    That's so WTF, but in a good way. Ego being SL's dad fits with GotG's somewhat off-kilter and quirky tone.

    Are we sure it isn't a misdirect and they weren't having fun with the SDCC audience? I really thought it would be Starhawk or Adam Warlock. How does Ego have "a face like an angel"? Starlord's mom must have been on a lot of drugs, lol. That said, Ego is a "jackass" as noted by Yondu.

    I kind of wish they hadn't announced it. Should have saved that for the movie.

    How exactly did Star-lords mom have sex with a planet?

    He's Kurt Russell, so he must be able to take on a human form.

    I did a double take when I read that. I think there's DEGREES of lunacy you can get away with, and this feels a bit too crazy. Or more like trolling, really.

    This is why I'm worried about GotG 2 without Perlman

    There is no way they could have kept it a secret for long in this day and age.

    I don't think anyone called this .

    But it does fit with the kind of style of craziness and messed up stuff that has made the movie Guardians the movie Guardians, so it's not all that surprising.

    I am kind of wondering how he'll look in Living Planet mode...

    Ego can form humanoid like bodies from the larger planet mass, right? Seem to remember that from the comics, but I am sure the creative team have lots of surprises up their sleeves. Very cool and imaginative answer to who Starlord' dad is.
