“Strange” was the first word to come to my mind when I heard that Iron Man would be showing up in Guardians of the Galaxy new heavily anticipated title. Why would they throw Iron Man in there (this is before the “God Killer” storyline sneak peek) with the Guardians? Wouldn’t that be crazy if Tony Stark had a part in the Guardians of the Galaxy movie? Pretty wild thought but could be something happening. Who better to join the Guardians solo movie than the most popular marvel movie character? Also 500 bucks says the “rare” card is Rocket Raccoon. Here is the official Press Release:
Head To The Stars With GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Trading Cards!
This March, Guardians of the Galaxy #1 launches in style with special limited edition trading cards, ONLY available at select retail shops hosting a launch party! That’s right, one of the biggest launches of the year just got bigger with one of a kind collector’s items! Courtesy of blockbuster creators Brian Michael Bendis (All New X-Men, Age Of Ultron) and Steve McNiven (Civil War, Old Man Logan), fans are in for the ride of their life as the Guardians of the Galaxy put their lives on the line for the sake of the Marvel Universe. There’s a new rule in the galaxy, and it’s put Earth off limits to any outsiders. But why has Earth become so important? That’s what Star Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket Raccoon, Groot AND Iron Man are about to discover.
But that’s not all! ONE of these trading cards will not be as readily available as the others. But which one? Well you’ll have to head on over to a local participating retailer to find out!
So what are you waiting for? Go on out and reserve a copy of Guardians of the Galaxy #1 today!
