To give credit where credit is due. I like the drama with the United Planets. And the reference to Mosiac is pretty good. But Thorne seems to be falling in the trap that the previous writers had reducing the ring to just being a gun. And making the Guardians incompetent. The Guardians are suppose to be powerful and effective. But most writers depower them or make them useless for sake of plot. Only Broome,Moore and Morrison seem to get how the Guardians should be written imo. Anyway I could go on and on about how The Guardians have been mistreated as much as Fourth World haha.
Wanted to leave a 2nd comment towards the thing about the movies. Imo no movie or adaption should rewrite or dictate comic history. Marvel is more infamous at doing this than DC even before the MCU. That’s part of the reason I can’t really support Thorne is one of his comments were “Comics don’t matter” Not saying you can’t be flexible with the adaptions but comics as an artform has plenty to offer even if they aren’t popular. As Morrison said “we do stuff in comics can’t catch up with.” But hey maybe that’s just me.
