Everything Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Borrowed From the Comics

Just saw Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and daaaaaaaaaaaang there were a lot of allusions to the comics - how many did you find? (And were there any I missed?)


So my full list is on my website, Monomythic.com, but I missed the old haunt here on Kinja so I wanted to give you guys a head’s up. For the record, I kind of fell off the face of the internet over the past year, and I’m trying to get back in. Sorry if I’ve been so silent.

I know some people had pros and cons about the movie, but the big question I keep hearing is, “Was it better than the first movie?”

My answer is - it’s different. The first film was amazing, but it also had the added responsibilty of introducing audience unfamiliar with cosmic weirdness to cosmic weirdness. And it pulled off that impossible task.


This film doesn’t have to introduce anything extremely new, just take the weirdness to the next level, and it totally does that. It’s a flarkin’ good film.

Oh, and other stuff on my site: I’m collecting a list of anti-Trump messages not-so-hidden in Agents of SHIELD episodes over the past few months. Every episode seems to have at least one, so I’ll be updating it tonight.


Also, if anyone cares, I chronicled my month-long adventure into the land of Hyrule in the new Breath of the Wild game. I still haven’t gotten out of that particular rabbit hole, so more Zelda-related articles are to come later.


Also, I’m doing occassional work for Ranker, which is a fairly decent clickbait site (y’know, despite being clickbait). So check that out when you get a chance.


Anyway, since I’m trying to get back into the internet again, any subject you guys would like to see me research?
