Gideon appears in 185 issues.
Gideon is one of the less-established memebrs of the Externals, but is known that before he discovered his immortality he was a member of the Spanish armada in 1492. He amassed vast amounts of wealth and joined the other High Lords: Saul, Absalom, Nicodemus and Burke, playing power games with his fellow male immortals by manipulating the world from behind-the-scenes. Gideon was killed by his fellow External, Selene, when she drained him of his life force, and so despite the fact that he was one of the most powerful Externals even he could not withstand an energy vampire. Of the Externals he represented the concept of opportunity.
AoA Member of the Horsemen of the Apocalypse
Horsemen of Apocalypse are Mutants who either willingly or are forced to serve Apocalypse. They consist of Death, War, Famine, and Pestilence. They are genetically enhanced or given new abilities.
Gideon had the ability to mimic the abilities of nearby persons, and since he was an External, he was granted with limited immortality, only ended if he was decapitated, or a very damaging Virus(Legacy Virus), and obviously by having his life force drained.
