Rocket Raccoon's Comic Book Origins Are Too Messed Up For The MCU

Rocket Raccoon’s origins are not for the faint of heart, nor are they common knowledge among even dedicated readers of Marvel Comics. The publication of Rocket Raccoon comics was sporadic at best until 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy made him into an A-lister, so there’s surprisingly little continuity behind the character - despite him having been around for decades. And what continuity does exist is about as weird as it gets. 

Rocket’s backstory has been hinted at in both Guardians of the Galaxy movies, but his full origin likely won't appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Rocket’s history in the Guardians comics includes toy factories, a cosmic asylum for the mad, an otter girlfriend, and a bounty of other incidents that would be too bizarre to translate to the big screen. Of course, his comic book canon also contains some of the greatest Guardians of the Galaxy stories ever told.
