Deals at the HubEdit
Groot was the frequent partner-in-crime of Rocket Raccoon. One of their adventures saw them travel to The Hub, where the duo rescued a family of sentient Scalluscs from the Stygian crime-lord Zade Scraggot, who was planning on harvesting the shells of the hapless snail-like creatures to use as tiles for his bathroom. Groot and Rocket had originally been hired by Sqqd'li, under the orders of his employer, the crime-lord Zade Scraggot to acquire the Scalluscs for Scraggot, but upon learning the nature of their cargo and their intended fate, and that the Scalluscs could out-pay Scraggot, Groot and Rocket chose to rescue them from the crime-lord instead.
Guardians of the GalaxyEdit
Groot is first seen with Rocket on the planet Xandar, drinking water from a fountain. He helps Rocket to capture Star-Lord for a bounty, however they were intervened by Gamora, who wants to steel an orb from Star-Lord. All four of them got arrested by the Nova Corps and was sent to Kyln.
He, Rocket and Gamora join forces with Star-Lord to escape the prison. This leads to Drax the Destroyer to join them as well to get revenge on Ronan the Accuser for the deaths of his family. They managed to escape with Star-Lord's ship and went to The Collector for the money of the orb. The group (except Drax) got injured in an explosion caused by an infinity stone.
Ronan then appears and attacks Drax while Nebula goes after Star-Lord and her sister, Gamora. After the battle, Groot saved Drax's life and convinced Rocket to help them save Star-Lord and Gamora from Yondu. The three of them joins the other two on Yondu's ship and starts talking about a plan for the upcoming battle on Xandar. Groot was the first one to agree with Star-Lord to stop Ronan. Eventually, the rest also agreed and prepared for the battle.
Groot was with Gamora, Star-Lord and Drax on Ronan's starship and helped to defeat Ronan's soldiers. Rocket droves his aircraft into Ronan's ship and hits Ronan and accidently Drax. The ships starts to fall, which will kill everyone except Ronan aboard. Groot then chose to sacrifice himself to save his friends from certain death. The ship's crash did indeed kill Groot, but his friends were badly injured. After the crash, Rocket started to cry and mourn Groot, and keeps a piece of Groot's sticks.
When they were called "the Guardians of the Galaxy", Groot started to grow from the pot that Rocket keeps aboard Star-Lord's ship.
