  • Profile: At 45, Mark has newsstand bought comics older than most of the other writers at Nerdbastards in his collection.

The rest they say in hushed whispers . . . is history.

Teasing a mysterious unknown father figure from space seemed to set-up a significant plot point for Guardians of the Galaxy 2. While director James Gun has said that revelation will be addressed, it won’t be as significantly important as it was assumed to be. It’s not going to be a big secret.
