The following story was shared by Merryweatherblue, who took her little brother to see the new ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’. During the movie, her brother, who has autism, noticed that he shared a similarity with Drax the Destroyer, one of the superheroes, and that warmed her heart.

Although she acknowledges that Drax isn’t intended to be on the autism spectrum, her brother was given the opportunity to identify himself with a character known for his strength and honor, and that’s pretty awesome.
