Selene appears in 611 issues.
Selene is perhaps the most memorable member of the Externals as well as the oldest as her days date back to the Hyborian Age. Selene often went on her own way, manipulating others without the aid of the other Externals and took the title of Black Queen, fashioning a Hellfire Club that took on the theme of Hell.
Selene considers herself to be the last remaining External, yet Cannonball and Apocalypse still live, she claims that Apocalypse is not truly immortal and only uses Celestial technology and perhaps she sees Cannonball as being too young to be an External. Absolom, Crule, Gideon and Saul were all betrayed by Selene who drains them of their life force.
Of the Externals she represented corruption and of them all she is one of the only three that still live, at the present moment. Her current whereabouts are unknown.
Selene Gallio first became a member of prestigious Hellfire Club after the Dark Phoenix Saga when the Black Queen position became vacant in the Inner Circle. Selene quickly came in to fill in the void and as such has often been referred to as the Black Queen. Selene then tried to make her own Inner Circle after Shaw's apparent death but they turn on her and the attempt fails. However when Sebastian Shaw returns and restores order to the Hellfire Club, Selene is once again named the Black Queen of the Hellfire Club. After some time, the majority of senior members are no longer a part of the Club and so Selene takes control and makes an Inner Circle of her own. Its members include Blackheart, Daimon Hellstorm and Sunspot but her reign is short-lived. So Shaw once again takes over the Hellfire Club, this time as the Lord Imperial, and Selene remains the Black Queen even though she is kept trapped beneath the Club's Headquarters. Selene has since escaped and now is no longer affiliated with the Club, she was last seen with her groom, Wither.
Selene's handpicked mutants specialized for their ability and desire to kill. Inner Circle was tasked to help Selene to become a goddess of death.
