HistorySon of a human mother and an alien father, Quill takes on the cloak of Star-Lord, a kind of interplanetary police officer.
His origin is a combination of those of his classic counterpart and mainstream counterpart. At some point after becoming Star-Lord (in a manner similar to his classic counterpart), it was revealed that Peter's father was Jason of Spartax, the second son of the galactic emperor who acted as Star Lord before him. From there, Star-Lord met the Fallen One, former Herald of Galactus in the Kyln, and fought against Ultron and the Phalanx before creating the Guardians of the Galaxy to protect the cosmos. His adventures with the Guardians mirror his mainstream counterpart until being trapped in the Cancerverse with Thanos.
Star Lord, who had survived within the Universe of Spiritual Jewel, managed to recreate his body, escape from the Cancerverse and return to the Guardians of the Galaxy in a new costume similar to his first. Adam Warlock, who had been reborn once again, resurrected Drax, who had been killed by Thanos, using one of his evolutionary cocoons to heal and resurrect him.
After being warned by his father that the Council of Galactic Empires had decided that the Earth should be left untouched by all, the Guardians fought against a Badoon invasion of the earth. Peter managed to escape the Spartoi forces that followed, becoming a fugitive of the Spartoi Empire.

Elementunkinesis: Star Lord is a powerful elemental, able to handle the five cosmic elements of nature, these being earth, air, fire, water and life. At his will he can control every grain of sand in a desert and create a sandstorm capable of tearing flesh from bone, raise an entire mountain towards the sky, create missile-like rocky projectiles and stalactites, create animated constructs out of rocks, cause earthquakes and manipulate volcanic magma, create shields of rocky matter denser than diamond, and take on a rocky stone form that gives him super strength and virtual invulnerability.
He can also manipulate the air as desired, creating anything from a light breeze to a hurricane, creating blizzards, storms, lightning, rain, air balls and a vacuum thousands of meters wide, capable of stifling opponents. He can also assume the form of an air elemental.
Star Lord can also control fire as he pleases, raising a small flame to burn at hundreds of thousands of degrees Celsius, creating animated constructs of fire, extinguish fires with a thought, absorbing the full force of fire to gain super strength allowing him to lift or press fifty tons, designing bursts of flame and take the form of a fire elemental, and as such he's able to fly and perform the same feats as the Human Torch.
He can animate, control and manipulate water as desired, able to liquefy and take the form of either a water elemental or freeze into a giant ice elemental with superhuman strength, capable of handling the freezing cold at absolute zero like Iceman. In this form he can create ice waves, tsunamis and tidal waves of water (even on solid ground), bubbles of solidified water to entrap opponents, missiles of solid water which are denser than steel, and any other constructs of solid water.
Finally, in the manipulation of life, Peter can command animals such as birds, reptiles, and insects, plants, and micro-organisms, even commanding all the nature in a particular area to fight alongside him and his allies, forcing every creature to attack at his call. He can enlarge the size and strength of any animal, turning it into a gigantic beast, and can control and animate vegetable matter, twisting the timber in order to crush enemies with vines as hard as steel or bring forth beasts formed of ground matter similar to Ents (from "Lord of the Rings") to crush his enemies. Finally, he can take the form of any plant or animal and communicate mentally with any form of life.
Quill is also able to commune with the elements, calling on their elemental spirits to lend him his strength and absorb the power of the earth itself to maximize its power. He can transport himself using any of the elements, via waves of the earth or water, pillars of fire, whirlwinds, or by riding plants and animals and commanding them to the location of his choice. He can also create weapons such as swords, axes, spears, whips etc. from the five elements and transform his body only partially to create natural weapons like claws, poisonous fangs, thorns, etc.
