How Drax The Destroyer Helped An Autistic Kid


Guardians of the Galaxy was a fun movie, but there’s more to it than humor and action. The film was clearly made by people who care. They way they portrayed Drax was especially interesting, and Tumblr user merryweatherblue talked about how Drax’s inability to use metaphors affected his autistic little brother. He says he realizes that Drax wasn’t intended to be autistic, but he appreciates that his brother has a hero he can relate to.

Director James Gunn took notice of the post and shared the above screen cap on his Facebook page.
