A new theory suggests that Ego from Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is still alive somewhere in the MCU. MCU fans rejoiced when they got to see their favorite team of misfits going on another adventure. Once again, James Gunn did not fail to impress us with his direction. This time, Vol. 2 focused on Chris Pratt’s Peter Quill’s true origins. As explained in Guardians of the Galaxy, Quill was said to be half-human and so much more than that. It was later revealed that he was the son of a Celestial called Ego – one of the many reasons why he was able to hold the Power Stone for that long. Even though Ego was killed by the Guardians, a new theory suggests that he is still alive and still lurking in the MCU somewhere.
Ego from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Is Still Alive
MCU finally explained Star-Lord’s innate power to be one of the greatest warriors in the galaxy. The reason for that is his Celestial father – Ego. It was initially believed that Quill got his happy ending as he found his father. But Mantis soon revealed his evil plans which were further solidified by Yondu as well. After an epic battle sequence, Ego was killed by a bomb. But is he actually dead?
Celestials can die, as we’ve seen with the floating skull which is now called Knowhere. But with the Eternals on its way, it could be true that Ego (Kurt Russell) is well and alive in the MCU. It’s possible that he made a plan for himself to survive while the Guardians hatched their plan. As explained in Guardians of the Galaxy 2, he placed parts of himself on many planets in his years of travel. So, the theory actually holds weight as it suggests that he could have transformed his mind into those seeds.
The theory further hints at Ego and his more offspring. As explained by himself, he had no offspring and Peter could be just another in the line. So, after dealing with Peter, he could have transferred his consciousness to his other offspring who might possess the same powers. Either way, he may have survived because killing a Celestial with a bomb is too easy and not plausible. Now, with the Eternals introducing the Celestials, Ego may just get another chance to shine.
