Rocket along with the other Guardians of the Galaxy members went to the Spartax homeworld in order to retrieve the guilt ridden Star-Lord for a mission of galactic importance. The Guardians planned on going to Earth but Quill complained that Earth had it's own heroes and why should he help them when they weren't around when he needed the help. This caused a little skirmish between Rocket and Quill as Rocket blamed him for what happened to Groot. Quill ended up joining Rocket and the rest of them when he learned they were being hunted by the Universal Church of Truth.

They had picked up an emergency beacon that came from the Sol System. Making their way there, Quill noticed that the station they came upon used to belong to the Earth organization S.W.O.R.D.. Rocket boarded the station with the others to find out how the station ended up in deep space. They noticed scorch marks meaning there was a fight onboard. Mantis did a telepathic sweep which alerted them to a horde of Brood. Rocket enjoyed killing the Brood with his energy blaster saying that it was much more fun that way.

Clearing the area out, Rocket accessed the station's computer learning that the signal had been on a loop for the past 50 years. They then ventured to Earth where Mantis was not picking up any communications to her hails, but they received a message in a form of a satellite that shot their ship out of orbit causing it to crash land in the Badlands of Amerika[1]

Rocket and his comrades came upon an abandoned village filled with a pile of dead bodies which swayed them to venture on. They finally came to the town of Horse Creek where Rocket first encountered a criminal group known as the Wrecking Crew who were there to collect a tribute from the townspeople. The Guardians decided to protect the town by battling them. This prompted Rocket to threaten Bulldozer with his huge blast cannon. He shot him in the head but the bullet bounced off his helmet which enraged Bulldozer to start rushing towards Rocket. All of a sudden his cannon launched a grenade into Bulldozer's mouth which blew apart his head. They then became heroes to the people of the town.[2]

He and the other Guardians were invited into Josie's Bar in celebration of the defeat of Doom's lackeys. Rocket sat at one of the tables while members of the town where toasting Quill for his bravery in the fight. But they were interrupted by a gang of Ghost Riders who wanted to collect a bounty on Quill for the murders that were committed. Rocket stayed out of the way as Quill mopped the floor with these bandits also.

During the night as they rested, a huge gang of Riders came to get payback for what happened earlier in the day. They managed to capture Rocket and the others taking them to the Rice-Eccles Stadium to serve as battling opponents in the arena.[3]
