History

Quote1 I've never felt such anguish and compassion all in one place... how do you go on day after day? Quote2
-- Mantis

The Insectivorids hail from the planet Kaliklak, which was integrated into the Shi'ar Empire during its primitive days. The Insectivorid named Mantis was born thousands of years after this, and was destined to work as a servant for the Royal Family. When she reached maturity, she became the assistant to Majestor J'Son.

Eventually, J'Son's son, Peter, was discovered and ushered into the Empire. Mantis was assigned to protect him and help make the transition easier. However, Peter helped Mantis realize how oppressive the Empire, and specifically, J'Son, really was.

When the Guardians of the Galaxy came to liberate Star-Lord, Mantis made an in the moment decision to abandon her role at J'Son's side and go with them. She went on to find a new family with the Guardians, and finally felt like she'd found a purpose to use her powers for; to Guard the Galaxy.

Trivia

  • Mantis is one of the few members of the Guardians of the Galaxy to genuinely understand Groot when he speaks.
  • At one point, she made an emotional connection with the Black Order member Nebula and became overwhelmed with the conflicting emotions, the good inside her that longed to get out, but was stifled by her oppressive upbringing and dedication to Thanos. Ever since then, Mantis has tried to get through to her, but to no avail.
