Yondu Udonta
The Outside Chance - Yondu Udonta
Who is he?: If you’ve seen Guardians of the Galaxy, you are already well aware who Yondu Odonta is. While his portrayal in the movie is quite a bit different than the comics, the character is somewhat of a cross between Jabba the Hutt and Boba Fett – he’s the box of criminals as the leader of the space pirate crew the Ravagers, but also kind of a solo badass with his whistle-controlled arrow.

Why could he be Star-Lord’s dad?: As we learn at the end of the film, Yondu originally picked up young Peter Quill from Terra after being hired by Peter’s dad… but what if that was a lie and Yondu actually sent himself? Mirroring some of Peter’s mom’s last words, the blue, mohawk-ed alien describes himself as being pretty as an angel, and obviously there was some sort of reason that he stopped his crew from eating the human kid and never brought the package back to whoever actually gave him the mission. Perhaps at the very end he tells his number two Kraglin that Peter’s dad is a "jackass" because he’s still trying to hold on to his secret.

Why couldn’t he be Star-Lord’s dad?: This theory not only strays away from the comics in a big way, but also requires that Yondu is doing quite a bit of lying to absolutely everyone around him. There is also the fact that Yondu happens to be part of an alien race known as the Centaurians, and while they are certainly powerful, they’re probably not the biologically ancient race that provided Peter Quill with his extraterrestrial DNA.
