Little was known about the mutant known only as Absalom. During the 1800's, he lived as a petty thief in Midwest America. His mutant powers and External nature manifested themselves when he was hanged for the murder of Pinkerton Agent Caleb Hammer, whom he had shot in the back after Hammer refused to draw against him. His subsequent activities, including how he joined the other Externals, remain unrevealed. Absalom joined the Externals in most of their gatherings in recent years.

He contracted the Legacy Virus.[1] Before he could succumb to the disease, the Externals were betrayed by one of their own, Selene. Absolom died when Selene absorbed his life force.[2]

Powers and AbilitiesEdit


  • Immortal: His aging process was greatly retarded and he could apparently regenerate injured or missing cells from even near-fatal injuries.
  • Rapid Healing: Ability to endure injuries (within unknown limits) without lasting harm or even feeling pain such as knife wounds.
  • Bone Spikes: Absolom's mutant physiology allowed him to remold his skeletal structure in order to extend razor sharp spikes of bone through his skin. He could then manipulate these spikes to stretch to incredible lengths.
