Gort, also nicknamed Iron Man, is a humanoid police force robot that serves and protects his master Klaatu in the movie The Day the Earth Stood Still from 1951. After arriving to Earth with Klaatu, Gort vaporizes the guns of several soldiers without harming the soldiers by using his main, and only weapon: a laser beam concealed in his facial visor powerful enough to destroy the entire Earth. For much of the movie, Gort stands still guarding their spaceship they arrived in and never speaks; he only follows commands from Klaatu or acts to protect his master. The Day the Earth Stood Still was remade in 2008 and the character of Gort was altered almost completely from the original.

Gort, portrayed by Lock Martin in The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951), is 8 foot (2.4 m) tall.
