Exclusive Preview: Guardians of the Galaxy #6

Thanos lives! During Infinity Wars, Gamora seemingly killed Thanos as she assembled the Infinity Gauntlet for her own ends. But the Mad Titan always has a plan, even in the face of death. Thanos’ brother, Eros/Starfox, discovered that Thanos’ had transferred his mind into another body as a way to prolong his life. Eros convinced some of the galaxy’s most powerful warriors that Gamora was Thanos’ obvious choice. Nebula, Gladiator, Wraith, and Cosmic Ghost Rider followed Eros’ lead as the Dark Guardians. And only a new team of Guardians of the Galaxy stood in their way.

Groot became the leader of the new Guardians, which includes Beta Ray Bill, Phyla-Vell, and Moondragon. Star-Lord only stayed with the team out of a desire to save Gamora. However, the Dark Guardians easily defeated their counterparts and Nova before making off with Gamora. Then Thanos made his move and revealed that Eros had been his new host all along. Now, Hela and the Black Order have reunited with Thanos as he prepares to re-inhabit his original body.
