A bounty is issued for Quill’s capture which attracts the bounty hunters Gamora, Rocket the Raccoon, and Groot. After being sent to jail, Drax joins the rest of Quill’s superhero group, the Guardians of the Galaxy. By the end of Vol. 1, Star-Lord learns that he’s a half-human, half-alien.

The superheroes from the Guardians of the Galaxy are back in Vol. 2 with the 2017 movie. The crew is contracted to protect valuable batteries owned by the powerful alien race, the Sovereigns. After preventing Gamora’s sister, Nebula, from stealing the batteries, Rocket stole some for himself. While the galactic superheroes flee to protect themselves against the attacks from the Sovereigns, Peter Quill meets his father, Ego. The team will return to face off against Thanos in Marvel Studio’s Avengers: Infinity War.
