Sorry, but as a very casual Marvel fan I haven't heard of GoG until this movie's announcement and then the Earth's Mightiest Heroes episode. I've tried to learn as much as I can without drowning myself in information, but after my "travels" I've got a question that I fear will be taken the wrong way but here goes: Is Guardians of the Galaxy meant to be a comedy? As in there is a plot and serious ramifications of story events but mainly the series is meant to be funny? The reason why I ask is that I've been put under the impression that the comics are set up a bit like a reality TV show and the team goes on a mission all the while doing mock-interviews where they gripe about things that happen in the story as well as their teammates. Then the whole thing where a talking Raccoon, tree man, and bug among other odd alien creatures are main characters set in the midst of an action story. The raccoon has a thing for big guns which makes it seem even sillier. Then in the context of this movie it looks as though it'll tie into Avengers 2 in some way. It'll at least be set in the same universe. So comedy can't be too far off since every lead up movie has had humor as a staple element especially in Avengers itself. So what I guess I'm getting at is whether this movie is meant to be funny or if it's a serious story aimed at a more mature audience?
