Comics Bio: (World unknown not 616)

Yondu exists in a different timeline than the normal Marvel universe.
Yondu is a member of a primitive alien race outside of Earth's solar system called the Centurians.   In the 31st century he comes into contact with time traveling human astronaut Vance Astro.  The two at first battle but end up joining forces to fight and escape the alien menace the Badoon.
The Badoon end up killing off all of the Centurians as well as pretty much all of the other races in the universe.  Yondu and Vance Astro join with the remaining survivors to form the first Guardians of the Galaxy.


Powers and Abilities:
Very good with arrows
As a Centurian he is slightly stronger and  more durable than a human.
Yondu is a nature mystic and is in tune with all natural life.  He can feel disorder in an environment and is thus a very good tracker.
He is also great with a bow and is perhaps even better than the human Avenger Hawkeye.  He can whistle in different pitches that effect the trajectory of his arrows thus allowing them to curve and turn around corners, or through crowds of people.


Marvel Movie Universe Story: 
Yondu will appear in the Guardians of the Galaxy Movie.  He is the only member of the original Guardians of the Galaxy set to appear in the film. He will be played by Michael Rooker who you likely know as Merle from Walking Dead.  Rooker has described his personality in the film as a "cad" a person who does not care about other's feelings.  However, he is an anti-hero in the film.


Pictures from the set below:

I certainly do not know all of the details of the Yondu and StarLord story in the upcoming movie but I do know the following:
StarLord's story in movie is that his Mother dies sometime in the 1980s.  StarLord is raised by a blue alien Yondu.  Yondu is under orders to take the boy somewhere but he forms a connection with him and decides to raise him instead.  Starlord is effectively raised in a tough environment by Yondu in space.  Part of the reason why Starlord's walkman is important to him is that it is one of his last connections to earth.

Yondu is the leader of group of alien gang like a group of bikers called the Reavers.

This Yondu does not seem be from the 31st century, and is not be a natural mystic.  He does use an arrow that he can control by whistling similar to his comic form.

Starlord's Father?
Yondu can not be Starlord's father because he says he makes a deal with Starlord's father.
He calls his father a "Jack Ass."

“He’s very much a kid at heart,” said Chris Pratt of his role as Peter Quill, aka Star-Lord, in early Guardians of the Galaxy press notes. “He’s never known his father, he’s sucked away into space just as his mother dies and is raised by a blue-skinned humanoid. He has spent all his life being told to toughen up and has a false sense of bravado as a result. But deep down he is lonely, and while he’s a guy traveling in space getting to do whatever he wants, he misses his family, his community, and through the course of the story he learns to care again and that there’s more to life than just taking and doing exactly what you want.” About that blue-skinned surrogate father of Peter Quill which Pratt referred to, it's of course Yondu, a Ravenger played by Michael Rooker in Guardians of the Galaxy. “It’s a beautiful story, a great uplifting story and I found the relationship between Quill and Yondu intriguing,” said The Walking Dead actor. “He went to pick him up from Earth and for some reason he decided not to take him where he was meant to go and raised him himself. He made a connection with him, and Yondu now enjoys the fact that Quill has the courage to do his own thing.”

Now thanks to Guard the Galaxy, check out some decent screencaps below and look out for more info.
