"I'm not your daughter. Everything I hate about myself, you taught me."
"And in doing so, made you the fiercest woman in the galaxy."
―Gamora and Thanos[src]

Gamora Zen Whoberi Ben Titan was a former Zehoberei assassin and a former member of the Guardians of the Galaxy. She became the adopted daughter of Thanos and adopted sister of Nebula after Thanos killed half of her race. Gamora served him for years before betraying him in an attempt to free herself from his ways. She was hired to steal the Orb, and after becoming involved in the Quest for the Orb, she befriended the other members of the Guardians of the Galaxy. After the Battle of Xandar, she left to work with them all. Having made a deal with the Sovereign to kill the Abilisk, Gamora was able to regain custody of Nebula with the intention of finally bringing her to justice in Xandar.

However, her mission to punish Nebula was delayed when Gamora and the Guardians came into contact with Ego, the long-lost father of Star-Lord. While Ego claimed he simply wanted to bond with his son, Gamora was suspicious and, alongside Nebula who had freed herself, discovered Ego's evil intentions to destroy and rebuild the universe. Upon this discovery, the Guardians teamed up to destroy the living planet, succeeding with the help of Mantis, who joined the group, but at the cost of Yondu Udonta sacrificing his life. After Udonta's death, Gamora finally confessed that she had romantic feelings for Star-Lord and started a relationship with him.

Four years later, Gamora and the Guardians intercepted a distress call sent by Asgardians; Thor warned them that Thanos had begun searching for the Infinity Stones himself. Realizing what Thanos intended to do with them, Gamora led her friends to Knowhere to procure the Aether, only for both it and Gamora to be captured by Thanos himself. Thanos took Gamora to Vormir, where he sacrificed her against her will in order to obtain the Soul Stone, a process that trapped Gamora's soul inside the Soulworld.

Biography[]

Raised by Thanos[]

Growing Up on Zen-Whoberi[]

"You're quite the fighter, Gamora. Come. Let me help you."
Thanos to Gamora[src]
Gamora&HerMotherHidingFromTheSlaughter

Gamora and her mother hide from Chitauri

When Gamora was very young, the interplanetary warlord Thanos killed half of her species, the Zehoberei. Although she and her mother attempted to hide, they were quickly found by Thanos' soldiers, the Chitauri, and taken out to the spotlight. Gamora fought off the soldier restraining her, an act that Thanos himself saw, which earned her the Titan's interest in her and his respect at her fierce nature. He took her aside and taught her his beliefs on balance by symbolizing it by balancing a knife on his finger.

Massacre of the Zehoberei

Gamora is adopted by Thanos

While asking her to do the same, Ebony Maw ordered the Chitauri to balance the population. When his soldiers began the massacre, Gamora turned and almost saw her people being massacred. However, Thanos turned her attention back onto the knife and complimented her when she finally balanced the dagger. While her parents were among those killed, Thanos spared and raised her as his own child.[1]

Deadliest Woman in the Galaxy[]

Nebula vs Gamora Comic

Gamora trains with Nebula

"I go by many names, Earthian, but I'm sure the one that most know me by is Gamora, the deadliest woman in the whole galaxy."
―Gamora[src]

As Gamora was taken in by Thanos and grew older, Thanos trained her in the arts of combat and assassination and would cybernetically alter her body, trying to transform her into the ultimate weapon.[5] Days after she and Nebula were taken in by Thanos, they trained together at the Sanctuary. Gamora attempted to teach Nebula how to roll, but Nebula expressed concern about what would happen if she got it wrong. Gamora assured Nebula that she would not. Nebula asked why Gamora was helping, given that Thanos wanted them to be enemies. However, Gamora assured Nebula that they would always be sisters first and worked on their roll.[6] Nebula and Gamora were also trained by Ronan the Accuser alongside Korath. Unlike the rest of Thanos' adopted children in the Black Order, Gamora and Nebula actually did consider each other sisters and both shared great enmity towards Thanos for destroying their childhoods.

Despite their closeness, Thanos had Nebula and Gamora regularly spar against each other with Gamora winning every match. In response, Thanos would 'upgrade' Nebula every time she lost against Gamora in order for her to "be her equal." The consistent and brutal "upgrades" caused Nebula to grow to resent her sister.[5] In one such fight, Thanos had Gamora and Nebula fight over a period of three days, only accessing a small ration of water and half an hour of sleep, without food. Three days became six, and Thanos offered a piece of Yaro Root to whoever won the day's fight. Nebula attacked Gamora and managed to defeat her. Nebula hesitated to deliver the killing blow, but Thanos ordered her to. Thanos stopped Nebula before she killed Gamora and congratulated Nebula for winning. However, he gave the whole Yaro Root to Gamora, who ate it happily while Thanos explained that Nebula was weak for hesitating to kill Gamora. While Nebula laid on the floor, cursing herself for her weakness, Gamora ate the Yaro Root without offering to share.[6]

Gamora (Infinity War Deleted Scene)

Gamora in her early years of serving Thanos

Over the years, Gamora became Thanos' favorite child, and he considered her the future heir to his throne, which only strengthened the growing wedge in her relationship with Nebula and in time, Gamora built up the reputation as the "deadliest woman in the galaxy" and became well known throughout the cosmos.[5]

Upon reaching adulthood, Gamora and her siblings were tasked with finding the Infinity Stones, with Thanos entrusting her to find the Soul Stone. She succeeded when she found a map leading to its location on Vormir but she burned it and lied to Thanos that she failed,[1] although Thanos was aware of the lie, but he remained silent and played a disappointed farce. Later, Gamora and Nebula sought the powerful item known as the Orb for Thanos under the command of Korath.

Gorfrad

Gamora dismembering Gorfrad

Gamora traveled to the Conjunction. After having arrived on the planet, Gamora went to the casino and engaged in a brawl with several other individuals who attempted to rob her. After having incapacitated them, Gamora was contacted by Taneleer Tivan who hired her to acquire the Orb which he sought to add to his collection and offered to pay her four billion units. Gamora ultimately accepted the job, and began to search for the Orb.[7]

On the planet Praxius IX, while following a false lead on the Orb, Nebula found herself ensnared by an impenetrable Laser Thorn Energy Net.[5] Under Thanos' orders, Gamora left Nebula behind, leaving her only a large knife with which to cut herself out of the netting. The experience drove a great wedge between the two sisters, and also strengthened Gamora's bitterness towards Thanos.[8]

Quest for the Orb[]

Family Conquests[]

Gamora (Back In 2014)

Gamora saves Nebula's life

"Ronan has located the Power Stone. I'm dispatching you to his ship."
"He won't like that."
Thanos and Gamora[src]

In 2014, Gamora participated in the cleansing of the population of Korbin along with Thanos and Nebula. However, Nebula was almost executed by a Korbinite soldier who held her at gunpoint, causing Gamora to rescue her at the last minute. As she offered a helping hand, Nebula sighed at Gamora's effort and claimed not to have needed help, only for Gamora to remind her that she always needed backup.

THPS31

Gamora and Nebula await Thanos' arrival

After the massacre ended, Gamora and Nebula returned to one of Thanos' Q-Ships to await further instructions. Gamora soon discovered from her adopted father that he had located the Power Stone on the desolate planet, Morag. When Nebula pointed out that Thanos had finally put his plan of gathering the Infinity Stones in effect, Gamora assured her that Thanos only knew the location of the Power Stone, and not the others.

THPS35

Gamora receiving instructions from Thanos

However, Nebula then lamented the possibility of Thanos obtaining all six Infinity Stones to Gamora. At that moment, Thanos appeared on the Q-Ship as he was cleaning his double-edged sword, before informing Gamora and Nebula that he was dispatching them to the Dark Aster, which belonged to his Kree ally, Ronan the Accuser, who promised to retrieve the Orb containing the Power Stone in exchange for the annihilation of Xandar, the capital of the Nova Empire, which Ronan desired revenge against for their actions against the Kree Empire.

THPS37

Gamora and Nebula listen to Thanos

Gamora pointed out that Ronan would not like that. Thanos, however, warned the two that Ronan's alternative was death if they refused to join him in his quest to obtain the Power Stone, noting that his obsession with the Kree-Nova War had clouded his judgments. Nebula then promised Thanos that she would not fail him in her mission while Gamora looked away at her sister's attempt to appease her father's demand.[9]

Betraying Ronan[]

"Have I ever?"
Ronan the Accuser and Gamora[src]

Thanos and Ronan's alliance was the final straw for Gamora, who was unwilling to assist the two in killing billions of innocent lives. Remembering her negotiation with Taneleer Tivan, Gamora formulated a plan to steal the Orb for herself so she could disappear from Thanos and Ronan forever. Following the Massacre of the Korbinites, Gamora and Nebula boarded the Dark Aster as Korath returned to the ship.

Gamora listens to Korath's failure

Gamora was later present with Ronan and Nebula when Korath updated his failure to retrieve the Orb from Morag to Ronan and revealed the identity of the thief who stole the Power Stone: Star-Lord, whom Korath surmised, planned to exchange the Orb on Xandar to the Broker. Ronan, remembering that Thanos promised to assist him in the annihilation of Xandar for retrieving the Orb for him, appointed Nebula to retrieve the Orb from Quill.

YouWillNotFail

Gamora is sent down to Xandar by Ronan

Knowing that the Orb falling into the hands of Ronan or Thanos would spell doom for the galaxy, Gamora offered Ronan to send her instead, reminding him that if Nebula failed, he would have subjected to the burden of reporting his failure to Thanos. Nebula, however, insisted that she was worthy of being Thanos' daughter as well. Ronan agreed that Gamora should execute the task, knowing that she never failed any mission she had been given by Thanos, although he threatened her with severe punishment if she failed.[2]

Gamora argues with Nebula

As she left, Gamora was attacked by Nebula, who accused her of intending to continue to stand above her despite Nebula having killed so many that their screams echoed through the entire Galaxy, which Gamora coldly retorted by saying the reason why was because Nebula took too long to kill them compared to Gamora's swift approach, and they fought until Gamora pinned Nebula to a wall and left.

Gamora kills Sakaarans on the ship

After having departed from the Dark Aster, Gamora boarded a Necrocraft with a team of Sakaarans. While they set traveled to Xandar, the leader of the Sakaarans expressed his profound gratitude for being allowed to work with one of Thanos and Ronan's pupils. Gamora agreed but instead hinted that there would be casualties on the ship. She then proceeded to murder every single Sakaaran guard with her on the ship.[10][6]

Meeting Star-Lord[]

Star-Lord and Gamora

Gamora finds Star-Lord to steal the Orb

"Fool! You should've learned."
"I don't learn. It's one of my issues."
―Gamora and Star-Lord[src]

Having arrived on Xandar, Gamora traced the Orb to Peter Quill who was an associate of the Ravagers. Pursuing him to Xandar, Gamora waited for his meeting with the Broker to finish outside his shop so she could steal the Orb by surprise. As he walked out furious, Gamora asked him what happened as she put on lipstick. He then proceeded to explain that the Broker reneged on their deal before introducing himself as Star-Lord to the Zehoberei. Remembering that Star-Lord was the thief who stole the Orb on Morag, Gamora decided to finally steal the Orb and she immediately attacked Quill.

Gamora viciously duels Star-Lord

As Gamora fled the scene, however, Star-Lord threw Energy Bolas to subdue her. As he caught up to her, Gamora already freed herself, and the two engaged in a brief hand-to-hand combat on the ground. As she gained the upper hand in the fight and prepared to kill Quill, bounty hunters Rocket Raccoon and Groot intervened, who also sought Quill who had a high bounty on his head from Yondu Udonta.

Rocket Groot Attack Gamora

Gamora is temporarily restrained by Groot

While Rocket Raccoon restrained Gamora, Groot, mistaking her for the target, extended his branches and put her in the bag, despite Rocket ordering Groot to abduct Quill. While the two argued, Star-Lord attempted to escape while Gamora threw Rocket into an open glass store and freed herself. Unwilling to let the Orb fall into the hands of a third party, Gamora threw one of her knives in Quill's direction, which caused the Orb to fall to the ground floor.

She then immediately attacked Groot with her sword before jumping to the first floor to escape with the Orb. To her surprise, however, Star-Lord caught up to her and the two engaged in another fight. During this fight, she called him a fool, telling him that he should have learned not to mess with her. Star-Lord agreed and managed to place one of his Jet Boot Attachments on her clothes which sent her flying backward.

Meanwhile, Rocket and Groot abducted Quill. To the raccoon's horror, Gamora appeared in front of him with her sword and aggressively pushed him aside before cutting off both Groot's arms. With the two bounty hunters defeated, she finally attempted to regain the Orb and opened the bag which contained a captured Quill. However, Star-Lord used his gun to knock Gamora out before the Nova Corps intervened and arrested the four for civil disruption.[2]

Imprisoned in the Kyln[]

―Gamora[src]

The four were then shipped off-world and sent to the Kyln for incarceration. As they made their way through the prison under armed guards, Peter Quill demanded to know what was so special about the Orb, but Gamora refused to answer. Rocket Raccoon then antagonized her by reminding her of her crimes across the galaxy. Gamora then witnessed Quill getting assaulted when he attempted to get his Walkman back from a guard.

Having stepped into the prison, every inmate immediately turned their attention to Gamora, taunting her with threats and throwing rubbish at her. Rocket explained it was due to many of the inmates have lost their families to Thanos and Ronan the Accuser. Despite the endless threats, Gamora remained calm, telling Quill that nothing she could experience here would compare to what she had experienced while working for Thanos.

The same night, a guard allowed Moloka Dar and a team of angry prisoners who wished to murder her into her cell, and they ambushed her while she slept and put a knife to her throat. She was then dragged out of her cell by the prisoners and was about to be killed when she found herself being saved by Drax the Destroyer, whose family had been murdered by Ronan. Instead, Drax explained that he wished to kill Gamora himself to briefly satisfy his hatred.

At the instance of hearing Drax claim that Gamora was a family to Ronan, Gamora proved to him that she was no longer affiliated to Ronan or Thanos as she immediately attacked Drax, Moloka Dar, and two other prisoners who were holding her at knifepoint. Holding the knives up to Moloka Dar and Drax, she angrily told him that she was not family with Ronan and suggested that she was his only hope at stopping Ronan's plans from coming to fruition.

However, Drax disarmed her and held the knife up to her neck, claiming that her words meant nothing to him. Seeing this, Star-Lord intervened and reminded Drax that Gamora wanted Ronan dead as much as she did and persuaded him to exact his revenge on Ronan instead of killing Gamora. While initially distrustful of each other, Gamora offered to split Tivan's payment with Quill, Rocket, and Groot if they assisted her in escaping from the prison.[2]

Escape from the Kyln[]

The next day, Rocket Raccoon came up with a plan to get them out of the prison, which involved stealing an inmate's false leg, a guard's security band, and a Quarnyx Battery. Groot accidentally started their escape early and Gamora focused her efforts on getting the guard's armband. She quickly found the guard who almost allowed Moloka Dar to murder her and ripped it from his arm as the two exchanged words with each other.

With the armband ready, Gamora rejoined the rest of the group in the prison's control terminal, she found that they had been joined by Drax the Destroyer, who wished to stay with her until they found Ronan the Accuser. At first, Gamora furiously inquired the others as to why Drax was with them, only to be dismissed. However, several Nova guards defending the prison attempted to shoot at the control terminal in hopes of eliminating the five.

However, the criminals completed their escape when Rocket turned off the anti-gravity in the prison and flew the prison terminal outside. As Gamora looked in surprise and shock at the success of Rocket's plan, they then fled the Kyln to the Milano. However, Quill insisted upon staying behind to collect his Walkman, which was stolen from him the day he arrived at the intergalactic prison. As a sign of trust, he left the Orb with Gamora and the other former criminals as they waited in his ship for him to retrieve his taken belongings.

The group waited for Quill while flying outside of the prison, however, Rocket insisted that they leave without him. Gamora refused when she realized that Quill had not in fact given her the Orb but kept it with him. Rocket continued to demand they leave before their ship was shot out of space by the Nova Corps, whom he surmised were alerted to the Kyln. However, Gamora insisted that they not leave without the Orb.

Gamora is asked about the Orb by Quill

Quill emerged a few minutes later, flying across space and onto the ship. He gave Gamora the real Orb before informing Drax that he had left to collect his Walkman, which resulted in Drax calling Quill an imbecile. As they headed to Knowhere to meet Gamora's buyer, On the Milano, Star-Lord interrogated Gamora about what was inside the Orb and why it was coveted by so many parties including Ronan the Accuser before he offered her his theory that it contained a powerful weapon. Although Gamora knew that it contained the Power Stone, she claimed not to know what it truly was as she was untrustworthy of him and the others.

Gamora discusses the Orb

As the group discussed what was to be done with the Orb, Drax the Destroyer suggested that if it was a weapon they should use it to kill Ronan. Gamora looked at him in shock and instructed him to put it down as the Orb's power had the capability to destroy all of them and even the Milano. A furious Drax then insisted that it would only destroy her, calling her a "murderess," which thus led to a fierce argument between her and Drax.

Quill calmed the situation down insisting that no one must kill anyone on board his ship. Gamora refused to give Quill any more information about where they were going or who her buyer was, leading to Quill telling her that she should begin trusting him more, Gamora told Quill she would never work with someone like him and then mocked him by telling him that his ship was filthy.[2]

Trouble on Knowhere[]

After they arrive on Knowhere, a remote criminal outpost in space built in the giant severed head of a Celestial, Gamora explains to the Guardians that Knowhere was a mining colony owned by the Tivan Group, which sent workers to mine the organic matter in the Celestial's skull. The colony also became a hub for outlaws.

The group decided to relax while waiting to meet the Collector. Gamora and Peter Quill shared a brief moment while she cleaned her sword where Quill explained his need to get his Walkman back due to it being a gift from his mother. Gamora then explained to Quill that she was no longer loyal to Ronan or Thanos because he killed her parents and turned her into an assassin. Quill then let Gamora listen to the music and tried to seduce her, which ended with Gamora harshly rejecting Quill, as she was aware of his reputation.

Their conversation was interrupted when a fight broke out between the drunk Rocket Raccoon, Groot, and Drax the Destroyer after the latter called Rocket vermin and Rocket mocked Drax's past. Quill and Gamora were able to break up the fight and convinced Rocket to put down his weapon and wait until they had collected their money from the Collector. Drax, however, refused and stormed off, due to being furious that he had still been unable to kill Ronan the Accuser, while Gamora let him go as she felt that they did not need his help.[2]

Some time later, Carina finally chooses to summon the Guardians of the Galaxy to the Collector to negotiate the payment. While Drax stayed back, the Guardians followed the Collector's servant as she toured them through his museum, which contained various types of species, fauna, and mysterious objects from all over the galaxy. She then, at last, introduced the four to the Collector, who greeted Gamora with a kiss to the hand, noting how wonderful it was to finally meet her in person. Insistent upon the negotiation, Gamora suggested that they skip the formalities.

However, Tivan became distracted by Groot as he had never seen a member of Groot's species before and intended to add him to his collection. This irked Rocket Raccoon who pulled out his weapon at the instance of hearing Tivan calling him Groot's pet. Gamora then reminded Tivan that they had been halfway across the universe searching for the Orb and suggested that they continue what they had come to discuss. Star-Lord then pulled the Orb from his jacket pocket and attempted to hand it to the Collector, only to briefly drop it on the floor.

Tivan showed great enthusiasm as he began to open the Orb, explaining that the Orb was a containment device that held the Power Stone. Tivan showed the incredible power of the Infinity Stones which had been used by Eson the Searcher thousands of years before to destroy entire planets, as well as the Power Stone Group, who attempted to harness its power, only for the Infinity Stone to destroy them. As Tivan ended the story, the Power Stone was extracted from the Orb to reveal its true appearance.

Rocket Raccoon, who expressed boredom at Tivan's lecture of the Power Stone's history, demanded the four be paid so they could leave Knowhere. Before the group could accept their payment, the Collector observed Carina attempted to take the Stone and use its power to free herself from bondage. As she claimed that she was no longer Tivan's slave, however, she touched the stone, which massive explosion that killed herself and destroyed much of Tivan's collection.

Barely escaping with their lives, Gamora hastily resealed the stone into the Orb and promptly left the destroyed museum along with Star-Lord, Rocket Raccoon, and Groot. As she shamed herself for believing that Tivan could contain the Power Stone in his vault, an appalled Rocket asked what she was doing with it, after having realized the true destructive natures of the Power Stone, and berated Quill for hiding it in his belongings.

Gamora and Star-Lord argue about the Orb

Surmising that Ronan would obliterate the Nova Corps if he discovered what was inside the Orb, Gamora decided to deliver the Orb to the Nova Corps where it would be safest. Rocket Raccoon was horrified when he saw that they were keeping it and suggested that they give it to Ronan the Accuser as a peace offering, Star-Lord then suggested that they give it to a friend of his who would offer a great payment for it. Gamora was furious at the suggestion and attempted to leave with the Orb.[2]

Before Gamora could escape, Ronan the Accuser, Nebula, and a platoon of Sakaaran soldiers suddenly arrived, having been summoned to Knowhere by Drax the Destroyer who intended to kill him in an act of revenge for murdering his family on Kylos. However, at the same time, the Ravagers led by Yondu Udonta also arrived at the space colony, having been given the location of the Collector from the Broker. Udonta located Star-Lord and attempted to capture him for his betrayal. As she watched in horror as Ronan confronted Drax, Gamora decided to escape with the Orb and bestow it to the Nova Corps for safekeeping.

Despite that Gamora managed to shoot down several Necrocraft ships with the help of Rocket Raccoon and Star-Lord, she was ultimately forced to fly her mining pod into deep space where it malfunctioned, and she became trapped. As she approached deep space, Nebula claimed that Gamora was a disappointment, stating that out of all of their siblings in the Black Order, she hated her least. Gamora tried to reason with her sister, insisting that if Ronan got his hands on the Orb, he would kill everyone in the universe.

Nebula refused to listen to her sister's pleas, asserting that she would not have to witness Ronan's malevolent use of the Power Stone against the universe. Nebula sentenced Gamora to death and proceeded to destroy Gamora's ship, resulting in her being blown into deep space. As Gamora started to suffocate, Nebula left her for dead and stole the Orb, which was stagnating in space, and traveled back to Knowhere to pick up Ronan.

While he was bragging about his heroic deeds, Gamora asked where the Orb was only to discover that Nebula stole it. Before she could react, the two were confronted by Kraglin Obfonteri and several Ravagers who held them at gunpoint and took them into custody.[2]

As they were saved by the Yondu Ravager Clan, Yondu Udonta immediately began beating up Peter Quill in revenge for him betraying the Ravagers. Eventually, Gamora managed to convince Udonta of the danger the Orb posed in Ronan's hands. In the end, he agreed to help them in retaking the Orb from Ronan, who was now making his way to Xandar to destroy it.

Quill pitched his idea of a plan, but the group was not convinced, as it would likely result in their deaths. In the end, however, Gamora told Quill she would be happy to die with her friends and the rest of the group also agreed, having been around her enemies most of her life. Quill and Gamora explained the details of the plan to Udonta and his clan, with Gamora explaining how they would engage his army of Sakaarans and use the distraction to board the ship where her knowledge of the layout would help them find and kill Ronan. They also made it clear how deadly the Power Stone was and how Ronan must not be allowed to touch the planet's surface as it would result in its destruction. The Ravagers were handing containment Orbs to use to steal the stone back.[2]

While Yondu Udonta and the Ravagers provided a distraction for Nebula, the Guardians of the Galaxy started to dive underneath the Dark Aster. During the battle, they became overrun with the Sakaarans' ships and seemed overpowered until the Nova Corps arrived, led by Garthan Saal and assisted them in the battle.

As the Milano crashed through the ship, Quill was able to shoot down a large unit of Sakaarans guarding the ship before they prepared to carry on. As they made their way through the ship, it was almost too dark for them to see, so Groot demonstrated how he could create light spores to light their way. As they walked, Drax expressed his gratitude to be welcomed back into their group.

As Gamora attempted to reason with Nebula, however, she instead attacked her with her electroshock batons.

After pushing Nebula away, Gamora rushed to the ship generator, only for Nebula to briefly electrocute her. With no other choice, Gamora was forced to engage Nebula. The two sisters fought each other, with Gamora defending herself with her Godslayer and Nebula with her electroshock batons, while the Battle of Xandar raged on. Ultimately, Ronan the Accuser used the Power Stone to destroy the Nova Corps' blockade around the Dark Aster.

Nebula managed to hold on as her cybernetic arm became impaled on the piece of debris and hung thousands of feet above Xandar, Gamora attempted to reason with her sister by telling her that Ronan the Accuser was crazy and they could still stop him. Nebula refused to listen, citing that they were both crazy, and instead cut off her own arm and fell from the ship, landing on M-Ship, throwing the pilot out, and flying it to safety.[2]

With Nebula having been defeated, Gamora then disabled the shield generator of the Dark Aster as planned, allowing the rest of the group to enter the control room, with the three having killed Korath. She then joined her friends in confronting Ronan. As she faced her former ally, Ronan glanced at them as Star-Lord prepared to use the Hadron Enforcer to kill him. As he shot Ronan through the chest, the four of them waited for a second to make sure that Ronan was dead.

To Gamora's horror, however, Ronan's power was too great, having harnessed the Power Stone from earlier, and he survived. Ronan then used his Universal Weapon to knock the group back and easily subdued them. Gamora watched as Drax attempted to kill Ronan once again, only for him to effortlessly strangle the Kylosian, as the Kree reversed his statement earlier from the Skirmish on Knowhere to Drax, and affirmed that he indeed remembered killing his family, describing their screams as pitiful.

Ronan prepared to finally unleash his revenge and destroy Xandar while Gamora and the rest of the group seemed powerless to stop him. Much to everyone's surprise, Peter Quill decided to start dancing and singing, distracting Ronan who was confused by the strange display.

Using this momentary distraction, Rocket Raccoon was able to repair the Hadron Enforcer and Drax the Destroyer used it to destroy Ronan's Universal Weapon, exposing the Power Stone within. Quill grabbed the stone but was almost killed by its power while a sinister Ronan watched with a grin. Watching as Quill's body started to rip apart due to the effects of possessing the Infinity Stone, Gamora asked him to hold her hand, so she could also harness it. As he hallucinated his dying mother, Quill took her hand, and she screamed in agony and pain as the Power Stone consumed her.

Ultimately, Drax the Destroyer and Rocket Raccoon became exposed to the Power Stone after having exchanged physical contact with Star-Lord. However, the four of them survived as all of them combined were strong enough to absorb and contain its power. As Ronan demanded how they were able to sustain its power given that they were mortal, Quill responded that they were the Guardians of the Galaxy before directing the Power Stone at Ronan, decimating him, before Gamora contained the stone in the Orb.

With Xandar now saved and the Orb protected once again, Yondu Udonta arrived with his clan and demanded that Quill give him the Orb as he had promised. Despite Gamora's pleads against it, Quill gave in and handed over the Orb. However, once the Ravagers had left the planet, Quill revealed to Gamora that he had switched them and still had the Infinity Stone. Gamora spoke to Quill and he explained how Udonta was the only family he had ever had, but she told him that that was no longer true.[2]

Gamora questioned Drax as to why he was not wearing one of Rocket Raccoon's Aero-Rigs, which he told her it made his nipples hurt, causing Rocket to laugh at his statement. As the Abilisk approached them, Gamora got out a rifle, which Star-Lord questioned as her thing was swords. She responded that how unlikely it would be for her to fight and kill the creature with only her Godslayer. As they fought the Abilisk, Gamora told Groot, who was dancing, to move from danger and responded by waving.

Drax then informed Gamora that the Abilisk must be cut on the inside so it could be fully destroyed. Gamora tried to warn him not to do so, but he ignored her warnings and jumped in its mouth as the Abilisk swallowed him. Star-Lord looked in horror as Drax was seemingly devoured by the creature, and then asked her what he was thinking. Gamora insisted Quill that she warned Drax, and he refused to listen to her warning.

The Guardians appeared before the priestess Ayesha, who expressed her gratitude in the Guardians stopping the Abilisk. As Ayesha explained how the Sovereign people were created, Star-Lord attempted to flirt with the High Priestess by attempting to inform her how humans reproduced.

As they attempted to escape, Quill and Rocket began to argue which Gamora had to break up.

That night, the Guardians of the Galaxy set up a campfire, and Ego proceeded to explain to them that he had been searching for Quill ever since Yondu Udonta and the Ravagers failed to uphold their end of the bargain having refused to turn him over to Ego. As Drax and Star-Lord disagreed on the notion of Udonta being his father, Gamora asked how Ego found them, to which he responded that he had heard rumors and stories designating Star-Lord as a hero for his involvement in saving Xandar from Ronan the Accuser. Ego then offered the Guardians of the Galaxy a chance to explore his planet, and from there he would explain Quill's true heritage.

As a result of his misdeeds, he had been cursed to be the guardian of the Soul Stone, guiding others who sought it.

Gamora (Vormir Sacrifice)

Gamora is told that she will be the sacrifice

As they reached the cliff, Red Skull led them to the edge of the mountain, claiming that what Thanos sought laid in front of him. As Gamora looked down, she asked what he was talking about. The Red Skull claimed that Thanos needed the sacrifice of a loved one to be given the Soul Stone as it carried a special place amongst the Infinity Stones. Thanos then learned that he needed to throw that person he loved off the cliff to their death.

Gamora (Ready to be Sacrifice)

Gamora is forced off the cliff by Thanos

Gamora, upon hearing this, unleashed her bitter resentment for Thanos' seeming lack of love for anyone by smiling, laughing and saying how she had dreamed that Thanos would be punished for all he had done, and that the moment was finally here as the universe found Thanos unworthy because he loved no one but himself. Thanos turned around and revealed tears, which she believed was due to his failure, and continued to confidently taunt him.

Sacrifice of Gamora

Gamora is sacrificed for the Soul Stone

However, the truth was revealed that Thanos was crying because he would have to sacrifice Gamora as he truly loved her as his daughter. Gamora's taunting ceased and she bitterly remarked that their relationship was not love, but Thanos told her he could not ignore his destiny again, even for her. Gamora still quickly attempted suicide to prevent Thanos from obtaining the stone, but Thanos easily turned her dagger to bubbles and tearfully apologized and, while still in tears, dragged her over to the cliff and threw her to her death. Thanos then awakened with the Soul Stone in his hand.[1]

Legacy[]

Star-Lord's Rage[]

"Her dad threw her off a magic cliff and she died, and then I lost my temper and nearly destroyed half the universe."
Star-Lord to Ura[src]

Thanos arrived on Titan to retrieve the Timeand Mind Stones from the Black Order. Instead, he was confronted by the combined forces of Iron Man, Doctor Strange, Spider-Man, Star-Lord, Nebula - who escaped from the Sanctuary II -, Drax the Destroyer, and Mantis. During his fight with the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy, Strange restricted the gauntlet while Iron Man, Spider-Man and Drax the Destroyer, restrained Thanos' arms and legs, allowing Mantis to inflict sleep upon him using her powers.

Star-Lord then mocked Thanos and demanded the location of Gamora, visibly causing him to become crestfallen. Mantis then revealed that Thanos was mourning, which led Nebula to understand in horror and sadness that he had sacrificed her for the Soul Stone. Star-Lord then angrily questioned Thanos to tell her that Nebula was lying and Thanos emotionally said he had to. In the end, Thanos overcame and defeated them, forcing Strange to hand the Time Stone to him.[1]

Soulworld[]

Gamora's soul meets Thanos in Soulworld

"What did it cost?"
"Everything."
―Gamora and Thanos[src]

After Thanos snapped his fingers with the Infinity Gauntlet during the Battle of Wakanda, he was transported to the Soulworld inside the Soul Stone. There, Gamora's soul met Thanos in her child form and calmly asked if he had done it and the resigned Thanos told her he had achieved his goal. Gamora asked what it had cost and Thanos sadly smiled and said it cost him everything, referring to how she was the only thing he loved.

Apparently accepting defeat, Gamora sadly smiled before Thanos returned to reality as the Snap started, causing half of the life in the universe to fade away into nothingness.[1] However, three weeks after the ending of the Infinity War and before his death at the blade of Thor's Stormbreaker, Thanos used the Infinity Stones to destroy themselves, obliterating the Soulworld within the Soul Stone.[9]

Younger Variant[]

"That wasn't me. That was some alternate future version of me."
Gamora to Star-Lord[src]

In 2023, the Avengers initiated the Time Heist to collect the Infinity Stones out of alternate past timelines to resurrect the victims of Thanos' Snap. After Nebula was sent to an from alternate 2014 to steal the Orb from Morag, this attracted the attention of the Gamora, Thanos and Nebula that lived in this timeline. With the 2014 Nebula impersonating the 2023 Nebula, Gamora joined her father and his armies as they boarded the Sanctuary II and were brought into the prime timeline through the Quantum Realm. Gamora chose to turn on her father and joined the armies opposing Thanos during the Battle of Earth.[9] Now stranded in the prime timeline and having never joined the Guardians of the Galaxy, this Gamora Variant went on a different path from the prime Gamora and joined the Ravagers.

The loss of Gamora left Star-Lord to continuously grieve their past relationship and lapse into alcoholism. This continued until 2026 when the Gamora Variant was hired by Nebula, to assist the Guardians in their mission to save the life of Rocket Raccoon, and she temporarily joined their team in the battle against High Evolutionary, during which Quill would make repeated attempts to reconnect with her.

Ultimately, even as she once again became friends with the Guardians, the events surrounding Rocket's near-death experience led Quill to finally accept that the Gamora he loved was permanently gone and that the Variant could not replace her. The two of them briefly reconciled before going their separate ways once again, and Gamora returned to the Ravagers.[14]

Personality[]

"I have spent most of my life surrounded by my enemies. I will be grateful to die among my friends."
―Gamora[src]

Gamora, throughout most of her life, has been molded into a living weapon, and the only family that she knew and raised her are the people she considered enemies. Because of her assassin background, Gamora can be stoic, distant, and merciless to her foes or targets. Her reputation as the most deadly woman in the galaxy precedes her, as Rocket Raccoon states "anyone who is anyone knows who [Gamora] is". Whilst she was an equal level of criminal to the rest of her teammates when they first met, Gamora valued honor greatly and held Star-Lord with disdain for being a dishonorable thief alone. However, she was willing to work with the Guardians of the Galaxy to escape the Kyln and sell the Orb though she was monumentally irritated by them, Drax in particular.

During combat, she can be aggressive and ruthless due to her tendency for war cries and her willingness to kill without restraint. However, she will often use strategy to avoid murder when possible such as flirting with Quill so to steal the Orb from him without fatal means, only resorting to killing when it became clear that Quill wasn't going to surrender without a fight or the fact that he might sell it to someone dangerous like the Broker or Ronan if he managed to escape. Within the Kyln, Gamora was almost killed by Drax and Moloka Dar, but she only restrained them instead of killing them and non-lethally incapacitates the guards when they were trying to escape. When arguing with Nebula regarding who was the better assassin, Gamora told her that the difference between them was that she took too long murdering her victims, showing that she lacks the sadistic desire for a painful death Nebula had.

Her brutal training by Thanos could have turned her into someone like her sister, Nebula but by comparison, Gamora is extremely caring. When she discovered the Orb's destructive power, she didn't hesitate to surrender it to the Nova Corps despite the threat of arrest and angrily chastising Quill for attempting to sell it. Despite her hatred for everyone connected towards Thanos as well as her rivalry towards her sister and her attempts to kill her earlier, Gamora consoles her and genuinely cares for her. Throughout all their altercations, Gamora would always try to reason with Nebula and held back so as not to kill her. However, during childhood, she was too self-focused on her own survival that she didn't seem to care about what happened to Nebula when Thanos would torture her for losing against Gamora in combat, something which Gamora didn't even realize until adulthood and shows remorse for this, but defends this by saying that she was a child like Nebula and scared for her own life. Her love for Nebula was shown when she quickly gave in and told Thanos the Soul Stone is on Vormir when she saw Nebula tortured.

Gamora possesses a mixture of love and hatred for Thanos for ruining her childhood and massacring half of her people but for also loving her as a daughter and training her to become a warrior. For years, Gamora was loyal to Thanos but she never completely committed to his cause, which caused her to burn the map to the Soul Stone upon finding it even before she fully defected from him when she met her fellow Guardians. She even went as far as to lie that Thanos killed her parents in front of her while it was not the case and Thanos actually gently kept her from seeing the massacre of her people. When they reunited, despite Thanos' kind attempts to reconcile with her, Gamora bitterly rejected everything and did not hesitate to express her profound hatred for him. However, despite all of this, Gamora does still love Thanos as a father to some degree but could not bring herself to admit it and created the lie to justify her hatred for Thanos, as she still cried when she seemingly killed him and Thanos himself said that he knew she still cared for him deep down. While she was quick to attempt suicide to prevent Thanos from obtaining the Soul Stone, Gamora was genuinely shocked and seemed almost happy after learning that Thanos genuinely loved her as his daughter and the fact she had to die for him to complete his mission deeply shocked and devastated him for a brief moment before she tried to kill herself. Thanos also said that she once had the same will as he has as she fought alongside him, implying that she at first did have some dedication to Thanos' cause until she saw him for what he was and turned against him. It could also be possible that she initially believed in his goal to balance the universe by killing half its population to be the right thing until she began to disagree with it.

Unlike the other Guardians, Gamora lacks the comical quirks and deep-seated personality issues giving her a more serious and deadly personality. However, like Drax, Gamora is ignorant of Quill's Earth lingo and pop references. She also doesn't understand figures of speech because she believed that "having a stick up your butt" which was another way of saying one was uptight was literal and considered it cruel. During a few months with the Guardians, Gamora's hardened personality has begun to vanish. She took the time during a fight with the Abilisk to wave at Groot, becoming an almost mother-figure to him and dancing with Quill on Ego's planet despite previously claiming not to dance. Gamora later consoled him about Yondu Udonta's death and hinted at having romantic feelings for him. However, she still has an aggressive edge, threatening to break the jaw of Mantis if she touched her (presumably because she didn't want Drax or anyone to know about her attraction to Quill). She eventually confessed that she loved him more than anything when she asked him to kill her after Thanos had grabbed her.

Gamora's selflessness was shown by the fact that she was willing to let Star-Lord kill her to prevent Thanos from learning the location of the Soul Stone and later quickly and desperately attempted suicide to prevent Thanos from acquiring the Stone.

After being sacrificed by Thanos, Gamora's soul trapped in the Soulworld showed a more defeated side, seemingly being the only hero who humbly accepted Thanos' victory, as when Thanos came to her, she bore no ill will towards him and calmly asked if he did it. She even showed a softer side when he solemnly replied that achieving his goal needed him to sacrifice her, sadly smiling as if to comfort Thanos.

Powers and Abilities[]

Powers[]

"Gamora. Surgically modified and trained as a living weapon."
Rhomann Dey[src]
  • Zehoberei Physiology/Bionic Enhancement: As a Zehoberei, Gamora naturally possesses physical capabilities beyond any human being, which were further augmented by Thanos' use of bionic and cybernetic enhancements to improve her skills as an assassin.
    • Superhuman Strength:
      GotGV2 HD Stills 24

      Gamora carries the massive M-Ship cannon

      Due to her Zehoberei heritage and bionic enhancements, Gamora was stronger than humans and many other species, allowing her to overpower a majority of her opponents in combat. She possessed a cybernetic skeleton and had demonstrated her strength by being able to effortlessly lift Mantis by her neck with one hand and pin her to a wall, break Groot's vine binding with nothing but her strength, throw a Korbinite soldier much larger than herself at a considerable distance while decimating Korbin, knocking out several Kyln guards with one strike, ripping off a guard's arm with her leg, as well as holding up the discarded cannon of a crashed M-Ship piloted by Nebula, which was far larger than her, before using it to fire on the ship. During the battle on Xandar, Gamora was able to kick Nebula with enough force to launch her sister out of the Dark Aster. While the Milano was crash landing, Gamora was able to hold the fixture tied to Drax the Destroyer for a while without getting pulled out of the cabin even with Drax destroying several trees. However, Gamora was powerless against Thanos, as he effortlessly restrained her and threw her off of a cliff on Vormir with a single hand even with Gamora struggling to free herself with both hands.
    • Enhanced Durability: Gamora's bionic upgrades and the advanced physiology of her species allow her to be more resistant to physical harm. Gamora was able to survive, or at least briefly endure, various afflictions that would prove fatal to a normal human being, such as severe electrocution, deep space exposure, or blunt force trauma. While fighting her sister, Gamora withstood falling off a cliff and survived an exploding spaceship, sending her flying. During the Battle on Ego's Planet, Gamora effortlessly landed on her feet completely unharmed after falling from the Laser Drill and later was slammed into a wall by a rising rock pillar at a great speed. However, she did not survive being thrown off a large cliff on Vormir by Thanos, with Gamora losing a lot of blood upon impact with the ground.
    • Superhuman Agility:
      GotGV2 Teaser Trailer Abilist back

      Gamora leaping towards Abilisk

      As a bionically-enhanced Zehoberei, Gamora possessed a high level of agility that gives her an advantage over her opponents, such as when she was able to leap at a tremendous height and distance while helping the other Guardians escape from the Kyln. Gamora wears specially designed shoes with springy heels which allow her to jump higher than she normally could,[15] and when combined with her agility, allowed her to leap a great height when attempting to slaughter the Abilisk. Gamora was later able to leap a considerable distance while escaping from Ego's planet alongside Nebula.
    • Enhanced Stamina: Gamora's two livers allowed her to metabolize and filter toxins faster than any human and her respiratory implants allow her to intake oxygen at greater efficiency than any human.
    • Enhanced Reflexes: Gamora's natural reflexes had been augmented by the use of nanomachines throughout her bloodstream, increasing her reaction time in combat situations.[15]
    • Regenerative Healing Factor: Bio-augmentations such as nanomachines within her bloodstream granted Gamora the power to regenerate quickly from most injuries or infections,[15] allowing her to easily get back into fighting shape after being exposed to deep-space without any protection.

Abilities[]

"As a child, my father would have Gamora and me battle one another in training. Every time my sister prevailed... my father would replace a piece of me with machinery... claiming he wanted me to be her equal. But she won... again and again, and again, never once refraining."
Nebula to Kraglin Obfonteri[src]
  • Master Combatant:
    GotGGamoraFightsNebulaBattleofXandar

    Gamora fighting against Nebula

    Gamora was an extremely skilled and formidable hand-to-hand combatant, having trained extensively as an assassin under Thanos ever since she was a child as well as years of fighting experience when carrying out Thanos' missions, making her one of the most dangerous and best fighters in the universe. Gamora's skills were so advanced that even Thanos himself held her at such high regard that he openly considered her the finest of his children and the fiercest woman in the Galaxy, with her being known to having constantly beat Nebula, a very proficient fighter in her own right, in their spars. Hence, she quickly gained and maintained the upper hand over Star-Lord, easily broke out from Groot and Rocket's attempts to restrain her, and while holding back, as she was only attempting to reason with Nebula rather than kill her, easily held her own against and eventually defeated Nebula even after Nebula disarmed her, an expert combatant in her own right, in their spars, only losing in their latest altercation due to being weakened and still holding her own before being pinned down.
  • Sword Mastery:
    GamoraStabsGroot

    Gamora amputates and stabs Groot

    Gamora was extremely skilled at using her sword in combat, with it being her primary method of combat. She was able to easily amputate and overpower Groot, battle against Nebula wielding her batons during the Battle of Xandar, disarming her of one of her weapons, and cut down the Abilisk. While on a mission in Conjunction's Casino, Gamora was able to use dual blades to swiftly cut several enemies who attempted to attack her.
  • Expert Marksman: Although Gamora was known to prefer using melee combat, especially swords, much more often, her training under Thanos nevertheless allowed her to acquire a level of proficiency in using firearms. She displayed this skill when she effectively wielded a rifle while battling the Abilisk, and later turned a ship's turret into a hand-held weapon and accurately shot and swiftly destroyed the M-Ship Nebula attacked her on. She is also an excellent knife-thrower, able to throw a knife with such accuracy from a great distance that she was able to avoid amputating Quill's arm while still forcing him to drop the Orb.
"Anyone who's anyone knows who you are."
Rocket Raccoon[src]
  • Master Assassin: Gamora was an extremely skilled assassin, being so great that she was known for never having failed her missions while under Thanos' tutelage and even earning such fearful reputation that she was considered the "deadliest woman in the galaxy" due to her work as an assassin. Nebula, herself an extensively trained assassin who was skilled enough to have come close to assassinating Thanos, stated that Gamora is the better assassin.
  • Pilot: Gamora was a capable pilot, as shown when in an attempt to escape from Nebula and a group of Sakaarans on Knowhere, Gamora was able to single-handedly command and fly a mining pod with relative ease. She managed to avoid being decisively shot down until she was eventually forced to escape to space, which shut down her pod and allowed Nebula to shoot her down.
  • Multilingualism: Gamora was fluent in her native language, as well as English, and she can also understand Groot after spending four years with Groot.

A past version of Godslayer is still in use by a version of Gamora from 2014.
  • Gamora's Switchblade: Thanos gave her a switchblade during their first encounter on Zen-Whoberi. Gamora later used it in her attempted assassination of Thanos on Knowhere.

  • Dark Aster: Gamora and Nebula were sent to work for Ronan the Accuser's ship, the Dark Aster. She used her position to get sent by Ronan to retrieve the Orb so that she could sell it to the Collector.

As the ship crashed, Groot covered the Guardians and protected them from dying.
  • Milano: Gamora and the rest of the Guardians of the Galaxy escaped the Kyln in Peter Quill's ship, which they took to Knowhere in order to sell the Orb to the Collector. She and the Guardians then crashed the ship into the Dark Aster to fight Ronan the Accuser. The Nova Corps repaired it, and the team began operating out of the Milano. They were chased by the Sovereign in the Milano, leading to it crashing onto Berhert.
  • Mining Pods: Gamora boarded a mining pod on Knowhere to flee Ronan the Accuser's forces. She attempted to get into open space, but her pod broken down and was destroyed by Nebula.
  • Eclector: Gamora was taken onto ship by the Ravagers, preventing her from suffocating in space. The Ravagers wanted to attack Gamora and Peter Quill, but they came to an agreement against Ronan the Accuser. Gamora met with the rest of the Guardians of the Galaxy and made a plan to stop Ronan.
    • Quadrant: While Ego's planet was about to explode, Gamora and Nebula fled onto a quadrant of the Eclector. Gamora tried to insist that they wait for Peter Quill and Yondu Udonta, but Rocket Raccoon rendered her unconscious. Gamora and the Guardians held a funeral for Udonta in the quadrant and watched as the other Ravagers gave Udonta a Ravagers' funeral. Gamora then said goodbye to Nebula as she went to find Thanos.
  • Ego's Ship: Gamora was brought on Ego's ship to his planet.
