I almost fell out of my chair. Rocket Raccoon? Seriously?
Isn't he like the most obscure Marvel character ever? I'm surprised anyone else has ever heard of him. I only know him because issue #2 was in a pile of bargain bin books I bought bulk in 1986. I guess he's meant to be another wacky inclusion like MODOK, but at least people have actually heard of MODOK.
he's actually come into his own in the cosmic marvel series, along with nova. both nova and rocket have had a huge turn around in the passed 5 years. great comics. and shuma is still the most obscure :P
