Well here you go, my friends. First bit of new concept art featuring the Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2, first revealed by our friends at Entertainment Weekly.

Undoubtedly there are some of you scratching your head wondering who Mantis is and that’s OK, we welcome noob geeks! Here’s a little background from Wikipedia to help you out.

Mantis was trained by the Priests of Pama to become a grandmistress of the martial arts, demonstrated as fully capable of defeating opponents as skilled as Captain America (while he was distracted in fighting a dragon). She could also instinctively sense weak points in an opponent and with her skills in pressure points, knocks out beings as powerful as the thunder god Thor. She has only lost in hand to hand martial arts match to Moondragon, and her father Libra.

She has attained a mastery of meditational disciplines giving her an unusual amount of control over her body, including autonomic functions like heartbeat, bleeding, and breathing, as well as awareness of pain, allowing her to more quickly heal injuries through sheer force of will, and affording almost superhuman reflexes and reactions. She also had psychic empathy, a telepathic power that allowed her to sense the emotions of others. (Read more on Wikipedia)
