    CELEBRATE 10 YEARS OF WATCHMOJO WITH OUR SPECIAL EDITION MAGAZINE, LINKS BELOW! Who is Star Lord's Dad? Guardians of the Galaxy's Peter Quill has a very mysterious past, and while we know his mother was a human from Earth, most people know very little about his father. In the comic books, his father is an alien named J'Son who came to Earth by accident, and no Yondu is not Peter Quill's father in the movies. In the films, his father is a different character entirely, that being Ego, the living planet, played by Kurt Russell. So join WatchMojo as we explore the comic book origins of J'Son, aka Peter Quill's father.

    When Ego explained his origin, I couldn't help but think of a Boltzmann brain.

    A Boltzmann brain is a hypothesized self-aware entity that arises due to random fluctuations out of a state of chaos.

    Is there a chance that Ego was impersonating Peter's biological father to just get what he wants from Peter and this one is the real one thinking his son is dead and the uncle hired Ego to kill them both?

    ***SPOILERS***If you have not seen guardians of the galaxy 2 yet, skip this comment. Ok, good.
    I thought it was well done the way they built up Ego. I mean, generally, Ego is basically depicted as a giant ball with a face and a goatee. But, the way they gradually introduced the whole idea of Ego over the course of the movie, by the time you actually see the face, it doesn't seem completely out of left field.
