Gamora’s sister, Nebula.

Out of all the Marvel movies,
This might have been the riskiest,
But who could have predicted
That this one would be the friskiest?

Guardians of the Galaxy
Is a property quite obscure,
Featuring Marvel heroes
Of which no one had heard,

Excepting one small member,
Called Rocket Raccoon,
Who’d been ‘round since the ‘60s,
Like a character from a cartoon.

Just within the past few decades,
They tried to bring him back,
This time with a team,
To keep him more on track,

And the comics achieved some success,
But would audiences buy—
People who grew up with Spider-Man,
And that Captain America guy?

Those characters were established.
For decades they were read.
Regarding this whole new series,
Could the same indeed be said?

Thus, it was a huge surprise
When the movie of the year
Turned out to be Guardians,
And the film was met with cheer.

Rodan the Evil.

This oddball assortment of misfits
Were the perfect ingredient
For a movie rife with comedy.
It was money quite well spent.

The leader of this five-being team
Is an Earth-born human being
Who calls himself Star Lord.
He was abducted by alien beings.

Rocket Raccoon I’ve already mentioned.
He’s a small, sarcastic guy,
Armed to the teeth with a mouthful of teeth,
He’s a scavenger, supple and sly.

His best friend is a talking tree
Who can only say, “I am Groot.”
If you haven’t guessed his name thus far,
Everyone calls him Groot.

Groot can also walk around
And attack attacking things.
He’s a being of very few words,
But excels at the morale he brings.

Next we have a man named Drax,
A big muscular alien,
Who’s kind of dumb and kind of fun,
And will crack a good joke now and then.

Lastly, we have Gamora,
A green-skinned humanoid
Who’d look just like a woman from Earth,
If green skin here were more enjoyed.

They spend half this movie meeting up,
And we get to hear their tales,
And we hear them fight and argue
Before their ship sets sail.

The Guardians, victorious!

Then they go on grand adventures,
And blow away our minds
With highly impressive visuals,
And highly funny times.

This movie gets a 5.5,
For every smile and laugh
Means that it has more than earned
It’s remarkable extra half.
