Guardians of the Galaxy

Question: Why is Ronan able to hold the Infinity Stone? Isn't he a mortal like Peter?

1

Answer: As a Kree, he has superior physical and mental strength that allows him to briefly hold the Infinity Stone, just as Peter held it briefly. But if he had held it longer he would have been destroyed, although he would be able to hold it longer than most. This is why he was trying to embed the stone into his Cosmi-Rod.

Question: Is the movie supposed to have any connection with the Avengers? Is Xandar one of the nine realms? Does the orb have anything to do with the power of the Tesseract?

Chosen answer: Each realm is actually more of a dimension than a single world. So Xandar would be part of Midgard. The orb is the housing for one of the Infinity Gems. The Tesseract is also an Infinity Gem. The stone in Loki's scepter and the Aether from Thor: The Dark world are two others. All 6 gems can be combined on the Infinity Gauntlet which enables the user to do whatever he wishes just by thinking about it. Wielded by Thanos, among others, in the comics.

Question: Where did Star Lord get AA batteries for his Walkman?

Answer: Likely he didn't, but instead was able to use an alternate power source that he found or was introduced to during his time in outer space.

Question: The Collector was already a holder of the Aether (reality stone). Once the Orb destroyed the majority of his place, where do you think he hid the Aether?

Answer: It's unlikely that the place on Knowhere is the only location he has. He could easily have moved it to another.

Guardians of the Galaxy mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Quill and Gamora first meet and get into a fight, Gamora grabs the Orb Quill is carrying and runs. Quill throws a sort of laser-based "lasso device" that snares her legs and causes her to fall. She pulls it off, and immediately in the next shot, it's vanished from the ground between cuts. It also had mechanical components, so even if the laser vanished, the mechanical pieces should still be on the ground.

Trivia: The planet the orb is found on is called Morag. In the comics Morag is the first leader of the Kree, whose actions started the eon long Kree/Skrull war.
