The character has been established as a recurring element in Marvel's in-story cosmology and has appeared in various alternate reality stories and titles such as Earth X and "Living Planet" arc published in Exiles vol. 2, #52 - 53 (November - December 2004).
Ganymede is the last surviving member of a race of warrior women known as the Spinsterhood, a group which was formed with the sole purpose of destroying the cosmic being known as Tyrant. After a centuries long cyrogenic sleep, she awakened to find Tyrant's servants kidnapping powerful cosmic entities in order to drain their powers for their master's own ends. Mistaking Silver Surfer for a minion of Tyrant, Ganymede attacked him and the two fought until Tyrant's minions ambushed and kidnapped them both.
Ganymede, along with Tyrant's other hostages, Silver Surfer, Terrax, Morg, Beta Ray Bill, Gladiator and Jack of Hearts escaped their imprisonment and attacked Tyrant together, only to fail miserably. Galactus arrived and ended the battle. After that, those involved went their separate ways except for Ganymede, who decided to stay with Jack of Hearts to help nurse him back to health after his selfless sacrifice that freed his fellow captives. Ganymede and Jack of Hearts had a few adventures together, wherein they struck up a romantic relationship. Jack of Hearts would later become a member of the Avengers. Ganymede, however, has been absent from any comic tales for about 10 years.
Gargantus was an android sent by an extraterrestrial invasion force to take over the small town of Granville. In order to hide their presence, the aliens decided to disguise the robot as a giant Neanderthal man. Fortunately, Iron Man was in the vicinity and discerned that Gargantus was a robot (it had light bulbs in its eyes, which gave it away).
Iron Man challenged Gargantus to a fight and led Gargantus into a trap where it was pulled apart by three magnets controlled by Iron Man. Iron Man then exposed an alien space ship, hiding nearby in a cloud that he noticed was not moving, that had been controlling Gargantus by remote control. The aliens fled from the scene.
Much later, Gargantus returned in Tony Stark's nightmares, which were induced by Count Nefaria. In these dreams Gargantus was with all of Iron Man's other enemies in a great battle against Iron Man. He had a more human appearance by then, and was capable of speech.
Gargantus is a giant robot that looks like a Neanderthal man, with the exception of its glowing artificial eyes. It has superhuman strength and agility, and the ability to hypnotize people. Gargantus also carries a giant wooden club, which was ineffective against Iron Man.
The reason for its design as a Neanderthal was that the aliens had not been to Earth since 80,000 years ago and thought our planet was still occupied by cavemen. The aliens postulated that if they made a large caveman, everyone on Earth would acknowledge it as their leader and surrender the planet without a fight.
A *dream* version of Gargantus (created by Count Nefaria) appears in the Iron Man segment of The Marvel Super Heroes show (1966).
Gargantus was also the name of a giant blue aquatic humanoid monster that appeared in Strange Tales #80 and #85.
Within the context of the stories, Sean Garrison is the unknowing father of Laurie Collins and a mutant who can manipulate others' emotions with pheromones. He uses this power to seduce Gail Collins, but when she becomes pregnant with Laurie, the presence of his DNA inside her makes Gail immune to his power, and she breaks up with him.

Gary made his live action appearance in Iron Man 3 played by Adam Pally. The plot followed the Extremis story line from the comics, which is when Gary was introduced. Here Gary is a little older and, unlike his comic book counterpart, is a huge fan of Tony Stark, going so far as to have his hair and beard match Stark's and even has a tattoo of him, which Stark confuses for a "Mexican Scott Baio." Stark sneaks into Gary's news van and has him help him access old videos of Aldrich Killian's extremis test subjects.

When the X-Man Havok is found in a comatose state, she is assigned to his care. Despite Havok's only real reaction being an energetic appreciation of the sunlight, she develops romantic feelings towards him. When the X-Men discover he is still alive (as he was presumed dead), Cyclops, Alex's brother, comes to collect him. Annie and her son soon move in.
While Annie is a normal human, her son, Carter Ghazikhanian, is a mutant. Annie has some anti-mutant prejudices, but she tries getting over them. She developed a personal friendship with the X-Man Northstar, and kept secret his romantic feelings for Iceman. She is seen many times administering to wounded X-Men.
When Havok wakes from his coma he pursues a relationship with Annie, even after becoming engaged to Polaris. Havok later leaves Polaris at the wedding altar, further damaging the woman's already-shaky mental state. He and Annie have a romantic relationship (despite her occasional flirts with Iceman) until she leaves the mansion. She fears for her son's safety because of supervillain attacks upon the mansion.

Seeking to put a stop to the carnage, Floyd convinced the mutant Archangel to help lure the Ghoul into the open by using himself as bait.

Her first shown mission with the group is to North Africa. They battle drug-addled tribesmen who are attempting to overthrow the local government. During the mission, Genie's teammate Sluk dies in a tank explosion. Genie herself gets a low performance rating, as her alcohol mixing produces dangerous tremors.

Alphonsus Lefszycic gains his powers from his older brother, a researcher in bionics. His brother's initial research results in two cybernetically enhanced lobsters named "Don" and "Bill". Alphonsus' brother and his partner treat him harshly and give him the nickname "Gomi" which comes from a Japanese word meaning 'junk'. Gomi idolizes the two and at first does not realize he is being mistreated.[volume & issue needed]
Under pressure to produce results beyond the lobsters, the scientists experiment on Gomi himself and attempt to give him telekinetic abilities (the scientists view telekinesis as being the perfect power, but as they are also hero-geeks who idolize Marvel Girl/Phoenix, it's a little hard to work out which is cause and which is effect). When Gomi's new cybernetics produce a powerful, destructive blast, further funding for the project is denied. Gomi steals the lobsters, to save them from being eaten, and runs away. It soon turns out Gomi has a psychic link with the lobsters.[volume & issue needed]
Gomi eventually joins the Fallen Angels, a team of adolescent mutant heroes that were a spin-off from the New Mutants team, and their adventures take him out of this dimension entirely. Gomi suffers a tragedy when the team enlists the red tyrannosaurus Devil Dinosaur and his ape-like companion Moon-Boy. Devil Dinosaur accidentally steps on Don, killing him. Despite this, Gomi sticks with the team, later assisting them in battling an alien organization who wishes to capture mutants to jump-start their race's evolution.
Gomi is a cyborg telekinetic with limited ability to move objects with his mind. He most often manifested this ability with a concussive blast as a solid beam of uni-directional force. This blast was easily capable of hurling grown men considerable distances and damaging property. His genetically engineered bionic lobsters Don and Bill both possessed exceptional strength, endurance, and stamina far beyond that of standard crustaceans, and even that of normal humans.
Gomi received an entry in the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Update '89 #3.

She is "rescued" from two "muggers" (who were actually trying to save her) by two women who put her on a bus from the Church of Gibborim. Six months later, she is a devoted member of the church. She attempted to leave to see her daughter, but was detained by the church's leader, Leslie Dean. Destiny is soon sacrificed in a ritual by being placed in a glowing bed by the Pride members. She is revealed to still be alive, but is presumably killed by Victor Stein who was still in the room. Her body is found washed up on shore a day later with the Pride telling authorities that she was on a mission trip in London.
Michele Gonzales is a supporting character in Marvel Comics' Spider-Man series. She first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man #592 as the older sister of Vin Gonzales who went to represent her brother in court. Later she becomes Peter Parker's roommate and a potential love interest. She is a criminal defense lawyer and is known for her volcanic temper. She is a student of Muay Thai and Tae Bo Kickboxing and also has a shotgun in her bedroom.
When Michele's brother, NYPD officer Vin Gonzales, was arrested and sent to prison for his part in the spider-tracer killings, after she helped him secure a plea bargain for a reduced sentence, she moved into his apartment - of which she was signed up as the co-tenant - to look after the place. Peter had been gone for two months and was unaware that she had moved in, and their first meeting does not paint him in a good light. After living with him for a little bit, she softened towards him and accompanied him to the wedding of Aunt May. When Peter's ex-girlfriend, Mary Jane Watson showed up, he began drinking in excess and woke up the next morning in bed with Michele.
When The Chameleon kidnapped Peter in order to infiltrate the office of Mayor J. Jonah Jameson, he and Michele sleep together, with her believing it to be Peter. When Peter escapes, he finds that Michele now believes them to be boyfriend and girlfriend and has imposed a lot of new rules, such as when to be home and when to go to bed. Unable to take her demands any longer, Peter tells her that it was the Chameleon, and not he that she slept with. Michele is enraged, believing it to be a lie and punches him in the face, sending him to the floor. Michele's anger continues to boil for some time. During "The Gauntlet" Electro gains an upgrade in powers thanks to Sasha Kravinoff and her family. He campaigns against corporate tyrants such as Dexter Bennett and gets quite a lot of momentum going for his cause. While working on a way to defeat Electro, Peter short circuits the apartment, sending Michele into an ever-fouler mood than she was previously.
Peter eventually gets to know her softer side when she brings home one of her clients. Michele has been defending him for years, and trying to help him get his life back on track. Peter falsely believes the client to be her new boyfriend, and when his spider-sense goes off in the man's presence, he follows him to find that he is involved with criminal gang-leader The Hood. Michele also followed him and the client reveals his guilt and attempts to hurt Michele when Peter saves her. She confides in him how she thought she could make a difference. Peter tells her that she is a good person and the two reach an understanding and decide to be friends, her fury temporarily subsided. However, Michele is later seen selling Peter's clothes to pay for his part of their rent.
Michele had arranged for Peter to come with her to pick up her brother, Vin, from prison. Peter got delayed by his duties as Spider-Man which made Michele angry. She was shocked and even angrier when he beat her to Vin, despite telling her he would be late. He was able to get there faster as Spider-Man. Vin remarks how their bickering reminds him of a couple, but Michele claims that she is "over" Peter. She goes to Harry's farewell party with Peter and Vin, but leaves New York soon after. With Peter now dating Carlie Cooper and Vin's legal troubles over, she is free to go back to her law firm in Chicago. As she locks their apartment one final time, she wishes Peter well with his life and tells him he's not a bad guy.
Good Boy (Goodness "Good" Silva) is a fictional werewolf super heroine in Marvel Comics. The character, created by Zac Gorman and Will Robson, first appeared in Great Lakes Avengers Vol. 2 #1 (October 2016).
Goodness Silva seemed to be an average otaku girl who lived in the suburbs of Detroit with her brother, Lucky. In actuality, Goodness and Lucky are lupine beings who could transform at will. One night, their house was attacked by Firebrand and Pitchfork, severely injuring Lucky and forcing Goodness to transform and attack the criminals. Goodness took Lucky to the hospital where she saw Detroit councilman, Dick Snerd, praise the villains for destroying the 'crime hotspots'. Goodness was later taken into police custody, she apparently threw a bottle at his head, and in her nervousness transformed. The Great Lakes Avengers, who were there because they had attacked a bar, calmed her down before being informed by the Avengers' liaison, Connie Ferrari, that she was an official member of the Avengers, albeit temporarily. She later goes with Big Bertha and Doorman to Nain Rogue's bar, where they discover that Nain Rogue is the alter ego of Dick Snerd, upon finding him in his office drunk. Good Boy and Bertha take a drunken Snerd hostage and hear his backstory, or at least partially some of it. Realizing that Snerd has numerous connections and would potentially get back on the streets, Good Boy transforms and brutally assaults Snerd just as Ferrari sees the aftermath of the carnage she inflicted upon him. Later, the team drops off a gravely injured Snerd at the hospital.
After Connie tells the team to lie low for a couple of days, Goodness is visited by her brother Lucky, who tells her that they need to leave town because of what she did to Nain Rogue. After a talk with Flatman, Goodness and Lucky prepare to leave Detroit. While on the road however, Goodness receives a text from Bertha and realizes she is in trouble. With no other option, Goodness ditches Lucky at a rest stop and heads back to Detroit. Upon arriving, Good Boy helps the team perform a maneuver that has Doorman and Mr. Immortal get inside Dr. Nod's body, where Mr. Immortal kills him by punching his heart. After their victory, the team is visited by Deadpool who tells them that they've been fired and can no longer use the Avengers name, leaving them confused.

Snarkle enters their dimension with the intent of having their revenge, but Gordon chooses to stay declaring "Goodbye Snarkle. I never liked you", leaving Snarkle to be comically defeated by the younger Inhumans.

Greystone is from the same alternate future as Bishop, Archer, Fixx, and Shard. He is a member of the Xavier Underground Enforcers (XUE), a rogue branch of the Xavier's Security Enforcers (XSE) who wanted to travel back in time and change their future.
When he was a child, Greystone lived with his mother in a type of mutant concentration camp. As part of their punishment, each prisoner was required to have an "M" branded over their right eye to outwardly signify their status as a mutant. During his branding process by an evil man named Micah, Greystone panicked and—due to the large amount of stress—manifested his mutant power years before the traditional onset at puberty. This resulted in him breaking the machine (leaving him with only a partial brand), and trying to break out with his mother. Micah shot and killed her and was about to kill Greystone too if not for the incitement of the Summers Rebellion which ultimately led to mutant freedom. However, this was not as grand as it seemed, for Greystone became an orphan and a street urchin outside the confines of the camp.
Upon discovering that Shard was in the present, the X.U.E. managed to travel back in time due to the psionic link Fixx created between the members of the X.U.E. which Shard was also a member of, and inhabited the bodies of three recently deceased people. Greystone inhabited the body of the adolescent teen Brian Young.
While looking in the newspaper one day, Greystone happens to see the picture of a young boy named Micah. He immediately recognizes him as the same Micah who murdered his mother and concocts a plan to murder the child, thus averting his future and his mother's death. He, along with Fixx and Archer, track down the boy and Greystone tries to kill him. Archer and Fixx convince him that it is unethical to condemn the child for crimes he has not yet committed and the trio leaves. They had tried to change the future but instead ended up joining X-Factor.
Greystone slowly developed temporal insanity, believing that his mission was accomplished, and he could go home to a better world and be reunited with his mother, who might theoretically be alive. In an attempt to return to his own time, Greystone built a flying time machine, but due to shoddy craftmanship and unsound theories, the craft exploded, seemingly killing Greystone and Havok, who was attempting to stop him.
Greystone can increase his body mass, density, durability, stamina and strength exponentially but at a price: the bigger he gets, the more deformed and horrific-looking he becomes. Greystone can appear as his host body or in his original body—humorously a small, white child—also carrying the memories from both bodies.

Grotto is a small-time criminal and the frequent partner of Turk Barrett. Like Turk, he works for Eric Slaughter and the Kingpin, resulting in frequent encounters with Daredevil and at one point encountered Elektra.

When the Kingpin returned to San Francisco, Grotto was rehired as one of his elite members.
Grotto in other media
- Grotto, legal name Elliot Grote, appears in the second season of Daredevil, portrayed by McCaleb Burnett. He is a low-ranking member of the Kitchen Irish mob, serving as a driver and occasional assassin for their leader Nesbitt. After Frank Castle attacks a Kitchen Irish meeting, of which Grotto is the sole survivor, Grotto flees to Josie's Bar, coincidentally while Matt Murdock, Karen Page and Foggy Nelson are there. Matt, tipped off by Grotto's adrenaline spike and observing that he's carrying a weapon, approaches Grotto, who in turn asks the Nelson & Murdock trio to get him witness protection. While Karen guards Grotto as he recovers in the hospital from a shrapnel wound he received in the shooting, Frank shows up and makes a second attempt to kill him, but Karen manages to get Grotto out of the hospital and to the 15th Precinct. With Matt recuperating from getting shot in the head by Frank during the attack, Karen and Foggy are left to negotiate a plea deal for Grotto with District Attorney Smanatha Reyes and Assistant District Attorney Blake Tower. As part of the deal, Grotto will give up an associate in the mafia named Edgar Brass in exchange for witness protection. However, Reyes double-crosses Nelson & Murdock, instead using Grotto as bait for Frank, with "Brass" actually being an ESU officer. A firefight breaks out and Grotto flees the scene. He later calls Karen from a payphone to unceremoniously fire the firm, despite Karen's efforts to apologize for Reyes' double-cross. He does not get far, as Frank captures him and takes him to a rooftop where he has already captured and chained up Matt. Frank gives Matt a gun, and the choice of killing either one of them. Matt shoots the chains securing him, but is unable to stop Frank from fatally shooting Grotto. Out of guilt, Matt, Karen and Foggy hold a private funeral for Grotto at Matt's church. In his eulogy, the most positive thing Father Lantom can say about Grotto is that he went to and donated to the church, and he explains to Matt afterwards that if they ignored his criminal past, there would be no learning from it.
Sean Bernard was once a Vancouver police officer. He was ambushed by some of his fellow officers once he reported them to internal affairs for drug trafficking. Saved by Wolverine, Sean was soon taken into the custody of Department H and trained as one of their agents. This is where he met James Hudson, the original Guardian.
James gave Sean a battlesuit, the Groundhog suit (that was originally intended for the purpose of terraforming) and Sean was inducted into The Flight (the precursor to Alpha Flight). He meets Stitch, who takes an instant liking to him. After their first mission against Egghead in which his teammate Saint Elmo dies, Sean gives up heroics and leaves the Flight upset at the fact that most of its team members were lunatics and untrained fighters. He returned to the Vancouver Police where no murder charges were brought up. From there, he watched as the Alpha Flight team was introduced.
Groundhog possesses no powers beyond being in top physical condition. The Weapon Alpha prototype armor he wore possessed several abilities including flight, enhanced strength, and the ability to fire electro-magnetic blasts from the glove units.
