How "GoTG" Restored Your Faith in Humanityprivate screening
Bill Mantlo, the disabled creator of Rocket Raccoon, deservedly received the Marvel treatment.
Sadly, Mantlo was hit by a car while rollerblading in 1992, which left him badly injured with irreparable brain damage.
Since he couldn’t make it to a theater to see his creation star in the blockbuster film, Marvel attorney David Althoff and vice president David Bogart went to Mantlo and surprised him with a private screening of "GoGT" at his long-term care facility.
"What a incredible day for Bill Mantlo! Marvel hooked Bill up with a private viewing of 'Guardians Of The Galaxy,' and my wife Liz and my beloved cousin Jean assisted Bill throughout, enabling him to sit back, relax and relish in the awesomeness of what is going to be, in my humble opinion, Marvel's Greatest and most siccessful film ever!" wrote Bill's brother Michael on Bill Mantlo's fans Facebook page.
Faith in humanity restored, indeed!
