"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.
I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
