Carina in Guardians of the Galaxy

If you saw the movie Guardians of the Galaxy, Carina is the pink skinned girl who works for the Collector. If you didn't see the movie what have you been living under a rock, get to the theater today then come back and read this post.

Known in Marvel Comics as Carina Walters, Carina made her first appearance in Avengers #167, an awesome Avengers/Guardians of the Galaxy cross-over issue. The issue is must have for Marvel movie fans as it is the first meeting of the two super teams. It be hunted down and added to your collection for as little as $5.00, with a CGC high grade costing about $200. Well worth it for this momentous issue which will surely come into play as the Marvel movies continue to connect to each other.

About Carina
Carina was sent by the Collector to spy on Michael Korvac and turn on him in a moment of weakness. She soon falls in love with Korvac. While during a battle against the Avengers Korvac realizes that she is not helping him, so he kills himself instead of going on with the fight. Carina becomes enraged and battles the Avengers herself.

First Appearance
The Avengers investigate a gigantic space station in Earth-orbit. Aboard, they find the Guardians of the Galaxy, who have travelled back to the 20th century to stop Michael Korvac from changing their past. While the two teams are on the ship the Wasp, Hank Pym and Starfox easily defeat the Porcupine during a fashion show. During the show Korvac meets Corina and transports her away.
The story is written by Jim Shooter with art by the great George Perez.

In Guardians of the Galaxy 
Carina first appeared in Thor: The Dark World as the Collectors assistant, played by Ophelia Lovibond. In Guardians of the Galaxy she is seen in the Collectors menagerie and attempts to steal the Infinity Stone from him. 

I strongly recommend going out, hunting down Avengers #167 and buying it now. Not only another important issue in the Guardians of the Galaxy characters collection but the first crossover between the Avengers and Guardians. What are you waiting for?
