Though already known to moviegoers thanks to the "Blade," "X-Men," and "Spider-Man" franchises, it wasn't until "Iron Man," "Thor," "Captain America," and "The Avengers" that Marvel was catapulted to the superhero A-List.

Once again, Marvel continues that trend to bring superheroes out of mild obscurity with "Guardians of the Galaxy" featuring Chris Pratt as Peter Quill/Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax, Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon, and Vin Diesel as Groot.

I won't even bother telling what the movie is about, but all I can tell you is that the Guardians are the outer space equivalent of "The Avengers." If "Earth's Mightiest Heroes' are Marvel's version of "The Magnificent Seven," then the "Guardians of the Galaxy" are "The Dirty Dozen."

Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket, and Groot: these five with attitudes are also throwbacks to "The A-Team," Joss Whedon's "Firefly" and "Serenity," and the modern-day Robin Hood crew of TNT's "Leverage": renegades, criminals, misfits, mavericks, underdogs, bad guys learning to become good guys, and an unlikely surrogate family.

Even better, Chris Pratt's Star-Lord is the best dressed sci-fi/fantasy action hero since Keanu Reeves' Neo ('The One') in "The Matrix" trilogy.

They may be quirky and eccentric, but these "Guardians of the Galaxy" is already warp speeding their way out of the D-List.
