This is the original Star-Lord. Introduced in Marvel Preview #4 (1975) by Steve Englehart, Steve Gan and Bob McLeod, Peter Quill was born during an unusual astronomical phenomenon when many of the planets aligned. Seeing no resemblance, the man who believed he was Quill’s father angrily accused his wife Meredith of infidelity and attempts to kill the infant but died of a sudden heart attack. Quill was then raised by his single mother.

One day Peter saw an Ariguan spaceship land. He went to get his mother who was killed by the aliens after they discovered them. When he told the police aliens had killed his mother, no one believed him, and he was put in a state orphanage. He ran off when he was fifteen and eventually became a trainee NASA astronaut. When the alien entity called the Master of the Sun visited the space station that Quill was stationed at and offered the mantle of Star Lord (an interplanetary policeman) to a worthy candidate, Quill volunteered, but was rejected in favor of another astronaut.

Quill was outraged, and NASA ordered his return to Earth and discharge for his conduct. Peter, however, stole a scoutship, and on returning to the space station took his colleague’s place. Quill was then chosen to become Star-Lord, with the Master of the Sun first creating an illusion in which he was able to find and kill the aliens that murdered his mother to free him of his past. Equipped with a sentient vessel called “Ship”, Quill commenced his role as Star-Lord.

Few people realize that this version of Star-Lord and the one currently running in the comics aren’t the same person. This is mostly due to the fact that many of the 616 version’s back history has been changed to be similar yet different to this version, mostly to match the MCU version of the character. However, this version would receive a figure as a “First Appearance” version as a Walmart exclusive.
