Unsurprisi­ngly, the Guardians don’t stray too far from their MCU counterpar­ts in terms of characteri­sation – it’s no surprise to learn that Marvel was very hands-on in this regard – though DeMarle says Eidos Montreal has nodded towards the comics more in certain places. “Drax is very intelligen­t, but in the movies he’s very literal. We wanted to maintain that, but also make it [clear] that he’s a smart guy: he’s more of a tactician in the group.” One character diverges more from the films, however. “The character I liked best that we worked on was Mantis,” DeMarle says. “We put more of the character we saw in the comic books into her. She was a lot of fun to write because she’s so unpredicta­ble.”
