Rocket is a master marksman, tactician, pilot, and is multilingual, able to speak with Groot. Despite his small stature, he’s able to pack a punch with the weapons he creates.
His weaponry includes an Ion Cannon, Laser Cannon, Gas Grenade, the Hadron Enforcer combustion cannon, Aero-Rigs—allowing users to jettison into the air and outer space—and a Nanobot Welder.
Don’t Mess With the Racoon
Rocket’s enemies include any enemy of the Guardians of the Galaxy, although he has accrued some notable adversaries.
When Radical Kree zealot Ronan the Accuser breaks a peace treaty with the Kree and Xandarians, desiring the destruction of all Xandarians, Rocket engages in a battle with him over an Infinity Stone alongside his fellow Guardians. He blames Ronan for Groot’s death during the confrontation.
The Mad Titan Thanos is immensely strong and cruel and stops at nothing to get ahold of each Infinity Stone in his bid to destroy half the universe. While Rocket does his best to stay out of Thanos’ way, Thanos’ actions begin to hit increasingly close to home and he earns Rocket’s enmity.
The Sovereign and their High Priestess originally give the Guardians a job to defeat an Abilisk, a creature feeding off their precious Anulax Batteries. Rocket’s theft of some of those same batteries lead the Sovereign to hunt the Guardians.
The Celestial Ego attempts to conquer the universe using his son, Peter Quill, but the Guardians, Rocket included, fight to stop him.
Trash Panda Pals
Rocket has a close bond with Groot, formed before the two joined the Guardians of the Galaxy. After Groot dies, but generates a spawn, that bond carries over, with Rocket continuing to watch out for the young being—even as the adolescent Groot tests his patience.
