Rocket Raccoon in MvC3 Ultimate(!?)

Looks a bit different than back in the day.

Lots of strange choices were made in terms of characters for Marvel Vs Capcom 3 (Modok, She-Hulk?!) and the trend continues but it’s strange GOOD instead of strange BAD as the list was leaked for MvC Ultimate.  While a fun game, I just could not get past the new style graphics.  Instead of growing on me after detesting them as my first impression, I continued to find them shittier and shittier with every play.  I don’t know what that style is called making everything look like it’s lit up superbright (yet at night) but whatever it is, it just didn’t do it for me.  That said, the addition of Rocket Raccoon to the series roster is quite shocking.  As a poster child for obscure (while not indy) Copper age comics, it’s tough for me to imagine anyone but a few people even remembering the character.  I imagine there are some people that play fighters that are in their late 30’s– so this might be targeted at those few that do remember (as well as the equally surprising Iron Fist) as you have to be pretty damn old to have picked up the Rocket Raccoon stuff on the comic rack at the drug store (I was in 4th grade).

  1. I didn’t know about Rocket until the 2008 Guardians series, but enjoy him a whole lot. Plus with the possibility of Groot, Start-Lord, or any other GOTG charterer cameo in a Level 3 super is very exciting. Also, the rest of the new guys are very aweosme.

  2. Yeah, I did some more research and saw that he was in some new comics– I’ve been out of the loop on new stuff for years now with the exception of League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. I can’t say anything bad about the new choices for MvC ultimate except that they are not some of my old favorites from MvC2. You know who I’d really like to see in MvC? ROM!!!

  3. I might have all the issues to the limited Rocket Raccoon series in one of my comic book boxes if they weren’t destroyed during my childhood.
