Pure Evil Wiki

Always the same... And now all this. No more stones. No more spears. No more slings. No more swords. No more weapons! No more systems! NO MORE! No more superpowers... So much faith in their tools, in their machines. You can fire your arrows from the Tower of Babel... but you can never... strike.... GOD!!!
~ Apocalypse while launching the world's nuclear arsenal into space.
My child, why do you enslave yourself?
~ Apocalypse to Storm.

En Sabah Nur, otherwise known as Apocalypse, is one of the overarching antagonists (alongside Sebastian Shaw) of the X-Men film series, serving as the overarching antagonist of the 2014 superhero film X-Men: Days of Future Past and the titular main antagonist of the 2016 superhero film X-Men: Apocalypse.

Apocalypse is the world's first and most powerful mutant, who was born prior to 3,600 B.C. in Ancient Egypt, where he was worshipped as a god. He possessed various mutant abilities that made him seemingly invincible. Apocalypse would always select four powerful mutants to serve him as his Four Horsemen. Upon awakening in the modern world in 1983, Apocalypse lived under the belief that mankind needed to be eradicated. Apocalypse recruited Storm, Psylocke, Archangel, and Magneto to serve as his Horsemen. His plot was ultimately foiled during the Battle in Cairo and he was killed by Jean.

He was portrayed by Oscar Isaac.
