Groot is a humanoid plant (flora colossus) from Taluhnia that grew from a twig that was saved from the original Groot by Rocket. He is a member of the Guardians of the Galaxy

Groot and his new allies managed to kill off all of Thanos's forces, Thanos came to Wakanda. The Mad Titan completely overpowered Groot and the heroes and retrieved the Mind Stone, completing the Infinity Gauntlet. Groot disintegrated into ashes alongside Sam Wilson, T'Challa, Bucky Barnes and Wanda Maximoff when Thanos wiped out half of every civilization in the universe with the completed Infinity Gauntlet but was later restored by Bruce Banner.
