Aqirian Politician


President Abdi was the president of the middle-eastern nation of Aqiria. His regime was seemingly marked by numerous infringements on human rights, being Anti-Woman, Anti-Gay[1] and Anti-Mutant.[2] It also seemed to have been a long existing standard in Aqiria, as his would-be assassin had apparently been prosecuted all his life for being homosexual.[1]

Visiting Britain, Abdi expressed an interest in creating his own group of government sanctioned superheroes, modeled after Britain's own MI-13. In return for relying on Britain's operations training and expertise in creating this group, the British Government in turn wanted to produce a favorable position in which to purchase oil from Aqiria.[2]

During a public parade through the area of Whitehall, an Aqiri national who had spent his life suffering at the hands of Abdi's regime attempted an assassination, only to be stopped by Pete Wisdom because of the machinations of David Haller. Berating his bodyguard Black Gold for allowing a mutant to save him, Abdi seemingly retired to his hotel just in time to find that his government had been overthrown in a bloodless coup who were deciding to take a more progressive world view based on the example set by Britain after David's plan went off unopposed.[1]

Spending the next three days along Black Gold, tracking David with the intention of killing him, his guard accidentally shot Gabrielle Haller instead of her son. In response, David vapourized both Abdi and his subordinate.[3]
