The Hurricane saves the Guardians
How will Devin Dark ever be defeated? Will the Guardians protect us?
RALEIGH -- Fans at RBC Center were treated to a 10-minute laser-and-video show starring all 30 NHL Guardians during the second intermission of the 2011 All-Star Game presented by Discover.

Comics legend Stan Lee, who was the force behind The Guardian Project, introduced the sellout crowd to the Guardians and provided background into their history and super powers.

But things turned dangerous after the Guardians were unveiled, as the evil force out to destroy the Guardians known as Devin Dark interrupted and took control of the show. The Guardians appeared outside the arena on the big board, only to be sucked into the building by a devious device and trapped under the ice.

Fortunately for everyone involved The Hurricane, who received the biggest cheers, came to the rescue. He pulled the Guardians out of the ice to safety, seemingly bringing an end to the Guardian saga. It turns out it was just the beginning.

Devin Dark threatened revenge against the true leader of the Guardians, Mike Mason. His story line will be revealed in full as the story moves forward.

How will Devin Dark ever be defeated? Will the Guardians protect us?

Only time will tell.

Quote of the Day

Your team is going to want to recapture the feeling. What they're going to have to figure out is they're going to have to rewrite the story. Because you're going to rewrite the story doesn't mean you want a different end. It's just that you're going to have to learn that there's different challenges to get there, and if you're going to try and tap the same feeling, it ain't going to happen.
