Rocket from Guardians of the Galaxy

 

Might be easy

 

What was Paul McCartney's first acoustic brand name.

If children are studying the 20th century, I'm in their text books.

Well done, @When Im 64!

Just to give some background on my question, though he is only known as Rocket in the movie (and doesn't know he's a raccoon), in the comics he is Rocket Raccoon (Rocky for short). He made his first appearance in Marvel Preview #7 in the summer of 1976. Here is the panel where he introduces himself:

 This full strip can be found here (the second part of a story that wasn't continued).

Rocky wasn't seen again until The Incredible Hulk #271 (May 1982).

Hmmm, something familiar about the story title! And we find he has gained a sidekick:

Another Beatles referencing character!

As the story progresses we find Rocky is hunting for a mythical book:

in order to save his love:

Lylla, an obvious reference Lil.

Later he went on to have four issues of his own, appeared in various other stories, before becoming a member of Guardians of the Galaxy.

I believe it was a Zenith.

Hey Jude at Trident.

What was the first film George saw at the cinema and what age was he?

Wild guess ... "The Girl Can't Help It," age 13?

Not a bit like Cagney.
