Aero-Rigs are jetpack-like devices invented by Rocket Raccoon to assist the Guardians of the Galaxy.

History

Battle on Sovereign

"Drax, why aren't you wearing one of Rocket's Aero-Rigs?"
"It hurts."
"Hurts?"
"I have sensitive nipples."
"Wa-ha-ha-ha! My nipples hurt! Oh, goodness me!""
Gamora, Drax the Destroyer and Rocket Raccoon[src]

The Guardians of the Galaxy used the Aero-Rigs in order to fight the Abilisk, with Star-Lord and Rocket Raccoon using them to distract the monster and orbit the creature, giving Gamora the chance she needed to kill it.[1]

Battle on Ego's Planet

"A space suit and an Aero-Rig, I only have one of each. I..."
Rocket Raccoon to Yondu Udonta[src]

At the Battle on Ego's Planet, Rocket and Quill again used the Aero-Rigs to fly around the planet's core, battling the Sovereign.

Quill gave Drax his Aero-Rig so he could fly an unconscious Mantis to safety.

Eventually, Rocket gave Yondu Udonta his last Aero-Rig so he could escape the dying planet. Yondu put on the device and rescued Quill, flying both of them to safety, but dying in the process due to accessing the vacuum of space unprotected.[1]

Capabilities

Aero-Rigs utilizes a wide array of capabilities.

  • Size-Altering: Aero-Rigs can be shrunk down into a thick disk that is located on the user's back and can materialize and dematerialize between forms in a similar fashion to Star-Lord's Helmet.
  • Propulsion: Aero-Rigs can propel the user into the air and allow them to seamlessly hover and fly using its rocket thruster. It does not appear to be limited by altitude, allowing a user to fly into space, though they would need proper isolation from it to survive it.
