GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY (1990) (#1-62) (MARVEL) #2 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: Guardians of the Galaxy (1990) #2
"The Stark Truth!" is written and drawn by Jim Valentino and inked by Steve Montano. On the backwater planet of Courg, the Guardians of the Galaxy seek out the shield of the legendary Captain America, the hero from the past that has served as their inspiration. But instead of Cap's shield, the Guardians find a race of cyborg aliens who call themselves The Stark. The product of a culture totally ruled by worship of Tony (Iron Man) Stark and his armor, the Stark are bent on conquest through technologically superior weaponry. And with the Courg as their targets, the Stark inevitably come into conflict with the Guardians.

The Stark are clear examples of how writer/creator Jim Valentino used this series to extrapolate how the 41st century would be affected by the heroes and villains of modern comic times. So when, according to the Marvel Universe time-line, Mars attacked Earth in the 21st century as part of the War of the Worlds, Tony Stark sent all of his best weapons into space to keep out of the hands of the Martians. When his rocket crash-landed on the homeworld of the race that would become the Stark, it set into motion a series of events that led the Guardians into this bloody conflict. But for all of its technology, why are the Stark afraid of Nikki, one young girl armed only with wrist-lasers?
