Shuma-Gorath, the mighty Marvel Supervillain drawn for the Game-Art-HQ Video Game Character Database


Shuma-Gorath is one bizarre creature that we still have to see in a big role in one of the Marvel movies, or even in any of the video games. Mortalshinobi who is a part of our community since we started in 2011 claimed this oddball for our Video Game Character DB Project in 2017 and wrote:

“Shuma-Gorath was one character I first discovered and learned about from the Marvel vs. games back in the 90’s and though I know his normal color now is green, I first got introduced to him through the purple variant, so that’s the one I chose to do. Shuma-Gorath is a fun twisty character and just great tentacle fun. so do enjoy!”
