After saving the known universe once already, you'd think Peter Quill, Gamora, Drax, Rocket, and a sapling Groot would be sitting pretty. But nothing is ever easy for the Guardians of the Galaxy. After wrapping up their heroic and totally altruistic guardianship of expensive resources for the Sovereign, Rocket slips back into old habits and steals a couple. You know, for fun. Just like that, the Guardians are back on the run, and Yondu and his Ravagers are looking to cash in on the bounty. Their survival depends on the godlike figure who calls himself Ego-and claims to be Peter's father. Family is important, but for the Guardians of the Galaxy, it could be the difference between life and death.
