Formerly a mutant NASA employee aboard space station; became "War" of the Four Horsemen of Apocalypse.
On the NASA satellite he lived on, Gazer was quite lonely. Perhaps this combined with radiation sickness is what led to him speaking to a "Phantom Torso," imagining it was sentient. He imagined that the Phantom Torso spoke back to him, frequently advising him to call NASA and ask them if he could return to Earth. Gazer spoke to the "Phantom Torso" in X-Men vol. 2 #s 178 and 180.
