Hired by Ego
Hunting Down Star-Lord
A Questionable Partnership
- "You betrayed me! Steal my money! When I picked you up as a kid, these boys wanted to eat you. They ain’t never tasted Terran before. I saved your life!"
"Oh, will you shut up about that? God! Twenty years, you’ve been throwing that in my face, like it’s some great thing, not eating me!"
- ―Yondu Udonta and Star-Lord
On Knowhere, the Ravagers eventually found Star-Lord, and he turned himself into them. Quill negotiated a deal with Udonta to hand over the Orb in exchange for help to stop a Kree terrorist called Ronan the Accuser from using the Orb to destroy Xandar.
On Xandar, numerous M-ships went to fight Ronan's forces, and Yondu Udonta was shot down. Star-Lord and his team, known as the Guardians of the Galaxy, managed to win the fight against Ronan while many of the Ravagers were preoccupied with Ronan's forces.
Afterward, Quill pretended to give Udonta the Orb but secretly swapped it with a Troll Doll. Yondu Udonta and Kraglin Obfonteri later discussed that it was a good thing they did not give Quill to Ego as they were hired to do.
Meeting in Contraxia
Yondu Ravager Clan followed Stakar Ravager Clan to Iron Lotus. Yondu Udonta confronted Stakar Ogord and demanded to return to his rightful place as a captain among the Ravagers, but Ogord refused. Meanwhile, some of Udonta's men talked about his misleading leadership and his softness towards the Guardians of the Galaxy. Suddenly, the Sovereign people arrived and hired Udonta to locate the Guardians and bring them to them for one million Units.
They found the Milano crashed in Berhert. The Ravagers got closer to the ship but were attacked by Rocket Raccoon. It was Udonta who stopped him, however, after revealing he planned to sell the Anulax Batteries Rocket possessed and not turn over the Guardians, Taserface and other of Udonta opponents revolted. During their fight, Nebula shot Udonta's Yaka Arrow Controller and stunned him, Rocket and Groot.
End of the Yondu Clan
- Due to their popularity, the Ravagers were introduced into the main Marvel Comics universe.
