In Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, audiences are given the opportunity to reunite with some wonderful intergalactic characters, following them on a brand new adventure that takes them to fascinating new reaches of the cosmos and on a collision course with a number of fantastical new beings. Perhaps the best part about it, however, is the way in which it continues the individual arcs of the original heroes and gives them specific motivations -- and to fully grasp that element of the blockbuster, it helps to look back on where they have been.

Reflecting on what we've seen from Peter Quill, Gamora, Drax, Rocket and Groot so far, and analyzing where the story of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 starts up, we've assembled this feature to lay out the primary obstacle that is facing the heroes going into their latest big screen chapter. Let's break it down!

Star Lord Guardians of the Galaxy 2

Peter Quill: The Search Continues For His Dad

Peter Quill may walk like a human, and talk like a human, but the reality is that he isn't entirely human. As revealed by Nova Prime, Peter's father is a part of an ancient, uncategorized alien race, which is why he could handle the power of an Infinity Stone (albeit with the help of his friends). This bit of information in Guardians of the Galaxy launched a massive fan investigation into the identity of Peter's dad - and it's a mystery that is very much at the center of events in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

Peter isn't specifically looking for his paternal figure when we catch up with him in the new James Gunn movie, but it doesn't take long for them to cross paths. It turns out that saving Xandar has finally made Star-Lord a popular name, and it winds up bringing his father a.k.a. Ego The Living Planet, to him. Not only is that an awkward introduction, but there is also the conflict that it creates between the heroic human and Yondu -- who kept the young Peter away from his dad for decades.
