Marvel Games Comic Connection: Gamora

Your Mann at Marvel, Bill Rosemann, presents a tour of Gamora's comic book history as she stars in the brand-new 'Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy'!

Hello, True Believers! Welcome to the latest installment of Marvel Games Comic Connection, where your pals at Marvel Games search through the House of Ideas’ cavernous Comic Book Vault to spotlight the incredible issues that inspire the amazing additions of the coolest characters hitting our most popular video games.

This week’s stellar installment celebrates the recent worldwide launch of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, which GamingTrend.com calls “the biggest surprise of the year, and joins Marvel’s Spider-Man as one of the best Marvel video games in the last decade.” Created by the mad geniuses at Eidos-Montreal, this single-player action-adventure game takes you from Knowhere to the furthest reaches of the universe as our beloved rag-tag band of underdogs attempt to pay the bills, stay alive and—oh, yeah—save the galaxy!

Continuing the Marvel Games tradition of celebrating classic comic book characters by reimagining them for new medium, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy features a unique version of Gamora, the former assassin raised by the infamous Thanos, which has players thrilled and cosplayers running to their workshops.

So just who is this skilled swordswoman and what drives her to carve a path of vengeance through the stars? Let’s leap into this week’s cosmic Comic Connection!
