Peter Quill, also known as Star-Lord, is a superhero and leader of the Guardians of the Galaxy.


Peter is half-human and half-Spartax. Meredith Quill, his human mother died and he was abducted by the Ravagers at the request of J'son, his Spartax father. The Ravagers trained him to be a thief until he was ready to be brought to his father. The Ravagers lied to J'son saying he died along with Meredith.

He met Groot, Rocket Raccoon, Gamora, and Drax when they were forced to save the galaxy from Ronan the Accuser. They formed the Guardians of the Galaxy and killed Ronan.

Quill eventually discovers an artifact called the CryptoCube. This leads the Guardians on a mission to find the Cosmic Seed. Along the way, Peter learns the truth of his father.

The Guardians were forced to fight the Chitauri lead by Korvac. They team up with Spider-Man and Nova to stop them from destroying Peter's home planet of Earth.

The Guardians learned that Avengers member Iron Man led Galactus to the home of the D'bari. The Avengers teamed up with the Guardians to keep Galactus from consuming Earth. However, the D'bari planet was unstable and knocked Galactus out.

They had to confront the Avengers, who had acquired an Infinity Stone. Falcon used their technology to send the Guardians back to their ship.

When the Avengers defeated Thanos, the Guardians arrived to take him into custody. There, they overcame their differences.


Star-Lord was initially voiced by Chris Cox on Ultimate Spider-Man, Avengers Assemble, and Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H.. When Guardians of the Galaxy began production Will Friedle took over the role on all the series except Spider-Man.

The initial design, as voiced by Cox, resembled the character's design from the comics. The latter version, as voiced by Friedle, resembled the version from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

In the Comics

Peter dated Kitty Pryde. She joined him as part of the Guardians and later used the name Star-Lord using similar technology.
