GUARDIANS OF INFINITY #1: Long Live the "Golden Growls!!" // Plus: When Did Nikki Lose Her Fiery Hair?

Somehow GUARDIANS OF INFINITY got placed on my comic book pull-list. It's because I read GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY. That's not to say that I want to read GUARDIANS OF INFINITY. But it came home anyway.

GUARDIANS OF INFINITY features the adventures of three different teams of Guardians of the Galaxy. There is the original team (AKA Vance Astro, Martinex, Charlie-27, and Nikki), some members of the current team (AKA Rocket Raccoon, Drax the Destroyer, and Groot), plus some new team of Guardians from the year 1016 AD (AKA some Kree woman, some Earthen guy, and three other aliens). They will band together for all sorts of mayhem and merriment over the course of this origin storyline. I'm just not sure that I'm up to another team book!

There was a back-up story in GUARDIANS OF INFINITY #1 that featured Rocket Raccoon and the Thing that was kind of fun. Nothing that too directly affected the story, but a space-based television program that totally made my day. It's called "Golden Growls!!":

Who ever knew that you could react NBC's "Golden Girls" with dogs?? Marvel Comics totally needs to create a comic book featuring "Golden Growls." Or maybe they could make a television series featuring these women? Yes. Yes! YES!!

Meanwhile, I have a question about Nikki. She has been a member of the original Guardians of the Galaxy for years. She is originally from Mercury. She is heat-resistant, she's a sharp-shooter, and... she has flame coming from the top of her head.


This is Nikki now...

What happened to Nikki's hair?? Please comment below if you know the answer to this very important question!
