By Can Tran     Jun 6, 2015 in Entertainment
The special guest star of this issue of "Guardians Team-Up" is Kurt Wagner aka Nightcrawler, the teleporter, from the X-Men.
Guardians Team-Up #6 was released on Wednesday, June 3rd.
Gamora takes on the role as the starring Guardian, where she teams up with Nightcrawler of the X-Men in the latest crossover story. Nightcrawler competes in prestigious intergalactic Fencing competition, where he makes it to the semi-finals.

I could compare this to some intergalactic hand-to-hand combat match.
Things are going well for Kurt Wagner aka Nightcrawler, but he hits a snag when Gamora also makes it to the semi-finals. The two of them have to fight each other, where the winner progresses to the final match in order to fight Harcon.

The match is heated as Kurt recites something from Shakespeare, which pisses off Gamora. I laughed when Gamora responded by saying that she “took back” every bad thing she said about Peter Quill aka Star-Lord, the Guardians of the Galaxy's leader.
Harcon observes the match since he's the champion, which gives him permission.
I was surprised that Kurt teleported Harcon outside of his protective sphere, where a fight sparks. It leads to the main plot, Kurt and Gamora were working together to draw out Harcon. Gamora revealed that there's a bounty on Harcon's head for his role of leading a massacre.
The issue ends with Kurt having a casual drink with Gamora at a bar.
Gamora raises a concern because they're drinking at a public bar, where they look different. I laughed when Kurt insists that the other patrons will assume that they're cosplayers.
What did I think of Guardians Team-Up #6?
Guardians Team-Up #6 was straightforward and very fun to read. There are times that I want to read something that is relaxing without having a complex storyline, which this issue delivers. I don't have much to say about Guardians Team-Up #6, but it was great to read.
There is a slight hint of romantic tension between Kurt and Gamora from what I have read in this issue.
But I doubt they'd be hooking up.
I did enjoy seeing Kurt's Fencing skills in action, which are bad@$$ when combined with his teleportation ability.
Simply speaking, Guardians Team-Up #6 is a fun-to-read story. I give it a grade of A.
