One day Peter returned home, bruised from trying to stop a bully. As he is washing up for dinner, his mother sees a bright light and two aliens emerge. Vowing to end the ‘Spartoi bloodline’, they kill Meredith. After Quill sees the aliens and his dead mother, he panics and runs. As the aliens pursue, he grabs a shotgun and manages to kill them with it. He then finds a mysterious device in a closet. Seeing a bright light he flees the house, just before the alien ship destroys it.
Quill is placed in an orphanage but escapes and eventually becomes a trainee NASA astronaut. An alien entity called the Master of the Sun eventually visits the space station that Quill and other astronauts are currently inhabiting, and offers the mantle of Star Lord (an interplanetary policeman) to a worthy candidate, Quill volunteers, but is rejected in favour of a colleague he once treated badly.
