After the second Annihilation War, Star-Lord decides that a peacekeeping force needs to be formed. They could find threats before they got too big and prevent any more major disasters from happening. This is how the modern incarnation of the Guardians of the Galaxy team forms. Of course, after they were formed, three more major universe disasters occurred, so maybe the team wasn't really all that helpful. Still, they were out there trying, and Quill deserves credit for bringing them together, right? Well, not really. See, the Guardians consisted of some of the universe's best warriors, but also some of its most notorious loners. Drax and Gamora weren't really known as team players. How did Quill convince everyone to join the team? He had another team member, Mantis, brainwash all of them to think it was a good idea. Even worse, he didn't even try asking first, he just went straight to brainwashing. Forcing people to do something they normally wouldn't do is like the textbook definition of being a villain, so good job Star-Lord. You creep.
