Who Is Gorr The God Butcher?
Gorr The God Butcher is the villain in Thor: Love and Thunder. Gorr the God Butcher first appeared in the January 2015 comic Thor: God of Thunder #2.
Gorr’s story began more than three thousand years ago on a planet very different from the earth we’re living on today. The conditions were terrible and it was difficult to survive them. People couldn’t do much other than pray to the gods to have mercy on them.
However, this obviously did not work. Gorr lost his wife, his children, and his mother due to a natural calamity. This caused him to lash out at the Gods and his anger was so intense that the Gods came down to earth and challenged him to a battle.
Gorr took advantage of his weapon- All-Black the Necrosword- and murdered his first God, leading him to get the title of ‘The God Butcher’.
Gorr’s powers stem directly from the Necrosword, which bestows its user with gifts such as immortality and flight.
