      This video right here is proof that people don't care if the characters look like their comic book counterparts, act like them, or even have the same origin as them.  They only care that the movie is "good".
      And that's fine, as long as people will just admit it, and I don't have to hear another argument about how "that's not what they're like in the comics".

      Peter Quill: Hell yeah, he's cool.
      Yondu: I'm Mary Poppins, y'all!

      the best part of the movie

    What? no mention of Rocket Raccoon's home planet, Half World, his wife or other equally awful/unworkable enemies and why the movie would want to avoid bringing those details up, ever? (The fact Rocket Raccoon and his people were created to staff of the galaxy's biggest mental asylum is still a nifty detail.)
    I cannot give this video a thumbs up in good conscience...

    UUUHH at the end of part 1, on the Vol.2 tape, peters mom leaves him a message calling him star lord, no doubt a nickname she called him his whole life. WTF all the production of this video and that gets missed?

  • Gear Kijjaroenvisal

    Quill's father wasn't the emperor of Spartax at the time of meeting his mother, he was the heir, or their Starlord. Hence how Quill got the name.

  • ᕼᑌᗰᗩᑎ ᖴᗴᒪᒪᗩ

    Forgot to mention that for a time Ben Grimm/Thing, Flash Thompson/Agent Venom and Tony Stark/Iron Man were members of the comic team as well as the X-Men's Kitty Pryde taking over as Star-Lord and leader when Peter was crowned King of Spartoi. In the comics his father was the exiled J'son, Prince of Spartoi aka Mister Knife and quite an asshole. In the movie it's Ego aka The Living Planet (Why they made that change is baffling.)
    There are a lot of characters not mentioned like Mantis, Moondragon, Angela, Nova, Jack Flag, Adam Warlock and does everyone remember the cute puppy in the NASA spacesuit? That Cosmo, and he was a member too.

    Love your videos WatchMojo, but sometimes you miss out on the most clear as day information that's almost impossible to miss. At the end of the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie when Peter is reading the note he got from his mom that he never opened, she literally calls him her "little Star-Lord", thus where he got his name from. Not really difficult to find...

    to 6:50 Peter Quill actually got "Star Lord" from his mother as she used to call him like that. At least in the movie

    you guys at Mojo never pay attention to anything. the movie describes star-lords Origins perfectly and where you got the title. His mother used to call him My Little Star Lord. This was not only a cute nickname for him but a hint do who his father was. even says that he was supposed to be delivered to his father implying that his father was some kind of space king. if you would actually listen and watch a movie instead of just judging the special effects and whether or not it's fit childhood dreams then you would understand what really is happening in a film.

    #2. Is kinda wrong, in the final scene before Peter gets Awesome Mix 2 his mom calls him her Star Lord which although isn't explicit, is kinda a hint at where his nickname originates.

  • Blake Swihart
    Blake Swihart 1 month ago

    You actually find out how Star-Lord got his name in the first movie. He kept that letter that his mom gave to him before she died and kept it with his Awesome-Mix Vol. 2. I'm pretty sure he'd opened it before he does in the actual movie and kept that nickname.

    In the film we actually do find out how he became starlord. When reading a letter from his mom she mentioned him as "my little starlord." It was what she called him in reference that his dad is from the stars.
