Well here's hoping Flash Thompson will become a permanent fixture to the team, but since you've conveniently decided to make sure I couldn't pick him I'm going to go with Rocket Raccoon.
I've only recently started reading Guardians for familiarization for Flash's upcoming joining the team, but I've been hooked and beyond Bendis' current run I've dived into Abnett's run as well. Now all the members are great (I'll admit I'm a pretty big fan of Gamora and Groovy as well) but Rocky steals the show. Whether it was making Tony Stark look dumb, his obsession with "unfeasibly large" weaponry, tactical genius, leadership skills, or love of combat; Rocky has it all. The icing on the cake? All that bad*ssery is wrapped in the cute, furry raccoon exterior. Oh, and he outsmarted Thanos, if that doesn't make him awesome then nothing Marvel can do will.
I look forward to Rocky (hopefully) stealing the show on the big screen, and if he doesn't I'm sure he's got a Number Six Special for Hollywood.
he shoulda been a rat
I would pick Cosmo if it was the DnA team (psychic + cosmonaut + dog= win) but with the choices I have I need to go with Drax. Not for the weak sauce version Bendis is pushing but the badass who cut his way through the unstoppable force of the Annihilation Wave to rip out Thanos' still beating heart with his bare hands. How do you not love a guy who can take this on without batting an eye:
