Guardians Of The Galaxy will be getting a new line-up when it launches again on January 23rd, and Marvel has gradually teased the eleven candidates in the running for the six slots in the final team.
Most notably, Rocket Raccoon, Mantis, Drax The Destroyer and Gamora are not part of the eleven possibilities and therefore will definitely not be in the new squad. However, Guardians mainstays Star-Lord, Groot and Adam Warlock are in with a chance, along with some other characters that have teamed up with the team on occasions since their 2008 reboot.
There are no bad candidates here, with some fans dismayed at the fact that Marvel is going to drop five of them. An eleven strong Guardians of the Galaxy would be impressive, but with so many huge personalities to juggle at once, we wouldn't see much development or interaction - hence why there has to be six.
The other heroes are Cosmic Ghost Rider, Silver Surfer, Nova, Moondragon, Beta Ray Bill, Phyla-Vell, Gladiator and Darkhawk, but who will make the cut?
