Apocalypse shares a similar origin to his Prime Universe counterpart, where was born approximately 5,000 years ago in Ancient Egypt.[1] In more recent times, he met Magneto after a group of his Mutants were killed by Sentinels and proposed an alliance. Conflict soon arose between Magneto and Apocalpyse however. Apocalypse disapproved of Magneto's shows of mercy towards humanity and those Apocalypse considered weak and unworthy. The two fought, with Magneto emerging as the victor and undisputed leader of the mutant resistance. After a Sentinel attack on their home base, Magneto declared war on humanity.[2] Apocalypse would continue to serve him loyally, freeing a number of mutants from the camps in exchange for control of Northern Africa.[3]

Later, Magnus asked him to assassinate the Black Panther, who was considered a threat for becoming close to Storm. Apocalypse, Sabretooth, Iceman, Angel, and Nightcrawler were surprised to see Prince Namor and Emperor Sunfire assisting the Black Panther and Storm. During their battle, Apocalypse went looking for the Panther, only to find a waiting Black Bolt. Apocalypse was believed to have been destroyed by Black Bolt's whisper.[3]


Apocalypse is a mutant with the ability to alter his atomic structure. He does not seem to need sustenance of any kind and can recover from devastating physical injuries that would kill most humans and mutants. Apocalypse possesses superhuman strength and can lift/press close to 20 tons, though he can draw mass and energy from other sources to enhance his strength to unknown limits.
