|“||Gaz: Normally, you crying on the floor is hilarious, but come on.
Dib: It’s all my fault, Gaz! Why aren’t you saying ‘I told you so’?
Gaz: 'Cause making fun of you is no fun when you’re this sad. You’re my brother, man. I only torment you because I know you can handle it. I’ve done way worse than throwing you in a space prison. This is nothing, get up!
|~ Gaz telling Dib that she actually does care about him.|
Gazlene "Gaz" Membrane is the secondary antagonist of Invader Zim and the deuteragonist of the Netflix film Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus. She is the cynical, menacing younger sister of Dib Membrane. She is very smart like her father and can show love. She sometimes has a major role like her brother.
Gaz is best known for her rude, creepy, dark, cynical, and antisocial nature. Likewise, she is very indifferent as she could care less about his ravings of aliens and Bigfoot. She likes playing video games and eating pizza. Her relationship with her brother, Dib Membrane, is quite disorderly, as Gaz hates her brother with every fiber of her being, and will go out of her way to punish him if he crosses her. Despite her enmity for her brother, she sometimes helps him in his quests, but only when it benefits her. Eventually, In Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus, Gaz reveals that she's only tough on Dib because she knows he can take it and shows that she actually does care about her brother.
Gaz is 10-12 Earth years old (during seasons 1-2, including the unfinished episodes). In the show, Gaz wears a short black dress with striped gray sleeves, striped reddish leggings, black shoes, and a necklace in the shape of a skull. This led many fans to assume she was a Goth, but the executive producer, Jhonen Vasquez, did not view her as such, so he redesigned her appearance for the comic series in an attempt to change her impression with the fans. In the comic series, she now wears a teal t-shirt with a white pixelated video game design of what appears to be a rabbit skull on it, a black skirt, and thick gray boots, a look that is carried over into Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus.
When she was younger, she dressed similarly, but with the addition of a pink hair bow. Though her dress style is vaguely gothic in appearance, as we mentioned beforehand, the executive producer does not see her as such.
Role in Invader Zim
Gas is Dib Membrane's younger sister. Like her older brother, Dib, she knows Zim's real origin, but unlike him, she doesn't much care, on the grounds that he really isn't very good at the whole world-conquering thing. That, plus she seems to be something of a misanthrope herself. In one episode, she once had a very hard time deciding whether to destroy all life on Earth or not, when putting a can of beans in a super-powered microwave. Mostly Gaz sticks to her video games and snarks at the insanity around her.
Throughout the show, Gaz has been shown to have several strange powers. These include, but are not limited to: offscreen teleportation, levitation, and some sort of pyrokinesis. On more mundane levels, she has also demonstrated the ability to pilot Irken ships and perform some type of martial arts (described in the "Ten Minutes to Doom" transcript as "ninja moves").
Although Steve Russel has stated that Gaz possesses some level of supernatural power, Vasquez has gone on record stating that Gaz has no genuine powers of any sort, and that she is simply "someone you don't want to anger".
