Rocket. For a "funny, animal sidekick" they gave him an awful lot of heart. He rarely ceases to be entertaining or memorable whenever he's on-screen.

Agreed, Rocket is awesome. How Gunn and co managed to make a CGI raccoon into such a complex, interesting, endearing and hilariously funny character is beyond me. Massive kudos to them, and to Bradley Cooper for giving Rocket so much personality with his voice work.

Rocket is GOAT. It's easily one of my favourite Marvel Studios characters.

Even though Gamora's my personal favorite, I have to agree with this. I had a blast watching Rocket the first go 'round but Vol. 2 made him ten times more entertaining than before.

I still want to know how the hell Cooper came up with that voice. It's so perfect it's the only one I hear any time I read a comic with Rocket in it.

None. But if I have to pick one, it would Nebula for the fierceness that she exudes. And she's rocking that shaved head very well!

Rocket and the biggest part for me is Cooper. When he was announced people thought that Marvel hired to elevate an obscure property with name recognition in fear of the movie flopping.

In reality he is the perfect choice. He can make him sound angry, heartfelt, badass and hilarious sometimes all at once in a scene. perfect castinfg and i don't see it mentioned often because it's a voice.

Cooper's voice work as Rocket is very underrated. It barely sounds like Cooper.

I went with Drax. Love what Bautista's done with the role. But if we include the "original" Guardians the blood red snake sorcerer jumps to the top of my list.

Everybody likes Rocket so much... I really loved Rocket in the Abnett & Lanning comics but he felt somewhat different to what Gunn did with him in the films so I'm torn regarding this character in MCU. He was much more kind and friendly (he would certainly not call Groot an "idiot") and less snide in A&L comics. I liked that better.

I loved Nebula in the first film but she somehow didn't feel the same in the second one.

Baby Groot was tooo sugary.

Gamora felt much more I mean much more awesome in the Abnett & Lanning comics.

Drax is really funny in MCU, I liked him very much in Vol. 2 but again, I'm used to his version in the comics where he's much more fearsome badass. In MCU he feels more like a goofball. Not like someone you'd s**t your pants when you him. Plus his tattoos in films look more like an eczema, but I should be ok with that since I was hospitalized with severe generalised eczema so at least even I got some representation in the super-hero CB movies. (Yea, it's not that funny when I recall those days...)

Star-Lord too feels more silly than in the comics.

Mantis as a person who sees into the heads of others and their future, etc. is more distant and deliberate rather than fearful, neurotic and startled. I get she was keeping the secret about the whole thing but she did not feel like the Mantis I know. Plus I just love when she's green. I know it would compete with Gamora's visuals, but that's not the case in the comics since Gamora has more distinct look.

Groot too, like, in the prison Rocket's explaining the plan while Groot just goes and picks the thing, it is Gunn-style funny, but it's kinda stupid.
But Vol. 1 Groot is probably my favorite Guardian.


When I read my thoughts here and think about that, Gunn just made everybody more stupid and funny. I think the much-used "kindergarten humor" is the best way to describe that. I mean, it seems the team works, people love those characters and those films, I'm a fan of them too (to some degree which I discussed in the review thread), but since Abnett's and Lanning's comics is my favorite take on Guardians I like those characters more than their MCU versions. I get every author treats the material he's working with differently, but I miss some characteristics of Abnett's Guardians. But I like some things Gunn did with them too.


Overall the best GotG comics character is Cosmo, he's my fave Marvel character.
In MCU? Yea, I think it's old Groot.
