"The King" is not afraid to go into battle, in fact he wants to be the one to lead the Guardians into battle. A thespian at heart, The King lives in the city that loves its celebrities, yet when he walks amongst them, he is the biggest star in the room.
He's comfortable on the red carpet but far more likely to be found at a director's house discussing his latest film. He counts many of the town's celebs as close friends but super stardom isn't his priority. Instead the King focuses on much grander pursuits and would rather be known for his skill and humanitarianism than for the superhuman feats he performs.
Unless he really collapses, I don't see him going anywhere. I've been very impressed with his composure and maturity. Once the regular season started, he was a different guy; it was like game on and almost as if he's been around for a long time.
