HistoryEdit

Garbha-Hsien was an immortal mutant who ruled for centuries in 1100 A.D. in the Ho-Lo Shan Mountains of Northern Mongolia, China. Some of Garbha-Hsien's power was derived from the Celestial's Ship, which crashed near his kingdom. However, fifty years after finding it, the Egyptian immortal, En Sabah Nur, learned of Garbha-Hsien and sought him out as another immortal. In a confrontation, En Sabah Nur slew all of Garbha-Hsien's guards. Garbha-Hsien then sought to humble his fellow 'forever-walker' by revealing the secret titanic vessel. Having had previous experience with futuristic technology, Nur attacked Garbha-Hsien and left the other immortal for dead. Not understanding how to kill an immortal, Garbha-Hsien survived and fled. Renaming himself, Saul, Garbha-Hsien apparently had twelve mortal children, and constructed giant booby-trapped tombs for each of them. Saul later joined up with other Externals and together they used their knowledge and power to play global power games. Although Saul was immortal, he was apparently not indestructible, because his life was entirely drained by fellow External Selene.

NotesEdit

  • In X-Force #37 he was named Garbha-Hsien by Apocalypse, but Saul not confirmed that it is his name. However in Gambit Vol 3 #1 was shown Garbha-Hsien's temple, and inside was his portrait. Garbha-Hsien in the portrait is very similar to Saul, so apparently it is his real name.
