    Gib is a child of the original Gibborim. He and his brothers were set to inherit an Earth full of souls ready to be consumed, but The Runaways stopped their parents from performing the ritual. This left them trapped in Limbo for quite sometime.

    Major Story Arcs


    When they finally escaped, the trio confronted The Runaways and tried to force them to perform the ritual their parents' never finished. The Runaways bought themselves some time, but the new generation of Gibborim were unwilling to leave them unsupervised. Thus, Gib stayed at the hostel to watch over them.

    Gib was a silent observer. He watched as the team showed compassion and empathy for each other and even himself. He was convinced that humanity was worth saving and turned on his brothers. He was welcomed into the Runaways, but he continued to hunger.

    The team attempts multiple ways to feed him, but ultimately, it was Old Lace and Rufus who figured it out. They started bring home squirrels they were catching and killing them in front of Gib so that he might restore himself. Gib remained weak, but it was better than nothing. It wasn't until Doc Justice was killed by Old Lace for betraying the team that Gib was fed something even remotely satisfying.
