Gamora in Guardians of the Galaxy
The countdown to Guardians of the Galaxy is almost complete, hopefully you can hunt down some tickets for premier. While you do, we continue our look at each characters first appearance, today we look at the lady of the group, Gamora. See previous review in our Guardians of the Galaxy Character Guide.
Gamora made her first appearance in Strange Tales #180 alongside Adam Warlock. A graded gem mint 9.8 can be added to your collection for the low price of $1,500 while ungraded will cost you less then $10. This is the best deal of all the characters appearing in Guardians of the Galaxy, especially since Comic legend Jim Starlin wrote, drew and colored the issue.
Gamora is the last of her species, the Zen Whoberi. Her kind were exterminated by the Badoon. As a child Gamora was found by Thanos and trained to be a assassin. Her skills earned her the nickname "The deadliest woman in the whole galaxy". As she grew older Gamora realized that Thanos was more of a threat then anyone she had faced so she turned on him and has battled him since.
Gamora battles alongside Adam Warlock for control of the Soul Gem against Magnus and the Black Knights of the Soul Gem. During this battle it is revealed that Magnus is Adam Warlock from the future and he is put on trail.
In Guardians of the Galaxy
Zoe Saldana plays Gamora in the film she will be a member of the Guardians of the Galaxy in their fight against Ronan the Accuser.
Now it's time to go out and find Marvel Tales #180, buy your tickets for GOTG and enjoy the fruits of your spoils.
Good Luck on Your Hunt!
