Lord Dyvyne, Judson Jakes and Blackjack O'Hare
The pair of Rocket and Groot was the emotional center of the first "Guardians" film, and while the second movie might center on Peter Quill's familial lineage, there is no reason things couldn't get personal for Rocket as well. The evil frog Lord Dyvyne, the cowardly mole Judson Jakes and the rabbit pirate Blackjack O'Hare were the villains of the mid-'80s "Rocket Raccoon" miniseries by co-creator Bill Mantlo and artist Mike Mignola. Dyvyne and Jakes were business rivals who ran mega-powerful corporations and tried to kidnap Rocket's lady love, Lynx, an heiress to another powerful conglomerate. The anthropomorphic despots hired Blackjack O'Hare and his Black Bunny Brigade to do the deed, starting a major rivalry with everyone's favorite space raccoon. While Marvel recently retconned these characters into false memories implanted in Rocket's brain, there's little reason that Rocket (and Howard the Duck! And Cosmo!) has to be the only talking animal in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Thanks to Mantlo and Mignola, Marvel has a rich world comprised of cool space critters which would be perfect to enrich Rocket's movie back story.
