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

1 Answer 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.
