Origin Story:

Peter Quill (Starlord) was born Colorado USA to Meredith Quill. His father was Jason of Spartoi who met Meredith when his ship crash landed in Colorado. He left earth to protect her promising to return he however mindlocked her memories so she wouldn’t feel the heartache. She then married her childhood sweetheart Jake. When Peter was born Jake tried to kill him, suspecting he was not his son due to the lack of resemblance to both his mother and himself. Luckily for Peter, Jake suffered a fatal heart attack.After the war on his planet ended Jason asked his uncle to have Meredith and Peter brought to him but his uncle instead hired a crimelord to kill them both. At the age of 11, Peter witnessed the assassination of his mother as well as the landing of the ship.Jason was told his family had died but they did not kill Peter having just left after the one assassination. Peter grew up, swearing vengence and eventually went to work for NASA, he eventually made it into space and after a bunch of stuff it would take too long to write he became starlord.

Hal Jordan (Green Lantern) was born in Coast City to Martin & Jessica Jordan. He was the middle of three children. He grew up idolizing his father  who was a test pilot and at a young age saw his greatest fear when his father died  right before his eyes in a plane crash. He followed in his fathers footsteps and joined the US Air Force on his 18th birthday. Years later a dying alien who was a member of the green lantern corp crashed in California, his ring choosing Hal Jordan as his replacement due to his ability to face fear head on. He then inherited the mantle of green lantern, an intergalactic police officer in charge of serving and protecting sector 2814.
