They are there, but the problem is that Bautista himself does not have large nipples, and they are located low and lateral as can be seen in the below photo: And, if you look closely in the below photo, you can see the protrusion of his left nipple breaking the line of the curve on his pectoral (left side as well, right side as you look at it): So, he has ...

There was a deleted scene that addresses this within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. David Bautista explains in an interview with Zap2It, but specifically skirts the question itself. Some of that background was explained in a scene that never made the final cut of the film. Drax has some elaborate tattoos in the movie, but the story never touches on them. ...

Drax's "rap sheet" indicates that he was imprisoned for 22 counts of murder and a further 5 counts of Grievous Bodily Harm, presumably while searching for those responsible for his family's murder.

Drax in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is not the same character that appears in the canon Marvel Comics Universe. Visually and thematically they share similarities, but the overall character design is quite different. Neither Universe has revealed to date the actual meanings of the tattoos that adorn their bodies. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Earth-...

Not really In the comics, Drax evolved a lot. He was introduced by Jim Starlin in his original 1970s Thanos story in Iron Man and Captain Marvel, as a superbeing created by the Titan Chronos from a dying man in order to combat Thanos. This man's daughter, incidentally, became the Avenger Moondragon. This first version of Drax was very powerful (among other ...

No. He's not mastered the ability to stand "so still that he becomes invisible". They simply didn't notice him because he was standing in the dark and not moving. As Quill and Gamora got lost in each other, a loud crunch rippled through the room. They looked across the room to find Drax, standing in the shadows, eating a bag of zarg-nuts. ... "...

Having read a lot of comics with Drax in them over the course of my life, there's no one occurrence that I can recall where Drax had issues with metaphors. In fact, on his very first panel in Iron Man #55, he already uses metaphors: So this sets the stage for Drax. Even 43 years later, he seems to have no issue interpreting and reacting to people's emotions ...

Much like the line from Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country; maybe not all races have nipples in the same place. (Obviously the quote from the Star Trek movie was "not everyone keeps their genitals in the same place" after the big guy in prison was kicked in the knees.) Drax is not human, just humanoidesque, so maybe what he calls nipples, we call ...

No Here we see Drax having no trouble with metaphors whatsoever: Drax says that he has relived his memories "as many times as there are stars in the cosmos." This seems like an obvious metaphor (well, a simile really, but who's keeping track): "as numerous as the stars in the sky," "as many as the sands of the sea." He certainly cannot be speaking ...

Drax the Destroyer started his career (in the Marvel Earth-616 canon) as a Human spirit tied to cosmically-enhanced soil. He would later be killed and reanimated with a body that appears human with strange sigils on his shoulders and/or back. Drax in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is not the same character that appears in the canon Marvel Comics Universe. In ...

It's likely due to the fact that he now lives with the other Guardians. It happens in real life all the time. If you spend enough time with a different group of people, you start to sound like them. You see this all the time when people in the United States move to a different place in the United States. They start picking up the common phrases and accent of ...

Yes in comics Drax can be invisible, these are some of his powers: Superhuman strength, durability, speed and endurance. Flight. Rays of energy. Expert in the use of knives. Knows the location of Thanos at any moment. Psychic detection of others. Invisibility. But if you refer to the MCU, it does not have that capacity, it's just a reference to its ability ...

His origins and/or species is different depending on which Marvel continuity you reference: Comics Version: One of a kind creation Within the comics 616 continuity, Drax is one-of-a-kind. Mentor and Kronos put the soul of dying human Arthur Douglas into a newly-created body, intended as a weapon against Thanos. He was later killed and afterwards ...

While Arthur Douglas was originally a normal human, the current comic version of Drax is made of... dirt + a whole lot of magic. Marvel Wikia explains: Kronos and Mentor then fashioned a humanoid body from the Earth's soil, granted it superhuman powers, and cast Douglas' spirit inside it. Thus they created the being who would become known as Drax the ...
