Who thought Rocket Raccoon Was British?


picSeems the Brits are taking all our super heroes!

Perhaps a cool nod to Marvel cosmic Guardians of the Galaxy scribes Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning, Capcom went with a British accent for everyone's favorite furball, Rocket Raccoon, in the Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 video game.

I must say I didn't picture Rocket with an accent like that when he uttered the line, "Say hello to my little friend!" Then again, Rocket most likely spoke as Tony Montana. Now that would have been awesome to include in the game!

As a CBN reader noted on our Facebook, do they have raccoons on any continent other than North America, lol?

I suppose Rocket is not of this Earth, but I don't think his original homeworld has ever been established.

So how many are going to use the following voice in their heads as they read the further adventures of Rocket and Groot found in Annihilators?

Look for Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 in stores February 15th, 2012.
