Marvel has released the short origin story prequels of Groot, Star-Lord, and Rocket Raccoon already in preparation of the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Animated Series, and now the time has come for us to take a closer look at the story of Drax the Destroyer. You’ll remember him as the very literal, revenge-bent force to be reckoned with, albeit with a lesser seen caring and loyal side. Although the videos don’t follow the same timeline as the film, Drax still proves to be very much the same.
Earlier this month there were reports that Marvel’s Blade the Hunter, by Tim Seeley and Logan Faerber was going to be delayed past its expected October release.

“The rocket is both a means of propulsion and a weapon!” We’ve seen how Groot and Star-Lord came to be who they are, and now in Marvel’s latest Guardians of the Galaxy 2-part short, we’re shown how Rocket Raccoon became the scamp we all know and love. Although, as you’ll see after watching the videos, a lot of what makes Rocket who he is was already part of his feisty, snarky personality!

Now, after months of filming, new set photos have surfaced giving us our very first look at, who can be described as, the African Batman. (more…)

Have you signed it yet? (more…)
