Boasting powerful hoof-like legs and acute combat prowess, no one can stop Gorgon while he stands. As a member of the Inhuman royals, and cousin to their leader Black Bolt, Gorgon not only protects his family, he defends their land Attilan from threats both foreign…and familial.
Royal Inhuman and Commander
Gorgon is a member of the Royal Family of the Inhumans—a sub-species of humanity from the city Attilan that was created through Kree experiments. As such, he is allies with most of his family including his cousin and King, Black Bolt, his wife, Queen Medusa, Medusa’s sister Crystal, and his cousins Triton and Karnak. Gorgon’s mother, Milena, was an archivist and his father, Korath, an architect who was related to the Inhumans’ royalty. At a young age, Gorgon experienced the traditional Terrigen Mist exposure, known as Terrigenesis, which allows Inhumans to unlock their potential for super human abilities.
Gorgon developed a super human physique including tremendous strength and modified legs, which can generate powerful shock waves by stamping his feet. By his teenage years, Gorgon was a close friend of his cousins in the royal family including Black Bolt, Medusa and Triton—but was closest to Karnak. Owing to his formidable strength, Gorgon took a career in the Inhumans’ militia, and although he mastered his powers responsibly, he remained short-tempered.
Gorgon, the Seismic Guardian
Gorgon’s powers are centered in his massively muscled legs and hoof-like feet; approximately three-quarters of Gorgon’s weight is in the lower half of his body. Due to his low center of gravity, it is extremely difficult to knock him off balance and, were he to fall from almost any height, he would land on his feet.
