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: Peter Quill may have left Earth at a young age, but he’s a bro through and through - probably the result of being raised by people like the Ravagers. Therefore, his humor is either cocky bluster or dejected whining.

Do Other People Find Them Funny: No one seems to find Quill funny - except when he says his name is Star-Lord.

What's Their Funniest Line: “If I had a blacklight, this place would look like a Jackson Pollock painting.”

Film: Guardians of the Galaxy franchise

Actor: Chris Pratt

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: There are generally two modes to the MCU Spider-Man: quips while he’s fighting and gee-whiz befuddlement.

Do Other People Find Them Funny: Given that most of Peter’s jokes are either him being so earnest it hurts (and therefore, not meaning to be funny) or directed at evildoers, his audience is rarely receptive to his humor.

What's Their Funniest Line: “Oh, you're using made-up names. Um... I'm Spider-Man, then.”

Film: Spider-Man: Homecoming

Actor: Tom Holland
