What are the four Beatles middle names? (this is a 3/4 trick question, though for different reasons)

Yep! Do you see what I did there?

I don't expect you... to understand after you've caused so much pain. But then again, you're just a human... a victim of the insane.

What song were the spirits singing to John in the dream he had that inspired his song #9 Dream?

"Ah! böwakawa poussé, poussé".

Though, according to studio engineer Roy Cicala, this was actually a slight rewrite by his wife and backing singer on the track, Lori Burton, of John's original "Ah! böwakawa pussy, pussy", as it was pointed out that "pussy" might cause problems with getting radio play.

Which Marvel character, who first appeared in 1976, was inspired by a Beatles song?

Well, there were actually three Marvel characters in that song, Magneto, Titanium Man, and the Crimson Dynamo.

But I'm looking for a Marvel character inspired by... Remember, this is the hard thread. Too early for a clue, I think...

Okay, so I'm going to give a clue...

The question is: Which Marvel character, who first appeared in 1976, was inspired by a Beatles song?

The clue is: This character was voiced by Bradley Cooper in a major recent (2014) movie.

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.

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?

Drat.

Gonna need a hint, I think. Musical? Comedy? Drama? Well-know film or relatively obscure?

I'd need to check the book as i forget exactly (it's been a while). Which begs the question - where is the book? 

Certainly a well know film tho.
