100 sci fi women #84: Gamora

Gamora Guardians of the Galaxy (film version)

guardians-of-the-galaxy-gamora-101682-101718Gamora is the last of her species, adopted by the evil Thanos, responsible for the deaths of her family and race. She has superhuman strength and agility and is a highly skilled warrior and martial artist, but more importantly she is enormously clever and patient. She is willing to wait a long time to take her revenge on Thanos and his lieutenant Ronan, who she hates but masks this hatred in the role of the dutiful daughter and warrior. Having spent so much time amongst people she does not like, Gamora is slow to trust and to form friendships. Nonetheless, once made, she is a loyal friend with a strong sense of righteousness. She cannot let Ronan and Thanos destroy an entire world, and is willing to fight this even if the odds are hugely against her. When she sees Peter being affected by the Infinity Stone, she does not let him die alone; she is the first to take his home. She may be a warrior and assassin, but eventually she is willing to learn to dance.

I have lived most of my life surrounded by my enemies. I would be grateful to die surrounded by my friends.

I am going to die surrounded by the biggest idiots in the galaxy.
