|Appeared in||Ghost Rider|
|Status||Banished to Hell|
Gressil was one of The Hidden, a trio of fallen angels who hid themselves in the elements escaping the wrath of God, and there await for Judgment Day. Gressil hid himself in the element of earth, gaining its characteristics and powers.
When Blackheart wants to make up a rebellion against his father Mephistopheles, the Hidden follow him in his crusade. They're found in a bar in the desert and summoned with the sacrifice of the lives of all the clients. Blackheart and the Hidden leave the desert and go to the place the contract of San Venganza was once buried, but find a railroad station in the place of the cemetery. The four demons are reached by the Ghost Rider, sent by Mephisto to stop them. Gressil puts up a fight with him, crushing him against a wall with a huge truck. Ghost Rider survives, and envelops Gressil with his chain, charged with Hellfire. The demon can't resist the mystical fire and had his soul burnt by the chain, leaving behind only his physical body, turning into stone
