Fictional character biography

Cuchulain appeared in Guardians of the Galaxy in 1993. As in Irish mythology, he is said to have been the greatest warrior Ireland had ever seen. He was born in the 1st century A.D., and was the son of the Irish Sun god, Lugh, and Dechtire, Conchobar Mac Nessa's sister. He grew to be a great warrior by the age of seventeen, and was proclaimed the guardian of the Book of Kells. While fighting Medb, the mythical warrior queen of Connacht, he was beheaded by her soldier. 3000 years later he is awakened by Shamrock, and together he, Shamrock, and the Guardians of the Galaxy defeat Samhain, a demon who is out to destroy the Book of Kells. Cuchulain then departs to explore the 31st century and restore Ireland.
