"Guardians Of The Galaxy": First Look @ 'Yondu'

Take another look at actor Michael Rooker ("The Walking Dead") as the blue-skinned alien 'Yondu', in Marvel Studios currently filming feature "Guardians Of Then Galaxy".

'Yondu Udonta', a founding member of the "Guardians of the Galaxy" team is a member of the 'Zatoan' tribe, native to 'Centauri IV'. Functioning as a hunter, his homeworld was the first planet to be colonized by humans outside of Earth's solar system.

The character possesses no superhuman physical powers, but is a natural mystic, possessing an intuitive mystical "sixth sense" perception that permits him limited empathic relationships with other lifeforms.  

Yondu is an above average physical specimen of his race, with an ability to whistle with a range of four octaves, aiding his archery prowess, as well as being an excellent hand-to-hand combatant.

Yondu also uses a single curve bow and a quiver of arrows composed of 'yaka', a special sound-sensitive metal found only on Centauri IV. A yaka arrow can actually change its direction in response to certain high-octave whistle-sounds. He also carries a dagger.
