1/ Star-Lord, first house: earth
the opening chapter in the chronicles of Star-Lord
as he lashes out against the grim alien menace
that destroyed his past and determined his future

2/ sword in the star, dissertation
based on certain ancient stories
such as the epics of Homer and other myths and legends

3/ the sword in the star,
stave 1 : alas, the seeds of man
by Bill Mantlo and Ed Hannigan

Star-Lord is a master strategist and problem solver
who is an expert in close-quarter combat,
various human and alien firearms and battle techniques,
he has extensive knowledge of various alien customs, societies, and cultures,
and considerable knowledge about cosmic abstracts, such as oOblivion

as Star-Lord, Peter Quill wears a suit that grants augmented strength and durability
and the ability to travel through space
the character uses an "Element Gun", a special meta-pistol
capable of projecting one of the four elements (air, earth, fire and water),
Star-Lord shares a psychic link with his sentient space vessel, "Ship",
"Ship" is actually a sentient energy form, she most often exists in the form of a starship,
but can alter her structure at will, she can travel through air, space and water,
she possesses many of the conventional starship accessories,
including shields, energy blasters, advanced sensors, replicators
(able to form any kind of food, drink, etc.), and hologram projectors
she has proven capable of creating a human form
which she can then animate and use as a host,
even if completely destroyed, she is capable of restoring herself,
since her true form is her consciousness,
in addition, she takes on a number of feminine characteristics,
such as a mothering instinct for those she is partnered with,
she has felt deeper attachments, including love for her partners

"Ship" can create widgets—small, mobile droids able to scout out situations,
gather information and then return to her,
the full extent of "Ship's" abilities are unknown

during Star-Lord's battle with the Fallen One,
his element gun, suit and "Ship" were destroyed,
due to severe injury he was grafted with cybernetic implants
by doctors on the Kyln where he was sentenced,
the eye implant allows him to see all energy spectra
and the memory chip in his brain gives him 100% total recall

on the Kree world of Aladon Prime, Star-Lord's cybernetic implants were removed,
Star-Lord was outfitted with a Kree-issued heat-dampening espionage battle-suit,
which became the hallmark look for the Guardians of the Galaxy,
a battle helmet and a universal translator, all of which he still uses,
his battle helmet can analyze strategy data,
improve vision, and regulate oxygen in space

Star-Lord's chosen weapons are two Kree sub-machine guns
with various types of ammunition, including explosives

after escaping the Cancerverse, Peter acquires a new element gun(s),
but discards his armor
