Star-Lord Respect Thread

He's the leader of the Guardians, savior of the stars, his girlfriend is a space ship, and he still doesn't have a respect thread??? Time to change that.

I'm just getting started, I have hundreds of scans I'm organizing, and am going to start collecting them here every chance I get. It will take me a while to get this up to date (like some of my other respect threads still), so be patient and check back often. I've been wanting to do this one for a long time now and I think it will be one of the better one's I've done when it's finalized.

Star-Lord

No Caption Provided

Marvel Now and Brian Michael Bendis threw a big wrench in a lot of Star-Lord's origins, and anyone who has been a big fan of classic cosmic Marvel is more then a little upset, lol. Marvel came up with a pretty lazy explanation that basically said anything that doesn't work with modern continuity, was part of an alternate universe Star-Lord. So all of his feats are still real, but some minor details have been changed. For example, he received the element gun from his father instead of the Master of the Sun, but he did meet the Master of the Sun and received the rest of his powers from them. Also, the term Star-Lord refers to him being heir to the Spartoi empire, instead of the title given him because he is powered by a star, has a ship that's a star, and is savior of the stars. Anyways, take a lot of his back-story with a grain of salt, and if you see things in this thread that doesn't make sense, just go with it. lol. A big thing I know that will be confusing, is that Star-Lord has regained his former powers in Marvel Now, but has not demonstrated that he can fly, Ship does not talk to him, and and he doesn't take advantage of any of his other super powers. Whether this is because he is keeping it a secret from the rest of the universe, or it is more laziness on Marvel's part to give us a decent answer is still unexplained. Hopefully this will be remedied when his return from the Cancerverse is explained, where he is re-united with Ship. Sorry for the wordy introduction, but I think a lot of people who are just getting into the Guardians and haven't had the pleasure of reading his classics would be very confused without this.

@daredevil21134: Normally he's a one night stand type of dude

How close are him and Richard Rider

Very close. I would say there relationship is similar to Iron Man and Captain America or Batman and Superman. During Annihilation Nova was the leader of the United Front, commanding pretty much the entire universes combined forces that included the Kree, Skrulls, Guardians and all former Heralds of Galactus. He was the leader on the ground commanding the forces but Star Lord was the brains behind it all being the strategist.
