Warning: some SPOILERS for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 are in play. If you haven’t seen the film yet, you have been officially notified.

There are so many facets to explore when delving into the story of writer/director James Gunn Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. It sort of comes with the territory when you have a project that’s supposed to say goodbye to a group of characters that audiences have been in love with for almost a decade, so it’s not a total surprise. However, in honor of this new marvel movie acting as a victory lap for this take on the classic comic book brand, i’d like to take some time to admit we’ve all been asleep Karen Gillan‘s Nebula for years.

For several reasons, and a handful of MCU entries, Zoe Saldaña’s cybernetically enhanced adoptive sister of Gamora hasn’t had enough. Yet with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, that spotlight finally found her, with Gillan and her performance receiving plenty of praise in this massive trilogy capstone. It was about time, and in celebration, I’d like to take the time to praise why Nebula’s story is one of the most important and effective arcs in Guardians history.
