This question stems directly from this answer.

If Rocket is only one of many animals created by the robots mentioned in the answer above, do we know what happened to the rest?

Presumably if Rocket is as tough / insane as he is, the rest could be the same.

  • He's not insane ... just a little nuts ;-) You'd be a little nuts, too, if you had all those implants in you! Jan 12 '15 at 17:37

In the 616 continuity (the comics), Rocket and other small animals were granted humanoid abilities & intelligence so that they could act as "companions" (think seeing-eye dog) for mental patients on Halfworld. Rocket eventually ended up in a role much like that of the head guard at the asylum, but through later events found a way to cure all of the patients at the asylum.

After the patients were cured, most of the animal companions left the planet to have their own adventures, but only Rocket's adventures were shown in the comics.

  • Is there a Guardians of the Galaxy manga with Rocket Tanuki?
