Mantis was found by Ego when she was still in her larva state, and he took her in as his own child. What Mantis was unaware of and too innocent to notice, was that Ego was using her empath abilities to keep himself calm in his journey to find his son and conquer the galaxy. Mantis stood by his side because she believed that he truly loved her as family, but she began to doubt his intentions when she met the Guardians of the Galaxy.
Mantis and Drax The Destroyer quickly bonded, and Mantis knew she didn’t want any harm to come to the Guardians. She eventually told the group what Ego was planning, and they all banned together to stop him from destroying the galaxy. After accomplishing their goals, Mantis was welcomed as a new member of the Guardians of the Galaxy.
