Spoiler alert: this review reveals a plot twist
So far, Marvel/Disney’s interlocking cinema universe has relied on long-running, well-established heroes like Thor, Iron Man and Captain America – all with name recognition outside the comics ghetto.

On planet Earth in 1988, young Peter Quill (Wyatt Oleff) sits in the waiting room of a hospital, listening with headphones to "Awesome Mix Tape no. 1" on his Walkman. His grandpa (Gregg Henry) comes out and gets him so he can say goodbye to his mom, who is dying of cancer. His mom gives him a present and tells him his father was an angel and that Peter is just like him. She asks for his hand, but he's too scared to take it. Just then, she dies. The distraught Peter runs outside and is abducted by a spaceship.
