Baltimore Comic-Con Part 3: Groot, Deadpool and Magneto

Aquaman, Groot and family
In Part 3 of my adventures at the Baltimore Comic-Con dressed as Aquaman, I got to meet Groot, Deadpool and Magneto. If you don't know who they are, you will by the end of this blog. All of them are Marvel Comics characters.

WHO IS GROOT? - If you saw last summer's superhero movie called "Guardians of the Galaxy" you'll remember Groot to look like a talking tree.  The tree-like creature known as Groot was captured by the Kree and put on a team with Star-Lord, Bug, Mantis, and Rocket Raccoon. A tree of few words, Groot formed a bond with the creature known as Rocket Raccoon. Forming the Guardians of the Galaxy, Groot and his best friend Rocket travel through space getting into trouble wherever they go.
Aquaman, Deadpool and Magneto

 WHO IS DEADPOOL? - This is a Marvel Comics character that seems to be very popular, but I had no idea about him. Then, I got a pic with him and looked him up.
   Deadpool is a disfigured and mentally unstable mercenary with the superhuman ability of an accelerated healing factor. He is known as the "Merc with a Mouth" because of his talkative nature and tendency to break the fourth wall, which is used by writers to create humorous effect.


WHO IS MAGNETO? - An the archenemy of the X-Men. The character is a powerful "mutant", one of a fictional subspecies of humanity born with superhuman abilities, who has the ability to generate and control magnetic fields. Magneto desires mutants to dominate the human race as he views humans as an outdated species that no longer deserves its continual domination over the world.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
