"That would have given me the opportunity to show different sides of Drax, emotionally and physically as well," Bautista continued. "Because, if you notice, Drax, although he looks like a badass, you look at him and he looks terrifying, but Drax gets his ass kicked more than any other Marvel character."

When Drax first appeared way back in IRon Man #55 he was intelligent, deadly serious and was able to match Thanos in strength and power and only lost in their fight due to the planet they were on blew up and he was caught off guard.

Subsequent appearances of Drax in his first incarnation, he was intelligent but laser focused on his programmed hate of Thanos, which was his weakness. He later gets his full memory restored which makes him even more dangerously enraged against Thanos.

Drax gets frustrated in that it was Mar-Vell who defeated Thanos and he goes into space. He later missed the fight against Thanos which ended when Warlock turned Thanos to stone.

He blames MAr-Vell and his single minded hatred gets focused on Mar-Vell. They team up to go to Titan to smash Thanos' legacy and Drax eventually changes his mind about Mar-Vell and leaves again.

Marv later perishes, and soon after Drax perishes after his own daughter Moondragon fries his brain.

in the 90's, Death revives Thanos and upgrades him, so Kronos responds by reviving and power boosting Drax to Thanos' new level but didn't account for how Drax perished last time. Thus Drax new, second incarnation is mentally flawed and is no smarter then the cartoon version of the Dinobot Grimlock.

Sadly this condition lasted for a long time and Drax basically was comedy relief. He eventually gets restored then later changed in his present day incarnation.

However I have always thought his present incarnation was a major downgrade, not an improvement.

If they wanted to have an amped up cosmic character in the MCU movies, instead of shoe-horning Carol Danvers into the movies, they could have amped Drax up into his original cosmic version.
