Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy: 20 Easter Eggs and Their Comic Origins

Spoiler warning: this article features no story spoilers for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, but does discuss one location from the game and details twenty items that can be found there.

Despite its pop music soundtrack, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is not based on the James Gunn MCU movie of the same name. Its inspirations go back to the comics, and with that comes a whole bunch of Marvel Easter eggs. A huge amount of these can be conveniently found in one location: The Collector’s Emporium. And while all of them are labelled up to make sure you’re not left in that dark, none of them reveal their comic book origins. And that’s where we come in: our video below looks at every item in the Collector’s Emporium, and the Marvel history behind them.

For a closer look, we've also put together a full gallery of each and every item in The Collector's Emporium, with descriptions of each one. Check them all out below.
