Re: "Merging of Brands"?
In the comics right now the GOTG have a singular mission statement "No one reaches Earth." That includes them (outside of Iron Man).
Marvel has treated these as different brands in the comics as they have done mega story-arcs with both Cosmic Marvel and Earth Marvel.
A dream of mine has come true, I wrote a comic called Guardians,
and it's available for purchase. And the prologue issue is FREE!
