Crashing into big screens in the 2014 box office hit Guardians of the Galaxy, Drax the Destroyer is a fan favorite of the younger crowd. Introduced as a man obsessed with avenging the loss of his wife and daughter, killed at the hands of the antagonist Ronan, Drax meets the main character Peter Quill while imprisoned. Helping to break out Rocket, Groot, Gamora and Quill, he becomes part of the team of Guardians adding some humanoid-alien braun. Popular with children, his species does not understand the concept of metaphors, and thus, takes everything super literally.
Some of his iconic lines include:
Rocket Raccoon: [about Drax] Metaphors go over his head.
Drax the Destroyer: NOTHING goes over my head!… My reflexes are too fast, I would catch it.
Peter Quill: [about Gamora] She betrayed Ronan, he’s coming for her. That’s when you…
[draws his finger across his throat in a cutthroat gesture]
Drax the Destroyer: …Why would I want to put my finger on his throat?
Peter Quill: No, that’s the symbol for slicing his throat.
Drax the Destroyer: I would not slice his throat, I would cut his head clean off.
