Mantis is one of the seven Guardians of the Galaxy[2]. She is the (former) foster daughter and pet of Ego the Living Planet[3] and Peter Quill's adoptive sister[3] (of sorts).

Background Edit

Abilities Edit

  • Empathy: Mantis has the ability to tell what's in a person's heart and feeling just by touching them on the wrist. She could tell that Peter Quill had an attraction to Gamora , feeling "sexual love" towards her. Also, when Gamora grabbed onto Mantis' neck, the girl put her hands around Gamora's wrist and realized that she was scared for her own family. She used the ability again when she sees into Drax's mind and sees his own wife and daughter being killed and cries, feeling his pain.
  • Pathokinesis
  • Sleep Inducement
  • Enhanced Durability:

Personality Edit

Due to being raised on Ego's Planet, Mantis hardly had any social interactions with people from the outside world. However, after getting to know Drax and the other Guardians of the Galaxy, she came to know how to interact with other people. Mantis is known for having empathetic abilities, and understands many people For one, she knew immediately that Peter had feelings for Gamora, and also knew Gamora was scared for Peter's safety.

According to Drax, Mantis, in a way was like his daughter, and noticed she had so much innocence within her. She holds a passive demeanour, always bowing her head in Ego's presence and being hesitant to attack anyone.

Mantis does not understand what a "practical joke" is.
