      I like that rendition of Walter. Looks like he is arm wrestling Thing to me. If you look at his hand it looks like rock plates and Ben loves doing a test of strength

      i could see puck and rocket being buds in the issue if he appears

      Sasquatch arm-wrestling Thing?
      Thing doesn't stand a chance! He's not super strong or anything, just a hand in a box.

      Yeah, yeah, Thing Grimm, not Thing Addams. I make my own continuity.

      If it is armwrestling with The Thing I hope there's a reference/throwback to MTIO Annual 7!

      Marvel have released a preview of CWII #5 that features our team in action.
      I'm gonna go ahead and assume that either Groot has launched Puck into the air, or something similar!

      The way he wrote them in GOTG 11 I think they'll be fine.
      I doubt they'll be anything other than background characters in the main series to be fine.
