Guardians of the Galaxy

Ronan meets with Gamora's adoptive father, Thanos, to discuss her betrayal.

A drunken Drax summons Ronan while the rest of the group meet Gamora's contact, the collector Taneleer Tivan. Ronan arrives and easily defeats Drax, while the others flee by ship, pursued by Ronan's followers and Gamora's adoptive sister Nebula.

On Ronan's flagship, the Dark Aster, Ronan embeds the Stone in his warhammer, taking its power for himself. He contacts Thanos, threatening to kill him after first destroying Xandar; hateful of her adoptive father, Nebula allies with Ronan.

Ronan uses his empowered warhammer to destroy the Nova Corps fleet. The Guardians find themselves outmatched by Ronan's power until Rocket crashes a Ravager ship through the Dark Aster. Ronan emerges from the wreck and prepares to destroy Xandar, but Quill distracts him, allowing Drax and Rocket to destroy Ronan's warhammer. Quill grabs the freed Stone, and with Gamora, Drax, and Rocket sharing its burden, they use it to destroy Ronan.
