What’s similar is the name of the group that ties up to the original 1969 comic book that Major Vance Astro has founded. The current team was formed after the events of the Annihilations Conquest saga where one of the members would happen to be Rocket Raccoon a favorite among the characters in the series!
Rocket Raccoon is one of the members of the current team who originally appeared in Marvel Preview #7 (Summer 1976) and became popular due to the build-up of the Guardians of the Galaxy as well as the upcoming film in 2014.
The little rascal hardly not a pushover as Rocket is gaining a growing cult following due to his role in the latest comic book series in any random order here are FIVE things what makes him violently lovable!
He makes Tony Stark Not your favorite Marvel character.
When you go toe-to-toe with a talking raccoon you hear him say this before he kills you.
It was confirmed that he will be voiced by Bradley Cooper.
Not a complicated character to be made in a live action film (See a Raccoon with Machine Gun).
DC/WB is all like "Wonder Woman's too confusing for a movie!" and Marvel/Disney is all like "Here's a raccoon with a machine gun"— Brett White (@brettwhite) August 12, 2013
This might be premature but Rocket Raccoon has already TWO action figures. What’s better than ANY comic book character is that’s easy to count and collect!
Honorable mention to add why Rocket Raccoon in cool is he gets to have solo comic covers look definitely good!
Guardians of the Galaxy is set to be shown on August 1, 2014 from Marvel Studios to be distributed in the Philippines by Columbia Pictures.
