That Awesome Moment When A Superhero Is A Role Model To A Little Boy Who Needed One

WARNING: Spoilers for Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy."

Whether or not Drax is technically a "superhero" might be up for debate (his full name is Drax the Destroyer), but after reading this girl's story about what the character means to her little brother, who has autism, I'm having a hard time thinking of him as anything but a hero.

It's stories like this that are a great reminder of why representation is so so so so so so so so important in mainstream media.
