Created by Stan Lee, Jack Kirby and Larry Lieber, Groot first appeared in Tales to Astonish #13. An extra-terrestrial, sentient tree-like creature, the original Groot first appeared as an invader that intended to capture humans for experimentation. He was reintroduced in 2006 as a noble, heroic being in 2006 appearing in the crossover comic storyline “Annihilation: Conquest”. After this he went onto star in the spin-off series Guardians of the Galaxy, joining the team of the same name. Vin Diesel voiced the character in the Guardian’s series of films and thus the Avengers films across the 2010s. He is originally a Flora Colossus from Planet X, the capital of the branch worlds. His powers include the ability to absorb wood as food, the ability to regenerate and he can control trees and plants using them to attack others. Groot has seemingly been killed multiple times, regrowing from a sprig each time. The 2nd wave of Avengers Infinity War Pop! Vinyl Figures has landed!
