All-Black the Necrosword: Normally, Gorr is a fairly weak, non-super powered creature, but thanks to "All-Black the Necrosword", a weapon Gorr found on the body of a dead god, he attains the following powers.
Enhanced Abilities: Gorr has upper level super human strength, agility, speed, endurance and durability, comparable to Thor.
Umbrakinesis: Gorr has the power to summon, create, control and/or manipulate darkness from his body. He can create wings, weapons, and a shroud out of darkness.
Longevity: Gorr has lived for over 3000 years and still looks in his prime, though this might be the doing of his weapon.
Regeneration: Gorr is able to recover from a lightning strike within four days with no signs of that injury, as well growing back an arm that Thor had cut off (with assistance from his weapon).
3000 years ago, on a planet without a name, Gorr lived a life of death and torment. His mother died protecting him from predators, and his wife and child succumbed to the harshness of his home world, also perishing. Despite Gorr's prayers to save them, and the ritual sacrifices that his family made, no gods answered his prayers. These events led him to curse the deities of his planet, and he was cast out by his tribe for blasphemy.
Wandering the scalding deserts, Gorr witnessed two Gods fall to earth locked in combat. One god was already dead, however, the other asked Gorr for help. This infuriated Gorr, and he screamed: "Where were you when my children were starving? When my wife was screaming for your help?!... Where were you when we needed our gods?!" - at this point, the dead gods weapon All-Black the Necrosword, bound itself to him, and in a blind rage, Gorr stabbed the injured god to death.
Wondering if there are more gods to slaughter, Gorr picked up the weapon and set off into space, on a vendetta against all of divinity.
