Marvel has revealed Guardians Of The Galaxy character Star-Lord – played by Chris Pratt in the movies – is a polyamorous bisexual.
Followers of the graphic novels didn’t know the fate of Star-Lord – also called Peter Quill – after a heroic death scene. But Guardians Of The Galaxy’s ninth comic book reveals he actually went to a parallel universe.
Once there the character falls into a relationship with a man and a woman. Star-Lord is shown embracing Aradia and Mors in an intimate bathing scene and he tells them ‘you’re my home’.
It takes Quill 12 years to accept their love as he initially hopes to return home to his love Gamora.
When he finally does, Mors tells him: ‘Congratulations, Peter Quill. The you-that-was is over. You’re newborn. And ready to learn our ways.’
The relationship subsequently lasts for over 100 years.
What isn’t yet clear is if Chris Pratt will portray Star-Lord as bisexual on screen in Guardians of the Galaxy vol 3. Director James Gunn is currently working on the film but it has no release date.
‘Everyone is entitled to love who they want’
Last year Pratt defended his church when transgender actor Elliot Page claimed it had ‘an anti-LGBTQ agenda’.
He went on Instagram Stories in February 2019 to deny Page’s claim.
Pratt said: ‘It has recently been suggested that I belong to a church which “hates a certain group of people” and is “infamously anti-LGBTQ.” Nothing could be further from the truth. I go to a church that opens their doors to absolutely everyone.’
He also said the church had supported him as he divorced Anna Faris despite Biblical teaching against the ending of marriage.
And he said: ‘It is what I have seen them do for others on countless occasions regardless of sexual orientation, race or gender.’
He concluded: ‘My values define who I am. We need less hate in this world, not more. I am a man who believes that everyone is entitled to love who they want free from the judgment of their fellow man.’
