Drax’s Power Level Was Finally Fixed in MCU Phase 4

Drax’s Power Level Was Finally Fixed in MCU Phase 4

The short adventure that follows Mantis (Pom Klementieff) and Drax (Dave Bautista) as they search for the ideal Christmas gift for Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) in the Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special finally fixes Drax’s power level. The Marvel Cinematic Universe has now added to the holiday cheer with The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special, written and directed by James Gunn, which serves as the final chapter of Phase 4 of the MCU. This comes after the MCU introduced a Halloween special with Werewolf By Night.

The Guardians of the Galaxy holiday special features the remaining members of the titular team getting ready for Christmas, with Mantis stressing over finding Peter the ideal gift while he’s still mourning Gamora’s passing. Mantis and Drax determine that Kevin Bacon, Peter’s childhood hero, is the best gift they can give him. Mantis and Drax, as predicted, cause amusing commotion on Earth while searching for and attempting to apprehend Kevin Bacon, but it’s all worth it in the end. The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special also gives the audience an opportunity to learn more about Mantis and Drax, who are largely absent from the films. Drax’s power level was also fixed during this episode by showing how strong and resistant he truly is.

GOTG Rebuilds Drax The Destroyer’s Strength

In Guardians of the Galaxy, Drax made his MCU debut as a thief out to exact revenge on Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace) for killing his family. As a result, he went on a galactic rampage that gave him the moniker “The Destroyer.” Due to his Kylosian heritage, Drax has superhuman stamina, agility, durability, and strength—the latter two of which are his primary abilities. Drax’s incredible strength has enabled him to easily rip machines in half with his bare hands, break through stone and metal without difficulty, and, of course, this has allowed him to defeat numerous foes. However, because to his durability, he can resist attacks that he would ordinarily be unable to kill any other species.

However, Marvel diminished Drax’s strength level in order to make him a humorous character in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and has kept him that way ever since. Although the Yaka Arrow is made of Yaka metal and shouldn’t have hurt Drax as much as it did, this fit with Drax being changed into a comedic character in one of the many post-credits scenes in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Drax was stabbed by the Yaka Arrow as Kraglin (Sean Gunn) tried to get used to it. Fortunately, the Holiday Special has set the weak and comical Drax aside and restored his strength by demonstrating both how quickly he can flip a car due to his strength and that he is immune to harm by several gunshots—and it accomplished this without losing the character’s humorous undertone.

Why Drax Was Made So Weak by the MCU

In the Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special, Dave Bautista portrays Drax and is dressed in a holiday sweater.
When Ronan was defeated at the end of Guardians of the Galaxy, Drax’s desire for vengeance significantly decreased, giving way to the comedic Drax even though he vowed revenge against Thanos since it was him who ordered the murders that left him without a family. Initially, Drax was motivated by retaliation for what Ronan did to his family. After that, the MCU concentrated more on making Drax a more endearing and amusing character, which succeeded, albeit at the expense of his abilities. In Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, Marvel appears to have struck a balance between hilarious Drax and the true power of his strength and longevity.
