History: (Night Thrasher: Four
Control#3 (fb) - BTS) - Eve was a robotic Life Model Decoy (LMD)
created by Gideon to act as one of Gideon's most trusted employees
within his corporation, Ophrah Industries.
(New Mutants I#98 (fb) - BTS) - Eve
was stationed within Da Costa International by Gideon, where she became
close to its head, Emmanuel Da Costa.
(New Mutants I#98) - Following a training session,
Gideon asked his assistant Adam what the agenda was for the day and if
Ophrah Industries had someone in place to deal with Emmanuel Da Costa.
Adam replied that they did and confirmed that Eve was in place to
handle Emmanuel Da Costa, prompting Gideon to have Adam let Eve know to
proceed as planned. That evening, Eve brought Emmanuel Da Costa his
coffee and Emmanuel thanked her. Eve then smiled and walked away, her
heels clicking on the floor, as Emmanuel drunk his poisoned coffee and
died of a seeming heart attack. Once Emmanuel fell to the ground dead,
Eve entered the doorway and viewed her handiwork.
(Night Thrasher: Four Control#3 (fb) - BTS) - Gideon
had Eve installed as the CEO of his company, Ophrah Industries, under
the alias of "Eve Magdalene" and even posed for a publicity photo with
Ophrah owner, Gideon. In that guise, Eve also became a board member on
the charitable Taylor Foundation.
(Night Thrasher: Four Control#3) - The vigilante
Night Thrasher (secretly Taylor Foundation head Dwayne Taylor) broke
into Eve's executive offices within the Ophrah Industries
Administrative Offices in Denver, Colorado in an attempt to investigate
Eve after learning she was a board member in his Taylor Foundation and
that she answered to Gideon, whom Night Thrasher had encountered before
with the New Warriors. Finding it odd that Eve's office housed no paper
files or even a computer, Night Thrasher soon picked up the audio humm
of a larger hard drive and left Eve's office to check it out, soon
bypassing Ophrah's security systems to find an inert Eve wired into
large computer banks. Realizing that "Eve Magdalene" was an actually an
LMD created by Gideon, Night Thrasher determined that Eve must be
either charging or upgrading and took that time to look over the data
being fed into Eve before leaving a computer virus "time-bomb" inside
Ophrah Industries' computer systems. When security appeared on the
scene, Night Thrasher fled as security guards Dan and Rob arrived to
see Eve hooked up to computers and promptly claimed they saw nothing.
Later, Dwayne Taylor visited Ophrah Industries to see Ophrah's Evelyn
Cranford replace Eve as a shareholders meeting between Ophrah and the
Genetech firm, thinking to himself that Eve must have been out of
commission due to his computer virus.
(Cable III#152 (fb) - BTS) - At some
point, Eve met Cable. Following an attempt on Gideon's life by the
long-lived mutant Selene, most of Gideon's Ophrah Industries was
dissolved and Eve was tasked with watching over the nearly-dead Gideon,
now surviving within a stasis tube. No longer requiring a human-like
body while in seclusion, Eve's consciousness was projected into a
robotic vessel and she watched over the last remaining Ophrah
Industries building in the Black Canyon of the Gunnison, Colorado.
Eventually, a future incarnation of Gideon from thousands of years in
the future traveled into the past of Earth-616 and took up residence
within the Ophrah Industries building as well.
(Cable III#152) - When a time-traveling future
incarnation of Cable and his assembled team of allies arrived at the
Ophrah Industries building to investigate Gideon's potential
involvement in the death of other Externals, Eve greeted Cable in her
robotic body and allowed Cable and his allies to view the decrepid
Gideon in his stasis tube in an effort to prove to Cable that Gideon
had no involvement with the Externals. Cable's ally X-23 quickly
noticed tubes housing several captive telepaths and Eve assured her
that the telepaths had volunteered to assist Gideon in exchange for
great monetary compensation. Once inside Gideon's room, Eve explained
that Gideon had not moved from that room since Selene's earlier attempt
on his life and that no one had entered the Ophrah Industries building
since. Eve then revealed that she had allowed Cable and his allies to
enter Ophrah in an effort to cooperate, commenting that Ophrah had
nothing to hide. When Cable opted to look around, Eve attempted to talk
him out of it, claiming that she had cooperated and that Ophrah housed
numerous trade secrets that would conflict with the interests of
Ophrah's investors. Cable questioned what investors since Ophrah had
been largely dormant for years but Eve repeated that they were secret
and attempted to usher the heroes away until Cable touched something
that lowered Gideon's stasis tube into a lower level of the building.
Eve followed the heroes as they were confronted by the cybernetic Adam,
who demanded the heroes leave or perish. Before Adam could attack, much
to Eve's dismay, Gideon (actually the future Earth-18352 counterpart, who
had spent thousands of years traveling his desolate with his own Eve
counterpart) appeared alive and ordered Cable and his allies to leave.
As Eve watched, Gideon soon unleashed some of his captive telepaths
against the heroes but when Adam was sliced apart by X-23, Eve ran,
catching Adam's severed head mid-fall.
(Cable III#153) - While Earth-18352's Gideon unleashed
futuristic mutates against Cable and his allies, Eve visited Earth-616
Gideon's stasis tube and opened it, welcoming the gaunt and skeletal

BIG thanks to writer Ed Brisson for confirming that Eve-18352 revived Gideon-18352 circa the 5300s!!
Profile by Proto-Man.
Eve has no known connections to:
Eve of Earth-18352
Earth-18352's Eve was much like her Earth-616 counterpart. After releasing Gideon from his stasis tube in circa the 5300s, a world-traveling Eve encountered desert mutates alongside Gideon circa 5352 A.D. By 5361 A.D., Eve and Gideon were accompanied by the mutates and stumbled across an abandoned X-Mansion in Central Park. Once inside, Gideon ordered Eve to search for supplies while he stumbled into Cable's former cybernetic arm, using it to travel back to Earth-616's past.Eve could sense nearby lifeforms.
