Wolverine Quesions[edit]

Uh, what is this? "Mainly associated with Wolverine"? The Gorgon is an Inhuman and has been so since 1966. Who is this Johnny-come-lately? --Pc13 17:09, 2005 May 20 (UTC)

I suppose they chose to call this character The Gorgon because his power seemed to be reminiscent of that possessed by the Gorgon Medusa in Greek Mythology. This isn't the same character that's a member of the Inhumans. The Inhuman Gorgon has made only a handful of appearances within the past 15 years.
The Wolverine villain supposedly known as Gorgon died after a handful of appearances. The Inhuman known as Gorgon continues to appear on a regular basis throughout the Marvel Universe and expand on a history of nearly 40 years. I'm changing this article to focus on the Inhuman character and reducing the relatively obscure ninja to one or two paragraphs. --Pc13 23:14, 14 November 2005 (UTC)
I've moved the obscure ninja to his own article and changed this one to the more famous and more historically relevant Inhuman. --Pc13 16:35, 15 November 2005 (UTC)


In light of this new Gorgon (the Wolverine villain), should this article be changed to "Gorgon (Inhuman)"? Dr Archeville 02:32, 16 June 2006 (UTC)

We should use the official Marvel designations. So, they should be: Gorgon I (Marvel Comics) and Gorgon II (Marvel Comics). Wilfredo Martinez 16:34, 24 June 2006 (UTC)


Merge[edit]

I put the Merge template on the relavant pages as I saw them. Please remember to do that when propsing a merge :)

This proposal is to merge Gorgon (Wolverine villain) into this page. -- Ipstenu (talk|contribs) 16:25, 7 July 2006 (UTC)

Merge -- isn't it Wikipedia/WikiComics policy to keep characters with the same name done by the same publisher on one article/page? If so, the two Gorgrons should be on the same page. Dr Archeville 20:25, 6 July 2006 (UTC)

Merge, the two can easily fit one page. Kusonaga 16:15, 7 July 2006 (UTC)

Merge Tomi Shishido's dead, I can't see much needing to be added. -- Ipstenu (talk|contribs) 16:22, 7 July 2006 (UTC)

Merge since both can fit in one page (but Gorgon I clearly has priority.) Note that perhaps the page should be renamed "Gorgon (Marvel Comics)" as I suspect there are other Gorgon characters in comics. -Wilfredo Martinez 14:25, 9 July 2006 (UTC)

Confirmed- There was a Gorgon in DC's Hybrid supervillain team, and I'll bet there are others, including the actual mythological gorgons. -Wilfredo Martinez 20:30, 9 July 2006 (UTC)

Keep - These are two different characters.--Gonzalo84 18:49, 17 July 2006 (UTC)

Merge is done -- Ipstenu (talk|contribs) 17:43, 21 July 2006 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Wolverine30.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Wolverine30.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Own Page[edit]

Gorgon the Inhuman and the Wolverine foe have been split off to have their own pages to avoid confusion. The links have also been corrected.

Asgardian (talk) 07:15, 26 February 2008 (UTC)

Further to this, as the Inhumans almost always appear together, have grouped references for sake of ease, as last version of article read like a badly written laundry list. One image is also all that is necessary for such small articles. I can always try and find another clear shot with no word balloons. Also, the OHOTMU is not a recognised source and should not be quoted if possible.
Asgardian (talk) 01:18, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

Hell[edit]

I have no problem with the article as it is now, except for the seeming exclusion of Gorgon travelling to Hell with Karnak, Daredevil and others...while searching for Medusa's son. I feel this is VERY noteable, especially since it's mentioned he defies Inhuman society and his own king to help the kid be born. Lots42 (talk) 19:53, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

WikiProject Comics B-Class Assesment required[edit]

This article needs the B-Class checklist filled in to remain a B-Class article for the Comics WikiProject. If the checklist is not filled in by 7th August this article will be re-assessed as C-Class. The checklist should be filled out referencing the guidance given at Wikipedia:Version 1.0 Editorial Team/Assessment/B-Class criteria. For further details please contact the Comics WikiProject.

Image copyright problem with Image:MTIO-72.gif[edit]

The image Image:MTIO-72.gif is used in this article under a claim of fair use, but it does not have an adequate explanation for why it meets the requirements for such images when used here. In particular, for each page the image is used on, it must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for the use in this article.
  • That this article is linked to from the image description page.

This is an automated notice by FairuseBot. For assistance on the image use policy, see Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. --11:06, 19 September 2008 (UTC)

The pic[edit]

Surely there is a better pic available for the Inhuman Gorgon. Lots42 (talk) 23:27, 4 March 2009 (UTC)

I was just thinking the same, there must be better ones than that and it is currently failing the Comics Project image guidelines. (Emperor (talk) 22:57, 20 September 2009 (UTC))

Fictional character biography needs to be expanded[edit]

Gorgon's Fictional Character Biography is way too short and does not cover the character's whole publication date, it should be expanded. Also the publication history is also way too short and needs to be expanded.--Paleface Jack (talk) 01:54, 16 June 2014 (UTC)

Gorgon Petragon[edit]

Corrected his full name "I am Gorgon Petragon! I have crushed armies and Gods! I have devoted my entire life to honing the warrior's craft. I have sacrificed everything fighting for my people's future! My loves ---My children --- My body! And for what, for what?! Because I have to believe in something greater than myself." from All-New Inhumans Vol 1 #4 --73.165.134.189 (talk) 12:20, 9 March 2016 (UTC)
