    A heap of explanations makes satisfying sense out of Terminal and Groot gets a chance to fight a surprising guest star before getting plopped back home. The final scene with the Guardians, like the start, is painfully clichéd, dragging down an otherwise above-average conclusion. A farewell letter from writer Chris Hastings notes the difficulty in telling stories about a protagonist with a three-word vocabulary; it's a pity his response to that challenge never got much past "What's that, Grooty? Timmy fell down the well?" levels. The final dose of Flaviano art is quite impressive, capably balancing out any remaining script problems and ensuring that this issue ends up being decently entertaining.
