Theology with Baby Groot
I was the guest on an episode of God and Comics where Fr. Jonathan, Fr. Matt, Fr. Kyle, and I discussed Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2. We talked about the film's humor and its depiction of surrogate space families. We went in-depth into the theology of Ego the Living Planet, a character who claims a god-like mantle for himself. Does he represent inaccurate images of god in the popular imagination? Or pagan ideas of gods as scaled-up humans? Possibly the only podcast to combine discussion of Thomas Aquinas and Bishop Robert Barron with debates about Drax the Destroyer.
