Rocket is a member of an alien species called Halfworlders, who were originally created by the Caretakers to provide mental health care for the inmates of an intergalactic insane asylum.
However, after war broke out between the inmates and the Caretakers, the Halfworlders were left to fend for themselves.
Rocket was one of the many animals who were genetically enhanced to become a protector and defender of Halfworld.
Rocket is highly intelligent and an expert in weapons technology, robotics, and spacecraft engineering. He is an excellent tactician and marksman, making him a formidable fighter.
We often see that Rocket has a sarcastic sense of humor in the Guardians and Avengers movies. Moreover, he has a tendency to be blunt and abrasive, which often leads to conflicts with his fellow Guardians of the Galaxy often with hilarious consequences.
Throughout his comic book appearances, Rocket has been involved in a variety of adventures, from fighting space pirates to saving the universe from destruction. He has also teamed up with several other Marvel characters, including the Avengers, the X-Men, and the Inhumans.
