10 Drax The Destroyer Superpowers That You May Not Be Aware Of

Drax the Destroyer is easily one of the most amazing characters that Marvel has ever adapted onto the silver screen. The character has been played by the actor, Dave Bautista. The MCU has a whole lot of characters just like Dax who are more like comic relief than just plot drivers.

Drax had first come into the spotlight as a small character who had a grudge against the Mad Titan, Thanos in the comic books. Marvel Comics’ creator, Jim Starlin, who had created Drax had wanted Drax to become a supporting character and then be killed off.  But the character had struck through all the odds and became a fan-favourite. In light of this, here we have for you a list of 10 superpowers ofDrax that you were not aware of:

Drax could fly in his early incarnations, and he had been overpowered like the all the other Silver Age superheroes. He could fly and also zoom past heroes like Thor.

2. Green Aura

The Aura power is one a new addition to Drax’s skill. When he gets next to Thanos, the character’s body begins to emit a Green Aura. Drax then used this ability for getting closer to Thanos and rip out his heart. The Green Aura makes Drax stronger, and much more durable.

7. A strength that increases with Rage much like the Hulk

This used to be one of Drax’s abilities way before he had been resurrected from his death during the Annihilation arc. The character had lost most of his powers, and he even had a mental capacity of a child. The character had been underpowered, but this is not the worst. Drax had a strength that was directly proportionate to his anger.

8. Can sense the ‘presence’ of Thanos no matter how far he is

Drax had been created by Thanos’ father and also grandfather for defeating Thanos. For killing someone like the Mad Titan, one would need to have an ability to track him down. Thanos has jumped from one planet to another without anyone really noticing. Drax has been endowed with a psychic sense, and he has imprinted on Thanos.

Drax had made his latest appearance in the movie Infinity War, and its official synopsis is:

“Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk and the rest of the Avengers unite to battle their most powerful enemy yet — the evil Thanos. On a mission to collect all six Infinity Stones, Thanos plans to use the artifacts to inflict his twisted will on reality. The fate of the planet and existence itself has never been more uncertain as everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment”.
