Lylla the otter

With the release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 we have seen Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper) in the foreground. A final farewell to the band of misfits by James Gunn delves into the history of Rocketsintrinsically linked to the film’s antagonist, theHigh Evolutionary (Chukwudi Iwuji). The raccoon’s past resurfaces and we are introduced to three figures, friends who shared his captivity with him: Teefs the walrus (Asim Chaudhry), Floor the rabbit (Mikaela Hoover) And Lylla the otter (Linda Cardellini).

The reunification of Rockets And Lylla it is particularly emotional, an allusion to a deeper connection that goes beyond simple common origin. And there’s a reason: in the comics, Lylla, or Lady Lylla, is thesoul mate by Rocket.

Rocket and Lylla

The pair of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 debuted together on the pages of The Incredible Hulk #271 in 1982 (Rocket had only appeared once, in Marvel Preview #71976). Hulk he is transported to Halfworld, a distant planet where he meets Rocket Raccoon and Wal Rus and joins them to save Lylla. Lylla, the toy company heiress Mayhem mechanicsis in the clutches of the evil mole Judson Jake, who took control of the company after killing Lylla’s parents. The group manages to free Lylla and to prevent a Judson Jake to recover Gideon’s mighty Bible and use it to conquer not only Halfworld but other worlds as well.

Originally, Halfworld it was used as a gigantic asylum, where the colonizers kept the mentally ill for treatment. Eventually the project was abandoned and the doctors left robots to tend to the patients. When a supernova occurred nearby, the robots were showered with such an amount of radiation that they became sentient. In turn, these living robots they took the pets that had been left behind and started genetically modifying them. These genetic modifications have led to the creation of Rocket, Lylla, Wal Rus, Judson Jake and many others.
