Chris Pratt's 'Guardians of the Galaxy' character Star-Lord is now bisexual, Marvel Comics confirms.
Star-Lord is revealed to be both bisexual and polyamorous in a new Marvel comics issue titled "I Shall Make You a Star-Lord."
In the new comic, Peter Quill enters into a polyamorous relationship with male and female humanoids on a planet called Morinus. The trio are seen embracing while bathing together in a ceremonial temple.
"It's been over a decade," the superhero says to the two humanoids, per Entertainment Weekly. "Time to accept the truth... Morinus is my home. You're my home. Thanks for accepting me, guys."
Fans reacted to the news with a mix of shock and praise. "When did lord become bi???" wrote one fan on Twitter.com.
Another user tweeted: "Star lord has a big bi energy so I'm glad he's being confirmed."
It's unlikely that Pratt's character will reveal his bisexuality in a future Guardians of the Galaxy film.
Elliot Page, formerly Ellen Page, previously accused Pratt of attending an anti-LGBT+ church.
"Nothing could be further from the truth," the conservative Pratt said on his Instagram Stories in Feb. 2019. "I go to a church that opens their doors to absolutely everyone."
Marvel Studios is fulfilling a pledge to introduce new LGBT+ characters toward a goal of 40 percent LGBT+ characters in its future films.
An upcoming film titled The Eternals will include Marvel's first openly ghey character played by Brian Tyree Henry.
"We want the movies to reflect the audience and we want every member of our global audience to see themselves reflected on the screen," Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige told io9 in April 2019.
