    Someone super-hyper-competent versus someone who manages to bumble his way into victory like a fuzzy Don Knotts? Dammit, I can’t choose!

    G’Nort is just too great. It’s like Scooby Doo with a Power Ring.

    “I Am Groot!” *

    * Translation: Rocket Raccoon is a brilliant tactician who specializes in demolition and heavy ordinance, capable to fight mortal and immortal enemies with equal panache and success, while G’Nort was such a sac of… let’s say patatoes, that he got killed off panel. My vote will always go with the Gatling toting Coon.

    G’nort would dumb luck his way to victory. Rocket would plan 3 steps ahead to make his victory fool proof but as Little Washu says “Nothing is fool proof because fools are so ingenuis”.Thus securing a sure win for G’nort. Oh and Mathew is a Podcasting god. keep up the good work guys.

    Going on name alone, Rocket Raccoon tells you everything you need to know: he’s a raccoon and has something to do with rockets.

    G’nort…sounds like a dog with a cold.

    I vote for Rocket and for SCIENCE!

    Though G’Nort is loyal and would fetch my slippers from Alpha Centuri. My main man Rocket gets the win.

    G’Nort is dead. Yeah I know, it does not matter in comics. But between an alive character and a dead one, I tend to chose the living one. So rocker raccoon ftw!

      No he is not, actually. I don’t remember whether it was Dan Didio or Geoff Johns, but at a DC Blackest Night panel some time back someone asked why G’Nort hadn’t come back, and the reply was that he wasn’t dead.

    G’Nort for this one. This has actually been a long discussion in my gaming group. My view. The ring for which G’Nort is a display manikin will win the day.

    Rocket Raccoon. He has a rocket launcher and/or a Gatling Gun. All G’Nort has is a power ring – and not much else beyond that. Besides, Raccoon detests any competition for animal sidekicks.

      A power ring. Is that all? He only has the most powerful weapon in the universe is all.

    Rocket Raccoon is simply the most bad-ass small mammal in the universe. Nothing could stand in his way.

    Hay Rocket Racoon beat Dex-starr…
    Iam 90% certain he can handle G’nort in a fight, dumb luck or not.
    Sure G’nort has his ring but he isent really capable of useing it to its full effect.

    G’nort Esplanade G’neesmacher is not only one of the greatest Green Lanterns of all time, (I don’t care what they say) he also has the incredible power of dumb luck.

    G’Nort is a dangerous idiot, he’s like SpongeBob, it’s dangerous to be around him because his stupidity causes mayhem and the power ring maximizes this capacity for mayhem.

    This wasn’t the sort of Furry poll I was expecting. There should be a third option: “Who the heck are both those guys” – somehow, in over four decades of reading comics, I haven’t heard of either of them. Which leads me to believe they both suck.

      Just because you haven’t heard of them doesn’t mean they suck, sir… As for Rocket and G’nort, neither is high-profile, but Rocket had his own series (with Mike Mignola art) back in the 80’s, and has been front and center in Guardians of the Galaxy for the last three years or so. G’nort is NOT dead, however he’s been missing since that “I Can’t Believe It’s Not The Justice League” mini back in 06 or so.

        You sure? I could have sworn he was killed of panel in a GL book…

          to Quote the Wiki ” When asked whether G’nort would be making an appearance as a member of the Black Lantern Corps during Blackest Night at San Diego Comic Con 2009, Geoff Johns replied that the character was not dead and was still considered missing in action.”

          That being said Rocket would kick his flea bitten ass.
