Who are the Guardians of the Galaxy?

Who are the Guardians of the Galaxy?

written by Walt’s Basement Board Member Arthur E. Vassar

Marvel has been hitting the ball out of the park with recent movies featuring Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, et al. So who are the Guardians of the Galaxy, and why did Marvel decide to bring them to big screen? The fact that other major properties (ie – Spider-Man, X-Men, and Fantastic Four) are in contract to other production companies, is a part of it. But maybe they decided that going with the underdogs was what Marvel does best.

Early Days

In the late sixties, Marvel had introduced many of the A-list characters and teams that have become synonymous with the Marvel name. But they were still recovering from the anti-comic book hysteria of the 1950’s. Many of their titles were partial reprint comics, featuring a new character or team story followed by reprint stories from their library of westerns, science-fiction, romance, etc. that had sustained them for so many years. Marvel Super-Heroes was one of those titles, but in issue #18 (cover dated January 1969), the lead story featured a group known as The Guardians of the Galaxy.


The time is the 31st century, and this is an alternative time-line to the main-stream Marvel Universe. The Guardians are made up of the team of Major Vance Astro, a 20th century astronaut who spent 1000 years in suspended animation on a trip to Alpha Centauri and finds humanity had arrived before him with technology discovered after his trip began. Martinex is a crystalline being from Pluto; Charlie-27, a humanoid from Jupiter that was genetically engineered for density on the gas giant; and Yondu, a native from Centauri-IV (fourth planet of Alpha Centauri-B. Each of them is the last of their respective races and they unite as a team to fight against the Badoons, an alien race that has mostly taken over Earth’s solar system.

Their next appearance didn’t happen until 1974, along with two new members (Starhawk, the-one-who-knows and Nikki, last survivor of the Venus humanoids) when issues 4 and 5 of Marvel Two-In-One featured the team along with Captain America and the Thing (Fantastic Four). In 1975 they showed up again, this time teaming with the non-group known as The Defenders in issues 26 through 29 and Giant Size Defenders #5. Both of these adventures had The Guardians traveling back through time to join up with the other heroes in their ongoing fight against the Badoon.


The Guardians next appeared for 10 issues of the series Marvel Presents, followed by a run of eighteen issues of various titles that brought back the villain Korvac from the Giant-Size Defenders story. Korvac had been intended as a one-shot villain, but he emerged as a major player in the Marvel Universe… the stories were known thereafter as The Korvac Saga.


Again the Guardians disappeared from the comic racks until the early 1990’s when then got a self-titled series that ran for 62 issues. It featured the original team in their future along with some new members, incuding a Skrull (alien shape-shifter), and Inhuman (Earth based superhuman) as well as Yellowjacket 2 (Rita DeMara) and a future version of the super-hero Wonder Man who is now the sole remaining Avenger. The team decides to continue the expansion and Martinex goes in search of more members in a mini-series Galactic Guardians.

Modern Team

So how do we get to the team that will eventually show up in the movie? In 2007 a epic storyline entitled Annihilation: Conquest ran in the Marvel Universe that brought together a group of varied galaxy spanning characters that ranged from serious to a lesser known space-farer (Rocket Raccoon) and a former Marvel monster of the 1960’s repackaged as a cosmic level entity (Groot). It was in the aftermath of this story that Star-Lord brought together the team to as he put it “on the heels of two back-to-back wars, they’re out to prevent any new Annihilation-size disasters from erupting.” The new team is based out of a space station named Knowhere. Along with some members that will not be a part of the film, they faced the Universal Church of Truth, King Blastaar (Fantastic Four villain), and two crossover stories (War of Kings and Realm of Kings) in its short 25 issue run. They then went on to tie up some loose storyline ends in The Thanos Imperative and Avengers Assemble from 2010 to 2012. Most recently the team has gotten a new series as a part of the new Marvel NOW! branding started in 2013. It has all the members we will see in the movie as well as Iron Man who is trying to expand his outlook after the events of the A vs. X storyline.


So looking at the movie cast who will we see? Star-Lord (Peter Quill, played by Chris Pratt) is a thief, rogue and a bit of a jerk. Gamora (played by Zoe Saldana) was an orphan trained by Thanos to be his assassin and is now seeking personal redemption. Drax the Destroyer (played by Dave Bautista) is a warrior is search of vengeance against one of the films protagonists Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace). Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel) is a tree-like humanoid that is both deadly and sweet, the only innocent in a group of ne’er do wells. Lastly we have Rocket Raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper) who is a genetically altered raccoon bounty hunter, mercenary, master of weapons, and battle tactics. Together they are the Guardians of the Galaxy… coming to a theater near you in August!

My Review of Disney’s Maleficent

I also have this posted on Walt’s Basement at ( Join the Disney magic there every day!

Maleficent fan made poster Peter GilbertHaving waited what seems like an eternity for this film (as I have been a Maleficent fan long before it became cool), I approached my experience with as much of an open mind as I could muster. I am not a fan of Angelina Jolie (never have been), so I was not very enthusiastic when I heard they had cast her in the main role of my favorite villain of all time. In fact, I was quite upset. As the months went on and Disney released preview after preview, I began to come to terms with the casting and began to look forward to seeing the film more and more.

I went on opening day and saw the film in digital format (not in 3D) because I knew that if I saw it in the other formats there would be things that my eyes would likely miss due to the frame rate increase, and I wanted to see it ALL. I will go back and see it in other formats at a future date.

The Cast

In my opinion, Angelina nailed this role, although her acting does have limitations in one particular scene (you all will know which one I mean so I will not spoil it for you). That scene just felt underdone and a bit awkward, but in all seriousness she really did a good job with the rest of it. Her companion, Diaval (played by Sam Riley) was also done well. Sharlto Copley portrays Stefan with obsessive conviction and the efforts he displays in his scenes is almost palpable. Elle Fanning, our Aurora, does not quite measure up to the acting that Jolie displays when they share a scene together, but in other scenes (such as with the three fairies), she holds her own just fine. Other members of the cast simply do not compare to the lead characters, but it really does not matter thanks to the excellent storyline.

The Story

The twist on the classic Sleeping Beauty tale is something I would have written. After all, I have said for YEARS now that Maleficent is a hero and a villain and has been misunderstood. It is a great tale, indeed, and long overdue. This film is geared towards all ages, so adults may leave with the thought as I did that it would have been amazing if it had been even darker, but this way it will not frighten young viewers much if at all. I really would have made it darker so there would have been more contrast in the characters by the end of the film. It is sweet in parts, humorous in others, and very well crafted however.

The film is rated PG, however I would have no issue whatsoever taking my children, even young children (ages 6+) to the movie. There are only a couple of minimally frightening parts in the film and one bit of violence that you would need to discuss. It is comparable to PG with Marvel films or something on evening television, and good parenting opportunity always results from discussion, not sheltering. My children and all of the younger ones in the theater LOVED it!

The Sets, Cinematography, and Effects

The scenery and sets are fabulous. Seriously. The CG effects are amazing and all of the creatures are completely believeable. The exception to this, in my opinion, was the three fairies. They looked a bit too CG for my taste in more than one scene. I would not be surprised to see this film nominated for an Academy Award for some of it next year. I wanted to live in either kingdom by the end of the film.

The Music

The score by James Newton Howard is well done, but it is not so influential as to stand out on it’s own or able to overshadow the story, as in some films. It is comforting and relaxing in places and tense and strong in others. It fits, but it is not the high calibur of some past Disney films. I liked it because it did not take away from the focus of each scene. Great balance there.
The Costumes and Makeup

The costumes and the makeup are sensational throughout the film. Pay close attention to adult Stephan in particular! The transformations that were done are nothing short of amazing for all of the cast. Rick Baker will get most of the credit for makeup, but in reality there was a team of nearly fifty people working to get appearances right. Costumes were designed by Anna B. Sheppard and they are remarkable for Maleficent and other key characters.

I was glad that Disney treated my favorite villain with the respect and dignity that she deserves, and all women (men, you too) will be able to see the symbolism behind the story that translates to some of us in reality. There’s a reason she is my favorite, and this story is told to illustrate it.

My rating is 4.5 out of 5 stars. EVERY DISNEY FAN SHOULD GO SEE IT!

Reside in the Haunted Mansion?

by Mztressofallevil


Everyone in my family (other than those that live in my house, that is) thinks I am a bit mad. I would LOVE to live in the Haunted Mansion at Walt Disney World.

Ever since I was a young girl I have been amused and fascinated by the 999 Happy Haunts and their not-so-humble abode. They always tell you that there is “room for one more” and ask for volunteers, so why not? I VOLUNTEER, DISNEY!

In all seriousness, the details of the mansion are something that scores of Disney fans adore and cherish. Just traveling through the mansion is a feast for the senses. You feel the chill of the breeze regardless of the weather outside, and you can sense the “spirits” all around you without fearing the “other side”. It is a grim grinning great time for all ages.

You begin in the all-time favorite, the Stretching Room, complete with the hilarious portraits and the introduction to our “Ghost Host”.



Just a bit later, after you find your way out of the room with no windows and no doors, you can see much from the comfort of your Doombuggy. These images are intentionally out of order, however, for I don’t want to spoil it if you have not yet ventured into the mansion yourself.

Lots of stairs. That could get confusing if one leaves a Doombuggy. I will wait for a better departure point.

Definitely leaving this lid intact as long as possible.

Ah, here we go! The Ballroom banquet. What’s for dinner?

Of course, I don’t think I could party on the chandelier above the table. Heights are not my thing. But party on, chandelier dudes!

The Singing Busts. I can carry a tune- oh they just have to let me join in.

Madame Leota presiding over her seance.Lots of musical instruments in that room. Maybe she will let me play one?

The Attic and a portrait of Constance with one of her unlucky husbands, all of whom met with an early demise courtesy of an axe.

Constance! I am sure we would get on fabulously- after all, we could have lots of girl talk and I am not taking anything with sharp edges with me.

Ezra, Gus, and Phineas. Now why are they always trying to hitch a ride away from the mansion? Ah, the grass really is always greener I suppose.

Which is YOUR favorite room in the Haunted Mansion?
Would YOU join the 999 Happy Haunts as I would? (Or is my family right- am I batty?)

Shall we plan a weekend?

Walt’s Basement: Seven Years Young

Seven years. Wow. Already?

My kids were tiny, and one of them wasn’t even in school yet when I started this site way back in 2006. Now one is in college and the youngest is in Middle School. I have told the story so many times, but I started this place as a haven for Disney fans who want something MORE– something extra special without fear of being ridiculed or made fun of, edited, or treated unfairly.

Walt’s Basement Disney Forum ( is a site that truly cares about it’s staff and it’s members, on and offline. It matters not if you are active now or were active in 2007, you are part of our online family and we welcome you when you are able to spend time with us. We miss you when you go and celebrate when you stay. We send you pixie dust when things are not going so good for you, and we shout for joy when you share good news with us. EVERYONE, regardless of where they come from or what they do for a living, matters here- as we are all united by our love of all things Disney.

Recently, I was told that someone asked another party about our site and another person told them not to bother- that we took a lot of time to participate on our site- that they could just join the Facebook Groups or follow us or other Disney things through social media, and that we weren’t worth the effort that it takes. Now I think that people would expect me to be hurt by this, or even get angry, but you know what I did? I laughed. It is obvious to me that anyone who has ever been involved- really involved- with our site knows that it is WELL worth the effort. We have done so much good together. Our members, Mods and Board Members have joined forces to brighten so many faces with smiles by mailing packages and goodies. We have provided coats for children who could not afford them in the cold weather, and school supplies for an entire special education classroom. We have furnished families with toys for their children to unwrap on Christmas morning, and even meals for Thanksgiving dinners. Donations to food pantries in different communities have been given by Walt’s Basement, and I happen to recall many of our members bonding together to raise funds for a very special little girl to get a specially made therapy bike, too. There are so many things we have done…..and so many things we have yet to do. We care for our online family!

No, we are not just social media, thank goodness. We do take more than a couple of sentences to get involved and get to know one another, which is a pretty rare thing these days. And when we do take that precious time to get to know someone, we invest in them and accept them as part of our group here. Before too long, I bet they even get slipped a Mickey in their mailbox (and yes, that is a very good thing). Heck, they could even get Blitzed (again, a good thing!).

Many of us have been around since the pilot year of WB, and some have only been around for a few months, but we are all united in the mission that we are trying to accomplish and have set out to since day one- to spread as much Disney magic as possible. So thank you to all of you for sharing in the dream- my dream- for WB and our dream for Disney magic. I could not have done this without you and I am forever grateful to each of you that have stood by me (and my family) through the past seven years and the growth and development of this amazing site. I can not wait to see what the future holds.


When and how did Walt’s Basement first reach you or make an impact on you? Share your story with us, and if you haven’t joined us yet- sign up today so you can share your story with us on our next Anniversary, because I know you will have one before long.

A WB In Depth Look at Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom


Roam the Magic Kingdom Park in search of clues and use your newly discovered magical powers to defeat the Disney Villains.
Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom (debuting February 22, 2012) is a free inter-active adventure game that takes places in different hidden locations throughout the Magic Kingdom Park. Guests can join the wizard Merlin’s team of Apprentice Sorcerer’s, and help Merlin fight the forces of evil in this inter-active role-playing game.

Hades, the Lord of the underworld has set his sights on the magic kingdom park, and plans on making it his new home; although Merlin stands in his way. Hades sends Pain and Panic to Merlin’s home to steal Merlin’s Crystal ball (a powerful artifact that keeps the forces of evil in check throughout the Magic Kingdom).  Pain and Panic awake Merlin while attempting to steal the Crystal ball and a scuffle then ensues causing the Crystal ball to be shattered into pieces, which have been scattered to different locations around the Magic Kingdom Park. Not being one to give up so easily, Hades assembles a team of Disney Villains to retrieve the Crystal shards for him.
Using Merlin’s Mystical map, guests can embark on missions throughout Main Street U.S.A; Adventureland; Fantasyland; Frontierland and Liberty Square. Each land in the park hosts a different adventure within the game, with different villains in each adventure.
Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom is played with a set of playing cards (Spell cards) similar to baseball cards – with a different Disney character on each. Each character possesses unique properties that will help that character fight certain villains encountered along the way.  You can obtain one pack (containing 5 cards) of spell cards each day in the Magic Kingdom. Your admission ticket will be scanned to record that you have received your cards for that day.


You can pick up your Spell cards and a map (showing the locations of the 20 game portals throughout the Magic Kingdom) at two locations. The main location is at the Firehouse at the town Square at the end of Main Street U.S.A., between the City Hall and the Emporium. The second location is in Liberty Square behind the Christmas Shop. Each pack of Spell Cards contains one rare card (Star card) and four common or uncommon Spell cards (Planet or Moon cards).
Guests can also buy Booster Packs of 7 spell cards at various locations. A Booster Pack usually will contain one super rare (Lightning Bolt) card, plus 6 other cards (usually 1 Star and 5 common or uncommon cards)
Super rare, rare, common and uncommon only represent how rare the cards are, and thus how valuable they are to traders –  the rarer cards are not any more  powerful in the game and are simply of interest to those who collect the cards.


Once you pick up your first set of spell cards, one card will be assigned as your Key card, this will be the card that will link you to the game. You will also need to present your key card once you have completed the game, to pick up your next set of spell cards to start a new adventure.  After you have been given your first set of spell cards, you will then view an instructional video explaining to you how to use your spell cards and the object of the game. You will then be sent to different location to begin your first adventure.
Each adventure will consist of 4 or 5 stops in a particular land. At each stop another video will be played, showing you just what your villain has been up to. Merlin will then ask you to cast a spell using your spell cards, to stop the villain. You will then hold up one or more of your spell card (s) up to the video display (game portal) to cast your spell. Cameras will then read and display the spell and show you your results.



The game has three levels of difficulty: easy, medium and hard. If you are a first time player, your game will be set to easy. Once you have completed the game, you can begin a new game choosing to continue on easy level or increase the difficulty of the game to medium level. Once completing the game on medium level, you can then play on the hard level if you choose to do so.

Difficulty levels of the game are as following:
Easy: Your spell card selection does not really matter; Any spell card you use will defeat any villain in the game. If you use your spell cards several times during the game, your spell carders will become stronger, thus giving you an advantage when starting in the harder levels.
Medium: This time around the Villains will be stronger or weaker against certain spell cards. Keep in mind that playing the spell cards that match the Villains weakness gives up a upper hand. The Villains are stronger and it could more than one round to defeat them. You may need to use 2 or more spell cards in specific combinations to conquer a particular villain.
Hard:  Villains at this level are overall harder to defeat. Playing multiple spell cards that have had their strength leveled up is often necessary to defeat the Villains quickly.  Different combination of spell cards cast different spells and only certain spells work against certain Villains in the harder levels. Keep in mind that the audio at each stop holds clues as to which cards you should use against the more Advanced Villains, so keep your ears open Cute
There are a total of nine different story lines, each with a different Disney villain you must defeat in order to complete the game. Each storyline consists of several chapters – a few bad guys to face, then of course the main villain of the story. The final storyline will always be against Hades, Lord of the Underworld. Once you have defeated Hades, you will move on to one final portal where you will be rewarded a virtual medal either Novice, Bronze, silver, gold or Master Sorcerer.

Once you have completed the game, you can return to Sorcerer training at either the Fire station or Liberty Square. There you will be rewarded a bonus pack of spell cards and you can then start a new game at the same level of difficulty or higher if you choose.


Why Play you ask? The Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom is a unique card game only offered to guests at the Magic Kingdom.  It can be fun for the whole family.  Most of the younger kids would enjoy the easy level, although everyone has to start on that level first if it is their first time playing.  The adults and older kids would benefit more from the medium and hard levels.  They most recently changed the difficulty of the hard level.  The change happened on October 1, 2013.  Before October 1, 2013 the hard level was played the same way as the medium level.  Once the sorcerer had found what the strengths and weaknesses of a villain, those same strengths and weaknesses applied at the hard level. Now, each villain’s weakness will change with each game. Overall, guests who play the game are satisfied.
Likewise, collecting the cards is also a reason a play.  They have come out with special collectible cards for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.  The Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom game has done that twice in a row.
In the game you can collect a total of 70 cards plus some special and regular collectible cards and variants.  Please note that the variant cards are production changes while the game was still being tested.  Each of the different cards is classified into nine different spell types: Toy, Machine, Animal, Fairy, Hero, Princess, Warrior, Monster, and Mystic.  Plus, seven different types of attacks: Charming, Energy, Gross, Quick, Strong, Wishful, and Flying.


How rare a card is categorized by means of the symbol in the bottom left corner, right above the number out of 70.  Each symbol means the following: A Crescent Moon- uncommon, A Planet- common, A Star- rare, A Lightning Bolt- super rare. Cards (1-22) Star, (23-40) Crescent Moon, (41-60) Planet, (61-70) Lightning Bolt, and cards 02, 12, 20, 22, 25, 31, 32, 35, 40, 42, 43, 50, 55, 60, 70, plus the Cast Exclusive are variants.
