“Baby find it, come on and find it; Hail, with it baby ‘Cause you’re fine, and you’re mine, and you look so divine” these lines from ‘Come and get your love’ by Redbone instantly comes to your mind when anyone says the name Star-Lord. It is more because the first installment of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ starts with this song and watching Peter Quill wandering through some space cavern and singing the song is one of the most delightful images the movies has ever brought us. A huge part of the vibe of Guardians of the Galaxy comes from the soundtrack, through a great gimmick presented early in the first installment, when Peter Quill is given a mixtape of the ’70s and ’80s jams from his mother. The Star-Lord you know and love from the movie is quite different from the Peter Quill you might be familiar with from the current comics. This STAR made his first ever appearance in Marvel Comic book in Marvel Preview #4, dated January 1976. Leader of the Guardians of the Galaxy has a sassy sense of humour and immensive love for music.
Born in Colorado to Meredith Quill a human and Jason (AKA J’son of Spartax) the heir to a galactic empire whose ship crashed in the Rocky Mountains. Plucked from his rural home, he was thrust into a life of roguery and adventure across the stars. Now teamed up with a group called the Guardians of the Galaxy, Peter Quill has been kicking bad guy butts and saving the day under a different moniker: Star-Lord. But how did he get this title because he doesn’t look like a lord? According to the comics, after Peter Quill leaves Earth in a stolen Kree ship, he later discovers that his father actually is a star lord, the ruler of Spartax and wants him to follow in his footsteps, and rule the Spartoi Empire as the Star-Lord, but Quill has no interest in galactic politics and conquest. Parting on meh terms with pops, he gives up his royal duties, carrying on paradoxically as “Star-Lord” while he runs around the galaxy with the Guardians. In the pages of Marvel, Gamora and Peter Quill were never really much of a thing, either. In fact, Gamora had an on-again, off-again relation with Richard Rider, the original Nova.
A formidable cosmic hero whose red Kree-fitted helmet is one of his most defining pieces of equipment that enhances his sight and provides data analysis. The Star-Lord’s costume which debuted in Legendary Star-Lord is based on his appearance in the film Guardians of the Galaxy. His second solo series retconned this suit to be his original one. Over the years, Star-Lord’s closest allies have been his ‘Ship’ and his teammates, the Guardians of the Galaxy. Star-Lord’s a lover and a fighter. He doesn’t see any reason why he should have to choose between them, so he simply doesn’t. Though there is a huge contrast in the comic and MCU character of Star-lord, we are ‘Hooked’ by both the version of this galactic hero.
