As a young man, Astrovik changed his name to Vance Astro. After a tenure in the U.S. Air Force, he was accepted into the astronaut program at a very young age and was assigned for a special mission to help colonize Centauri-IV. He was placed in suspended animation and when his ship was found centuries later, Earth had already colonized the other planets in the Sol System. The Badoon attacked soon after and Vance found himself attempting to escape with Yondu. They were captured and sent to the enslaved Earth. However, they escaped and Vance found himself leading a group of fellow adventurers who named themselves the Guardians of the Galaxy.
