20 Things That Make No Sense About Drax The Destroyer
Somehow, some way, Drax the Destroyer became one of the most beloved characters in Guardians of the Galaxy. His inability to understand sarcasm and his blunt delivery made for great comedic moments, but his conviction to avenge his family showed an emotional side that fans could sympathize with.
However, Drax is not without faults. More often than not, his actions and even his back story leave people trying, but failing to connect the dots.
In the comic books, Drax is originally a human and only became an alien being after Kronos took his spirit and placed it in a powerful body made to eventually destroy Thanos. Where is that mentioned in the Guardians of the Galaxy movies?
One of Drax’s best quality is his lack of understanding of sarcasm and metaphors but every now and then he seems to get sarcastic jokes without a problem. Is he completely literal or is he slowly learning?
We get it. There is a lot going on in Marvel’s Cinematic Universe. New characters are introduced left and right with charged back stories and individual agendas. It’s hard to keep up with every single one of them and get everything a hundred percent right. Maybe it can be blamed on the writers or the lack of uber attention to detail.
The result, however, is inconsistency in character traits. Drax may be one of the best Guardians but his story isn’t devoid of plot holes.
