What's Their Sense Of Humor: Rocket uses a lot of humor to hide his own inner turmoil. He’s a big fan of sarcasm but also gets in a lot of digs at other people. Then, there are his understated rebuttals that he mumbles under his breath.
Do Other People Find Them Funny: Groot certainly seems to find Rocket funny, but given that most of Rocket’s humor is designed to insult other people, those around him don’t seem to enjoy it as much as audiences do.
What's Their Funniest Line: “Well, now I'm standing. Happy? We're all standing now. Bunch of jackasses, standing in a circle.”
Film: Guardians of the Galaxy franchise
Actor: Bradley Cooper
What's Their Sense Of Humor: Luis is full of energy and optimism, making his sense of humor infectious. Of course, his funniest lines are often his long-winded and detail-filled anecdotes.
Do Other People Find Them Funny: While his stories exasperate those listening, most people seem to enjoy Luis’s jokes.
What's Their Funniest Line: "I wish I had a suit. Even with, like, minimal powers. Or even just a suit. With no powers."
Film: Ant-Man franchise
Actor: Michael Peña
What's Their Sense Of Humor: Scott Lang has an adorkable quality, and his humor often manifests when he’s over his head. But he also throws out some pretty good lines in between being the universe’s punching bag.
Do Other People Find Them Funny: A number of people - including Hank (and often Hope) - find Scott annoying, but he’s too nice to really offend anyone. If nothing else, Cassie thinks he’s funny.
What's Their Funniest Line: [When Luis suggests whistling to blend in] “No, No whistling! This isn’t The Andy Griffith Show.”
Film: Ant-Man franchise
Actor: Paul Rudd
What's Their Sense Of Humor: Korg is even more aloof than Thor and even more good-natured than Spider-Man, so his humor is both sweet and unassuming.
Do Other People Find Them Funny: Thor is definitely amused by Korg, and it’s possible Miek is, though it’s hard to read him.
What's Their Funniest Line: “Well, I tried to start a revolution but didn't print enough pamphlets, so hardly anyone turned up.”
Film: Thor: Ragnorak
Actor: Kevin Michael Richardson
