DID YOU KNOW? Peter Quill's mother Meredith was impregnated when the planets of the solar system aligned in a particularly sexy way. Now, Meredith was married, but this guy failed to see his resemblance in the space baby and assumed his wife had cheated on him. He did not take this well, and tried to kill baby Peter, failing only because he had a heart attack at the last minute. Marvel retconned this before too long, because it's pretty messed-up. Instead, Meredith got knocked up by a humanoid alien named J'son from Spartoi, who leaves because his people are in a war with another alien race, and because it's too dangerous to take his new family. Thus he becomes an intergalactic deadbeat dad, leaving nothing behind for his son but his element gun.
