Guardians Of The Galaxy’s Adam Warlock Needed For Rocket’s Origin Plot

Rocket Raccoon’s origin tale could serve as an inspiration for Adam Warlock’s appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 3. Adam Warlock has been teased twice in the Guardians of the Galaxy films, and he may finally make an appearance in Phase 4. Regardless of the outcome of his meeting with the Guardians, Warlock’s presence will have ramifications across the whole Marvel Cinematic Universe, but none more so than for Rocket Raccoon.

Why is Adam Warlock Needed For Rocket’s Original Narrative?

“Trash Panda” Rocket Raccoon stands three feet tall and has a tragic backstory, which includes a fondness for weapons and cybernetic prosthetics. This holds true for both the animated and live-action versions of the series. Despite his minuscule stature, Rocket has faced up against villains such as Ronan the Accuser, Ego the Living Planet, and Thanos in the movies, all while trash-talking like it was nothing. However, beneath his brash exterior lies a great deal of suffering. The sad origin story of Rocket Raccoon from the Marvel Cinematic Universe might be revisited in Guardians of the Galaxy 3, and the birth of Adam Warlock could serve as a thematic nod to the past of the Guardians.

In both Guardians of the Galaxy films, Rocket Raccoon has hinted at the horrors of what he has created. His genetic and cybernetic anthropomorphization has been established thus far. Torn apart and reassembled repeatedly, he once said, appears to be the source of his aggressive tendencies; it would be enough to enrage and infuriate anyone. Adam Warlock, a genetically engineered extraterrestrial race’s backup weapon who was produced and is now being held as a backup by the Sovereign, can share this trauma.

As Ayesha, the Sovereign leader, puts it, “Every member of the populace is born just as the society intended. Physically and psychologically impeccable.” Regardless of his own goals, Adam Warlock is created to be the pinnacle of their perfection. When Rocket Raccoon encounters the ones who tortured him to make him who he is, Warlock may revolt against his makers and go on a mission to find his true identity in Guardians of the Galaxy 3.

How will it be different in comparison to Vol 1 and 2?

Last year’s Guardians of the Galaxy films, Vol. 1 and 2, focused on how a gang of misfits came to find a family despite their differences. In Vol. 1, the oddballs find a family in each other despite their differences. After learning the truth about his parents in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Star-Lord and Gamora made peace with Nebula in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

It’ll be interesting to see how the two characters deal with their individualism despite the fact that they’ve been created as living weapons in Guardians of the Galaxy 3.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is the perfect film to provide the thematic groundwork for Adam Warlock before he interacts with characters like Thor and the Eternals. Aside from the threat, he poses to the Guardians, Rocket Raccoon and his companions may gain new insight into their own minds through his narrative.
