LET’S TALK GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY
EVERY SINGLE SECOND OF IT WAS WORTH THE WAIT
EVERY SINGLE SECOND OF IT WAS SO B E A U T I F U L
PEOPLE AREN’T KIDDING WHEN THEY SAY THIS IS MARVEL’S MOST VISUALLY STUNNING MOVIE TO DATE. IDC WHAT YOU SAY. IDC.
EVERY SINGLE CHARACTER WAS PERFECT??? AND…
The oldest member of the Guardians made his first appearance in Tales To Astonish #13 (Nov. 1960) as Marvel’s “monster of the week”.
The character was eventually retconned. Groot is an Flora Colossus from Planet X, supposedly the last of his kind. He has a genius level genius level intellect with super strength and super durability (he can regenerate his entire body from one splinter) and despite all he can say is "I am Groot" he’s actually using a high form of communication that only a few can discern.
After getting exiled from his home planet after killing a fellow sapling for brutalizing one of the mammals that lived on his planet, Groot traveled into Kree space and was imprisoned. While in capture he met and befriended Rocket Raccoon. The two were enlisted by Star-Lord to defeat the Phalanx and eventually became mebers of the new Guardians of the Galaxy.
I Am Groot.
And I Dance.
Surprising to no one who knows me, Groot was my absolute favorite thing about Guardians of the Galaxy. I want a Groot.
I want a DANCING Groot.
I just really wanted to animate a tiny dancing tree baby, ok?
(For serious, set some music to it.)
