The team consists of Starlord, half-earthling, half-alien royalty armed with his amazing Element Gun; Drax, a great fighter who is also a loose cannon; Gamora, the most dangerous woman in the universe and skilled in the use of every weapon; Rocket Raccoon; a master strategist with a laser gun and rocket pack (but isn't really a raccoon); and Groot, a huge sentient alien plant. Nova worked with the team when he first received his powers, but left to return to Earth.
