"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.
[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.
