"The entire time I knew him he only ever had one goal to wipe half the universe if he gets all the infinity stones he can do it with the snap of this fingers just like that."

Gamora was a former assassin and a member of the Guardians of the Galaxy. She's one of the main characters of the Marvel Comics franchise. She became the adopted daughter of Thanos after he killed half of her race. She served him for years before betraying him in an attempt to free herself from his ways. She is also a supporting character of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Why She Rocks

  1. Whilst she was an equal level of criminal to the rest of her teammates when they first met, Gamora valued honor greatly.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Her design is really pretty.
  5. Her brutal training by Thanos could have turned her into someone like her sister, Nebula but by comparison Gamora is extremely caring. 
  6. 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.
  7. Despite her hatred to everyone connected towards Thanos as well as her rivalry towards her sister and her attempts to kill her earlier, Gamora consoles to her and genuinely cares for her.
  8. Throughout of all their altercations, Gamora would always try to reason with Nebula and held back so as not to kill her.
  9. Gamora hates Thanos for ruining her childhood and massacring half of her people. 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 it. When they reunite, despite Thanos's kind attempts to reconcile with her, Gamora bitterly rejected everything and did not hesitate to express her profound hatred for him. 
  10. Her heartwarming relationship with Peter Quill, aka, Star-Lord.

Bad Qualities

  1. During combat, she can be aggressive and ruthless due to her tendency for war cries and her willingness to kill without restraint. 
  2. However, during childhood, she was too self-focused with 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. 
  3. Her death scene can really get on your nerves, in the fact that she doesn’t know about herself and the guardians when brought back to life in the time machine.


  • In the comics, Gamora possesses different physical characteristics such as green hair and yellow patch-like tattoos over her eyes, and she was eventually entrusted to protect the Time Gem.
  • Despite their animosity toward each other, Gamora cares for Nebula. The two have a relationship similar to that of Thor and Loki.
  • Amanda Seyfried turned down the role of Gamora because she doesn't want to endure on make-up and that she thought the film would flop.
