Who is Gorgon? ( Inhuman )

Who is Gorgon?
Gorgon is a member of the Inhuman Royal Family.  He has superstrength and the ability to generate Shockwaves from stomping he feet.  His appearance is similar to that of a mythological satyr.

First Appearance:  Fantastic 4 #44 (1965)


Gorgon is a cousin of King of Blackbolt.  He mutated from his exposure to Terrigen by getting hooved feet that can generate powerful seismic shock waves when he stomps.

He is considered one of Blackbolt's most loyal followers and often acts as the King's bodyguard.  He also trains those who have just been exposed to Terrigen.

Gorgon is responsible for siding with Blackbolt over the genetics council and hiding the King's child on Earth.   The Genetics Council feared the vast power potential of child from Medusa and Blackbolt and thus forbid it.

He did go against Blackbolt on one issue.  Blackbolt wanted to free the Alpha Primitives from servitude / slavery while Gorgon thought they should remain that way.  He is often shown as being a traditionalist, opposed to change, and sometimes quick to anger.

After 2nd Terrigenesis

Gorgon is captured by US Military after a battle between human and Earth forces.  He is re-exposed to Terrigen which mutates him further.  After his second exposure he is more beastly looking and far more powerful.

In the storyline of the series of Inhuman he is shown aiding Queen Medusa rebuilt a fallen Attilan and helping her track down her missing husband Blackbolt.
