They are the guardians of the galaxy, but they don’t always look the same. With comic book adaptions that have gone through many changes over the years, the look of characters can change dramatically. But they’re still the same goofy heroes we know and love.
With the release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, we have a few new costumes, as well as some new faces to add to the roster. Here’s how the main players in the Marvel Cinematic Universe film compare to their source material.
Peter Quill, the Earth-born leader of the Guardians, has had many different looks in the past. According to The Mary Sue, the character has worn a helmet and gone mask-less, but his uniform has generally remained some shade of blue.
But Chris Pratt’s film uniform is a bit simpler: He dons his signature red leather duster, black pants, and usually a plain T-shirt. We do see him wear a long-sleeve shirt with a brand in an unknown language, which Pratt himself believes is likely some kind of candy from another planet in the galaxy.
