Given Starlord is of celestial origin, why did he start to disintegrate when holding an infinity stone in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1?


Peter's half human as well as Celestial.

Note that the Collector's servant girl essentially exploded almost immediately on grabbing the Power stone and Peter lasted a fair bit longer, long enough for the others to assist in a kind of power-sharing group (much like the Collector described to them).

    This is also connected to/foreshadowed by the reason he was able to stay alive in Space for so long as well, earlier in the movie.
