    Rocket Raccoon (Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers Infinity War, Avengers Endgame) has a mysterious backstory that involves cybernetic implants that made him more human-like. But who gave them these parts? Director James Gunn has hinted at a clue hidden somewhere in Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 that points to Rocket's origin, that still remains undiscovered. Erik Voss breaks down the various theories and points out a few Easter Eggs you might have missed from Guardians 2. Could Thanos have created Rocket? Has Rocket been to Earth before?

          I think is youndo who is the creator because when youndo say he know him why do you think he knows that.

                      @NewRockstars I think that Ebony Maw along with some other scientists used those “micro surgery need-like tools” that he jabbed into Doctor Strange’s face to create Rocket

                            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......

                                                        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.
