Sneak Peek the (hideous) new "Guardians Of The Galaxy Deluxe Adult Overhead 'Groot' Mask":
"...from 'Rubies', this 100% polyester, officially licensed 'Groot' mask, adapts the character from the movie "Guardians of the Galaxy" with one size fitting most teens and adults..."
'Groot' (aka the 'Monarch of Planet X') was created for Marvel Comics by writer Stan Lee and illustrators Jack Kirby and Dick Ayers.
The character debuted in Marvel's "Tales to Astonish" #13 (November 1960), as an extraterrestrial, sentient creature, who was an invader intending to capture humans for experimentation.
The character was then reconfigured into a heroic, noble being in 2006, and appeared in the crossover comic book storyline "Annihilation: Conquest".
He went on to star in the spin-off series, "Guardians of the Galaxy", joining the team of the same name.
