Rocket’s New Look
Rocket’s slick new blue and red costume featured in Endgame might look new, but it’s actually a nod to the Guardians of Galaxy comic book from the mid-2000s. In fact, James Gunn has said on several occasions the comics were his primary source of inspiration when writing and directing the Guardians of the Galaxy movies.
Created by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning, the Guardians of the Galaxy comic book series made its debut in April of 2008. To start, the team was comprised of Star-Lord, Rocket Raccoon, Groot, Phyla-Vell, Gamora, Drax the Destroyer, and Adam Warlock.Source: Marvel Studios
