History

Subject 89P13 was a raccoon taken from Earth by an alien race to the planet Halfworld. After years of cybernetic enhancement and genetic alterations, he gained sentient intelligence and began calling himself "Rocket". While in Kree space, he encounters Groot in a prison and forms a strong bond with him. Both joined the Guardians of the Galaxy in a confrontation against Ronan.[1]

Visiting New York[]

89P13 (Earth-13122) from LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 001

Whilst visiting Earth, Rocket accidentally left his energy knife in one of earth's dumpsters. However, a passerby was able to retrieve it for Rocket, allowing him to avoid a scolding from Wal Rus.

Getting into an argument with Squirrel Girl about whether Squirrels or Raccoons were tougher, Rocket and nearby allies fought several Frost Giants to prove her wrong.

Getting into an argument with Wal Rus about whether or not giraffes could climb tall buildings, Rocket was provided photographic evidence they could, courtesy of Peter Parker, and conceded.[2]

Kang's Invasion[]

Fight on Xandar[]

Rocket, along with the rest of the Guardians of the Galaxy, arriving on Xandar to help the Nova Corps fight against Kang the Conqueror. Rocket and Groot stayed at Milano to take care of Kang's air forces, and in that, Rocket discovered Kang's technology that could make Groot age and rejuvenate instantly. After a fight against Eson, the Guardians saw Xandar being taken away by Kang. Rocket and the Guardians of the Galaxy arrived on Earth. Thinking they had responded to a distress call, Nick Fury told them they were late. However, the Guardians informed him that they had come because of Kang's Invasion. Before the Guardians can warn Fury, Kang arrives and destroys the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier, before taking Manhattan into Chronopolis.

The Quest for the Nexu Fragments[]

After Kang destroyed the Nexus of All Realities, Cosmo the Space Dog sends a message to Avengers Mansion, but the signal is too weak, so the Guardians head off to find something to help. This takes them to the Old West. While in a saloon, Star-Lord gets into a fight, and Gamora saves him. Star-Lord and Groot then go off while the rest of the Guardians are attacked by M.O.D.O.K., who has become the local sheriff and has the piece of tech they need. They team up with Old West Captain America and chase M.O.D.O.K. off. However, during the battle, Groot was captured by Captain Corbett, and in trying to free him, Rocket was also caught. Star-Lord helps Kid Colt and Arizona Annie take down Captain Corbett along with M.O.D.O.K. The Guardians, now in possession of the tech they need, return to Avengers Mansion.

After the Avengers locate the shards with help from Heimdall, the Guardians head toward Hala, where they fight against Ronan the Accuser and the Kree for the Nexus Shard, which Ronan planned to use to overthrow Kang. However, they are stopped by the Supreme Intelligence. The Guardians, under the control of Supreme Intelligence, battle Black Bolt and Medusa, but the two manage to free them from the villain's control. The Guardians ask the Inhumans for help against Kang, to which they agree.

Fight Against Kang[]

After building a machine to bring Knowhere to Chronopolis, Rocket activates it, however, Kang knew about the heroes' plan and brought Ego from the portal. However, the heroes manage to prevent the planet from arriving alive and successfully bring Knowhere.

Rocket was one of the heroes who later fought Kang's army for Captain America, Doctor Strange and Captain Marvel to enter Kang's tower. After Kang was defeated by the superheroes and turned into a baby by Ravonna, Groot and Rocket were in charge of taking care of baby Kang.[1]

Facing Ego[]

The Guardians of the Galaxy were hired by the Sovereign to protect their anulax batteries from an approaching abilisk. They succeeded, but the batteries were to tempting for the kleptomaniac Rocket, and he pocketed some to keep for himself. After meeting with the Sovereign and receiving their payment, a captured Nebula, the Guardians took off in the Milano.

The Guardians manage to survive the attack and meet with Ego, who takes Quill, Gamora and Drax to get to know him better. Rocket stayed behind with Groot and Nebula, and would soon be captured by the Ravagers who rioted against Yondu.

Rocket, Groot, and Yondu were taken back to the Ravagers' ship, the Eclector, where they were humiliated and prepared to be killed. However, with the help of Groot and Kraglin, a mutineer who regretted standing against Yondu, they were able to acquire a prototype control fin so Yondu could use his yaka arrow against the rest of the crew. The group, now including Kraglin, escaped in the forward section of the ship and made their way to Ego's planet, with Rocket now afraid Quill was in danger.[1]
