I admired Gamora in the film for her determination to do the right thing, despite having suffered much. Of all the gradations of "hero" among that ragtag group, she had the clearest moral compass. She was an amazing fighter, too. The hand-to-hand combat scene between Gamora and her "sister" Nebula was athletic and emotional and wonderful. She and Quill saved each other, so Gamora was anything but a victim character.
The movie was so much fun! I hope they bring all the characters back for future Marvel movies, but especially Gamora.
