SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!
Chris Pratt visits the Los Angeles Children’s Hospital this week in full GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY PETER QUILL / STAR-LORD costume (which he kept for this very reason) to cheer up kids.
This guy! :D Well done!
- Ms. Marvel #7
- Batgirl #35
Love everything about this <3
Batgirl #35 (Batgirl of Burnside) (Cameron Stewart, Brenden Fletcher, Babs Tarr) comes out October 8th, 2014.
Ms Marvel #7 (G.Willow Wilson, cover by Jamie McKelvie) was released today!
Go get them / pre-order them!
I took my little brother (who falls on the autism spectrum) to see Guardians of the Galaxy and after this scene he lit up like a Christmas tree and screamed “He’s like me! He can’t do metaphors!” And for the rest of the film my brother stared at Drax in a state of rapture.
So for the last 6 days I have heard my brother repeatedly quote all of the Drax lines from the movie verbatim (one of his talents), begin studying vocabulary test words, and tell everyone he knows that people with autism can also be superheroes.
Now I am not saying that Drax the Destroyer is, or was ever, intended to be autistic. All I am saying is that it warmed my heart to see my brother have an opportunity to identify himself with a character known for his strength, badassness, and honor. And that is pretty damn awesome.
So while I adored Guardians of the Galaxy as a great fun loving film with cool characters I can do nothing but thank Marvel Studios and Dave Bautista for finally bringing a superhero to the screen that my little brother can relate to.
I really hope James Gunn sees this.

under the cut for spoilers and probably unpopular opinions
Much as I had adored GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY (I saw it 3 times in the first week!), there were some glaring problems that the above article succinctly describes.
Hot Toys displayed their GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY action figures (Star-Lord, Rocket, Groot, etc) at San Diego Comic-con this year, and now studio pictures of their 1/6 scale GAMORA figure, modeled on actor Zoë Saldaña, has been released.
The detailing is extrordinary. This is probably one of the more accurate renders in an action figure I’ve seen.
GAMORA is one of my favourite comic book characters. I loved Saldana’s performance in the GUARDIANS movie. This toy, therefore, may become my first HOT TOYS 1/6th scale action figure purchase after all :)

It’s been GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY week here. Not sorry :)
The GUARDIANS #LEGO sets have been awesome collections & highly coveted: the ROCKET RACCOON Warbird San Diego Comic-con set was sold out every day of the convention, for example.
eOnline released a photo of Dave Bautista in full DRAX costume and makeup holding a tiny LEGO mini-figure version of his character.
Full disclosure: we squee’ed.
There’s also a LEGO Super Heroes poster with its own version of the GUARDIANS poster in even brighter colours than the original!
OK ‘fess up: how many times have you see GUARDIANS in the theatres so far? *cough*three*cough*
Great news emerged from SDCC: Guardians Of The Galaxy 2 is set for cinematic release July 28, 2017! Can’t wait!
