Like most people who’ve seen Guardians of the Galaxy, I love Groot! So now I have the DVD, I can finally show five images, captured and cobbled together, to explain why we all love him. Here’s my top five reasons:
5) He is strong!
Be he bringing a hardened convict to heel with only his fingers, or impaling an entire row of baddies on his arm and flailing them around like they’re rag dolls, incidentally flattening their fellows.
4) He is smarter than you think!
Before: near-dead Drax. After: living Drax. Because Groot stabbed his alien physiology with something pointy. Like a doctor.
3) He is adaptable!
Scalpel. Light. Shield. Or just plain growing longer “limbs.”
2) He is kind!
Giving a street urchin girl a flower he grew himself.
1) “We are Groot.”
Need I say more?
Bonus: He comes back to life!
And shows us he’s got moves!
