Sure, the new Hipster Hulk would fit in pretty well in Portland, but I think Baymax would too. And of course, there’s more to Oregon than just the hipster capital of the world. But Baymax represents those things too. He’s selfless, caring, and always looking for ways to improve people’s health. Who doesn’t want a guy like that representing their state?
But if he goes with the hipster vibe, Baymax and Hiro could ride fancy, “artisan” bikes around town, drink $10 coffee, eat some avocado toast, and then drink some craft beer at the end of the day. Maybe they can even make an appearance on Portlandia?
Baymax wouldn’t be the only Disney character to be welcomed to Oregon either. The mascot for the University of Oregon is based on Donald Duck and is the only team mascot to be based on a Disney character. Maybe Baymax could get Donald to chill out for a minute? I can’t imagine those two getting along but who knows?
Beyond living the ultimate hipster lifestyle and trying to give Donald Duck a much-needed hug, Baymax would also help people in need. He can do just about anything he’s programmed for so there’s no reason he couldn’t save people from danger.
It’s even shown in the end credits of the Kingdom Hearts III game. Hiro and Baymax save a car from falling off a cliff. Cat get stuck in a tree? Call Baymax and Hiro instead of the fire department. Baymax will even give you a big hug once his job is done.
Forget the beaver, Oregon. You should be called The Baymax State.
