Synopsis for "Tears for the World Called Heaven"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Marvel Spotlight Vol 2 #7.

Star-Lord decides to explore a world where the clouds are solid enough to be habitable by a race of winged people. He arrives in time to witness the angel-like beings casting a wingless man over the side of their kingdom and manages to rescue him from the fall. The man, Thorn, explains the ways of his world -- the wingless surface dwellers gain their wings by performing good deeds so they can ascend to the paradise in the clouds. Thorn perviously had wings, but had them revoked for daring to give the surface-dwellers a way to ascend to Heaven without earning their wings. He solemnly explains that though he was rescued, Shreen, the huntress from the clouds, will not rest until his original sentence is carried out. Star-Lord stays with Thorn in an effort to protect him and help him with his goal.

Over the course of three days, the other surface-dwellers gather to sacrifice their own progress towards their wings so help Thorn's grow back faster. When Shreen arrives, Star-Lord defeats her in battle, but she refuses his mercy as per their customs and kills herself. Thorn, also determined to observe their customs, tells Star-Lord he has to provide her burial and weep on her grave, but Star-Lord is unable to feel enough for someone that tried to execute his friend to shed any tears. Instead, Thorn decides to sacrifice himself by flying into the cloud's defense system -- a lightning storm. Star-Lord is finally driven to tears over Shreen's grave, mixing with the rain. In the wake of the storm, a rainbow stands as a beacon of hope in place of the bridge to the sky Thorn dreamed of building. Star-Lord leaves having learned much in regards to his own quest for ascension.

Star-Lord investigates the ruins on what seems to be an abandon planet. He quickly encounters a hostile environment; electric storms, earthquakes and wild winds which force him to seek shelter underground inside a "root-ball." Believing he's safe from the space storm outside, the root tentacles begin to attack him as the planet itself is a parasite which feeds off of flesh.

Synopsis for "Less Than Human"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Marvel Preview #18.

Star-Lord and Ship track the energy source of a weapon capable of destorying planets to Redstone, a small world where all advanced technology is controlled by its ruler and founder, Quan-Zarr. Star-Lord goes down into the primitive city to look for more information, and just when he finds some guards speaking of the weapon, lion-faced beastmen attack the guards looking for the same intel. Stealing a sword from a local woman named Sylvana, Star-Lord gets the guards' tape first. Sylvana chases after Star-Lord wanting her sword back, but when she finds out about the weapon, she insists on accompanying him to save her world.

According to Sylvana, Redstone was uninhabited before Quan-Zarr came and the Beastmen were invaders that appeared relatively recently, but they later learn the truth from the Beastmen: Quan-Zarr stole their ancestors' world and subjected them to genetic engineering experiments that transformed them into Beastmen. Now the few remaining Beastmen are intent on using the world-shattering Power-Rod to wipe out Quan-Zarr and all of Redstone's current inhabitants in revenge. Star-Lord, wanting to maintain his vow against killing, does not interfere as the Beastmen storm Quan-Zarr's stronghold and kill him. However to avert genocide, Star-Lord cannot stop himself from killing the last of the Beastmen before he uses the Power-Rod.
