Rocket has evolved into one of my favorite characters in the MCU over the course of his four movies but one of the reasons I love him so much is the comedy relief he can bring to these films.
Rocket is a strange dude. I mean, he’s a raccoon for crying out loud. But there’s a recurring joke created on his expense as characters who meet him for the first time name him a different animal every time. It’s absolutely hilarious and so today I wanted to list all of the names and the exchanges (that I can remember) so far. Enjoy!
Star-Lord: “I’ve had a lot of people try to kill me over the year. I ain’t about to be brought down by a tree and a talking raccoon.”
Rocket: “What’s a raccoon?”
Star-Lord: “What’s a raccoon? It’s what you are, stupid.”

A Haunting Arrival
Rey ran off of the front deck of her home, igniting her lightsaber as Ora sprinted toward her. She knew what was happening before Ora even said anything.
“Mother, mother, she’s coming! She’s coming.”
Rey nodded grimly as her gaze focused on the dark clouds. The last time she had seen clouds like those she had been on Carcuun. She shuddered as she remembered what happened there.
“We have to get out of here,” she told her daughter, putting an arm around her shoulder.
The gusts of wind became stronger, blowing her hair and robe about her furiously. She looked to find Trish approaching them with Ben right behind her. The scowl on his face told her everything.
She and Ben locked eyes and she immediately knew Trish had been the mole to bring The Whisper here. After so many years of keeping her daughter safe and now all of that secrecy was being undone in a blink of an eye. If she had been younger she would’ve attacked Trish immediately but she didn’t have time to deal with her emotions. She had to prepare herself for The Whisper’s imminent arrival.
Just as she said that there was a great disturbance in the sky followed by a mighty roar. Ora stepped forward, gaping up at the sky.

Vision had a surprise debut in Avengers: Age of Ultron and I was an instant fan. He was so cool but after Age of Ultron, he wasn’t given enough time to shine.
When Avengers: Endgame came out it was very clear that it was the ultimate culmination of the last eleven years of Marvel movies. Characters (like Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster) that we weren’t expecting to see again had returned for this three-hour-long masterpiece. It really seemed like nearly every important character that’s ever been in the MCU was in the movie, making Vision’s absence all the more gutwrenching.
If you recall Vision had the last stone that Thanos retrieved in Infinity War. He was one of many casualties in the final two Avengers films but unlike the snapped victims he wasn’t brought back to life in any form, which was especially jarring considering all of the time travel.
I would’ve loved to see them go back in time and Vision be a part of this story but he wasn’t.
This scene only made his death even worse. To have so many heroes in one scene and Vision (one of the coolest heroes in the MCU) not even getting a chance to be a part of that awesome showdown is just…sad.
Of course, there is the known fact that Paul Bettany will reprise his role as Vision in the WandaVision series on Disney+ but it will probably transpire before the events of Infinity War, meaning that yes, his death is set in stone.
Poor, poor Vision.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.
