    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?

          Maybe Rocket could be one of the children of Thanos. In Endgame, when he went with the Avengers to find him, Rocket said "oh no" when he saw Thanos after the Infinity Gauntlet was chopped off and the stones vanished from it.

                      Supposedly in Guardians 3 we’re going to see rocket’s creator.

                            Guardian of Galaxy 2

                            Rocket: “I’ve been genetically engineered to fly a space craft.”
                            Later in the movie...
                            Yondo: “I know the scientists in the lab never gave a rats ass about you... . I know who you are boy because you are me”
                            Closing scene to Yondos funeral was Rocket crying.
                            My theory is that Rocket is a form of Yondo. All they care about is themselves and the money for the most part. Both got a thing for Peter. Rocket was created to fly Yondo’s space craft and to “squeeze into places that adults couldn’t” Then Rocket was forgotten till Peter came into the picture and took Rockets place.

                            Make this go viral!!

                                Honestly I feel bad for Rocket because he was torn apart and put back together.

                                        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 hope lyla the other is in guardians 3 and I found in vol 2 its was your third pick you just have to watch vol2 you see yondu at the ice place with the rangers you look very close you see him in a far distance with a dead animal and robotic parts

                                                          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......
