Complicated in nature, Gamora and Nebula’s relationship changes once they both break free from Thanos. Failing to defeat Xandar and Gamora at the side of Ronan, Nebula goes off on her own. Arrested by the Sovereign, Gamora enlists the Guardians to save her, but Nebula still looks upon her “sister” with hatred and contempt. On Ego’s home planet, Gamora and Nebula fight, resulting in Nebula revealing the anger and pain their childhood caused.
Enemy of My Enemy
As Thanos begins plans to obtain all six Infinity Stones, he sends his “daughters” Nebula and Gamora to serve Ronan the Accuser, whom Nebula trained under, on his mission to acquire the Power Stone, housed in the Orb at the time. Nebula seeks to be Ronan’s favorite and right-hand woman, pledging her allegiance to him when he harnesses the Power Stone’s energy and threatens the Mad Titan.
On Berhert, as a captive to the Guardians, Nebula is able to change her circumstances when the Ravagers, led by Taserface, mutiny against Yondu. With a new cybernetic gifted by Kraglin and a M-ship, Nebula and Taserface’s Ravagers form an alliance to collect the Sovereign high priestess Ayesha’s hefty bounty on the Guardians of the Galaxy. However, the “sisters” end up forming a shaky alliance after discovering the true nature of Ego and his planet. After defeating Ego, Nebula is offered a spot on the Guardians, but refuses, stating that she must kill Thanos if she is ever to be at peace with herself.
Years later, still determined to kill her “father,” Nebula fights alongside Guardians Star-Lord, Drax, and Mantis, Avengers Iron Man and Spider-Man, and the Master of the Mystic Arts Doctor Strange, against Thanos.
