Who’d have thought the Ravagers would be one of the highlights of Marvel’s Comic Con presentation? The actors playing the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 space outlaws showed up in their costumes to banter with the cast, crew, and audience. It was a pretty memorable moment, and it turns out Marvel Studios agrees. One of Marvel’s conceptual artists, Jackson Sze, created a special illustration for the Ravagers to thank them for their “performance” on behalf of the studio.
James Gunn, director of Vol. 2, shared the gift on Facebook, writing: “This was the framed gift Marvel Studios gave to each of the Ravagers as a gift for helping us out by appearing at San Diego Comic-Con. Thanks, guys!”

The image also shows two Ravagers who didn’t make the panel.
It’s a nice gift…but let’s be honest. The Ravagers would have probably preferred cash.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is set to release on May 5, 2017.
