Starlord's daddy issues

Today we'll be writing about Starlord's dad. The whole first guardians of the galaxy movie they kind of keep his identity a secret. All we really know is that Starlord himself isn't fully human and the description his mom makes in the beginning of the movie is also kind of vague ('he was an angel made out of light').

In the animated series Peter Quill's father is J'son (Jason of Spartax). Back when there was a war between the Spartoi and the Ariguans J'son was forced to crash land on earth where he met Meredith Quill. He fell in love with her and they had a short relationship but because of the war he had to leave her soon. Trying to spare her the pain of his departure he erases her memory not knowing she is with child.

In the second guardians of the galaxy movie however we can spoil that his father will be someone different! The role will be given to Kurt Rusell and he'll be playing planet Ego! The living planet has threatened earth many times in comicbook history but how they'll be putting this in the movie as a father figure is still a question mark.

I for one am excited to see how Marvel will pull this one off.
