retrouve face à Martinex. Sur Terre, le Major Vance Astro et Yondu sont également prisonniers des Badoon.
À la découverte de cet épisode, la première chose qui saute aux yeux est le découpage déjà si particulier des planches de Gene Colan, ainsi que les angles de prise de vue très inclinés, ce donne un dynamisme incroyable à chaque séquence. Les décors sont peu présents, et plutôt de type bon marché, voire simpliste, par contre chaque mouvement des personnages est accentué par la prise de vue emportant le lecteur dans une ronde effrénée.Lire la suite ›

We begin with the "Marvel Super-Heroes" special issue that introduced us to the 31st century of the Marvel Universe. Humanity has spread to the stars with genetically engineered races on various planets as well as aliens. However, the system comes under attack by the lizard Badoon, who wipe out most of the offshoot races and conquer Earth. A small band of survivors are brought together: Vance Astro, an astronaut of the 20th century kept alive via a special cyrogenic suit; Martinex, a crystal being from Pluto; Charlie-27, super-strong soldier from Jupiter; and Yondu, a blue-skinned alien warrior able to control his arrows. They escape the Badoon and vow to save Earth.
Next, a two parter from "Marvel Two-in-One" where, in one of those coincidences that abound in the MU, the Thing and Captain America meet during a zoo riot and soon find a woman from the 31st century who's traveled back in time for help. Going to the future, they work with the Guardians to take back New York. Then, a multi-part tale from "The Defenders" where the Guardians come to the 20th century with the Defenders helping them out. An intriguing bit is Vance meeting his younger self in the past and telling the history of the Guardians' future (which is established as an alternate timeline).
The team then gets thier own spotlight in "Marvel Presents" as they win the war and drive off the Badoon. However, the Guardians feel out of place in a peaceful Earth so take to the stars to explore. They meet the mysterious Starhawk, who shares a body with wife Aleta, and the fiesty flame-haired Nikki as they travel to places like a planet that's literally an insane aslyum and more.
The book is a throwback to 1970's style of storytelling but nicely sells this future world with the brutal war and this band of lost souls coming together to fight it. Vance is shown a bit bitter but understandable as he gave up his life to be put in suspended animation for a thousand years into space only to find humanity reached the stars way before then. The work with the Defenders is a highlight of Gerber's run and the artwork is uniformly excellent. The way they build up the history of the 31st century and its various worlds is terrific and pulls you into an imaginative setting with great characters. For a look at one of the more daring series Marvel tried for the time, this is a great introduction to the GOTG and worth checking out for lovers of good comic sci-fi.
But one heroically 'cosmic' team that appeared quite a bit at the time were the original 'Guardians of the Galaxy' (actually first appearing in a comic simply called 'Marvel-Superheroes #18' circa January1969) - but the 'Guardians' did not regularly re-appear at Marvel until sometime in the mid-1970's starting with 'Marvel-Two-in-One' #4 & 5, then on to a string of 'Defenders' issues and then their own limited run in 'Marvel Presents' rounding-out the late 1970's with guest appearances in the hallowed pages of ultra-popular 'Avengers' - I think I successfully found most of these at the flea-markets (or trading with friends) in those days, except for the first-appearance in 'Marvel-Superheroes #18' which was already quite pricey in NMint condition.)
These are entertaining stories with copious action, solid artwork, futuristic-imagination, and even a bit of thought-provocation (although not on the high-level of Jim Starlin's ingenious ultra-cosmic Warlock & Captain Marvel runs featuring Thanos and protégé Gamora, from roughly the same time-period).
The original Marvel 'Guardians' were really a straight-ahead super-hero group (with much in common with the 'Avengers' or 'Defenders' - partially why they continually showed-up in those books).
I feel a need to point this out to newer Marvel (especially movie) fans, because if you are expecting the eccentrically-quirky-funny-multi-dimensional character dynamics and interplay showcased in the recent 'Guardians of the Galaxy' blockbuster movie (e.g. rambunctiously-rowdy Rocket Raccoon, gorgeous green-hued Gamora, lumberingly-loquacious-termite-ridden Groot, etc.), you might be just a bit disappointed, because the iconoclastic humor in particular, is lacking in the straightforward heroics of the original 'Guardians'
But, if you are in the mood for a futuristic-version of 'Avengers' complete with vibrantly colorful copious action, and interesting stories (that were created by Marvel writers who were obviously also huge fans of 'Star Trek' as well as 'Arthur C. Clarke' 'Robert Heinlein' etc.), then this exciting collection might be just for you! The original 'Guardians' even rode a Starship that appeared as a scaled-down (but more aerodynamic version) of Captain Kirk's Enterprise, called the 'Captain America'!
This is a good compilation = Futuristic (but perhaps a bit 'old-school' 1970's and early 80's) - but if you are interested in seeing how the 'Guardians' began (before Rocket, Groot & Gamora) = take this trip back to the Future of Marvel!
