Tomi Shishido said his first words when he was two weeks old. He was able to walk at three months old, and could read and write by his first birthday. By the time he had reached the age of four, he had established himself as one of the five greatest painters in Japan. By his sixth birthday, he had composed his first opera and attempted suicide for the second time. Around thirteen, Tomi created a mathematical formula that proved, without a doubt, the existence of God.
When Tomi discovered he could turn people into stone by looking at them, he was dubbed 'the Gorgon' by the Japanese media. For four years, Gorgon ran a death cult called 'The Dawn of the White Light', and subjected Japan to a series of terrorist attacks. At 18 years old, Gorgon killed all of his friends and family and defeated the Hand's guards to prove to the Hand that he was worthy of their membership. He killed himself to fully initiate himself.
Splitting from the Hand, Gorgon helped Baron Striker to unite the Hand, Hydra and AIM. Together, they created a plan to kill several of America's major super heroes and resurrect them under Hydra control. Gorgon killed the first mutant, Wolverine, and supervised the killings of various other minor villains. Gorgon also drew Elektra into a trap and killed her for the Hand, who resurrected her as a weapon.
When Wolverine was captured by S.H.I.E.L.D. and returned to his normal state of mind, Gorgon took over Hydra as the Supreme Hydra. His plans to destroy the world with the machines Wolverine had stolen from Reed Richards were stopped when Elektra and Wolverine destroyed the Hand and large sections of Hydra. Gorgon himself was attacked by the two heroes. Defeating Elektra easily and impaling Logan, Gorgon went to kill the crippled head of S.H.I.E.L.D., Nick Fury. He was stopped by Wolverine, who he again easily defeated. This time, however, Gorgon tried to turn Wolverine to stone. When he took off his glasses, Wolverine unsheathed his claws. The reflection of his eyes caused the Gorgon to turn to stone. He was then killed by Logan.
