The Guardians of the Galaxy have to fight against Mantis and the Universal Believers to get their hands on the Sarcophagus. After they find it, it hatches and takes the form of Adam Warlock.

The Superheroes manage to get him out of the crystal and re-get Adam Warlock in his original form. Groot then cocoons him till the time, he is required.

The season three of this series was a next level entertainment as it involved some more characters like Spider-Man, Max Modell, Venom, and Carnage. In this season, the Guardians of the Galaxy are accused by the collector and Howard the duck, for stealing a Kree item. This comes as the repercussion of them destroying items formerly, when they entered the special prison and bluffed the Kree Accuser Phyla-Vell.
Later, it is disclosed that Howard did all of this because he was being threatened by the collector, repeatedly and also that the Collector had transformed the black hole generator into a molecular compression engine. The Guardians of the Galaxy travel across the Black Vortex and find out that Darkhawks, the enemies of the Asgardians, have taken over the Galactic Council. The leader of the Darkhawks is Serpent, who is also the brother of Odin and wishes to take control of the Asgard.
The pieces of Dragonfang, a powerful sword, are used by the Darkhawks. They gather it’s pieces from several places including Hela’s domain of Niflheim. The Asguardians with the help of Thanos and Loki, manage to defeat the Darkhawks and Serpent and therefore save the universe.
