I have wondered this. It seems that in the GRIMDARKNESSOFFORTYKAY there seems to be mostly mentions of the 4 chaos gods. But what of gork and mork? How powerful are they? I seem to remember reading they are more powerful than all of the chaos gods but are busy fighting each other.
“When I give food to the poor, they call me a saint. When I ask why the poor have no food, they call me a Communist.”
in the ork codex it says Gork is so powerful he laughs off the other gods attacks before clubbing them, while Mork the kunnin' one waits until they arent looking before stabbing them. It also says that they are such powerful entities that they can never be truly destroyed.
They're a metaphor for the Ork race as a whole. If they stopped fighting each other, they would overrun the galaxy.
In terms of strength, Warhammer deities (and Orks in general) run on "clap your hands if you believe" power, so Gork and Mork are exactly as powerful as the Ork race thinks they are. They're a creation/reflection of their entire race's latent psychic power. When Gork and Mork work "miracles," it's just the Orks doing stuff with their subconscious psychic powers and blaming in on their gods.
On which of them is cunningly brutal and which brutally cunning - we will never know.

It seems like Gork responds a lot more to shamans than Mork does... looking at it again though... yeah, it's hard to tell. For years I've had it in my head that Gork was the cunning one, because of the goblin magic... but hes rather brutal in the orc magic... and Mork just seems lazy! Jerk is only in two spells! a 10+ spell for the Goblins and a 5+ spell for the orcs!
However, Lexicanum is against me. I guess I must have been tricked by the goblin magic! ^_^
Gork and Mork - Lexicanum
Gork is the facepuncher, Mork is the backstabber. I was wrong.
