"And Quill, your ship is filthy."
"Oh, she has no idea. If I had a blacklight, this place would look like a Jackson Pollock painting."
"You got issues, Quill."
Gamora, Peter Quill, and Rocket Raccoon[src]

The Milano was an M-class spaceship belonging to Peter Quill, which he used during his escapades as the space outlaw Star-Lord. It later became the main spacecraft used by the Guardians of the Galaxy, until it was severely damaged by a quantum asteroid field, and abandoned on Berhert unrepaired. It is succeeded by the Benatar.


Early History

The vessel known as the Milano was one of the M-Ships used by the Ravagers. These ships were used for scouting and hunting purposes.[1]

Star-Lord's Ravager Career

"I've been flying this rig since I was ten years old."

As Star-Lord, Quill used the Milano since he was ten years old for looting and piracy,[2] establishing his name as an intergalactic criminal.[1]

Quest for the Orb

Battle of Morag

Star-Lord decided to obtain the Orb for himself so as to get rid from Yondu Udonta's Ravagers, so Quill arrived at Morag on the Milano. He eventually was attacked by Korath the Pursuer who tried to kill him as he was looking for the Orb, too. Quill used the Milano to escape among chaos going on Quill is startled by Bereet who he forgot was on the ship then went ahead to Xandar, where he planned to sell the mysterious artifact.[1]

Escape from the Kyln

"Yeah! There it is. Get my ship. It's the Milano, the orange and blue one over in the corner."

When Quill obtained the Orb, the Milano transported Quill to Xandar to sell it. After his arrest, the Milano was impounded by the Nova Corps to the Kyln. The Guardians of the Galaxy later used it to escape.[1]

Skirmish on Knowhere

The Guardians used the Milano to travel to Knowhere. When Drax the Destroyer called Ronan the Accuser to Knowhere, and Quill and Gamora were abducted by the Ravagers, Rocket Raccoon, Groot, and Drax used the Milano in an attempt to free their partners.[1]

Battle of Xandar

"Rocket will lead a team to blow a hole in the Dark Aster's starboard hull. Then, our craft and Yondu's will enter."

In the Battle of Xandar, Quill, Gamora, Groot, and Drax used the Milano to enter Ronan's ship, the Dark Aster. In the process, the ship was severely damaged.[1]

"We tried to keep it as close to the original as possible. We salvaged as much as we could."
"Wow. I...Thank you."
Rhomann Dey and Star-Lord[src]

Afterwards, the Nova Corps rebuilt the Milano for Quill as repayment for saving Xandar.[1]

Escape from the Sovereign Fleet

"Look at this! Where is the other half of our ship?"
"My ship."
"Either one of you could have gotten us through that field, if you had flown with what’s between your ears instead of what’s between your legs!"
Gamora and Star-Lord[src]

The Milano was used to transport the Guardians to the planet Sovereign to fight the Abilisk. The Guardians used it again to transport Nebula to Xandar to collect the bounty on her head. It was engaged in a massive space battle with the Sovereign's Omnicrafts, where the ship was badly damaged, causing it to "jump" to the planet Berhert where it crashed.

Rocket Raccoon and Groot stayed behind to repair the Milano when the rest of the Guardians traveled to Ego's Planet with Ego and Mantis. Rocket was never able to finish the repairs with the Milano, however, when he was attacked by the Ravagers who took the duo away on the Eclector.[2]
