Rocket Raccoon

His name and aspects of his character are a nod to The Beatles' 1968 song "Rocky Raccoon ". Rocket Raccoon appeared as a prominent member in the 2008 relaunch of the superhero team Guardians of the Galaxy.

Ok then.

Here's Rocket's first appearance in a Marvel comic, Marvel Preview #7, in the summer of 1976:

His next appearance was in The Incredible Hulk #271 in May 1982 (something vaguely similar about that issue title methinks):

He'd only appeared in 10 Marvel comics before Guardians, and often had a sidekick:
