They're a dysfunctional team with a big future ahead of them - unless the Universal Church of Truth has its way! But why are the 31st-century Guardians, Major Victory and Starhawk, here too? A fresh war looms in the exciting and action-packed story that revitalized the Guardians for a blockbuster new era!
