In the harsh, unforgiving desert of ancient Egypt, ruled by Rama-Tut, a band of nomadic raiders found an infant, gray-skinned and freakish in appearance, abandoned by the settlers of Akkaba. The nomads took the child for their own, giving him the name En Sabah Nur, "The First One," and teaching him to be "strong" in order to survive the desert as a child. This idea, that "the strong will survive," would shape Apocalypse's actions throughout time.

When En Sabah Nur was an adult, he was captured with his nomadic clan and forced into slave labor under the Grand Vizier Ozymandias. He quickly became a rebel and was even killed by agents of Ozymandias, only to be revived soon after due to his mutant powers. Believing himself "strong" and blessed, En Sabah Nur discovered Rama Tut's technology underneath Egypt, and soon destroyed the Egyptian rulers around him and twisted Ozymandias into the being he is today.

Apparently, Apocalypse would use Rama Tut's technology to "regenerate" for long periods of time, becoming more and more powerful when awakening. He was also known to have traveled around the world during these ancient years, appearing to various primitive cultures as their death god. At some point, when traveling through Mongolia, Apocalypse encountered a spaceship abandoned by the planet-judging aliens, the Celestials. His travels then became fueled by a single-minded purpose-- to find the key that would unlock the secrets to this alien technology. He found it in the person of Nathan Summers, then wandering various eras as the Traveler. The two fought, and although Apocalypse was nearly killed, he was saved by Ozymandias and taken to the Celestial ship. Apocalypse's blood had become infected with Summers' techno-organic virus during the battle, and the infection allowed Apocalypse to not only transform into an even more powerful being, but to also interface with the Celestial ship, claiming it as his own.

X-Men Vs. Street Fighter



Marvel Super Heroes Vs. Street Fighter


Page Updated:  July 1st, 2022

Apocalypse made THE perfect boss for X-Men VS Street Fighter. Capcom knew what would make Marvel fans happy back in the day. At the time of his debut, Apocalypse was was no doubt the biggest fighting game boss to date... and he was actually quite a challenge to fight against (unless you picked Chun-Li). lol.  His return in MSH VS SF was just as good (even though they didn't update him much), and he was just as fun to beat up on. He's also quite fun to use if you know the code that allows you to play as him.

Apocalypse was always a cool-looking design... especially being one of the biggest, baddest villains of the Marvel world. But then there's Galactus... lol. So anyway, I'm not too keen on Apocalypse's 2015 Hollywood debut as far as looks go. Hopefully, he won't turn out to be too much of a weak, pathetic movie villain like 95% of Hollywood villains. -__- He looks a bit too much like a skinny Shinnok in the movie. Damn you Hollywood directors. Why can't you just stick to the original designs?
