Guardians of the Galaxy #7

Guardians of the Galaxy #7Fighting with the mysterious Angela didn’t solve anything, so in the latest issue the Guardians of the Galaxy try talking to the woman who it took all of them to eventually take down. Guardians of the Galaxy #7 reveals the cosmic event that brought the angel to the Marvel Universe (the same one Thanos mentioned last issue) as well as reveals her true origins to the Guardians as an angel of Heven.

There’s not much action here, as the issue is mainly used to introduce the character (finally) to those readers unaware of her origins. The interactions between the group while talking to Angela are fun, but both Tony Stark and Peter Quill push the flippant Whedonesque pop culture joke references well past the bounds of reasonable behavior.

With no reason or authority to hold her, the Guardians release Angela to Earth (a realm she only knows about through stories). Although the issue ends with the angel on her own, given the fact she appears on next month’s cover I don’t think it will take too long before we see her again. Worth a look.
