The Attack on Peter Quill was a three-sided conflict between Gamora, the combined forces of Rocket Raccoon and Groot, and Peter Quill.


The Ravagers are hired by a Xandarian merchant called the Broker to recover the Orb from the planet Morag. In an attempt to separate from the Ravagers, Star-Lord travels to Morag alone to recover the Orb. Quill retrieves the Orb and escapes from Korath the Pursuer.

Yondu Udonta orders the Ravagers to put a bounty on Quill's head which draws the attention of Rocket Raccoon and Groot. Quill travelled to Xandar to sell the Orb to the Broker. Quill informs him that Ronan the Accuser was after the Orb as well and the Broker refused to purchase it.


Star-Lord left the Broker's Shop and was attacked by Gamora who stole the Orb and ran. Quill used Electric Bolas to knock Gamora down and attacked her. Gamora kicked him aside and stepped on his arm to keep him from pulling his Quad Blasters.

Gamora pulled a knife but Rocket Raccoon jumped on her back before she could stab Quill. Gamora got to her feet and Groot grabbed her with his vine tentacles but Gamora broke free and threw Rocket across the plaza. Quill picked up the Orb and ran but Gamora threw her knife and knocked the Orb out of his hand and onto the lower level of the plaza.

Gamora jumped down and grabbed the Orb but Quill knocked her down. Quill took the Orb from Gamora and attached his jet boot attachment to her back which sent her flying across the plaza and into the fountain.

Groot came up from behind Quill and placed him in a large bag and began to carry him away. Gamora returned and attacked Groot with her sword, cutting his arms off. Gamora walked over to the bag to retrieve the Orb but Quill shot her with his Quad Blaster. Quill tried to run off but Rocket shot him with his Laser Cannon.

The Nova Corps arrived and several Star Blasters used their tractor beams to incapacitate Rocket and Groot. Corpsman Rhomann Dey cuffed Quill and took him and the others into custody.
