The sole surviving member of the Zen-Whoberi, Gamora, was saved as a child by Thanos. Through Thanos' augmentation and training she became a highly skilled and feared galactic assassin. Using her new formidable skills and abilities, she gained the reputation and title of The Deadliest Woman in the Universe.*

----

Appreciation for Gamora. Discuss your favorite Gamora moments, why you like or love her, what would you like to see in her future appearances, and post images or scans of this deadly galactic assassin. You will probably see a lot more Gamora (it's already happening) while Marvel pushes the Cosmic line as her popularity will increase--whether by a significant amount or large-- when she makes her movie debut in the Guardians of The Galaxy set to be released August 1, 2014.

For a comprehensive Gamora profile (http://www.writeups.org/fiche.php?id=638) I once cleaned up her 1980s sourcebook illustration. Nothing Earth-shattering but I like it.

Haven't read her earlier stuff (yet!), but she is enjoyable in the new GoTG.

She and Elektra should totally team up. They're both the deadliest ladies of their respective realms, afterall!

Ah yeah, I was just thinking about that earlier. Not only is the idea cool, but Del Mundo is the artist for Elektra and he did the GoTG Infinite Comic featuring Gamora! So combine all that and it'll be incredible.

I realize that the movie outfit is sort of a "start-off" look, but I sincerely hope that Marvel Studios moves away from "FoX-Men"-ing the looks of the Guardians. By which I mean, giving them drab looking outfits that any person can wear and it would look the same.

Visually, the Guardians are about as diverse looking as characters can get, so there's no way anyone's going to confuse Drax with Peter Quill. I just wish their outfits had a bit more personality...or will eventually look, if the movie turns out to be good and successful and there's a sequel.

Yeah, because that doesn't look distinctive at all. That doesn't look sexy while not being "porny" at all. That doesn't homage several of her costumes while still making it at least somewhat practical at all.

Not many people may know this but if you read her original appearences in the 1970's Warlock series Gamora was a girl that Thanos saved from an alternate future where the Magus Universal Church killed her people. Thanos brought her backnin time and raised her to necome the ultimate secret weapon to assassinate the Magus since she would be a time anomoly he could not detect.

Then during The Infinity Watch in the 90's Jim Starlin changed her origin saying Thanos rescued her after the Badoon killed her race. There was never any explanation for this except to say that her future had been eradicated by Adam Warlock when he destroyed the strands of hos fate to avoid becomking the Magus. It was never mentioned again either way.

Love Gamora and think she's been pretty well-portrayed by Bendis in the current book.

Would love to see her look in the books changed a bit though:
-lose the stormtrooper suit or reserve it for deep space missions
-wouldn't mind the movie look, or similar
-hair should be long and black, not green. Is the current run the first time she's had green hair?

Hey all! Still kind of new to the GotG / Marvel Cosmic world. While there've definitely been books that have been released featuring classic Star-Lord, Rocket Raccoon, and Groot stories, the same cannot be said for Gamora. Are there any classic stories that you would recommend for Gamora?

Zoe did perfect justice to Gamora.

Punisher007
08-10-2014, 08:25 AM
I quite liked that she was essentially the teams moral compass for most of the movie, and the only one taking things completely seriously. I find it highly amusing that the "daughter" of Thanos, deadly assassin, and associate of Ronan the Accuser served that function. Oh and thank you Zoe for giving me what has already become one of my favorite movie phrases ever.

Try the Adam Warlock collection for classic Gamora. Also Warlock and the Infinity Watch collections.

Some have complained that shes not deadly enough but back in her early appearences she was dangerous yes, but she was also the one who betrayed Thanos and was blind to just how evil he was. She was the only member of the infinity watch that had a true moral compass and showed great amounts of heart.

So glad Gamora has an appreciation thread of her own now. Zoe Saldana was awesome as her in the movie! I just find it so weird someone like Gamora has made her big screen debut before Wonder Woman, but it's awesome too. Hopefully the movie will make Gamora a bit more popular and mainstream in terms of other Marvel females.

I don't know how many of you all saw it, but they totally punked Gamora on Avengers Assemble last Sunday. Widow basically evades an attack from her and says, "Not on your best day, Gamora." And then that's pretty much the closest Gamora gets to Widow. I was never biased against either character but after watching the show pull that stunt, I was just done with Black Widow and Avengers Assemble. When that show really wants to make the Avengers shine, they will nerf anybody with extreme prejudice.

A summary by stingnewell (http://community.comicbookresources.com/showthread.php?14092-From-the-farthest-corners-of-space-A-Marvel-Cosmic-Appreciation/page3)

Gamora

http://i.imgur.com/0ZZctyk.jpg

Gamora is the last of her species, the Zen Whoberi, who were exterminated by the Badoon (in her original timeline, her species was exterminated by the Universal Church of Truth). Thanos found the child and decided to use her as a weapon. Gamora was raised and trained by Thanos to assassinate the Magus, an evil alternate version of Adam Warlock. Thanos showed her little kindness during her childhood, but Gamora was very loyal to the man who promised her the opportunity to avenge the death of her family. Gamora became very proficient in the martial arts, earning the nickname "The deadliest woman in the whole galaxy". When she was a teenager, Thanos took her on a trip to Tartoonla # 7. Gamora disobeyed Thanos's orders, and due to this came into conflict with a group of thugs. She was greatly outnumbered, and despite her skills she was defeated and then raped by the assailants. Thanos found her half dead, and in turn murdered all of her assailants and restored her to health, cybernetically enhancing her to superhuman levels.

http://i.imgur.com/oz00ANx.png

As an adult, Gamora was sent as an assassin against the Universal Church of the Truth, quickly becoming feared by its agents, the Black Knights. She exacted revenge for the genocide of her race by killing every member of the church involved before the event actually occurred. Gamora met and teamed up with Adam Warlock, who wanted to stop his older version. She even managed to get close to the Magus but failed her assassination in the last second. Together with Warlock, Pip the Troll and Thanos, Gamora fought to escape the Black Knights of the Universal Church of Truth and Magus's Death Squad. She was then assigned by Thanos to protect Adam Warlock, but she became suspicious of Thanos's plans, and was then attacked by Drax the Destroyer.

Eventually the Magus was defeated, but Thanos revealed himself as an even greater threat. Gamora aided Captain Mar-Vell, Drax, and the Avengers against Thanos. Gamora and Pip tried to prevent Thanos from destroying all life in the universe. Gamora attempted to slay Thanos, but he mortally wounded her, and destroyed Pip's mind. Adam Warlock found them, and Gamora warned Adam of Thanos's plans, and Adam absorbed their souls into his Soul Gem. When Adam Warlock died as well, his spirit was reunited with that of his friends in "Soulworld" within the Soul Gem.

She doesn't seem very deadly anymore. More a shadow of her former self. All she does is get beaten up pretty badly by anyone and everyone in GOG.

I agree, that was my problem with the movie too there just wasn't any writing for the character or shining moments.

In the new ongoing Pearlman said she will be exploring "the time in Gamora’s life where she went from being Thanos’ pet assassin to realizing that she was capable of so much more" and it "kicks off on Gamora’s 18th birthday, we get to meet her when she is still entrenched as Thanos’ adopted daughter" The book Is going to be about Revenge for the genocide of her people.

I can only hope it's going to be compelling at least now that she won't need to share spotlight with other members of GOTG and the new ongoing is based on her past.

So, is continuity just completely out the window now? The comics universe is now aping the movies? Nebula is now a robot, born a robot, and is raised by Thanos? You know, rather than a flesh and blood space pirate who claimed to be Thanos's relative, drew his ire, was destroyed and then put back together as an android? Does anybody even bother to read character bios before writing comics anymore? Or is the only prerequisite watching a movie?

I really enjoyed it but yeah...I was expecting it to be pretty MCU-heavy but even so it still bothered me some. But it was a good first issue and the art is really good so I'm not disappointed. Unfortunately I didn't feel like I really got to know Gamora's "voice" in this issue so I can't really say. I'm just hoping it's not too similar to the MCU and I don't think it will tbh. I like how it's not afraid to be a darker book. That'll separate it for sure.

The Nebula thing is especially bad considering the issue of Thanos that came out the exact same day (#2) had Nebula in it and specifically referenced her being a space pirate that pretended to be Thanos's grand daughter and receiving his wrath because of it.

The two back stories directly contradict each other. Thanos had nothing to do with Nebula before she claimed to be his grand daughter. The Gamora book is clearly either set in the MCU, is poorly researched, or is a retcon, which is made even more irritating being released the same day that the Thanos book actually got her back story right.

Gamora is clearly taking it's cue from the MCU from transferring the redesign of MCU Nebula to comic and having the two women continue relating as sisters but there is where the major retcons stops. Most of her backstory prior to breaking away from her adopted father's influence is mostly untold. They can do whatever they want with it. Nebula's story in Gamora might be contradictory to Thanos #2 but her delusion to being related to Thanos gives the writer free reign to explore her relationship with these two however they want.

We are doing flashback a little bit, especially with some of the stories in the gap between Bendis's conclusion and where we pick up with the team......Gamora's solo story in that particular part of the publishing plan is one of my favorite scripts, with a lot of potential for future exploitation. Even though it is an aggressive schedule, hopefully, we've hidden that cost. We've been paying that down for a while.

Except that what was written (see Warlock and the Infinity Watch, Yule Memory--which Perlman inexplicably remembers, despite ignoring it) is blatantly contradicted by this.

This isn't the relationship she and Thanos had, which is borne out again by their earliest "contemporary" interactions (Warlock and the Infinity Watch...again).

The book is overwriting the established history with MCU history.

Now, to be fair, it's possible someone else started this chain by ignoring/being ignorant of that relationship in a bunch of the more recent GotG books (which I don't [want to] read).

Loved Gamora #1 and #2. Fortunately I have never read previous histories and can enjoy this run on it's own merits. Your analysis was so far off based on dusty continuities no one else cares about. You forget Thanos and what he does and how it is perceived by others is a constant ethical quicksand. This book was one I almost skipped because of it's schedule delay and the fact that Legendary Starlord/Starlord and Drax were so mediocre as to be beyond belief. If you want to encounter some real crap deal with those two.

I liked how the Ultimates and Alpha Flight felt really bad about taking down Gamora down and seeing again just how unstoppable she really is.

Although I have a feeling I missed something so if anyone knows please let me know, was there another comic book that explained how Thanos escaped? Because this seemed to come out of nowhere for me.

Also wonder how this will lead her to be back with the Guardians again, will she escape or will they set her free?

Rider reminiscing about Gamora, i wonder where this story is going?

So, is continuity just completely out the window now? The comics universe is now aping the movies? Nebula is now a robot, born a robot, and is raised by Thanos? You know, rather than a flesh and blood space pirate who claimed to be Thanos's relative, drew his ire, was destroyed and then put back together as an android? Does anybody even bother to read character bios before writing comics anymore? Or is the only prerequisite watching a movie?

Uggh.

Marvel editorial have long since given up on continuity because a lot of readers with short attention spans, love this lazy type of storytelling.

They didn't go in to how Thanos escaped. I only remember Thanos talking Conner Simm into breaking him loose and then he fought all the Ultimates but they bested him LOL! His solo started right after that.

Alright, thanks, I did know about what happened in the Ultimates, but like you said, he got captured again. Given we know the Guardians finale is ending with a throw down with Thanos, I wonder if that means it'll happen before or after the events of his current solo story.

I wouldn't say Bendis dislikes her he just has no interest in making her look good. Look at what he did to Kitty, i can barely stand her now and he was soooo in to taking her to space,

Anyway, Duggan is really likes the current Gamora solo so he "might" do flashbacks and his stories always uplifts ever member of a team at least we have that to look forward to :)

There is a lot of parallels weaving through the stories that are being told in this book. I knew that the Vestigials would be important but i didn't know they were going to be Zen-Whoberis. They seem like they have turned into the Brotherhood of Badoon waiting for their queen, Gamora to populate Ubliex lol! while also associating with a young Queen whose subject had a hand in killing almost all of their race.

I love this little twist/juxtaposition they did at the end of the comic. This comic is one of my favorite from Marvel even though this comic is continuity light (which usually aggravates me), I think the overall story and art are good enough to where it doesn't weigh down the comic. I still want to know what's Nebula's new/old backstory.

It's another powerful story for Gamora within GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #17; where after she's fighting Alpha Flight & the Ultimates, Carol reveals to her not only that Thanos has escaped from where he's been detailed, but also she's making it clear that she rather let her (in order to hunt for her 'father') instead of locking her up because of her break-ins attempt during CWII.........Unfortunately, not only does Gamora refused to believe CapM; but also breaking into the Triskelion, only to end up being imprisoned herself after ignoring Carol's infos and warnings.

.......and just when you think thing couldn't get any worse for Gamora....!! :eek:

But the main focus of this Issue is Richard is trying to tell her that the Cancerverse creature is within him, but keeps getting interrupted (and/or distracted) through various circumstances.

Now, the readers might or might not have another appearance of Gamora next issue but one can never tell......still an excellent story, nonetheless.

http://i.imgur.com/IKfFk3W.jpg

Marvel.com: She has gone through a lot. Brushes with death, having her spirit inside the Soul Gem, and more. This probably makes her more of a risk-taker, since other dangers might seem less severe by comparison.

Gerry Duggan: I think the experience of having died and come back to life would always change someone. It’ll be interesting, as we explore the repercussions of a resurrection. That’s something that you can expect to see in the future pages of GUARDIANS.

Marvel.com: Before her time with the Guardians of the Galaxy, we saw Gamora as a fighter basically out on her own, which probably contributed to her reputation.

Gerry Duggan: Yes, and I think the gift that Brian Michael Bendis gave her, the ability to transcend her sworn vengeance and turn away from that, may have some other repercussions. And you’ll see how she has changed moving forward.

Marvel.com: Now she has something to fight for. She cares about the Guardians, and having a reason to fight, in many ways, makes her even stronger.

Gerry Duggan: She’s willing to fight and die for her friends. That’s something you’re always going to want when you’re in a high-risk environment, and on a high-risk team like the Guardians. But you know, she will also be causing her friends some distress; not intending to do so, but it comes with the territory. You hope your friends will be there to get you out of trouble, but she’s going to be getting her friends into trouble, as well.

Gamora

http://i.imgur.com/0ZZctyk.jpg

Gamora is the last of her species, the Zen Whoberi, who were exterminated by the Badoon (in her original timeline, her species was exterminated by the Universal Church of Truth). Thanos found the child and decided to use her as a weapon. Gamora was raised and trained by Thanos to assassinate the Magus, an evil alternate version of Adam Warlock. Thanos showed her little kindness during her childhood, but Gamora was very loyal to the man who promised her the opportunity to avenge the death of her family. Gamora became very proficient in the martial arts, earning the nickname "The deadliest woman in the whole galaxy". When she was a teenager, Thanos took her on a trip to Tartoonla # 7. Gamora disobeyed Thanos's orders, and due to this came into conflict with a group of thugs. She was greatly outnumbered, and despite her skills she was defeated and then raped by the assailants. Thanos found her half dead, and in turn murdered all of her assailants and restored her to health, cybernetically enhancing her to superhuman levels.

http://i.imgur.com/oz00ANx.png

As an adult, Gamora was sent as an assassin against the Universal Church of the Truth, quickly becoming feared by its agents, the Black Knights. She exacted revenge for the genocide of her race by killing every member of the church involved before the event actually occurred. Gamora met and teamed up with Adam Warlock, who wanted to stop his older version. She even managed to get close to the Magus but failed her assassination in the last second. Together with Warlock, Pip the Troll and Thanos, Gamora fought to escape the Black Knights of the Universal Church of Truth and Magus's Death Squad. She was then assigned by Thanos to protect Adam Warlock, but she became suspicious of Thanos's plans, and was then attacked by Drax the Destroyer.

Eventually the Magus was defeated, but Thanos revealed himself as an even greater threat. Gamora aided Captain Mar-Vell, Drax, and the Avengers against Thanos. Gamora and Pip tried to prevent Thanos from destroying all life in the universe. Gamora attempted to slay Thanos, but he mortally wounded her, and destroyed Pip's mind. Adam Warlock found them, and Gamora warned Adam of Thanos's plans, and Adam absorbed their souls into his Soul Gem. When Adam Warlock died as well, his spirit was reunited with that of his friends in "Soulworld" within the Soul Gem.
