In this first look on Avengers: Infinity War, we see the actors of Peter Parker/Spider-Man and Peter Quill/Star-Lord standing right next to each other:

Given this, I would like to know: did these two ever meet in the comics?

    They've met in the Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon, at least: comicvine.gamespot.com/…

  • Although Spider-Man is on the cover of issue #1 of Guardians Team-Up Vol 1, and Quill appears in these issues, the individual issue pages list only Spider-Woman, not Spider-Man. So unless someone owns these issues and can check, this doesn't seem like it fits the bill.

  • Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 4 #14 is more promising – it lists both Star-Lord/Quill and Spider-Man as characters, but they both appear in flashbacks, and I don't know if they appear in the same flashbacks – again, if someone has it, they could check.

In Guardians Team-Up #9 opens with Peter Quill going after Spider-Man to recover his father's gun. It turns out the gun was stolen by another character disguised as Spider-Man and they team up.

    Do they go where the riverboat sails tonight? Is there fighting there? Does the company need men? Commented Oct 27, 2018 at 11:02

@Jack's answer is the most accurate as Guardians Team-Up #9 (2015) is the only time Peter Quill and Spider-Man actually meet each other, i.e. talk to each other, act together etc.

However, there are two other instances of these two "meeting"... in a way.

  • As pointed out by @tobiasvl in a comment1, Guardians of the Galaxy #14 (2016) has a long flashback of the Guardians (including Flash Thompson) rescuing Spider-Man from the Skrulls. When Spidey's brought to the Guardians' ship, he's out cold and they drop him back on Earth, so while Peter Quill somehow met Spider-Man, Spidey didn't meet Quill per se (as he has no recollection of what happened).

    The Guardians surround an unconscious Spider-Man

  • "Zodiac", the first arc of the 2012 Avengers Assemble run, has the Avengers teaming up with the Guardians of the Galaxy to defeat Thanos. In issue #8, everyone of them joins the fight on Earth for the final fight, including Star-Lord and Spider-Man. While they don't talk to each other, and the Guardians leave shortly after, you know... Beating Thanos' butt builds bonds?

    a lot of heroes surrounding a defeated Thanos, including Star-Lord and Spider-Man

1 As per their other comment, no, Spider-Man isn't featured in Guardians Team-Up #1 (2015), he's only on the cover.
