Disney XD's new Marvel animated cartoon, Ultimate Spider-Man, will see the Guardians of the Galaxy guest star, with the episode written by Brian Michael Bendis, the recently announced new writer on the comic book of the same name.

In an interview with Marvel.com - where Marvel refers to Rocket Racoon as a "joke" character - Bendis spills the news.

Marvel.com: Brian, hearing you talk about Rocket Raccoon reminds me of you talking about Squirrel Girl, and when you added her to NEW AVENGERS, almost taking someone that could be a joke character and treating them semi-seriously. Is there any connection there at all?

Brian Michael Bendis: Absolutely! This is what I say, people that like what we did with Squirrel Girl in the end, particularly that issue that Mike Deodato drew that focused on her solely, we’re certainly going to build to that with Rocket. He’s a funnier character than Squirrel Girl, just in general. We have a lot of love for him and we’ll be dealing with him front and center. And also, I got to write the Guardians of the Galaxy episode of the “Ultimate Spider-Man” cartoon that’s coming out next year, so you’ll be seeing a little bit of that there too.

The Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon also features the new Nova, Sam Alexander, with a new comic book to boot as well, that was also recently announced by Jeph Loeb and Ed McGuinness.
