This is one of the most ludicrous things ever and fits perfect in Guardians corner of the MCU.

Totally agree. I mean considering the history of this team, it's completely within character and yet STILL so very strange and Stenako(sp).

... How the flying hell did that work?

Mourge,

If you think about it, it's not that hard. Kurt Russell's character IS a Cosmic entity, on par with Galactus.

So if Galactus can have kids...

Well, you've heard of tree hugging, right?

Like that but bigger.

Kren,

Kind of but not quite that, yes.


I still think it's a strange choice.

I...did not see that coming (well I knew about the Kurt Russell thing but not so much the Ego thing).

Shh!!! Not so loud! I don't think the rest of the internet heard you.

Dragon,

Actually it makes sense IF you think about who had control of the Infinity Stones/Gems first. The Celestials. They are the highest order of Cosmic Entities in the MCU (and in the comics too.)

Kurt Russell's character has (both in the comics and now I'm sure in this movie) gone toe to toe with various cosmic forces. So to me, it stands to reason that if Star Lord is able to wield the Power Stone, it makes perfect sense his father should be of that order.


Yeah, but there are plenty of cosmic beings who have a humanoid form.


Wait, what? Since when is Ego Star-Lord's father? His dad is J'son of Spartax. This is just no. I am fine with changes but what the heck? They have even been showing J'son in the Guardians of the Galaxy cartoon. I wonder if now they are going to cancel that series and make a second one for the movie, like they did with Avengers Earth's mightiest heroes. I let it go when they had Iron man create Ultron but this is just gross. This feels like the sort of thing that would be in that garbage Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H tv series.

Yes but some of them are kind of...big.

Jacinto, they already said on the outset that J'son and the Spartax will not have a role in this version of Star-Lord.

This however to me is perfectly fine. I think it will work.


Outset of what? I generally don't watch behind the scenes stuff. I prefer just to watch the movie.

Outset of saying "We're going to make another Guardians movie!"

As quoted by the director.

Maybe they will say Ego started as a humanoid species, and somehow evolved into a living planet. Like maybe he ingested something from Nowhere.

The reports I read from the panel made it sound like Ego created his Snake Plisskin body to do some exploring where a planet person may not be appropriate. Places like Earth women.

That was my understanding too. It's not so much the planet part of him mated so much as he fashioned a body for himself OUT of himself to explore humanoid life.

Thus Peter's mom and thus Star Lord.

"Yeah, that guy was a jackass."

That suddenly has a whole new context.

Well Ego can be a jackass. I mean he did try to kill Thor....once.

Yep, and at one point he had a rocket shoved up his backside that took most of his attention to control, too.

Wei,

True now he just moves with the power of his mind. I think.
