The Spartoi hail from the planet Spartax in the Large Magellanic Cloud. From Spartax, they crafted a small Empire from the outlying systems, ruled by an Emperor.[2]

They are a race with a common ancestry to the Shi'ar. While they are not necessarily allies, they have attempted a union in the past and do not consider one another to be enemies.[3]

  • The Spartoi Empire of the Spartoi race from the planet Spartax was first mentioned as the homeworld of Prince Jason who was heir to the throne of the Empire.[4] This Spartax was located in the Sparta star system of the Large Magellanic Cloud[5] and this Prince Jason was intended to be a younger version of the Emperor Jason who ruled his empire from the planet Sparta and was the biological father of Star-Lord.[6]
  • A subsequent retcon by Brian Michael Bendis revealed that the biological father of the Star-Lord who was born on Earth-616 was actually King J'Son,[7] ruler of the Spartax Empire of the Spartax race from the planet Spartax.[8]
  • The fact that the Spartoi Prince Jason and the Spartax King J'Son could not possibly be the same person means that their respective planets, both named Spartax, could also not be the same.
