Biography

Background

Not much is known about Howard's past, but he is a extraterrestrial anthropomorphic duck that enjoyed drinking, partying, and telling jokes to woman. Before the events of Guardians of the Galaxy, he was captured by the collector Taneleer Tivan, and was kept in his museum on Knowhere.

Guardians of the Galaxy

In 2014, Howard was still held captive in the museum until his slave Carina unleashed the power of the Orb in an attempt to kill Tivan, but only managed to destroy the museum. After the incident, Howard and the Collector are seen drinking, and the former wad disgusted that Tivan allowed Cosmo to lick his face. It's revealed in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 that Howard left Knowhere and moved to Contraxia, where he was seen on a date with a woman at the Iron Lotus.

Battle of Earth

In 2018, Howard survived the decimation, where the mad titan Thanos succeeded in wiping out half of the universe with the infinity stones. It's assumed that Howard stayed on the planet Contraxia, but in 2023, he was teleported to Earth alongside the Ravagers to help the heroes fight Thanos and his army. Howard and his allies witnessed the defeat of the mad titan, but at the cost of Iron Man's life by using the infinity stones.
