Avengers vs. the Guardians of the Galaxy is a 2019 American animated superhero film. Featuring the Marvel Comics team of the same name.
In the 31st century, the Badoon, led by Ravonna, attack the Guardians of the Galaxy's headquarters for their time ship. Vance Astro, Charlie 27 and Mainframe try to keep them back but fail. Astro leaps at them and is taken along.
Arriving in the 21st century above Earth, Astro triggers a boobytrap Mainframe programmed, trapping the villains inside the time ship in a stasis field. Both Astro and the time ship end up in separate areas in New York City.
Astro ends up in a fight with Iron Man and is arrested. The stasis-locked time ship is picked up by Shield and brought to their headquarters for analysis. Ten months later, the 21st century incarnation of the Guardians of the Galaxy, Peter Quill AKA Star-Lord, Gamora, Rocket Raccoon and Groot recover the Power Infinity Stone and learn about the time ship. The group agree to steal the ship, bringing down the status field, freeing its occupants. Captain America and War Machine end up fighting the Guardians who they think are aligned with the Badoons. Both the Guardians and the Badoons escape.
Astro escapes from prison and informs the Avengers that he and the Badoon are from the future and that the Badoon are after Xandar to free Kang the Conqueror. Ravonna convinces the 21st century Guardians to assist them.
Astro, Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, War Machine and Hulk arrive and end up fighting the Guardians. The Guardians and the Badoon escape. Ravonna reveals that her lover Kang the Conqueror was captured by the 31st century Guardians and imprisoned in Kyln in the 21st century as there was no prison in their own time that could hold him.
Ravonna threatens to use the Power Stone to destroy Xandar unless Irani Rael releases Kang. When Rael refuses, Ravonna begins detonates the first bomb, causing the Guardians, who thought they'd be making an empty threat, turn on her. The Guardians and Avengers team up to save Xandar.
Ravonna and the Badoons get inside Kyln and free Kang and begin to make their way to Earth, intending to recover the time ship and return to the 31st century. The Avengers and the Guardians proceed to the time ship's location, a secret US military base, where Kong forces them into battle. Kang subdues the Avengers and the Guardians and then initiates his master plan to combine the Power Stone with the Guardians' ship, the Milano, to destroy Xandar wiping out the Nova Corps and preventing the formation of the Guardians in their time. Star-Lord grabs the Power Stone and uses it to prevent Kang and Ravonna from escaping back to their time by dropping the whole base down on them, killing them both. Captain America, Star-Lord and Astro are too late to prevent the Power Stone from activating and Astro is forced to sacrifice himself by absorbing the power stone into himself and ejecting himself into space.
In the final scene as the Avengers and Guardians commemorate Astro's heroism, they are joined by the Guardians from the 31st century who have come from the future to honour their fallen comrade.
