Who Is Gorr the God Butcher? Answered
Gorr the God Butcher is a supervillain, who made his comic debut in Jason Aaron and Esad Ribic’s Thor: God of Thunder #1 which was released in January of 2013. In Thor: Love and Thunder, the character is pretty similar to his comic counterpart.
At the start of the movie, we see him walking through the desert with his daughter, Love. It isn’t long till we find out that they are the last two left in his family, as famine and war have ravaged their home. After his daughter dies of starvation, Gorr finds his god, Rapu, in an Oasis.
When Rapu laughs at his calls for help and then tries to kill Gorr for insulting him, Gorr takes up the Necrosword and kills Rapu. After getting the sword, he then becomes possessed by its evil, pledging to kill all the rest of the gods with it – as its the only sword that can kill gods – since his failed to help him.
Alongside killing gods in Thor: Love and Thunder, the blade allows its wielder to create a shroud of Berserkers constructed out of the darkness and razor-sharp tendrils made of shadows. He is also able to move at insane speeds and can teleport through shadows.
