stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with
ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the
ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a
quartet of disparate misfits—Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a
tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the
revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true
power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his
best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand—with the
galaxy's fate in the balance.
