Little is known about the early life of Bennet du Paris other than the fact that he was alive in the 12th Century and had encountered the Avenger known as the Black Knight, who inhabited the body of his ancestor Eobard Garrington during that period. On one of the Crusades, Bennet gave in to his lust for power and was trapped in one of Apocalypse's strongholds in the Swiss Alps.
Over the course of time, his latent mutant powers were awakened and enhanced until he was liberated by Magneto in the 20th Century and was brought to Magneto's base on Avalon.
As Magneto's lieutenant in the Acolytes, Exodus replaced Fabian Cortez, who had betrayed Magneto. Exodus encountered numerous mutants and attempted to recruit them as Acolytes for Avalon, with some margin of success.
When Professor Charles Xavier wiped Magneto's mind clean in an attack by the X-Men on Avalon, Exodus took command of the Acolytes. Soon after, Fabian Cortez resurfaced in Genosha, where he had taken Magneto's granddaughter Luna hostage. Exodus encountered and defeated Cortez in the sewers underneath Hammer Bay, the capital city of Genosha.
After the Genosha affair, the Acolytes found and retrieved a cocoon made of ice from orbit around Earth. The cocoon was found to contain the mutant Holocaust, who had traveled to this reality from the Age of Apocalypse. Exodus and Holocaust battled, resulting in the destruction of Avalon and the scattering of the remaining Acolytes.
Exodus soon reappeared to track down both Cable and the mutant known as X-Man. Cable and X-Man defeated Exodus, and trapped him in a rapidly closing crevasse.
However, Exodus somehow survived and later came into conflict with the High Evolutionary, who occupied Wundagore Mountain where Magneto's children were born, and usurped control of the citadel there. Exodus and his Acolytes was ousted by the combined forces of the Heroes for Hire, Quicksilver, and the Knights of Wundagore, and he was buried once again inside a mountain.
Exodus later appeared once more in Genosha, disguised as Magneto, and sought to bring peace to the tiny island nation by using his psionic powers, boosted by technological enhancements provided by the captured Forge, to spread his controlling influence. After his charade was revealed by the X-Men, Exodus revealed he was attempting to recant on his bigoted beliefs for the sake of all humanity, using Genosha as his first act of penance. However, without his controlling influence the island soon erupted once more into civil war and Exodus was left to despair.
Exodus subsequently attempted to ensure the end of human tyranny as the leader of the new version of the Brotherhood of Mutants. His team attempted to destroy the Xavier Institute but most of them, including Exodus, were sucked into Shen Xorn's void in the end of the battle. The Brotherhood of Mutants ended up in Mojoworld, where they sold Nocturne and Juggernaut to Mojo for cash and such. Because three of the characters to make the trip(Juggernaut, Mammomax, and Nocturne) have returned, it's possible that Exodus is back, too.
In the future of the X-Men 2099, Exodus also encountered the young group of mutants known as X-Nation, killing Clarion as well as several of the villainous Wild Boyz.
Exodus is a mutant who possesses vast psionic powers. He has shown the ability to telekinetically lift at least 10 tons of weight, incredible telepathic powers, and the ability to project damaging psionic blasts. Exodus can also teleport as well as drain anothers' energy to replenish his own.

Keep in mind this is a weaken Exodus ( I do not remember the exact details, but there is a difference between this version, and Bloodties version of Exodus). (please log in to view the image)
Know Exodus shows he is not just all brawn and no brain.
Remember when Cable was TP’ed by Exodus?
Well Exodus did that, to gain information from Cable.
Because Cable is from the future, he will use his memories, along with future technology to make a perfected Cerebro (out of scratch thanks to ship XD).
Gender: Male Location: Hiding from The Doctor, shhhh.....
To definitively answer this question, we'd need the issue in question. But I'm guessing the initial switch to the red skin look was from Apocalypse. As for him getting progressively redder, it's either his powers increasing, a retcon, or just different artists.
Exodus rocks. His early costume (don't like his current one) was one of the better designs in Marvel.
__________________ Wanted: New sig. Something crazy, zany, and slightly evil. Will give sig credit to whoever's I sport.
Exodus blocks attacks from Storm, The Black Knight and Cyclops while similtaneously maintaining a TK shield around himself, levitating Jean Grey, Quicksilver, Crystal and The Scarlet Witch in status and crushing the island of Genosha with another TK shield while telepathically inducing hate into the people of Genosha. *Note- See Lucid Lui's scans above for more information on the Bloodties battle
Exodus deals with Pyro. Stops a missile telekinetically. Supresses the Hulks change telepathically. A Riot inside his building plus an explosion causes him to lose his concentration allowing the banner to become the Hulk. Exodus Blasts the Hulk. And him Pyro and the Governer aren't their when the Hulk gets up. They must have teleported out of there. Note*- Lucid will expand on this later on
