Alpha Is Born
When the Guardians of the Galaxy came to Earth in search of a group of Kar Ree, Andy was exposed to Cosmic Energy during the ensuing fight. His body was completely disintegrated. The Guardians used technology to try and reform him, but it failed. However, it was brought back by itself, except with vastly powerful abilities. The Guardians confronted Andy's parents, and they gave them permission to take him to the Negative Zone for testing. Having just started getting used to his powers, he passed all the tests.
Upon returning home, he discovered that his parents had been killed in a fire. This pushed him to the edge, and he began an attack on Manhattan. The Guardians arrived and managed to calm him down. After that, Andy decided to join the Guardians, so he could prevent anyone else losing their family.
