People underestimate the talking raccoon at their own peril…but it happens a lot
Abilities 56 + Skills 31 (62 ranks) + Advantages 26 + Powers 17 + Defenses 20 = 150 / 150
Since we’re throwing around anthropomorphic Marvel characters, I figured it was time for a little Rocket Raccoon. Rocket was pretty much a joke in the Marvel U for a while, but when he turned up in the Cosmic Marvel scene around Annihilation: Conquest, he was reinvented as a wise-cracking, smarter-than-he-looked, ass-kickin’, big-ass-gun wielding talking raccoon. And it worked!
Rocket is a great goon-sweeper and team player, being a gifted tactician and having his big ass guns to take down scores of mooks. Rocket and Groot have a great bromance going, too.
Rocket Raccoon was the "Guardian of the Keystone Quadrant", an area of outer space sealed off from the rest of the cosmos by the so-called Galacian Wall. Rocket was captain of the starship Rack 'n' Ruin, and he and his first mate Wal Russ (a talking walrus) came from the planet Halfworld in the Keystone Quadrant. Halfworld is an abandoned colony for the mentally ill where the animal companions were genetically manipulated to grant them human level intelligence and bipedal body construction for many to become caretakers of the inmates. Rocket was Halfworld's chief law officer ("ranger") who protected the colony against various threats.
The Story so Far:
At one point, Judson Jakes tried to steal the Halfworld Bible, but was thwarted by Rocket and the Hulk. Later, Lord Dyvyne abducted Rocket's friend Lylla, and Jakes began the Toy War. As the Toy War continued, Blackjack O'Hare teamed up with Rocket, and Rocket was reunited with Lylla. The Rack 'n' Ruin was soon destroyed, as Judson Jakes and Lord Dyvyne teamed up to kill Rocket Raccoon. Rocket Raccoon and his friends cured the Loonies of their mental illnesses, as Judson Jakes and Lord Dyvyne were apparently killed. Rocket and the animals as well as the robots left Halfworld and took off into space for their own adventures. Some time later, Rocket was revealed to have been a laboratory subject on the Stranger's planet, and escaped his captivity there.
Rocket Raccoon resurfaced as a member of the team chosen to accompany Star-Lord on his mission to stop a Phalanx infiltration of the Kree homeworld. Rocket is depicted as a gifted military tactician who is also fearless, loyal, and insightful. It is also heavily implied that he has a case of obsessive compulsive disorder.[Rocket's trademark rocket skates are absent.
Rocket joins the new Guardians of the Galaxy at the behest of his friend Star-Lord. It is he who suggests that the team adopt that moniker after hearing it mentioned by Major Victory. Later on, when the team almost disbands and Peter Quill disappears (sent into the Negative Zone by Ronan), Rocket keeps the team alive, and brings in Groot as member, as the two had become great friends. Rocket takes over as leader until they rescue Peter, and saved the Earth from an alien invasion.
When the team tries to halt the growing War of Kings, Rocket decides to lead the portion of the team assigned to make contact with the Shi'ar. However, they are unable to teleport into the Emperor Vulcan's flagship and have to be rescued by the Starjammers and Rocket's old friend Ch'od. They are able to bring back the rightful queen of the Shi'ar, but she is killed after Rocket departs, much to his horror.
After the Guardians disband, Rocket Raccoon takes up a normal job with Timely Inc. He and Groot were reunited and tricked into returning to Halfworld: here, he found out his memories of the place were mostly half-truths and deliberately crafted fake memories. In reality, Jakes and Blackjack O'Hare had worked with Rocket in providing security at Halfworld Asylum for the Criminally Insane; Doctor Dyvyne had been Head of Psychology there; and both the anthropomorphic animals and the automaton clowns were deliberately created to work at the asylum, as their appearance would calm the inmates. The crises that Rocket half-remembered had been caused by the psychic supervillain the Star Thief, who had been admitted as an inmate and used his psychic powers to turn the inhabitants against each other. Rocket had turned the warders into a biological "key" to keep Star-Thief locked up, and deliberately altered his mind and left Halfworld so it could never be opened - but he was tricked into returning by the Thief, whose mind had escaped into the asylum after his host body died. Rocket, with his friends’ help, ended up eliminating the threat and returned to the reformed Guardians of the Galaxy.
Rocket is a wisecracking raccoon that has a surprising skill for tactics and marksmanship. His innovation has saved the team on many occasions.
Friends and Foes:
He is good friends with Star Lord and his current and former Guardians teammates, but he is closest to Groot. He seems to have figured out Groot’s language, translating for him on many occasions.
It’s not known why, but he seems to have run afoul of Lobo in the past and The Main Man seems to want to frag him.
