As we pick up with Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy in Vol. 2, The Sovereign – an uptight race of golden dipped genetic perfection – have commissioned them to defend a platform from ill-intended creatures. In true Guardians fashion, the recently-formed family of mercenaries manages to simultaneously save the day and piss off those they are protecting. After fleeing impending doom, the team comes across Peter’s dad, Ego, who holds to key to Star-Lord's heritage, a mystery that tantalized us at the end of the first film. From this point, Star-Lord, Gamora, Rocket, Groot, and Drax are forced to once again save the universe, this time with some new and unlikely teammates in the form of Yondu and Nebula.
