Why Did Nebula rampage genetic raccoon for powers?
At one point, Black Widow was going to debut long before The Falcon and the Winter Soldier — then a global pandemic happened and the release slate from Marvel Studios got all sorts of jumbled. Now, Black Widow won’t hit theaters until this summer and all six episodes of the Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan-starring series have already been released. Outside of the introduction of a shady double-agent played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus, the connections between Black Widow and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier have been non-existent.That is, of course, until the show’s finale when it a direct reference to Scarlett Johansson’s Avenger was snuck into the series. Spoilers up ahead for “One World, One People.” Proceed with caution if you’ve yet to catch yourself up with The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
While viewers have now seen most of Gamora’s life, her adoptive sister, Nebula, has remained somewhat unexplored. She, too, was raised alongside Gamora as Thanos’ daughter, but she was not treated half so well. Thanos pit the sisters against one another often, leading to the two of them being antagonistic rivals for most of their lives. While Nebula starts out as a villain, she eventually joins up with her sister and becomes one of the Guardians of the Galaxy, as well as an Avenger. Fans would love to see who Nebula is and was, and how she became who she is, just as they saw Gamora’s story.
Spider-Man may have finally found an activity that takes more responsibility than being a superhero: pet ownership. To be fair, Peter Parker probably wouldn’t have too much trouble taking care of an ordinary cat or dog, but adopting an alien that can grow into a giant monster is proving quite difficult for the Web-Slinger.Back in The Amazing Spider-Man #43, after an intense battle with the size-changing alien, Gog, Spidey and his roommate, Boomerang, decide to take the creature in as their new pet. Using a special, homemade collar to prevent Gog from turning back into a rampaging behemoth, the roommates initially seem to be handling their little beast fairly well. They even start posting pictures of Gog on social media to bring in some extra money. Of course, the alien is still a bit rambunctious and he needs to be house trained, but overall, he hasn’t caused too much trouble.
The fact that Rocket Raccoon exists as an entity at all is extremely compelling. Rocket is from Halfworld, where animals are genetically engineered to have humanoid intelligence and personality, in order to give them enough awareness to fight back against being enslaved. Rocket is a scientifically engineered raccoon who has also become a master of weaponry and a mercenary in his own right. An origin movie seeing how Rocket came to be — and how he came to team up with Groot — would be more than welcomed by MCU fans who want to see more of these peculiarly spectacular characters.
