One of Apocalypse's four lieutenants in Ancient Egypt was Pestilence. During one of his master's consciousness transferal rituals in a pyramid, some Apocalypse worshipers attempted to entomb him alive by destroying the structure's supports. Pestilence protects Apocalypse's new body by shielding him from the falling debris. But he was soon crushed by a huge stone.[1]

Strength level

Pestilence possessed strength greater than that of any normal human, which allowed him to punch through and lift up falling debris to protect apocalypse.


However, he did not possess an equally high level of superhuman durability, which was demonstrated when he was crushed by the pyramid.
