Guardians of the Galaxy: Are Star-Lord and Mantis brother and sister?

Peter might take umbrage with Drax saying “This gross bug-lady is my new friend!” in retrospect.

No, the next installment of Guardians of the Galaxy isn’t being written by Jerry Springer — but we found the following information to be pretty captivating (and possibly expository) nonetheless. It all started when actress/model Jennifer Sharp posted the following on IG:

However, a key hashtag has since been removed as of the time of this writing. As you can see from this image posted by Reddit user Yashselokar:

Guardians of the Galaxy: Are Star-Lord and Mantis brother and sister?

Namely, #mantismom. If this is Mantis’ mother — that makes Peter and Mantis (half)brother and sister, right? Not necessarily, according to Guardians of the Galaxy/Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director James Gunn:

Ego being Mantis’ father would make the latter’s indentured servitude a little strange in retrospect, so James Gunn leaning towards Mantis’ parentage being of a different origin is somewhat relieving in that sense. Still, where are the pictures of the other models used for Ego sowing his wild oats across the galaxy?


Are we reading too much into this information? Or are Peter and Mantis actually brother and sister and James Gunn is simply trying to keep things hush-hush? Let us know in the comments.
