* ''WebVideo/HonestTrailers'' frames this as Marvel Studios being DrunkWithPower from their success thus far and making a film that ''runs on'' CrazyEnoughToWork... and pulls it off awesomely! "A movie about an obscure team of superheroes almost nobody has heard of! We'll take that chubby guy from ''Series/ParksAndRecreation'' and turn him into [[HeroicBuild a ripped sexy action hero]]! You like Creator/VinDiesel and his [[BadassBaritone awesome voice]]? We'll have him [[PokemonSpeak repeat the same line over and over]] the whole movie!"

* The start of new issue has the team needing to rob a bank planet, how did they do so? They use a galactus shape rocket, which for the most part worked!

** When you think about it, almost everything the Nova corps do is awesome. They completely avert PoliceAreUseless; their first action is taking four criminals prisoner without endangering any civilians, they are savvy enough not to consider a message a lie just because it's coming from a criminal, they built an empire where race seems not to be an issue (just think how we can't yet deal with different ethnicities), and the first thing they do to face an incoming threat is to start an evacuation program, and their main priority in the battle is ensure the safety of civilians (also counts as heartwarming).
** Personally, the fact the Saal objects to listening to Quill only ''once''. And, when they decide to act against his advice, he doesn't object and hopes ''he'' is the one being wrong. In most movies, he'd be the obstructive asshole, here he's actually a quite reasonable guy. Which makes [[spoiler:his death later on all that more of a TearJerker]].

* The final issue of the Brian Michael Bendis run has a very amazing one - the Brood, Badoon and Annihilation Wave are set to trample over Thanos and destroy Earth. However, the Brood Queen doesn't respond - Angela does. She gives a masterful BadassBoast which she promises to unleash the Ten Realms on their asses if they even disturb a speck of dirt and as they lie broken and beaten, she will kill them one by one with her Asgardian brethren laughing at them. They wisely decide to turn tail and run and later Annihilus and the Badoon leader decide Earth just isn't worth it.

* Then, these hundreds of Nova Corps pilots interlock their sky flyers to create a flying energy barricade to try and slow the ''Dark Aster'' down. YouShallNotPass declared by thousands of {{space cop}}s - and until Ronan started blasting them, ''it was working.'' Keep in mind, the ''Dark Aster'' is this big bulky ship that's nearly a mile wide, while the Nova Pilots' ships are roughly twice as big as a standard cockpit… but together, even with their barrier straining at the seams, they held fast and slowed the ''Dark Aster'' to an aerial crawl.

* Rocket and the Ravagers swoop in low on the Xandarian surface to protect fleeing civilians so that the Nova Corps can focus on slowing down Ronan. A misanthropic bounty hunter and a bunch of space pirates are unhesitatingly fighting to the death to save civilian lives on the capitol planet of the Lawful Good space empire that was trying to arrest them all last week.

* The movie was based on a franchise so obscure that many hardcore comic fans had never heard of it. People around the world went 'Huh?" when introduced to the concept and only got more confused at the thought that the movie would include a talking raccoon and a sentient tree and there was rampant speculation that ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'' would be Marvel's first proper flop. Then Marvel put together an amazingly cheeky promotional campaign to show that the project was all in good fun, drumming up significant excitement. And it worked, because the film received extremely positive reviews that got moviegoers lining up at theaters.

* An OffscreenMomentOfAwesome for the Kree during ComicBook/SecretInvasion. Peter Quill goes to warn them about the Skrulls, who've upgraded their shapeshifting technique and are more dangerous than ever, with all the potential superpowers of Earth at their command. Peter infiltrates Hala, and finds... that the Kree have already seen through the Skrull's infiltration and killed them all. For Earth, the Secret Invasion was a world shaking event. For the Kree, who've been fighting the Skrulls for millennia, it's just another day at the office. They didn't even think it was worth telling anyone, it was that routine.

* Rocket gives an AxCrazy BadassBoast to all of the prisoners in the Kyln after his buddy Groot reduces a massive, bullying convict to a sniveling heap, who [[PrisonRape has given his rather... disturbing welcoming speech]] to Peter.

* Rocket charging at Ronan after [[spoiler:Groot's death.]] He was initially terrified of the Infinity Stone alone and when Ronan got his hands on it his plan was to literally get as far away as possible. After [[spoiler:Groot's sacrifice]] though Rocket is willing to attack Ronan head on and unarmed. Granted it fails, but it was cool to see someone not cowering in terror of Ronan once he had reached the surface.
