Gorr the God Butcher Origin and his real Back story in Comics
Gorr made his first appearance in Marvel Comics In January 2015 in the Comic Thor: God of Thunder Volume 1. The Gorr character is created by Jason Aaron and Esad Ribic. Gorr is from a Grim planet but the exact name of the planet is not mentioned in the comic and he belongs to a Nomadic tribe and the planet where Gorr lives on, doesn’t have many resources for food. Also, they are always natural calamities on that planet.
The people on the planet struggle so hard to get food and other human resources. So to survive, people move from one place to another place so they got their names as Nomadic. And in addition to all of these the planet also had so many monsters which kill the Tribe people. Once one of those monsters attacked Gorr in his childhood and his mother saves him by sacrificing herself. At a very young age, Gorr lost his parents and became an orphan.
But the Gorr tribe ( Nomadic Tribe ) strongly believes in the existence of gods and worships them. The people pray to the gods to give them food and make the planet more Habitable to leave. Gorr was also one of them and strongly believes in gods but no God ever helped them. And they continue to leave in that harsh conditions. After somehow growing up on the planet for so many years Gorr marries Arra one of his tribe members.
Eventually, Gorr had Kids but unfortunately. The kids born to Arra continue to die because of the harsh situations on the planet and also because of the lack of food. In many of his children, only one child lives named Agar and only he can somewhat survive on that planet because of lack of resources Gorr and others struggle so hard for food.
But all Gorr family members still believe in God and worship them. But one day pregnant Arra dies because of earthquakes on the planet. Then Gorr buries her wife Arra in a nearby place and takes her son and moves to another place with their tribe in search of food. But in the way because of lack of food his son Agar dies due to hunger in Gorr’s hands.
Seeing his son’s death in his own hands make Gorr’s heart break into pieces. From that moment Gorr loses hope in the Gods. And he tells other tribe members to stop believing in god. But the other tribe members beat him with rocks and ban him from the Tribe because the other tribe members think Gorr got madness and continued to believe in gods and worship them.
But because Gorr doesn’t believe in gods they banish him from the Tribe. After all that beating from the tribe members, Gorr barely survives and walks slowly in search of food at that point onwards the complete Gorr story changes he gets powers and turns into Gorr the God Butcher. In the movie, we didn’t get to see any of this story. We only got to see the death of Gorr’s daughter and nothing more but he had one of the saddest backstories in Marvel Universe.
How Actually did Gorr the God Butcher get his Powers in Comics?
After Gorr gets banned from his Tribe he travels with his wounds in search of food. Then he reaches a place where in front of Gorr, two gods fell from the sky fighting with each other. The two gods are very badly injured and they get stabbed by each other. One of them is God Knull he is the god of Symbiotes and he is the creator of Venom. But the God Knull is dead because of the fighting but the other god in Gold Armor is still alive and asks Gorr for help.
After that Gorr expresses his sadness and anger towards God. He speaks like this ” Help you? Where are you? Where are you? When my children were starving? When does my wife ask you for your help? When the monster kills my mother? Where were you? ” In the meantime when God Knul is Dead and One of the Symbiotes A.K.A All-Black Necrosword reaches Gorr and combines with him. And with the Necrosword, Gorr kills the god in Gold Armor who was barely alive and becomes Gorr the God Butcher.
Just like venom combines with its users and gives the user powers. All-Black Necrosword gives Gorr, God Knull powers because of the new powers and the hatred towards Gods. Gorr turns into evil and decides to kill every god in the world. In Gorr’s opinion, Gods are so selfish. And they will never listen to anyone’s prayers and they will never help the weak.
Even though they had power they are always focused on their own needs. Thus Gorr becomes Gorr the God butcher we haven’t got to see this whole story in the Movie. The story was changed by Marvel for some reason they didn’t include any fighting between Gods or Gorr’s emotional words.
Gorr the God Butcher Ultimate Powers in Comics:-
Initially, Gorr doesn’t have any powers but after getting the All-black Necrosword Gorr becomes the Gorr the God Butcher and gets so many powers. Which are even greater than Thor God of Thunder. The sword gave him immortality, Flight, and all other superhuman abilities and addition to this powers, Gorr can make weapons and Armor using All-black Necrosword and he also gets the ability to regenerate at a very fast speed.
And because of the regeneration he had, Gorr became stronger than Thor and also one of the most powerful villains in Marvel. These are the normal powers that every user of All-black Necrosword gets. But Gorr is also able to get powers like creating so many versions of his dead wife and his son and he can also create Black Berserkers which protects Gorr from powerful attacks from other Gods, All because of his hatred towards gods.
Another interesting fact is that the All-black Necrosword is directly connected to Venom in comics. So that’s the reason why the black Berserkers mostly look like venom and also why their structure is similar to Venom. And because of these deadly powers, he became stronger than all Gods and he also created a God bomb with by enslaving Gods. And this God bomb destroys every god across time and space.
Why Gorr’s physical look is different in the Movie?
The major doubt to all Marvel fans after watching Thor Love and Thunder is why the MCU Gorr is completely different from the Comic Gorr. The comic Gorr doesn’t have any Nose and has long tentacles and he is very similar to Voldemort in Harry Potter. Whereas Gorr in the movie is different he has a Nose and doesn’t have any tentacles and dosent look anything like Gorr the God Butcher.
It is because Marvel doesn’t want to cover Christian Bale with cosmetics and prosthetics. And reduce his Acting skills in the Movie, and Marvel wanted to extract the full potential of Christian bale acting. So Marvel compromised with the comic look Gorr and another main reason for dropping out of the look of Comic Gorr is
The Gorr character is very complicated because the story is tragic and also other aspects of the Gorr character are very emotional. And above all the Gorr character is new to MCU and under Taika Waititi’s direction there will be humor and other toppings too to cover all these things. The perfect look of Comic Gorr is a little price to pay and we all know how well did Christian Bale do in the Movie.
The Ultimate fight Gorr the God butcher Vs Thor in Comics:-
Well, the fight we have seen in the Thor love and thunder movie between Thor and Gorr was pretty good. But the fight between Gorr the God Butcher vs Thor in Comics is way better than the Movie Gorr Vs Thor fight. So let us look into the great fight between Thor vs Gorr the God Butcher in Comics.
After defeating most of the Gods in the universe. Gorr finally reaches out to Thor on Earth and makes Thor a prisoner and asks Thor about other Asgardian gods. But Thor escapes from prison and gives a tough fight to Gorr and injures him. After getting injured Gorr escapes from Thor.
Gorr understands that to defeat the Earth Gods he needs more power. So he goes to Chronica this is in Cygnus Constellation. From there we can travel across time and space and also time travel is possible from Chronica.
At the same time Gorr prisons some of the Gods and makes them slaves and force them to create a God bomb. By using this bomb Gorr can kill every God across Time and space at the same time. Thor somehow knows about the God Bomb and also knows that Gorr became way more powerful than him.
So Thor brings different timelines Thors to fight with Gorr. A total of 3 Thor’s come to fight with Gorr even though the 3 Thors combined. They struggle so hard to defeat Gorr because Gorr’s determination to kill the gods is Dominant than the powers of Thor and one of the 3 Thor’s from different timeline even throws Gorr into the sun. But Gorr covers the entire sun with his Black berserker and makes the sun into his shadow.
And after the ultimate fight goes on having a 1v3 fight. Finally, the present Thor uses his Mjolnir and future Thor Mjolnir’s power and kills Gorr. But before dying Gorr makes Thor lose all his power by telling Thor the truth that there is no use for Gods in this world and they are only a burden to people. And after listening to Gorr’s words Thor realizes that they were true.
And in the 2014 original scene comics. Nick Fury tells Thor what Gorr said was true in his ear after listening to the words Nick Fury said. Thor realizes and loses his confidence and he becomes unworthy to lift Mjolnir because one of the things to become worthy to become Mjolnir is believing in himself. But Thor lost it after listening to Gorr’s words and we also haven’t seen any of this story or fights in the Thor love and thunder movie.
Why was Christian Bale very Hyped for the Gorr the God Butcher Role?
The Gorr the God Butcher role is played by the Christian bale. Who is one of the most talented actors in the world. He is a four-time Academy Award Nominee and won the Oscar for the best supporting actor. Christain Bale was officially cast as the Gorr the God Butcher in December 2020.
