Kulan Gath is a villainous magician and sorcerer in Earth's Hyborian Era. Kulan Gath had even achieved effective immortality by placing his life energy into a magical amulet hanging from a necklace!

The character's first appearance, in Conan the Barbarian #14 and #15. Despite not being owned by Marvel, he has fought several of Marvel's modern-day superheroes, and was particular made popular from his use in X-Men.
Kulan Gath was a sorcerer in Earth's Hyborian Era, the ancient time period in which Conan the Barbarian lived. At some point, he married the witch Vammatar in an alliance to obtain the power of the demon Shuma-Gorath. He had an apprentice named Razal Gulath, and was an enemy of the immortal vampire-like mutant named Selene. In his first appearance, he sought the power of the Melnibonéan sorceress Terhali, who had been exiled to Earth and placed in suspended animation; when Terhali awoke, she disintegrated Kulan Gath with a magical bolt of energy.

This proved to be only a setback for Kulan Gath, as he had achieved effective immortality by placing his life energy into a magical amulet. He eventually regained his body, allied with Vammatar, and fought Conan and Red Sonja. Kulan Gath and his bride were apparently destroyed when they attempted to control the demon Shuma-Gorath. Kulan Gath returned again in the miniseries Conan: The Flame and the Fiend, thanks to the efforts of his new wife, Armati, but he was decapitated by Conan. At some point, his body was restored, but his heart was cut out by Red Sonja; a silhouetted scene in Marvel Saga #1 suggests that this may have occurred with the assistance of Conan.
Actually, in the new serial of Red Sonja, the sorcerer is back, more powerful than ever: His hordes of demons are conquering the world, and Gath has even captured the goddess of the red ones!
