There are way more women in the Guardians of the Galaxy comics than the upcoming feature film would lead movie goers to believe, and we really hope that a few more of them make their way into future Marvel movies. Like the rest of the Guardians, Moondragon has a bit of a complicated history; she’s an Earth woman that was raised on Saturn’s moon Titan, where she honed her considerable mental powers under the guidance of monks. Also, she was initially brought to Titan by Thanos’ father, Mentor. Oh, and, yeah, she’s also the daughter of the tortured human spirit that resides within Drax the Destroyer. So…she’s a bit complicated. But if there’s one actress that can cut through all of those complications and make the character feel fully formed and independent, it’s Nyong’o. And unlike Medusa, Moondragon sports a hairstyle much more similar to Lupita’s everyday look.
