History:

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#5 (fb) - BTS) - In search for the legendary invincible shield the criminal Force traveled to over a dozen worlds in search for clues where to find it. They consistently beat the Guardians of the Galaxy, who were also searching for the shield, to the clues though Force were unaware of that.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#1 (fb) - BTS) - Force traveled to the planet Courg to find the Book of Antag, which had some clues to the shield's whereabouts. During their search for the book they encountered the natives and apparently Force's member Tachyon killed at least one of them. Taserface of the Stark noticed the incident and reported about it to his superiors, though he presumably didn't interfere.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#3) - In deep space Firelord passed by Force's spaceship. He felt the evil emanating from the ship, but moved on because it was not a Stark ship. Inside the ship Interface ordered Scanner to monitor Firelord until he was beyond their range. Interface planned to deal with Firelord at a later point. Force assembled on the bridge to look at the clues inside the Book of Antag, which Broadside brought the book to the main terminal. Interface hoped Photon's arcane knowledge would help them to decipher the clues to the whereabouts of the invincible shield because he was sure that Force would be unstoppable with the shield.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#4) - Force continued their search for the shield. It led them to the planet Entem where they showed no mercy to the natives before entering a temple where they found the next clue on a tablet. Photon deciphered the tablet, which spoke of a machine that walked the morning as a man and spent the night as world beyond the Pleiades, around a star that gave no light. There the shield awaited any worthy enough to possess it.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#5 - BTS) - Force arrived at thief final destination in search for the shield. On Mainframe's planet they learned another group was searching for the shield as well. They agreed to battle them in a contest and were teleported to different locations on the planet in teams of two.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#5) - Brahl and Broadside were the first to be teleported to a battle arena. They faced off against Martinex and Charlie-27 of the Guardians of the Galaxy. Recognizing them Brahl suggested to Broadside to show no mercy, but she showed interest of a more amorous nature in Charlie-27. While Brahl attacked Martinex mercilessly, Broadside flirted with Charlie-27, who had no interest to fraternize with the enemy and tried to knock her out with one punch. To his surprise she wasn't knocked out so easily and angered by his attack and rejection used her powers to increase her strength and then hit him as hard as she could. Meanwhile Brahl had easily defeated Martinex, who was teleported away as well. Charlie-27 crashed through several walls and was then teleported to the same location as Martinex, who was apparently seriously injured.

   Photon and Scanner were teleported to a desert to face off against Yondu and Nikki of the Guardians. Yondu didn't want to fight fellow Centaurian Photon because they were the last hope for their race to survive, but Photon didn't care. She mocked him for clinging to the survival of a dead race and easily defeated Yondu with her eye blast because he didn't even fight back. Meanwhile Scanner attacked Nikki, who escaped into the mountains and buried him beneath rocks she shot off a mountainside. Before Nikki could stab Scanner to death with a branch she was teleported away.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#6) - Eightyfive and Tachyon were teleported to a ship factory on the planet to face off against Starhawk and Aleta. Eightyfive and Tachyon watched the quarreling couple before Eightyfive used his magnetic powers to stop Aleta with a metal wall and introduced himself and Tachyon, then used metal coils to trap Aleta. Starhawk came to her aid, but Tachyon intercepted his light blast and reflected it back at him. Tachyon followed Starhawk, who realized Tachyon only reacted and his best action against the creature was not to fight it at all and was teleported away. Meanwhile Eightyfive trapped Aleta in metal, but decided to release her because it reminded him of his slave camp childhood, but she was gone as she had been teleported away.

   From opposing rooms behind glass walls the members of Force and Guardians of the Galaxy watched their leaders Interface and Vance Astro face off for the right to own the invincible shield. Interface easily defeated Astro by ripping his costume by turning it to Helium, exposing Astro's skin to the air. Holding up the shield Interface tried to use it to force the Guardians of the Galaxy into servitude, but it didn't work. He soon realized the shield had no magic powers at all and dropped it. Astro picked it up and gave an inspiring speech in the spirit of Captain America, the original owner of the shield. Mainframe declared Astro worthy of the shield and teleported Force back to their ship and told them to never return to this planet. He teleported their ship 15 parsecs away from the planet. Though Brahl wished to return to take revenge on the Guardians, the other members of Force, including their leader had no interest because they were in it for the money and not pointless vendettas.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#11) - Interface called everyone to the bridge to inform them they had discovered an anomaly on an intercept course that was too small to be anything but a single being and too hot to not be on fire. Interface realized there was trouble between Broadside and Brahl.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#13 (fb) - BTS) - Force picked up Malevolence, the daughter of Mephisto, in outer space.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#13) - Malevolence easily defeated the members of Force while Brahl stayed in an intangible state. Brahl was impressed and tried to negotiate with Malevolence. Her terms were clear: work for her and he will be rewarded with wealth, which she should've told the other members of Force earlier according to Brahl because that was what they were interested in. Brahl still made the deal with Malevolence to get a chance at revenge on the Guardians of the Galaxy.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#14 (fb) - BTS) - Malevolence appointed Brahl the new leader of Force.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#14) - Force, with Brahl as their leader, traveled with Malevolence to Homeworld where she planned to be appointed the Matriarch of Protege by the Universal Church of Truth. Interface was not pleased to return to Homeworld. Him, Broadside and Eightyfive were planned to make Brahl pay for his treachery and forcing them into Malevolence's service.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#15) - Force, except for Brahl, watched from the sidelines as Malevolence beat another contender, a Stark, to the title of Matriarch for Protege. Interface knew Protege gained the powers of each defeated contestant, getting closer to omnipotence with each. Eightyfive asked Interface when they would make their move, but Interface warned the other members of Force from using their powers because Protege would only assimilate them and become more powerful. Broadside asked Interface why he seemed to know so much about the Protege and he told the others how his home world Uloc was enslaved by the Universal Church of Truth after resisting their doctrine. Brahl approached the rest of the team and told them Malevolence had talked to him between rounds. Interface mocked him for being on her leash, but Brahl knew Interface was only jealous because Malevolence had made him the new new leader of Force.

   A short time later Brahl teleported with Force on to the Guardians' ship to murder Aleta on Malevolence's order. The other Guardians got in their way. While Scanner fought Nikki, Replica brutally attacked Eightyfive when she realized he was a Kree, Interface attacked Martinex and Brahl went after Starhawk. Other members of both teams had different ideas altogether. Charlie-27 and Broadside got locked in a test of strength, but it ended amicable between them when Charlie-27 promised not to hit Broadside, who had no intention to hurt him anyway, again. Meanwhile Photon decided to find Yondu and tell him about her origin because she wanted him to know why she hated their race before killing him. Tachyon didn't fight at all after Aleta suggested to Vance Astro to just not attack the creature because it only reacted to attacks. Starhawk defeated Brahl after he was distracted when their main target Aleta escaped and in the end Martinex and Interface decided to join forces against the threat posed by the Universal Church of Truth's Protege.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#16) - A second before Photon could shoot Yondu with her eye beams he slashed her throat with his blade. A shocked Interface rushed toward her and stopped the bleeding by turning the air around the wound into a plaster cast. Interface asked for Photon to be brought to sickbay when Yondu, who was in shock at what he had done, rushed to him and offered to bring Photon there, but Interface didn't want Yondu to come near her again and turned Yondu's right hand into water vapor. Martinex told Interface the sickbay was down the corridor and Interface carried Photon there while Martinex froze Yondu's wound and took him to sickbay as well. Astro told everyone the fight was over, but Brahl ordered the other members of Force to get revenge on the Guardians for Photon. Broadside had enough of Brahl and threatened his life, but he teleported away before she could reach him and told her he would tell Malevolence of Force's betrayal. Broadside then prevented Scanner from hurting Nikki any further while Starhawk convinced Replica to go of Eightyfive. Seeing the Skrull Replica and the Kree Eightyfive agree to a truce made the other members called for a truce as well until they found out more about the conditions of Yondu and Photon. At the sickbay Martinex tried to explain Yondu's actions against Photon to Interface, who had a hard time believing him. He considered the weapon arm Martinex gave to Yondu a reward for nearly killing his daughter Photon, but even Photon tried to calm down Interface because the threat the Protege posed was too great. Interface and Martinex left Photon and Yondu at sickbay to give them time to rest while they headed to the other members of their teams. While Scanner still wanted to kill the Guardians and Eightyfive blamed Yondu for killing Photon and Replica for being a Skrull, Broadside stopped them both from moving in on the Guardians. On the way to their teams Interface told Martinex about the violent, genocidal recruitment drive of the Universal Church of Truth and how they had bred their own god, who could acquire any kind of ability he ever witnessed. It frightened them both because Protege could easily rule or destroy the universe by gaining the power of a being like Galactus and Malevolence could become Protege's teacher. Interface and Martinex asked Force and the Guardians of the Galaxy to turn away from their personal animosities so they could work together against the threat posed by the Protege. Both teams teleported to Homeworld where Malevolence tried to convince Protege that Aleta was a traitor because her allies were coming to Homeworld to assassinate Protege. As soon as Force and the Guardians arrived they were surrounded by the UCT's Black Guard, who had been brought in by Protege. Aleta asked Protege to stop before blood was spilled, but Protege didn't want to. The Guardians and Force fought hard without using their powers, but when Replica kneeled before Protege everything went wrong. Charlie-27 asked for a shield, which Martinex provided. As soon as Eightyfive saw that he used his powers as well, followed by other members of Force and the Guardians to Protege's delight. While Protege absorbed their powers the Guardians and Force kept fighting the Black Guard while Aleta fought Malevolence. Astro and Starhawk were sure Aleta had gone mad when she hit Astro with an energy blast and Starhawk absorbed Aleta back into himself, then fled Homeworld. Protege asked to know what Malevolence had done to Aleta, but Malevolence told him Starhawk was responsible. Protege ordered the fighting to stop and asked what had happened to Aleta. Nikki told Protege Starhawk had absorbed her. Protege didn't understand and wanted Starhawk returned to Homeworld, but that was impossible at the time. Protege threatened to kill Force and the Guardians because they had displeased him, but Replica asked Protege to show mercy and Protege granted her her wish in return for her to stay as his playmate. Protege then teleported Force and the Guardians back to the Guardians' spaceship Captain America II. On the ship Yondu allowed Photon to keep his yaka arrows because he had no use for them anymore and while he decided to move his thinking forward she decided to discover her past. Shortly after Force and the Guardians arrived on board Interface decided to return Force to their own ship. He assured Martinex they would be enemies again when they met next because Force were thieves and not heroes like the Guardians. Charlie-27 asked Broadside to stay, but she didn't want to give up her life of crime and parted ways with Charlie after a kiss. Shortly after Force returned to their vessel and their life of crime.

Comments: Created by Jim Valentino (writer/pencils) & Steve Montano (inks).

In Guardians of the Galaxy Annual I#2 (1992) Nikki made a list of the Guardians of the Galaxy's top ten thugs for Talon and Force were on #7. The top ten list was by Jim Valentino (writer/pencils) and Michael Bair (inks).

Uloc, the homeworld of Interface, may be a nod to DC Comics' Colu, the homeworld of Superman's enemy Brainiac (Vril Dox), his son Vril Dox II, and their descendant Brainiac 5 (Querl Dox). Brainiac 5 was a member of the Legion of Super Heroes, DC's resident 30th century hero team, like the Guardians. And the origin of Interface in GotG #15 (captured from his homeworld, imprisoned and escaping while gathering a group of alien enforcers) parallels Vril Dox II's origin in DC's Invasion and L.E.G.I.O.N.

Thanks to Donald Campbell for pointing out it was Malevolence defeating Force in #13 and not Brahl. Also BIG THANKS to him for providing information by Jim Valentino concerning his work on the original Guardians of the Galaxy series, which mostly consisted of Valentino's Guardians of the Galaxy Retrospective [Updated 6 Jun 2005] posted on the Guardians of the Worlds website, an archive of several posts made by Valentino on ImageComics.com
In Valentino's notes on his future plans for the Guardians of the Galaxy he revealed his plans to unite the members of Force and Rancor's Lieutenants as Kang's Legion in Guardians of the Galaxy I#37-39, finally revealing them as a version of DC's Legion of Super-Heroes. Interface (Brainiac 5 and Element Lad), Brahl (Phantom Girl), Scanner (Dawnstar), Photon (Wildfire), Shaddo (Shadow Lass), Broadside (Starboy, only she draws her power from planets, not the stars and uses it to increase her own mass/density, hence her strength), Eightyfive (Cosmic Boy in Mon-El drag), Rancor (Timberwolf), Mind-Scan (Saturn Girl), Replica (Chameleon), Blockade (Colossal Boy/Blockade Boy), Blaster (Ultraboy), Tachyon (my idea of Reflecto) and "new Legionnaires" Bat-Wing, Rhodney and Side-Step (although, coincidentally, she would have conformed to Gates who was added to the Legion years after this). To drive the point further home (beyond the story arc's title Kang's Legion) there would have been a couple of new members - Electron (Lightning Lad), Nova (Sun Boy) and a teen-age Gladiator (Superboy). It was Force's and the Lt.'s powers (and not their physical appearance) that were the key to who they were supposed to be. He had made a conscious effort not to be as obvious as the Imperial Guard, but it became too oblique as no one ever caught it.

Broadside

Broadside is a Mobian female, who can increase her strength proportionally by channeling any planetary body's gravitational field into her body. The limit and origin of her powers is unknown.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#5 (fb) - BTS) - Force traveled to over a dozen planets to search for clues where to find the legendary invincible shield. They always left behind death and destruction.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#1 (fb) - BTS) - Force attacked locals on the planet Courg and stole the Book of Antag.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#3) - Interface called together Force to have a look at the Book of Antag to find clues inside it to the location of the legendary invincible shield.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#4) - Force continued their search for the shield. It led them to the planet Entem where they showed no mercy to the natives. Broadside was angered one of the natives broke one of her nails. She then entered a temple with the rest of the team where they found the next clue on a tablet that would lead them of world beyond the Pleiades circling a dark star.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#5 - BTS) - Force arrived at thief final destination in search for the shield. On Mainframe's planet they learned another group was searching for the shield as well. They agreed to battle them in a contest and were teleported to different locations on the planet in teams of two.

To his surprise she wasn't knocked out so easily and angered by his attack and rejection used her powers to increase her strength and then hit him as hard as she could. Charlie-27 crashed through several walls and was then teleported away only to find Martinex severely injured where he was teleported to.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#6) - Force watched their leader Interface easily defeat Vance Astro for the right to hold the shield, but when he realized the shield didn't actually have any magic powers he dropped it. Astro picked up the shield and proved himself worthy with an inspiring speech in the spirit of Captain America and Mainframe teleported Force back to their ship, warning them to never return to this world. Their ship was then teleported 15 parsecs away from the planet by Mainframe. Broadside still couldn't get Charlie-27 out of her head.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#11 (fb) - BTS) - Brahl spied on Broadside in the shower.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#11) - Broadside looked at an image of Charlie-27 in her quarter and fantasized about him. Brahl watched her until she noticed him. He admitted it wasn't the first time and Broadside was disgusted and threatened to kill him for this. Brahl was saved by Interface, who called everyone to the bridge to inform them they had discovered an anomaly on an intercept course that was too small to be anything but a single being and too hot to not be on fire. Interface realized there was trouble between Broadside and Brahl.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#13) - Brahl defeated the other members of Force to impress Malevolence and then formed an alliance with her even though she offered wealth, which she should've told the other members of Force earlier according to Brahl because that was what they were interested in. Brahl still made the deal with Malevolence to get a chance at revenge on the Guardians of the Galaxy.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#14) - With their new leader Brahl Force traveled with Malevolence to Homeworld where she planned to be appointed the Matriarch of Protege by the Universal Church of Truth. Interface was not pleased to return to Homeworld. Him, Broadside and Eightyfive were planned to make Brahl pay for his treachery and forcing them into Malevolence's service.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#15) - Force, except for Brahl, watched from the sidelines as Malevolence beat another contender, a Stark, to the title of Matriarch for Protege. Broadside commented on how easy Malevolence beat the Stark. Interface warned the other members of Force from using their powers because Protege would only assimilate them and become more powerful. Broadside asked Interface why he seemed to know so much about the Protege and he told the others how his home world Uloc was enslaved by the Universal Church of Truth after resisting their doctrine. Brahl then approached the other members of Force with new orders from Malevolence.

   A short time later Brahl teleported with Force on to the Guardians' ship to murder Aleta on Malevolence's order. Charlie-27 and Broadside got stuck in a test of strength, which none of them could win. They decided to end their fight and Broadside let Charlie-27 go after he promised not to hit her again.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#16) - After Yondu nearly killed Photon Brahl called for the other members of Force to take revenge on the Guardians, but Broadside had enough of him and threatened to kill him. He teleported away and threatened to tell Malevolence about Force's betrayal before she could reach him. Broadside then stopped Scanner from hurting Nikki any further. Shortly after Broadside talked some sense into Scanner and Eightyfive, who were still thinking about killing the Guardians for what had happened to Photon. Rejoined by Martinex and Interface both teams agreed to work together against Protege. They teleported to Homeworld where they were surrounded by the UCT's Black Guard. On Interface's order nobody used their powers, but when Replica kneeled before her god Protege everything went wrong. After Martinex used his powers to form a protective shield around Replica the other members of both teams started using their powers as well, including Broadside. Protege reveled all the new powers he could absorb, Malevolence and Aleta got into a brutal fight until Starhawk absorbed Aleta back into his body because he believed she had gone mad. Feeling displeased by both teams Protege threatened to kill them all, but showed mercy when Replica promised to stay with him as her playmate. Protege teleported Force and the Guardians back to the Captain America II. Charlie-27 offered Broadside a place on the Guardians, but she didn't want to give up her life of crime. After a kiss she joined the rest of Force to teleport back to their own ship.

Eightyfive

Eightyfive is a mutant Kree male with complete mastery over magnetism (like Magneto or Polaris).

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#6 (fb) - BTS) - Eightyfive grew up in a slave camp of the blue Kree for pink Kree. Because his family's name was taken from them generations ago he, like other pink-skinned Kree, was only referred by the cell block number he was born in. Years later he still remembered how whole cell blocks of women and children were taken to be crushed or buried alive, claiming it was the only way to control the pink-skinned Kree population.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#5 (fb) - BTS) - Force traveled to over a dozen planets to search for clues where to find the legendary invincible shield. They always left behind death and destruction.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#1 (fb) - BTS) - Force attacked locals on the planet Courg and stole the Book of Antag.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#3) - Interface called together Force to have a look at the Book of Antag to find clues inside it to the location of the legendary invincible shield.

Eightyfive and Tachyon watched the quarreling couple before Eightyfive used his magnetic powers to stop Aleta with a metal wall and introduced himself and Tachyon, then used metal coils to trap Aleta. Starhawk came to her aid, but Tachyon intercepted his light blast and reflected it back at him. Eightyfive trapped Aleta in metal, but decided to release her because it reminded him of his slave camp childhood, but she was gone as she had been teleported away.

   Force watched their leader Interface easily defeat Vance Astro for the right to hold the shield, but when he realized the shield didn't actually have any magic powers he dropped it. Astro picked up the shield and proved himself worthy with an inspiring speech in the spirit of Captain America and Mainframe teleported Force back to their ship, warning them to never return to this world. Their ship was then teleported 15 parsecs away from the planet by Mainframe. Eightyfive hoped to never see the Guardians again and had no interest to go after them like Brahl wanted to.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#11) - Interface called everyone to the bridge to inform them they had discovered an anomaly on an intercept course that was too small to be anything but a single being and too hot to not be on fire. Interface realized there was trouble between Broadside and Brahl.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#13) - Brahl defeated the other members of Force to impress Malevolence and then formed an alliance with her even though she offered wealth, which she should've told the other members of Force earlier according to Brahl because that was what they were interested in. Brahl still made the deal with Malevolence to get a chance at revenge on the Guardians of the Galaxy.

Broadside asked Interface why he seemed to know so much about the Protege and Eightyfive remembered how Interface had even told them he had been on Homeworld before. Interface then told the others how his home world Uloc was enslaved by the Universal Church of Truth after resisting their doctrine. Brahl then approached the team with new orders from Malevolence.

   A short time later Brahl teleported with Force on to the Guardians' ship to murder Aleta on Malevolence's order. Eightyfive found the Guardians' new member Replica crying in the hallway. He didn't want to fight the poor child even though Malevolence had ordered them to fight the Guardians, but when Replica heard Eightyfive calling himself a Kree she revealed she was a Skrull and attacked him viciously, vowing to kill him for the crimes the Kree had committed against her race.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#16) - Starhawk convinced Replica to let Eightyfive live. When the others saw the Skrull girl and Kree man agree to a truce they decided to follow suit until they knew more about Yondu's and Photon's conditions. Eightyfive still considered the Skrull girl and the supposed murderer of Photon enemies of Force when Broadside talked some sense into him. Interface and Martinex convinced both teams to work together against Protege. They teleported to Homeworld where Interface ordered everyone not to use their powers when they were surrounded by the UCT's Black Guard. They complied until Replica kneeled before her god Protege and Martinex used his powers to form a protective shield around her. Seeing that Eightyfive immediately used his mutant powers as well. When all started using their powers Protege reveled in all the new powers he could absorb while Aleta got into a fight with Malevolence. After Starhawk absorbed Aleta into his body because he believed she had gone mad Protege asked to know had happened to her and threatened to kill both teams because they had displeased him. He agreed to show mercy when Replica promised to stay with Protege on Homeworld as his playmate. Protege teleported both teams back to the Guardians' ship Captain America II where Force soon parted ways with the Guardians and returned to their ship and life of crime.

Interface

Interface is a mutate (or possibly a mutant), who hails from the planet Uloc. He possesses a heightened intellect and has the ability to alter chemical compositions. He has also a thing going on with his cranium, which could change size by some means.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#15 (fb) ) - Interface was a member of Uloc's Council of Elders, who met with leaders of the Universal Church of Truth. They attempted to convince the UCT that Uloc had obtained world peace centuries ago and didn't need the UCT's doctrine. The UCT didn't accept that and attacked Uloc because they believed only their doctrine could bring true peace. In the UCT's campaign of purification they decimated the Uloc race, including Interface's wife and daughter, and enslaved the members of the delegation, who had survived the purge of their race. The UCT used the intellect of Interface and the other survivors to program the UCT's computer network. Interface would've remained a slave, imprisoned on Homeworld if the alien Tachyon had not appeared one day in his cell. Tachyon mutated Interface with a wave of its hand to give him the power of transmutation (though Interface wasn't sure if this power had not already been dormant inside him before Tachyon's appearance). Together they escaped Homeworld and over the next years founded Force. Interface began calling his alien savior Tachyon.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#5 (fb) - BTS) - Force traveled to over a dozen planets to search for clues where to find the legendary invincible shield. They always left behind death and destruction.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#1 (fb) - BTS) - Force attacked locals on the planet Courg and stole the Book of Antag.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#3) - Scanner informed Force's leader Interface about Firelord approaching them, but he apparently was looking for somebody else. Interface still ordered Scanner to monitor him until he was beyond Scanner's range. Interface vowed to deal with Firelord eventually. He then called Force together to have a look at the Book of Antag from Courg and especially asked Photon to have a look at it due to her arcane knowledge to decipher the clues to the location of the legendary invincible shield. Interface was sure they would be unstoppable with the shield.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#4) - Force continued their search for the shield. It led them to the planet Entem where Interface criticized the other members of Force for the senseless violence against the locals and the wanton destruction. He realized the natives were only trying to prevent them from entering their temple. Inside the temple Interface used his powers to free a tablet then asked Photon to decipher it. The tablet directed them to a world circling a dark star beyond the Pleiades.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#5 - BTS) - Force arrived at thief final destination in search for the shield. On Mainframe's planet they learned another group was searching for the shield as well. They agreed to battle them in a contest and were teleported to different locations on the planet in teams of two.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#6) - From opposing rooms behind glass walls the members of Force and Guardians of the Galaxy watched their leaders Interface and Vance Astro face off for the right to own the invincible shield. Interface easily defeated Astro by ripping his costume by turning it to Helium, exposing Astro's skin to the air. Holding up the shield Interface tried to use it to force the Guardians of the Galaxy into servitude, but it didn't work. He soon realized the shield had no magic powers at all and dropped it. Astro picked it up and gave an inspiring speech in the spirit of Captain America, the original owner of the shield. Mainframe declared Astro worthy of the shield and teleported Force back to their ship and told them to never return to this planet. He teleported their ship 15 parsecs away from the planet. Though Brahl wished to return to take revenge on the Guardians, the other members of Force, including Interface had no interest because they were in it for the money and not pointless vendettas. Interface then ordered Scanner to prepare the shield for hyperspace because there were planets out there to plunder.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#11) - Interface called everyone to the bridge to inform them they had discovered an anomaly on an intercept course that was too small to be anything but a single being and too hot to not be on fire. Interface realized there was trouble between Broadside and Brahl.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#13 - BTS) - Brahl defeated the other members of Force to impress Malevolence and then formed an alliance with her even though she offered wealth, which she should've told the other members of Force earlier according to Brahl because that was what they were interested in. Brahl still made the deal with Malevolence to get a chance at revenge on the Guardians of the Galaxy.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#14) - With their new leader Brahl Force traveled with Malevolence to Homeworld where she planned to be appointed the Matriarch of Protege by the Universal Church of Truth. Interface was not pleased to return to Homeworld. Him, Broadside and Eightyfive were planned to make Brahl pay for his treachery and forcing them into Malevolence's service.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#15) - Force, except for Brahl, watched from the sidelines as Malevolence beat another contender, a Stark, to the title of Matriarch for Protege. Interface knew Protege gained the powers of each defeated contestant, getting closer to omnipotence with each. Eightyfive asked Interface when they would make their move, but Interface warned the other members of Force from using their powers because Protege would only assimilate them and become more powerful. Broadside asked Interface why he seemed to know so much about the Protege and he told the others how his home world Uloc was enslaved by the Universal Church of Truth after resisting their doctrine. Brahl approached the rest of the team and told them Malevolence had talked to him between rounds. Interface mocked him for being on her leash, but Brahl knew Interface was only jealous because Malevolence had made him the new new leader of Force.

   A short time later Brahl teleported with Force on to the Guardians' ship to murder Aleta on Malevolence's order. Interface attacked Martinex, but after they saw Broadside and Charlie-27 had stopped fighting, they realized it was the right idea. Martinex suspected the Protege child was a big threat and Interface assured him it was a far bigger threat than Martinex could even imagine. Martinex and Interface decided to join forces against the threat posed by the Universal Church of Truth's Protege.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#16) - A shocked Interface rushed toward Photon after Yondu cut her throat and stopped the bleeding by turning the air around the wound into a plaster cast. Interface asked for Photon to be brought to sickbay when Yondu, who was in shock as well at what he had done, rushed to him and offered to bring Photon there, but Interface didn't want Yondu to come near her again and turned Yondu's right hand into water vapor. Martinex told Interface the sickbay was down the corridor and Interface carried Photon there. At the sickbay Martinex tried to explain Yondu's actions against Photon to Interface, who had a hard time believing him. He considered the weapon arm Martinex gave to Yondu a reward for nearly killing his daughter Photon, but even Photon tried to calm down Interface because the threat the Protege posed was too great. Interface and Martinex left Photon and Yondu at sickbay to give them time to rest while they headed to the other members of their teams. On the way to their teams Interface told Martinex about the violent, genocidal recruitment drive of the Universal Church of Truth and how they had bred their own god, who could acquire any kind of ability he ever witnessed. It frightened them both because Protege could easily rule or destroy the universe by gaining the power of a being like Galactus and Malevolence could become Protege's teacher. Interface and Martinex asked Force and the Guardians of the Galaxy to turn away from their personal animosities so they could work together against the threat posed by the Protege. Both teams teleported to Homeworld where Malevolence tried to convince Protege that Aleta was a traitor because her allies were coming to Homeworld to assassinate Protege. As soon as Force and the Guardians arrived they were surrounded by the UCT's Black Guard, who had been brought in by Protege. The Guardians and Force followed Interface's order not to use their powers at first, but when Replica kneeled before Protege everything went wrong. Martinex provided a shield for her despite Interface telling him not to, then Eightyfive used his powers because Martinex just did and others followed suit to the delight of Protege, who absorbed all the new powers presented to him while Aleta fought Malevolence. After Starhawk, who believed Aleta had gone mad, absorbed her into his body Protege ordered the battle to stop and asked what had happened to Aleta. When he was told he wanted Starhawk returned to Homeworld, but that was impossible at the time. Protege threatened to kill Force and the Guardians because they had displeased him, but he showed mercy when Replica agreed to stay on Homeworld as his playmate. Protege then teleported Force and the Guardians back to the Guardians' spaceship Captain America II. Interface was glad to see Yondu and Photon had not killed each other when they arrived on board. Interface wanted to discuss Photon's new understanding later with her after teleporting back to Force's ship. Martinex was sure they were allies now, but Interface reminded him Force were thieves and not heroes like the Guardians and when they next met they would inevitably be enemies again. Interface teleported back to his ship with the rest of Force to return to their life of crime.

Photon

Photon is a female Centaurian, who was born with the power to emit deadly energy beams from her eyes. She can also fly and possesses some arcane knowledge. It is unknown if she is a mutant (though it is very likely because it was the 90s).

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#15 (fb) ) - Born on Centauri IV with the power to fire beams from her eyes she was believed to be a kavkov (demon) by her tribe. They wanted to kill her to appease Anthos, but her warriors father fought them. His sacrifice gave his wife enough time to flee with their child into the Great Forest, but for the life-long cave dweller life in the woods was too much. Photon's mother she became ill and died before a full turn of the seasons. Too young to survive on her own Photon was found by Interface, who took the child, who had barely left her mother's pouch, away from Centauri IV.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#5 (fb) - BTS) - Photon's original tribal name from Centauri IV was forgotten with her leaving her home world (because she was too young to even know it).

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#15 (fb) ) - Interface raised Photon like the daughter he had lost to the Universal Church of Truth. He taught her many things including how religion had torn them both from their families, a fact that made Photon reject the Centaurian belief system for the rest of her life.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#5 (fb) - BTS) - Force traveled to over a dozen planets to search for clues where to find the legendary invincible shield. They always left behind death and destruction.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#1 (fb) - BTS) - Force attacked locals on the planet Courg and stole the Book of Antag. Photon brutally murdered the brother of the Courga Atur.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#3) - Interface called together Force to have a look at the Book of Antag to find clues inside it to the location of the legendary invincible shield. Interface specifically asked her to have a look at it due to her arcane knowledge, which could help them decipher the clues.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#4) - Force continued their search for the shield. It led them to the planet Entem where they showed no mercy to the natives before entering a temple where they found the next clue on a tablet. Photon deciphered the tablet, which spoke of a machine that walked the morning as a man and spent the night as world beyond the Pleiades, around a star that gave no light. There the shield awaited any worthy enough to possess it.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#5 - BTS) - Force arrived at thief final destination in search for the shield. On Mainframe's planet they learned another group was searching for the shield as well. They agreed to battle them in a contest and were teleported to different locations on the planet in teams of two.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#5) - Photon and Scanner were teleported to a desert to face off against Yondu and Nikki of the Guardians. Yondu didn't want to fight fellow Centaurian Photon because they were the last hope for their race to survive, but she didn't care about their species. She explained to a surprised Yondu that he couldn't feel her because she was no longer part of the Centaurians' circle of life and had actually hoped all of her race were dead. Nikki suggested she would fight her if Yondu didn't, but she was then attacked by Photon's teammate Scanner. She kept mocking Yondu and asked him if he planned to enslave her with cubs in her pouch while he hunted for food while Yondu tried to explain that it was their sacred duty to save their race from extinction. Photon called Yondu a fool for clinging to the survival of a dead species and hit him with an energy blast from her eyes. Yondu didn't fight back until he was teleported away.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#6) - Force watched their leader Interface easily defeat Vance Astro for the right to hold the shield, but when he realized the shield didn't actually have any magic powers he dropped it. Astro picked up the shield and proved himself worthy with an inspiring speech in the spirit of Captain America and Mainframe teleported Force back to their ship, warning them to never return to this world. Their ship was then teleported 15 parsecs away from the planet by Mainframe.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#11) - Interface called everyone to the bridge to inform them they had discovered an anomaly on an intercept course that was too small to be anything but a single being and too hot to not be on fire.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#13) - Brahl defeated the other members of Force to impress Malevolence and then formed an alliance with her even though she offered wealth, which she should've told the other members of Force earlier according to Brahl because that was what they were interested in. Brahl still made the deal with Malevolence to get a chance at revenge on the Guardians of the Galaxy.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#14 - BTS) - With their new leader Brahl Force traveled with Malevolence to Homeworld where she planned to be appointed the Matriarch of Protege by the Universal Church of Truth. Interface was not pleased to return to Homeworld.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#15) - Force, except for Brahl, watched from the sidelines as Malevolence beat another contender, a Stark, to the title of Matriarch for Protege. Interface warned the other members of Force from using their powers because Protege would only assimilate them and become more powerful. Broadside asked Interface why he seemed to know so much about the Protege and he told the others how his home world Uloc was enslaved by the Universal Church of Truth after resisting their doctrine. Brahl then approached Force with new orders from Malevolence.

   A short time later Brahl teleported with Force on to the Guardians' ship to murder Aleta on Malevolence's order. Photon decided to find Yondu and tell him about her origin on Centauri IV because she wanted him to know why she hated their race and how Interface had saved and raised her. After ending her story she told Yondu she had to kill him because of his absolute faith as an Anthos worshiper. Though he had come to kill her Yondu had realized Photon was just a victim of prejudice on Centauri IV, but he no chance than to fight her because she would kill him if he didn't kill her first.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#16) - A second before Photon could shoot Yondu with her eye beams he slashed her throat with his blade. A shocked Interface rushed toward her and stopped the bleeding by turning the air around the wound into a plaster cast. Interface asked for Photon to be brought to sickbay when Yondu, who was in shock at what he had done, rushed to him and offered to bring Photon there, but Interface didn't want Yondu to come near her again and turned Yondu's right hand into water vapor. Martinex told Interface the sickbay was down the corridor and Interface carried Photon there. At the sickbay Martinex tried to explain Yondu's actions against Photon to Interface, who had a hard time believing him. He considered the weapon arm Martinex gave to Yondu a reward for nearly killing his daughter Photon, but even Photon tried to calm down Interface because the threat the Protege posed was too great. Interface and Martinex left Photon and Yondu at sickbay to give them time to rest while they headed to the other members of their teams. On the Captain America II Yondu and Photon came to an understanding. Yondu allowed Photon to keep his yaka arrows because he had no use for them anymore and while he decided to move his thinking forward she decided to discover her past. Shortly after the Guardians and Force arrived on the ship Photon told Interface she had come to understand Yondu. Interface wanted to discuss it later with her on their own ship. Moments later Force returned to their vessel and their life of crime.

Scanner

Scanner is a male Snark with an extra sense to track other beings across a planet or through outer space. He could not be ambushed due to his extra sense. The origin of his extra sense is unknown.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#5 (fb) - BTS) - Force traveled to over a dozen planets to search for clues where to find the legendary invincible shield. They always left behind death and destruction.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#1 (fb) - BTS) - Force attacked locals on the planet Courg and stole the Book of Antag.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#3) - Scanner informed Force's leader Interface about Firelord approaching them, but he apparently was looking for somebody else. Interface still ordered Scanner to monitor him until he was beyond Scanner's range. Interface then called together Force to have a look at the Book of Antag to find clues inside it to the location of the legendary invincible shield.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#4) - Force continued their search for the shield. It led them to the planet Entem where they showed no mercy to the natives before entering a temple where they found the next clue on a tablet that would lead them of world beyond the Pleiades circling a dark star.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#5 - BTS) - Force arrived at thief final destination in search for the shield. On Mainframe's planet they learned another group was searching for the shield as well. They agreed to battle them in a contest and were teleported to different locations on the planet in teams of two.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#5) - Photon and Scanner were teleported to a desert to face off against Yondu and Nikki of the Guardians. Scanner attacked Nikki, who fought back with her double lasers to slow Scanner down. Nikki retreated into the mountains, but Scanner used his powers to track her down. Nikki still managed to defeat Scanner by shooting at a rock and burying Scanner beneath the rubble. She was going to stab him to death with branch, but was teleported away before she could.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#6) - Force watched their leader Interface easily defeat Vance Astro for the right to hold the shield, but when he realized the shield didn't actually have any magic powers he dropped it. Astro picked up the shield and proved himself worthy with an inspiring speech in the spirit of Captain America and Mainframe teleported Force back to their ship, warning them to never return to this world. Their ship was then teleported 15 parsecs away from the planet by Mainframe. Interface ordered Scanner to prepare their ship for hyperspace because there were worlds to plunder.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#11) - Interface called everyone to the bridge to inform them they had discovered an anomaly on an intercept course that was too small to be anything but a single being and too hot to not be on fire.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#13) - Brahl defeated the other members of Force to impress Malevolence and then formed an alliance with her even though she offered wealth, which she should've told the other members of Force earlier according to Brahl because that was what they were interested in.

Broadside asked Interface why he seemed to know so much about the Protege and he told the others how his home world Uloc was enslaved by the Universal Church of Truth after resisting their doctrine. Brahl approached the rest of the team with new orders from Malevolence.

   A short time later Brahl teleported with Force on to the Guardians' ship to murder Aleta on Malevolence's order. Scanner attacked Nikki to get revenge on her and managed to overpower her. He was ready to kill her once and for all.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#16) - Scanner was standing next to Nikki when Interface rushed by him to Photon, who had just got her throat cut by Yondu. Shortly after Broadside prevented Scanner from hurting Nikki any further. While Photon and Yondu were taken care of at sickbay Broadside tried to calm down Eightyfive, who wanted revenge for Photon and the Skrull girl Replica, and Scanner, who just saw a chance to destroy the Guardians because there were so few of them there at the moment. Returning from sickbay Interface and Martinex convinced both teams to work together against Protege. They teleported to Homeworld where Interface ordered everyone not to use their powers when they were surrounded by the UCT's Black Guard. They complied until Replica kneeled before her god Protege and Martinex used his powers to form a protective shield around her. The other members of the Guardians and Force started using their powers as well and Protege reveled in all the new powers he could absorb while Aleta got into a fight with Malevolence. After Starhawk absorbed Aleta into his body because he believed she had gone mad Protege asked to know had happened to her and threatened to kill both teams because they had displeased him. He agreed to show mercy when Replica promised to stay with Protege on Homeworld as his playmate. Protege teleported both teams back to the Guardians' ship Captain America II where Force soon parted ways with the Guardians and returned to their ship and life of crime.

Tachyon

Tachyon is a diminutive alien of unknown origin, which could fly and move at the speed of light and reflect any form of energy back to its original source. Tachyon at least once showed the power to mutate another being or at least activate a dormant mutant ability.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#15 (fb) ) - One day the alien creature later called Tachyon by Interface appeared in his cell on Homeworld. Tachyon either mutated Interface or activated the power of transmutation within him with a wave of its hand. It then escaped Homeworld with Interface into outer space and Interface began calling his savior Tachyon. At some point they rescued a baby, who grew up as Interface's daughter Photon, from the Great Forest on Centauri IV where they found it next to its deceased mother. Over the next years Interface and Tachyon founded Force.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#5 (fb) - BTS) - Force traveled to over a dozen planets to search for clues where to find the legendary invincible shield. They always left behind death and destruction.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#1 (fb) - BTS) - Force attacked locals on the planet Courg and stole the Book of Antag.

They agreed to battle them in a contest and were teleported to different locations on the planet in teams of two.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#6) - Eightyfive and Tachyon were teleported to a ship factory on the planet to face off against Starhawk and Aleta. Eightyfive and Tachyon watched the quarreling couple before Eightyfive used his magnetic powers to stop Aleta with a metal wall and introduced himself and Tachyon, then used metal coils to trap Aleta. Starhawk came to her aid, but Tachyon intercepted his light blast and reflected it back at him. Tachyon followed Starhawk, who realized Tachyon only reacted and his best action against the creature was not to fight it at all and was teleported away.

   Force watched their leader Interface easily defeat Vance Astro for the right to hold the shield, but when he realized the shield didn't actually have any magic powers he dropped it. Astro picked up the shield and proved himself worthy with an inspiring speech in the spirit of Captain America and Mainframe teleported Force back to their ship, warning them to never return to this world.

   A short time later Brahl teleported with Force on to the Guardians' ship to murder Aleta on Malevolence's order. Vance Astro confronted Tachyon, but didn't attack the creature because Aleta told him Tachyon would only attack if he attacked first. Aleta was correct and then teleported to Homeworld.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#16) - Tachyon was present when Charlie-27 and Astro saw the Skrull girl Replica and the Kree Eightyfive agree to a truce. When Interface and Martinex convinced their teams to form an alliance against the Protege Tachyon teleported with them down to Homeworld where they were immediately surrounded by the UCT's Black Guard. During the battle many started using their powers despite Interface warning them not to. Protege reveled in absorbing their powers, but ordered the fight to stop after Aleta disappeared when Starhawk absorbed her. Displeased with the Guardians and Force Protege threatened to kill them, but Protege showed mercy when Replica agreed to stay with him on Homeworld as his playmate. Protege teleported Force and the Guardians back to the Guardians' ship Captain America II. Shortly after Tachyon returned with Force to their own ship and their life of crime.
