I call it the "Expansion". It is my purpose, and now it is yours as well. Over thousands of years, I implanted thousands of extensions of myself on thousands of worlds. I need to fulfill life's one true purpose: to grow and spread, covering all that exists until everything is... me!
~ Ego revealing his true plans.
It doesn't need to be like this, Peter. WHY are you destroying OUR CHANCE??!!! Stop pretending you aren't what you are! One in billions, trillions, even more! WHAT GREATER MEANING CAN LIFE POSSIBLY HAVE TO OFFER?!
~ Ego to Peter.

Ego, also known as Ego the Living Planet, is the main antagonist of the 2017 Marvel film Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

He is a Celestial and the biological father of Star-Lord. He is an egotistical and omnicidal mastermind who desires to expand himself over the entire universe, which would mean the destruction of all life in it. Like Ronan from the first film, this film version of Ego is far more cruel, malevolent and an infinitely bigger threat here than his mainstream comic counterpart ever was. He is the second arch-nemesis of the Guardians of the Galaxy and Peter's most hated foe outside of Thanos.

He was portrayed by Kurt Russell, who also portrayed Stuntman Mike in Death Proof.

What Makes Him Pure Evil

  • Planned to expand himself all over the universe, killing countless beings.
  • Sired many children and killed them when they didn’t have his celestial gene.
  • Developed real feelings for Meredith Quill, but didn’t want to abandon his expansion plot, so he gave her the brain tumor that killed her so nothing can hold him back.
  • Enslaving Star-Lord, his son, as a living battery for the next thousand years the moment Star-Lord turned on him.
  • Tried to murder the rest of the Guardians of the Galaxy when Star-Lord attempts to stop him.


  • The love that Ego had for Meredith Quill looks like a disqualifying factor. However, this is not the case, because he treated this as nothing more than a distraction from his Expansion plan. Even killing his own children means nothing to him, because godlike beings like himself would not understand the suffering mortals do. Even then, that would not excuse all the other atrocities he’s done.
