Marvel's GOTG Almost Had 'Fat Drax,' Human-Sized Rocket

While the cosmic action game is faithful to the source material, Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy had bizarre character concepts like a human-sized Rocket Raccoon and a «fat» version of Drax.

Eidos-Montreal's sci-fi adventure delivered unique versions of Marvel's outer space outlaws that were both authentic and original.

Eidos-Montreal apparently chose Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy due to the team's underdog status, but major departures from Marvel Comics lore were apparently considered early in development.

Upon release last year Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy was highly praised for its art direction and writing. Eidos-Montreal successfully balanced humor and emotion, with the lighthearted nature of Marvel's cosmic team leading to some truly hilarious moments when the action game isn't delving into the personal flaws and fears of each Guardian.
