Apocalypse, one of the world's most powerful and first mutants ever, was worshiped as a God by early civilizations. After absorbing the power of other mutants, Apocalypse becomes invincible- and immortal. After awaking from thousands of years at rest, Apocalypse finds a world that leaves him feeling disillusioned. In order to make the world a place that he wants to live in, Apocalypse recruits other mutants to create a new world order by cleansing humanity. Professor X and Raven come together to lead a team of X-Men to stop Apocalypse's destruction of the earth.
