I found that comment a little odd as well. Maybe the Avengers are a little rusty in the cosmic department since they were too busy fighting each other during the first Annihilation and haven't really fought someone the caliber of Thanos since well before Bendis took over the book.
But that doesn’t matter really, because the Guardians Of The Galaxy know all about Thanos and they’re back too! Like Thanos, we don’t get any explanation as to how Starlord isn’t dead or how the team is back together, and I hope Bendis has a good one up his sleeve.
I am excited that Starlord is back because that opens up the potential for Richard Rider, the real Nova, to return soon. However, 2 things bugged me about the page featuring the cameo by the Guardians of the Galaxy. #1, where is Groot? #2, why isn't Starlord in his GotG costume?
Perhaps it would have been better to use The Annihilators?
Well, Ronan kind of has his own troubles right now, the Silver Surfer is hanging out with the Defenders, and Gladiator is looking for his son while he sends death commandos after a teen girl. I think that they may have their hands full. Plus Thor, Hulk, Ronan, Beta Ray Bill, Silver Surfer, AND Gladiator vs. Thanos?! Thats not the type of fight that you just throw out all willy nilly.
