(Peter Jason Quill) is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character, created by Steve Englehart and Steve Gan, first appeared in Marvel Preview #4 (January 1976).

The son of human Meredith Quill and Spartoi Json, Peter Quill assumes the mantle of Star-Lord, an interplanetary policeman. The character played prominent roles in the comic book storylines "Annihilation" (2006) and "Annihilation: Conquest" (2007), "War of Kings" (2008), and The Thanos Imperative (2009). He became the leader of the space-based superhero team Guardians of the Galaxy in the 2008 relaunch of the comic of the same name. He has been featured in a variety of associated Marvel merchandise, including animated television series, toys and trading cards.

Peter Quill (portrayed by Chris Pratt)is the half-human, half-alien leader of the Guardians of the Galaxy who was abducted from Missouri as a child in 1988and raised by a group of alien mercenaries called the Ravagers, where he adopted the self-proclaimed outlaw identity known as Star-Lord.

Introduced in Guardians of the Galaxy, as a young boy in Missouri, Quill witnessed the death of his mother from terminal cancer and resultantly left the hospital grief-stricken, where he was immediately abducted aboard an extraterrestrial star-ship. Twenty-six years later, he is a member of the Ravagers, the mercenary gang led by Yondu who abducted him as a child. Due to the period of time when Quill was abducted in, he is depicted with a reverence to 1980s pop culture, particularly from a cassette mix tape his mother left him that he periodically listens to on his Walkman. 

The film sets up his relationship with the rest of the protagonists who later team up to save the universe as the Guardians of the Galaxy.  He and the rest of the Guardians join with the Avengers to battle Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. He is scheduled to return in both Thor: Love and Thunder and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3..Avengers: Endgame and Avengers: Infinity WarGuardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2Guardians of the GalaxyAs of 2020, the character has appeared in four films:
