Marvel’s Newest Star-Lord is a Quacking Surprise!
The Marvel Universe has seen its fair share of unexpected twists and turns over the years, but the unexpected debut of a new Star-Lord in a recent Marvel issue has definitely turned some heads. As the leader of the Guardians of the Galaxy, Star-Lord has faced off against cosmic threats like Ego and the High Evolutionary, and has always made time to help those in need. However, a recent issue of Marvel has introduced a very different version of Star-Lord, one that nobody saw coming.
A Fresh Face in the Guard
As the newest member of the Guardians of the Galaxy, the new Star-Lord has certainly raised some eyebrows among fans. Making his debut with a playful jab about the camera adding pounds and removing feathers, this new Star-Lord is none other than the one and only Howard the Duck. Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will remember Howard the Duck from a post-credits scene in the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie. Now, as part of the character’s 50th anniversary, Marvel is releasing a series of “What If…?” alternate universe stories featuring Howard in unexpected and hilarious scenarios.
Celebrating the Character’s Legacy
In celebration of Howard the Duck’s 50th anniversary, Marvel has enlisted a talented roster of writers and artists to pay tribute to this unique character. From well-known names like Chip Zdarsky and Joe Quinones to emerging talents like Merritt K and Will Robson, a diverse group of creatives have come together to showcase the many facets of Howard’s legacy. With stories exploring alternate realities, team-ups with other Marvel heroes, and even a presidential campaign, these stories are a testament to Howard’s enduring appeal.
A Pioneer in Satirical Comics
Since his introduction in Adventure Into Fear #19 in 1973, Howard the Duck has been a pioneer in satirical mainstream comics. With powers like Martial Art Quak-Fu and Iron Duck armor, Howard may not fit the traditional superhero mold, but his sharp wit and unique perspective have made him a beloved figure in the Marvel Universe. Over the years, Howard has faced off against parody monsters, broken the fourth wall, and created countless Easter eggs for astute fans.

With a new Marvel issue hitting shelves on November 29th, fans can look forward to more wacky adventures from Howard and the Guardians of the Galaxy.
