    I mean, which one do I agree with? These are all the best theory’s of Rockets back story I’ve ever heard, it’s really sad to realise that he has to have thing in his mind of his past he is desperate to forget. Rocket is my favourite marvel character 🧡

    As Rocket is pretty upset about what was done to him, he would have blasted The Collector on sight, had he been the person responsible for Rocket's creation......

    In GOTG3:
    Rocket's creator is the High Evolutionary, Drax is in for a big surprise when he discovers his daughter is alive. Rocket also gets a love interest in the form of Lylla. Nebula and Star Lord will grow into closer friends.

  • II S h i b a ‘ s II A r t II

    Maybe rockets backstory could have something to do with the name he was originally given: *SUBJECT: 89P13*
    Maybe translated into another language, or, jumbled into a word. Or decoded.
    If anyone could try any of the above theories. I’d love to see the out comes!

    its so easy peter quills dad made him as side kick to help him out throughout the universe. But when he got loose he had to settle or mantis. Quill also was supposedly "Torn apart and put back together again" by his father in their battle. Rocket said this exact same thing in the first movie. BOOM
