Exodus born Bennet du Paris, is a very powerful Inhuman whose loyalties were clouded due to years of belief in the origins of the Inhumans however after the revelation of the truth he became one of the Brotherhoods most powerful members.
His connection to the terrorist organization HYDRA was that at that time of his Terrigenesis, he was the most recently awakened God of their worship, and therefore the reason why they were based in Europe for the longest time.
Bennet du Paris was a dormant Inhuman living in 12th century Europe. One day he was abducted by a group of Inhuman scientists from Attilan who thought they could rid the outer Inhumans of their human DNA which suppresses the full range of their powers. After the procedure Bennet's potential amplified exponentially and after exposure to terrigen mist became as powerful as the High Evolutionary is today. After receiving his powers he was chosen by a devious member of the Inhuman royal family to be from then on known as Exodus the journeyman bridging the chasm between an ancient past and a distant, inevitable future. Exodus would then go on to secretly serve the will of the Inhumans for centuries until his previous master the Unspoken was removed from the throne by Black Bolt and the rest of his family. Black Bolt then locked Exodus away because of his threat towards the rest of the world.
After the revelation of Attilan to humanity Maximus fearing humanity would attack the Inhumans freed Exodus so that he may assure Inhuman survival as well as ascension. Exodus then fled Attilan and began his mission. During the course of his quest he discovered the Artificial Inhumans as well as their leader the High Evolutionary. Viewing them as a disgrace to the name Inhuman Exodus planned to destroy them all. As Exodus began his approach the High Evolutionary called out to two of his creations the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver to assist him in the defeat of Exodus. The High Evolutionary and Magneto both fought Exodus in the mountains of Wundagore eventually the Avengers arrived and together albeit temporarily they fought alongside the Brotherhood to defeat Exodus.
When Exodus was in a weak enough state the High Evolutionary called upon the Scarlet Witch, Charles Xavier and Emma Frost to combine their powers of telepathy and control Exodus. The three telepathics managed to show Exodus the truth of his claims seeing as the Inhumans themselves are not natural and therefore the Artificial Inhumans are but a extension of that. Exodus was then left in a state of regret and confusion because he was always told that the Inhumans came into existence naturally and he thought of the Artificial Inhumans as cheap knock offs. Exodus then saw fit to make amends for his actions, so he vowed to serve the Brotherhood for their goal of joint Inhuman ascension and became a loyal and powerful lieutenant and disciple to both the master of magnetism and the master of evolution.
