The Legion of Super-Pets and Rocket Raccoon



Back in 1978, audiences were promised, "You will believe a man can fly", and with the release of Superman: The Movie they saw that promise fulfilled. Now over three decades later, the new promise is, "You will believe a raccoon can operate a machine gun!"  Guardians of the Galaxy looks to be a lot of fun, and I hope that audiences respond to it, so that some more of comics' far-out concepts will be considered for film adaptations.

Just so long as one of those concepts is _not_ STEEL 2!

I suppose Rocket Racoon and the racoon Green Lantern (Chip?) has been floated?

Long time no comment, recently caught up on a couple of months missed, but enjoy them all.

Would Rocket have a problem with Super Cat, like in the current Captain Marvel with her cat.

@Anonymous: Ch'p was a chipmunk, actually. He came from the planet H'lven (which sounds like "Alvin") where his best friend was named D'll (like in "Chip and Dale").

I think Krypto looks like a goat here. but I would still buy 10 copies of this issue. (At 60 cents each, that'd be less than the cost of two issues of ADVENTURE these days. Sigh.)
