In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, did Star-Lord ever go back to earth, following his capture by the Ravagers?

He had his own space ship, The Milano, so he is presumably capable of returning to earth.

If he doesn't go back, is there any reason why he's prevented from or chooses not to, even for a visit?

In the comics, everyone was prevented from interfering with earth, but I don't think there's any reference to this decree in the film.

    Doubtful that he really wants to anyways. His mother seemed to be the only person he really cared about prior to the events of GotG1. – phantom42 May 18 '16 at 12:50

    It would explain the presence of the cassette player in his ship – Valorum May 18 '16 at 12:51
  • @phantom42 What about his grandfather? – Rogue Jedi May 18 '16 at 12:52

    @dasMetzger The immaculate conception refers to Mary's birth. You're thinking of the virgin birth. But a good point, none the less. – Rogue Jedi May 18 '16 at 13:12

    No one implies that Peter was a virgin birth either, just that his father is not Terran or anything else the Xandarians were familiar with. – phantom42 May 18 '16 at 13:25

This certainly is not canonical and certainly not definitive, but there are few clues as to why I think he has been back to earth.

  • Has a wood paneled tape player that is not the one he was listeniing too when he was abducted.
  • References Pulp Fiction and Jackson Pollack
  • Peter's Ship has other earth things that are too many to keep in a backpack.

However, it certainly is not beyond the realm that Yondu collected those items with his trip to earth and gave them to Peter. Or that Peter could have picked up some sort of broad cast that showed him the culture over the last 20 years.

  • When does Peter Quill reference Pulp Fiction? – Dr R Dizzle May 19 '16 at 9:57

    @DrRDizzle , I am assuming when he talks about the "shinny new suitcase" in this clip, that he is referring to Pulp Fiction as the other statements he say in that same line describing the orb also reference difference movies.("Ark of the Covenant" and "Maltese Falcon-esque vibe") Go to 1:37, themoviebox.net/5246 – KyloRen May 19 '16 at 10:36
