As reported by Screen Rant, in the comics, Gorr has a tragic back story. The Marvel supervillain was born on a planet with no name and kept faith in God even as starvation hit his planet. When he loses his parents, wife, and children, he loses faith in Gods. He is chastised for his beliefs and plans revenge against the Gods. He eventually finds his hands on a weapon called All-Black the Necrosword and murders his first God. In the comics, he lands on Earth and crosses paths with Thor, torturing him to extract information about the Asgardians.
