Ever since I saw Groot for the first time in the teaser for Guardians of the Galaxy I have loved this character for his unique Chewbacca-like persona in the film. Of course, the original Groot would end up perishing in the first Guardians movie but, being a tree and all, he would live on through his offspring, another humanoid tree creature named Groot.
His evolution in the franchise has been one of the most literally evolving stories in the MCU and I’m so excited to take a deeper look at his posters. Enjoy!

This poster is so cool. The original Groot was obviously of a much kinder variety. The pleasant smile on his face highlights his cheery personality and the blue background is just…beautiful.

Groot is one of the most unique characters in the MCU for his tree-like form and his simple “I am Groot” vocabulary. When I first saw him I didn’t know what to make of the tree hero but now I can’t imagine the Marvel Cinematic Universe without him. So, on this exciting week of Who’s Your Favorite it’s all about the Groot. I hope you enjoy. 🙂
When Groot first came onto the Marvel scene he immediately attracted the love of most fans with his Chewbacca-esque personality and role within the Guardians of the Galaxy. He was sweet, at times disturbingly violent despite his benevolent disposition, but most importantly, he was as heroic as any hero has ever been.
He sacrificed his life to save his friends and it honestly is one of the bravest moments from any hero in the MCU. Now every time I watch that moment when he says to Rocket, “We are Groot” I get a little teary because he was so cool.
I Am Groot. Translated: RIP Classic Groot.
