I asked James Gunn, the director of Volumes 1 and 2, on Twitter and it turns out Rocket didn’t invent the device. In fact, he stole it (because it was expensive). Gunn also gave some insight to how it works. @CarrotLethal: Hello! Did Rocket create the repair tool he uses on the Milano or was it a standard tool? Thanks. @JamesGunn: He didn't invent ...

On her deathbed, Meredith tells Peter, "You're so like your daddy. You even look like him. And he was an angel. Composed out of pure light." Meredith's nickname for Peter is "My little Star-Lord," which Peter later takes as his code name. When Ego shows her his space seedling thing behind the Dairy Queen, Ego says that soon it will be all across the universe....

They are there, but the problem is that Bautista himself does not have large nipples, and they are located low and lateral as can be seen in the below photo: And, if you look closely in the below photo, you can see the protrusion of his left nipple breaking the line of the curve on his pectoral (left side as well, right side as you look at it): So, he has ...

Since we don't have access to scripts or anything, we'll just have to go at this unsourced, but it will make sense. What are Ego's powers when it comes to forms? We see clearly that Ego can change his form as he wills. He swaps from Kurt Russel to David Hasselhoff in a heartbeat. He also would've taken other forms to mate with all the other species as he ...


46

We have no reliable way to tell. Ego certainly claimed that the events at the end of the movie would mean that Peter was primarily human (and mortal, and non-glowing-ball-creating) at the end of the movie. Every on-screen act supports this - Peter is unable to do any of his Ego-like acts until he reaches Ego (the planet) and is taught how to use the ...

He abducted kids. We hear this "code" explained at least twice in the movie. First, Stakar (the Ravager leader) yells it at Yondu, telling him that, for all the crimes that Ravagers commit, "we don't deal in kids!". We know that Yondu kidnapped Peter from his family at the request of Peter’s father — it appears that the Ravagers have a rule against taking ...

He changed diorama for every one of his offspring he has shown it to. To change it is trivial for Ego. Why would he do that? To get better rapport with his child/ his current child he is showing it to. "You are special. This is the first form I ever chose, that exact form of your species. Your mother is the one I loved the most of all the women I've slept ...

The movie never says anything outright about other people abducting Ego's children, but I think it would be almost impossible for Yondu to have done it by himself. When Nebula and Gamora uncover the skeletons of Ego's children, the sheer number of them is staggering. It's an entire chamber of Ego's subsurface caverns packed head-to-toe with them. Consider ...

David Hasselhoff Character He is mentioned in the movie as Peter's idol and fatherly figure, however he never actually appears as himself. There is a scene though where once Ego gets annoyed at Peter's rejection, he mentions something like: I chose the appearance that would be best preferred to you. [transforms into David Hasselhoff] Would you have ...

A Celestial 1 The film informs us that Ego, Star Lord' father, is in fact what is known as a Celestial. This is not an official quote from the script but am almost 99% sure it's accurate Peter: A Celestial? Like a God? Ego: Small 'g'. Ego seems to find the need to distinguish between a God and a god. The below passage describes the plot of the ...


27

Yes. It wasn't hard to figure out to begin with; this is what a Watcher looks like: In addition, Lee was credited in the movie as "Watcher informant", and the only thing we see him doing in the film is relaying information to 3 aliens, who by deduction must be Watchers. Finally, James Gunn (the director) has admitted that the inclusion of The Watchers are ...


26

How does anyone know what a Celestial is? In the first film, Gamora knows that Knowhere is the severed head of an ancient celestial being. It's called Knowhere. The severed head of an ancient celestial being. Knowhere has been inhabited by a lot of people for centuries at least, so this must be common knowledge, and the concept of a "celestial being" ...


22

Whilst Ego said they were linked, he also had to wait for a second Celestial so he could power his plan. Just as the glowing centre of the planet was the celestial Ego, implies that Peter is a separate power source, like Ego, but perhaps not as strong. Ego having have millennia to access/build his power had easy access, whereas Peter had only just heard of ...


22

First off, no, there's no support for the idea that Yondu somehow inhabited Rocket's body in any source material that I know of. And more to the point, there's not much support in the movie for that idea either. The big mistake you're making, I think, is that you are missing the whole point of Rocket's speech during the funeral. When he says: "They came ...

An Abilisk 1 This new monster is an invention of the MCU and James Gunn. James Gunn originally released the concept art with the monster in the background without giving it a name, however after questions from a fan he confirmed that it is called an Abilisk. Currently the only source I can provide as hard evidence is the new LEGO set: The Milano vs The ...


19

He did it so that Peter and the others could relate to him. Don't forget that when he first appears, it isn't immediately apparent that he is a Celestial, or any being whose life spans longer than that of Peter. During his errands, Peter has met many alien races, most of which have a life span "similar" to that of humans: for all he knew (even knowing that ...

This is an old trope for super-intelligence. E.E. "Doc" Smith, writing in the late 1940s, attributed the ability to deduce a future event -- in great detail, from seemingly limited information -- to one such super-intelligence ("Mentor", the creator of the titular Lenses and recruiter of Kimball Kinnison in First Lensman, pub. 1950). This sequence in GotG2 ...

tl;dr It wasn't really his ship that did it, it was him; given his 'God-Mode' powers. IDDQD Well, Ego is a supremely powerful being, he's actually a Celestial. In a sense Ego has "IDDQD" or 'God-Mode' abilities with a bit of "IDKFA" mixed-in. As he explains to the Guardians, it seems to just be a thing that he can do: Gamora: You destroyed 1000 ships ...


15

This is paraphrased from when I saw the film last week. However, Ego's dying words to Starlord are: Ego: "Listen to me! You are a god! If you kill me, you'll be just like everybody else!" Peter: "What's so wrong with that?" Ego: "No!" This seems to suggest that Peter Quill's powers are tied to Ego's existence, and without Ego Peter will be rendered ...

Michael Rooker (Yondu) says the following in an interview with comicbook.com "It was a gig," Rooker said. "I was to pick up the kid and bring him to Ego, right? And I decided not to because I find out things about him that I don't really agree with and I don't like. Hence, my opinion of him as being a jackass! So, I keep the little guy and I like him. He'...

Ego says the following (emphasis mine): I had Yondu deliver some of them to me. It broke the Ravager code, but I compensated him generously. This could mean that Yondu was the only one collecting them and that Ego only had some of the children delivered, but considering how desperate Ego was to get a second Celestial for his plan, I think it's more ...


14

In addition to @Edlothiad's answer I believe when Ego changes from Kurt Russel to David Hasselhoff he says something like: I simply picked the form that would be most pleasing to you. Meaning he realised that it wouldn't make sense to Peter if he was still a young man or whatever other form he chose. He had to look like he was his father, meaning he had ...

Yes, music does exist off-earth. For example, in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, when Drax tells the story of how he first met his wife, he describes music that everyone was dancing to except her. This was his home planet, showing that other planets had their own musical traditions. It should also be noted that while some characters are perplexed by earth ...

Yes! Well, soon. In May 2017, a brand new comic book titled I am Groot will be published. Marvel explains: GROOT IN HIS OWN SERIES, SMALLER AND BETTER THAN EVER! When the Guardians of the Galaxy get caught in a wormhole, a smaller-than-normal Groot is separated billions of light-years away from the team. Falling to a planet below, Groot discovers he is ...

No. Ego is only Peter Quill's father in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Charles Xavier does not exist in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as X-Men movie rights are not controlled by Marvel Studios at the moment (instead, Fox). See What makes a movie part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe? for more information. As Adamant mentioned, Peter Quill's backstory in ...

According to the official Marvel comic character page for Ego, under the powers section, it says: Ego has vast mental powers that allow it to tap into energy sources such as the stars or absorbing other living entities and use that power for itself. It also has extreme telepathic abilities that are effective over interstellar distances. Thus it would ...

Yondu did not deliver Peter because he found out what happend to the other children: Starlord: "Guess I should be glad I was a skinny kid, otherwise you would've delivered me to this maniac." Yondu: "You still reckon that's the reason I kept you around you idiot?" S: "That's what you told me you old doofus." Y: "Well once I figured out what ...

Where did Yondu get his fins? Since the Yaka Arrow is Centaurian in origin, I think it can be assumed that Centaurians design and build the fins. Since Yondu is the only Centaurian we've seen he either had backups, or the new prototype was one of his own design. And why didn't other crew members steal them? As we see with Kraglin, it takes time to learn ...

The group is made up of members of the 1975 version of the team - either original or who joined at a later date. Yondu was one of the original members of the team. Stakar Ogord aka Starhawk, played by Sylvester Stallone Martinex T'Naga, voiced by Michael Rosenbaum Charlie 27, played by Ving Rhames Aleta Ogord, also aka Starhawk, played by Michelle Yeoh ...

Presumably it's supposed to be the case that he has some level of conscience regarding leading to serious insomnia. How that timeline is supposed to interact with Mantis's lifetime is another matter. But it could be that she could be very long lived, or that there have been others in the past. Or it's supposed to be that his insomnia is relatively recent. ...
