I'm sorry I wasn't aware we could resurrect the dead Michael Clarke Duncan died in 2012

Of course, this isn't the Guardians' first animated television appearance. The Guardians of the Galaxy first showed up on the Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, Season 2 Episode 6, titled 'Michael Korvac' (6 May 2012).
Quaser and Adam Warlock stood in the places of Drax and Gamora (who were probably deemed too violent/fighty for even A:EMH's audience), but they were well-represented on that show, especially with Rocket Raccoon and Groot.
