this episode was a gift for so, so many reasons.
i always end up thinking about the economic damage in superhero movies
make a movie.
the movie would be set entirely in the office of one over-worked insurance agent answering phone calls and in the window behind him we see various Super Heroes destroying things

I took my little brother (who falls on the autism spectrum) to see Guardians of the Galaxy and after this scene he lit up like a Christmas tree and screamed “He’s like me! He can’t do metaphors!” And for the rest of the film my brother stared at Drax in a state of rapture.
So for the last 6 days I have heard my brother repeatedly quote all of the Drax lines from the movie verbatim (one of his talents), begin studying vocabulary test words, and tell everyone he knows that people with autism can also be superheroes.
Now I am not saying that Drax the Destroyer is, or was ever, intended to be autistic. All I am saying is that it warmed my heart to see my brother have an opportunity to identify himself with a character known for his strength, badassness, and honor. And that is pretty damn awesome.
So while I adored Guardians of the Galaxy as a great fun loving film with cool characters I can do nothing but thank Marvel Studios and Dave Bautista for finally bringing a superhero to the screen that my little brother can relate to.

#imagine being Cas at this moment though#it’s the first time in a vessel in thousands of years #all that might and grace seeping out of human skin #the lights burst around him but he pays it no mind #he can tell them where every sigil they’ve scrawled originated from and ways they could improve their work #he is so much knowledge and power #and he’s here on his mission to talk to the righteous man #the man he saved from perdition #and ugh baby you just don’t even know how radically he will change your existence #after eons of living #it will take this one human man to turn everything on it’s head #and for him #you will be the exception to every rule he has #you will be the best friend he’s ever had#and you two just have no idea what’s coming for you #and I will still be telling your story and its beauty when I am old and grey (via badwolfintheimpala)
this is beautiful
