Who is Gorr the Godslayer?

In the comics, Gorr is a humanoid alien from a nameless planet. Gorr belonged to a people who had to live under the most extreme conditions, constantly starving and dying of thirst. In the course of his life he lost his parents early, but that was not all – eventually his wife and child also died. However, his people should trust in the gods, who would eventually come to the rescue. But when two wrestling gods finally landed on the planet in battle, Gorr’s life changed.

One of the two gods wielded a terrifying, living sword that was all black – later than that “All Black” revealed. This is a symbiote (like Venom!) and bonded with Gorr to give him untold power. Angered and bitter that no gods had ever helped his people, Gorr slew the other surviving god of this duel – the godslayer was born.
