The Marvel universe is home to a multitude of characters, consisting of both men and women, who are either human by nature, individuals who are mutated from birth or by accident, yet still possess super-human abilities, robotic/ mechanical creations, or simply alien beings from other worlds. These characters make up a long list of heroes and an even longer list of villains; all of whom exist primarily in their own individual pockets within the aforementioned universe. One of the main and most popular pockets of the Marvel universe happens to be the one which deals with the existence of mutants, individuals born with a gene that gives them powers, and focuses primarily on the heroic mutant group known as the X-Men who often battle against more villainous mutants.
Of all the enemies the X-Men have faced, possibly their most dangerous adversary has been the mutant known as Apocalypse. Apocalypse, who was born in ancient Egypt, is quite possibly the first ever mutant to be born, and possesses incredible powers that are augmented by the advanced technology left behind by an alien race that he has at his disposal. This May will see the live-action debut of Apocalypse in the movie X-Men: Apocalypse, and to mark this occasion, it is fitting for people who are both fans of the comics and those who are not familiar with them, to get some more insight about this titular villain. Here is a list of 10 Things You Didn’t Know About X-Men’s Apocalypse.

1 Apocalypse Made The Hulk His Horseman
As mentioned earlier, Apocalypse is almost always accompanied by his four horsemen, a group of four individuals who he deems to be the most powerful; but as we all know however, not all of the most powerful beings in the Marvel universe are mutants. The Hulk is one such being, who was taken in by Apocalypse after fighting the X-Men in their mansion, and being named as the horseman of War. During his time as a horseman, Hulk was given weapons as well as a helmet which shielded his mind from the distracting spirit of his abusive father; he also went up against the X-Man Cable and fought the Juggernaut. Apocalypse was unable to hold onto Hulk for as long as he likely wanted to though, as the big green guy left Apocalypse’s side after injuring his friend Rick Jones.
