Following his humiliating defeat at the hands of mortal followers of the Thor Odinson of Earth-616, Gorr the God Butcher realized that he could not continue his deicidal rampage by himself. Gorr discovered he could use All-Black the Necrosword to manifest semi-sentient bestial creatures dubbed the Black Berserkers, which he considered to be a part of himself.[3][4]

With each subsequent murder Gorr performed, he left a Black Berserker present to attack anyone who came to inquiring about the missing gods or search for their killer; knowing that Thor would eventually seek him out.[1][2]

Gorr's prison-planet was policed by Black Berserkers, who served as slave drivers and guards for the captured gods.[5] During his battle with the three Thors, Gorr manifested a massive Black Berserker called the Black Leviathan; which tried to eat the young Thor and All-Father Thor before the latter used the Thor-Force to destroy it.[6] The Black Berserkers were seemingly either destroyed or reabsorbed into the All-Black symbiote following Gorr's defeat, and none of All-Black's subsequent hosts have seen fit to manifest them.

Powers and Abilities


These creatures were powerful enough to fight Gods to stalemate.[1][7] Like their kindred, the symbiotes, they can shapeshift their limbs into bladed weaponry to augment their combat abilities.[7]


They were told to have no fighting skills but only fury.[1]

Average Strength level

Thor stated they were very strong,[1] as they are powerful enough to fight evenly against Thor the Avenger and in groups can overwhelm gods as powerful as All-Father Thor, who inherited the Odinforce from his father.


  • While powerful enough to defeat most gods in combat, the Black Berserkers can be destroyed if they sustain enough damage. Unlike their kindred, the symbiotes, they appear to lack specific vulnerabilities to intense heat and sonics.


Population: As offshoots of the All-Black symbiote, the Black Berserkers' population varies depending on how many Gorr chooses to have manifested; and they can be re-absorbed back into the primordial symbiote at will.[6]


  • When Loki bonded to the Necrosword, he was able to form "Necro-Ravens", similar to the Black Berserkers.[8]
