I've always loved Vin Diesel's animated roles. The iconic scene from Iron Giant in which Hogarth attempts to teach the Giant simple words like "tree" and "rock" is one of my favorites. It only seemed natural that the Giant and Groot might get into some interesting, albeit limited, elocution lessons.
As much as I love all the Iron Giant shirt designs, they all have the same flaw. They forget about Hogarth. Hogarth is just as much the star of the film as the Iron Giant is, and I wanted to remind people of that with this design. One of the most memorable quotes from the movie is "You are who you choose to be" and it's what Hogarth uses to sway the Giant into remembering that he is not a gun... he is Superman.
