Drax The Destroyer!

Here we see Jim Starlin's Drax the Destroyer in full on destroyin' mode as he attacks the Mad God Thanos with Death looking on. Since Drax is risen from the dead and Thanos worships death, it's a most appropriate image. This is the classic Drax, the original design which I have to believe was based in part on Dr.Weird, a fanzine hero Starlin had worked on previously.

Here's that double page spread from Captain Marvel #32 in all its original black and white glory. Beautiful!

Rip Off


  1. I know he is a different character but the appearance of Drax and the golden age Destroyer very similar do you think?

    1. I see what you mean. Both have the widow's peak cap and the pirate boots.
