Who is Gorr the God Butcher?
As his name would suggest, Gorr the God Butcher is a supervillain who’s devoted his life to the killing of gods. Of course, Gorr’s crusade did not begin on a whim, but out of an insatiable need for vengeance.
In the Marvel Comics, Gorr was born into extreme poverty on a planet with no name, one which saw he and his parents scrape by on the brink of starvation every single day. To make matters worse for Gorr, both his mother and father would die while he was still a child, leaving him to fend for himself on an unforgiving world.
