Top 5 Animals In Comics

marvel animals

The Animals in comics don’t quite get enough love. So let’s list the best animals in comics. Some might not take them seriously as individuals, but a lot of them are able to stand up on their own and can be very entertaining.

(Listed from top to bottom, bottom being the best)

5. Lockjaw

Royal pet to the Royal Family of the Inhumans. Lockjaw is a large alien Bulldog, who has the power to teleport. He is used as the families form of transportation over long distances. Very loyal and proves to be smarter than he believes on multiple occasions. On his own he has performed many acts of heroism, and has even assembled his own team of pet Avengers.

4. B’dg

The talking Squirrel and Green Lantern. Hailing from the planet H’lven like his predecessor Ch’p, it is the homeworld to a race of sentient rodent-like creatures, or in other words Chipmonks. On multiple occasions he has come to the aid of both Earth and Hal Jordan, and has proven to be a formidable fighter in the midst of battle. It is because of his tactical knowledge and overwhelming power as a Lantern, that B’dg makes it to the #4 spot.

3. Lockheed

He is an alien dragon, that is the longtime companion of Shadowcat (Kitty Pryde). Not only is he a strong dragon, but he is a very intelligent one as well. Smart enough to earn himself a spot in S.W.O.R.D., the branch of S.H.I.E.L.D. which handles intergalactic situations. He is proficient in the use o multiple weapons and has shown to have decent fighting skills. Lockheed is one beast that you should never underestimate.

2. Krypto

The loyal dog to Superman. All the powers of a Kryptonian, and mans best friend. He has put himself in harms way just for the sake of his family, even to be trapped in the Phantom Zone. Of course he was rescued from his entrapment, and even then continued to be a protector to Superboy after. He may not have the intelligence like others, but his courage and bravery lands him a number 2 spot.

1. Rocket Raccoon

A talking Raccoon who loves to blast just about everything to hell with his heavy arsenal. He is a member of Guardians of The Galaxy and is the most comedic of the group. Every time he takes the spotlight he is the most memorable and the most entertaining. For that he is the best among the many animals out there.
