Marvel Comics has confirmed that Guardians of the Galaxy space adventurer Peter Quill – also known as Star-Lord – is bisexual.

The character, who is portrayed by Chris Pratt in the big-screen Marvel Cinematic Universe, is shown in a polyamorous bisexual relationship in the latest comic book issue of the series.


Titled I Shall Make You a Star-Lord, Guardians of the Galaxy #9 sees Quill trapped for almost 150 years on a planet called Morinus.

While there, he befriends two humanoid beings, a female named Aradia and a male named Mors.

Eventually, after spending their first 12 years together, Quill starts a polyamorous relationship with the pair.

In the comic, Quill is depicted bathing with the couple in an intimate scene lit with the colours of the bisexual flag.

“It’s been over a decade. Time to accept the truth… Morinus is my home. You’re my home.”

“Thanks for accepting me, guys.”

Mors replies, “Congratulations, Peter Quill. The you-that-was is over. You’re newborn. And ready to learn our ways.”
