Biography

The unofficial leader of a thieves network radiating out of Cairo. He's in his seventies now, but commands a wide network of criminals who work primarily in Africa, the Middle East and Southern Europe. He was Ororo's mentor back when she was an orphan in Cairo. El-Gibar actually has a kind of twisted code; he doesn't deal with the weapons or drug traffic at all, and has even made sure that some attempted explosive sales have been found out by the authorities. However, he is a criminal, focusing on fraud, extortion, smuggling and theft. Inside of Cairo underworld, there's very little that happens that he's not aware of. He has, in the past, had dealings with Amahl Farouk in the course of the latter's own network and with the assassin Gambit.
