apocalypse

as well So one of the funny things about the

apocalypse

and this is something I actually find quite interesting is that the apocalypse was never supposed to exist, it was a concept that had never been thought of before original x-factor writer Bob Layton had was dropped from the project after the first five issues and was replaced by Louis Simpson now Bob Layton's original intent was for the reckless owl villain to play the enigmatic benefactor type o The mastermind behind the alliance of evils plans to kidnap a mutant that could increase his abilities when Lewis Simpson appeared.

Louis Simpson stepped away from this a bit and wanted to create a new villain that had never been seen before, something that could actually be good. to embody the very essence of what it meant to be a villain in Marvel Comics, especially when you look at the base behind the x-factor group if you remember our discussion on the x-men, we talked about how when the x-men were originally founded, they weren't very popular, and as a result, Marvel canceled the series, then rebooted it in 1975 with the giant-sized X-Men issue one. Now, for the most part, all of the original founding members of the X-Men had been removed from the giant-sized x-men with the exception of Cyclops, but by 1986 Cyclops had left a giant-sized x-men and joined to the rest of the original x-men family in a group called x-factor now at this point the apocalypse was really kind of grim it really had an unknown figure unknown representation in the early days and what we want To say is that at the time issue number six about the apocalypse came out, he was betrayed as a guy who was covered in this weird kind of suit, we didn't know exactly what his physical form was, but in the next issue of x-factor he was depicted in all his glory as some kind of big blue guy with a gray scan and these lines across his face and a giant a around his waist now we don't know much about the apocalypse as far as it goes In addition to the x factor

comics

suffice to say he's kind of a mainstay as a villain in the x factor mates it's not until he gets his own backstory called the rise of the apocalypse where we learn the story behind the character and what he What we learn is that the apocalypse is for all intents and purposes the first mutant now there's some debate here there are characters that were around before the apocalypse.

More Interesting Facts About,

marvel comics en sabah nur apocalypse explained comics explained...

People like Selene, for example, but Selene is what's called an outsider. She has an inherent mutant power that makes her immortal, but she has to draw energy from different people. She is more or less like a vampire. debate over whether or not her immortality is the result of her merging with Heavenly technology or if she was something she had before it happened. She lived for several thousand years before coming into contact with celestial technology, but again we don't. i know if that is because he has a very long lifespan or because he is immortal at the moment, we are not really described what the stance is regarding his immortality, suffice to say that in his backstory we learned that the apocalypse was born I guess a group called the have' clinic and the fact that he had such an odd physical appearance had been seen as a bad omen and left to die among the har The Egyptian desert setting much later or soon after I guess that the clinic has been conquered or at least drained by a group called the Sandstorms and this group is run by a guy named Ball and Ball has this very hard, very Darwinian kind of view on life and this is a view that the apocalypse will carry on for the rest of its existence everyone's point of view is that only the strongest deserve to survive and around the age of 17 as a rite of passage the youngest members of the tribe participate in a kind of fighting to the death between other people in the tribe to eliminate weak links and maintain the strength of the tribe, so I guess the best way to think of sandstorm bugs is to think of them as a version of ancient Egypt . from the Spartans, so with that being said, Apocalypse really solidifies himself as a strong member of the sand shops and the ball is particularly fond of him, but we don't really find out why until much later as a time pro.

It progresses once apocalypse turns 17 he turns 17 so to speak he gets into some kind of three way fight to the death it's him and I think it's actually three other guys and they're really out to kill him and the reason. why only because they see it as a bad omen and had long tried to remove it but a rite of passage to battle to the death was really the only way they could do it as he was actually under the guardianship of ball B due to to the fact that the rite of passage was an event that the ball could not intervene in, this gave them the perfect opportunity to try and kill him, unfortunately due to the fact that apocalypse had mutant based powers even though they hadn't done. manifested however he proved to be a formidable foe and actually managed to kill all three boys now at this point what is also happening in the same timeline is a pharaoh named rama tut now this is the point where we mean by what is that ball had taken such a particular and acute interest and in apocalypse apocalypse and Baal make this kind of trip this kind of trip in a cave and Baal reveals several things to apocalypse, the first is that there was some kind of unofficial prophecy that he dictated the coming of the apocalypse not in the sense that a priest somewhere made this statement, but in the sense that Rama Todd was not actually a pharaoh and he is not Rama Todd, not a divine ruler of no guy, he's a time traveling mutant named Kang the Conqueror and he traveled back in time under the pretense of catching the apocalypse in the early days and turning him into some sort of individual who could grant him abilities or someone who could at least elevate him to a more prominent figure. because aside from his ability to travel through time using technological devices, burns conquer has no inherent mutant abilities like apocalypse Inbal travels through this particular cave Bal talks about how the rabbits Hut or staff, the Conqueror crashed into his time and these Sam Stormers nursed him back to health and as time went on they came to conquer him, he betrayed them and used the technology at his disposal to more or less conquer Egyptian society in time and place at the top of authority like pharaoh Baal and apocalypse also analyzed the external parts of the spaceship and Baal reveals to apocalypse that Apocalypse himself is represented in different aspects of the spaceship his futuristic facial features his futuristic physical form different things like that and so on the ball when it first encountered the apocalypse and even before it encountered the apocalypse had been in this search of this being that had been represented in the spaceship of the King the Conqueror as a kind of herald of the future the herald of the beginning of a new type of being on the planet Earth, so when Kang the Conqueror learns of his Vizier I think as Grand Vizier logos that apocalypse is really rising in rank and apocalypse is alive and well in this time period Kane the conqueror sin Ozymandias his general I think along with all the command forces it takes for this particular effort to destroy sandstorms and capture apocalypse alive. the plan fails to some extent, the Egyptians are ambushed by the sandstorm bugs, and as a result both Sam's swimmers and the Egyptian soldiers for the most part perish at this point.

Ozymandias is really the only surviving member as far as Cain the Conqueror knows him to be. He is also aware that apocalypse is a lot, but doesn't realize that Ball is alive along with Pocalypse. Eventually, Ball dies in the K from several different things from his injuries due to the cave-in as a result of the battle that took place outside and Apocalypse is left to fend for himself, he is left alone, Apocalypse actually swears this vendetta against Cain the Conqueror and swears that you don't know. No matter what it costs, it will inevitably destroy it. The apocalypse manages to make his way into the slave pens, so to speak, and he becomes some sort of slave working under the Pharaoh's rule, where he again begins to rise through the ranks and eventually attracts attention.
Ozymandias's sister Nefra is now very important regarding the development of Apocalypse, but she doesn't seem that often, in fact, she only appears twice when she first encounters Apocalypse. appearance and she perceives him as someone who is grotesque and his physical appearance due to this rejection apocalypse mutant abilities really begin to manifest with full power so he is endowed with enhanced strength enhanced agility the ability to take mass from a source extradimensional and again its a matter of debate here immortality with these particular abilities really wipes out the armies of Ozymandias and Cain the Conqueror came the conquering fleas and Ozymandias is forced to submit to the apocalypse apocalypse later visits Nephi when she is much older and embarrassed by the fact that she ages while he still keeps his youth and it's a bit this jab, you know who is who is physically attractive, now you know who looks better now, like one of those.
Cable We talked about how Cable goes back in time on several occasions and attempts to kill the Apocalypse well during Apocalypse's lifetime, he encounters a being called the Traveler and as we learned in our discussion of Cable, the Traveler was from made the wire. Cable attempts to destroy Apocalypse and is unsuccessful, but before that, Agent Apocalypse had come into contact with a celestial ship, but was unable to access the access that he couldn't. e to make contact with him due to the fact that his technology was far beyond what he could understand as apocalypse and the traveler who participates in the combat apocalypse is badly injured though he does not die, however he is infected with the virus technoorganic which cable was possessed in his body at the time so this is where things got a bit hairy we were talking about the life cycle of cable one cable of course had infected apocalypse with the technoorganic virus and due to that Apocalypse was infected with this techno-organic virus was able to fuse with heavenly technology and grant himself additional abilities which in turn allowed him to infect the wire with the techno-organic virus several thousand years in the future, but suffice it to say that once the apocalypse can manipulating celestial technology grants himself a multitude of powers and this is when you really see apocalypse move on from the realm of being a very powerful person Desirably and truly the only one of its kind in th Time to be on the level of an apocalypse demigod you can now imbue yourself with a multitude of abilities including telepathy telekinesis a very small measure of matter manipulation not in the sense of anyone who be able to do anything to an extreme degree his ability to manipulate matter is really relegated to himself he is able to alter his body on an atomic scale and i would say this is probably his most formidable ability because now he can assume pretty much any kind of form superhuman in addition to granting himself virtually any superhuman power, with the exception of time travel or extreme matter manipulation, from this point on apocalypse begins to really expand on his already existing attempts to purge the world of the week before After Apocalypse came into contact with celestial technology, he traveled the world. and he would present himself as a God, as it were, to various societies and pit those societies and wars against each other. to eliminate the weak people from that society and to maintain the existence of the strong ones once the apocalypse took over the heavenly technology, this effort really expanded tenfold and started not just pitting the individual societies against each other, sorry, and the conflict against each other, but it would pit individuals against other people who knew that in addition to being in conflict with themselves, for example, there was a man named Bennett Dube Harry from 12th century France and this guy eventually became the character known as Exodus when his The Apocalypse awakened the abilities of Leighton Union and Exodus proved to be an extremely formidable foe, plus Hoglip has also manipulated the genes of the likes of Nathaniel Essex or Mr.
Sinister and probably the most notable example Warren Worthington the 3rd o Archangel besides the apocalypse really boasts about this claim thathe has plans that have been around for thousands of years and are now being played out to completion, for example, he had talked about an event called the 12, which was a story that played out and also involved the scrolls, an alien race a shapeshifter that on multiple occasions managed to elude and I'm guessing maybe sabotage some of the X, the efforts of the x-men and various various other mutants, but suffice to say that the goal of the apocalypse with the twelve was to capture some of the most prominent members of the Marvel Universe and then channeling their abilities into the Living Tribunal and then in turn channeling those abilities into himself and granting himself omnipotence as time. progresses, we learned that the reason this is done is because when he first encountered celestial technology, he also encountered a celestial being and these are beings who are supposedly responsible for not only the creation of mankind, but also of the creation of mutants and the Celestials. they agreed to lend their technology to apocalypse for future payments and apocalypse is an attempt regarding the twelve to gain enough power to physically challenge the Celestials who effectively couldn't take him or destroy him if that was their intention, the plan ultimately fails and apocalypse is taken away for the apocalypse of the Celestials really is that he is extremely intelligent regarding his intellect because the only thing to keep in mind is that he has thousands and thousands of years of life experience plus pretty much every form of science and technology under his belt. , so there really is nothing that he doesn't know or know how to manipulate, he is also an extremely intelligent demagogue and a demagogue as a person who is capable of uniting people's beliefs or desires towards a single cause, most of which Sometimes people are considered manipulative when they are demagogues like Adolf.
Hitler was a very clever demagogue. He was able to rally an entire society towards a single cause. The apocalypse will often get involved in the stories on its own, but in terms of depicting a particular event, it will usually send out one of several teams, one of the most prominent or probably the most prominent group of minions it has is the four horsemen. and, of course, with him being formed with the name apocalypse the four ho Men are taken after the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse and are therefore war of famine, pestilence and death, pestilence and famine. war or death and so they get a little more attention Wolverine has played the character of death The Incredible Hulk has played the character of war and probably the most popular of the horsemen death was played by Warren Worthington the third as arc angel as time progresses i also see groups like the dark writers and the dark writers was a very early enchantment of the four horsemen or i guess the incarnation of the four horsemen a very early version if you will but suffice to say the apocalypse is a very intriguing character in

marvel

comics

he's a very powerful character and he shows up in some of these weird places he shows up in some of these weird places for example during the attack saga.
There were several instances where he simply showed up in the middle of Onslaught's storyline watching events unfold with who should The Watcher be and his argument was that he wasn't going to intervene because if the battle with Onslaught would reveal the week of the mutant-type mutant and those who were too weak to defeat onslaught didn't deserve to exist that look who the watcher actually came and said if onslaught wins he will destroy everything and that includes you, in which case apocalypse immediately changed his tune and helped defeat onslaught the onslaught of defeat, but it's very interesting when you look at his character because he's really an amalgamation of all the evil events that we've seen, we've seen a lot of characters that have been developed and created as a result of his actions, we've seen characters that have this unbridled hatred for the apocalypse and his life is focused on its destruction, for example mr. sinister or cable or even arc angel to some degree he really comes across as one of the most formidable members of the side of Marvel Comics villain Airy and whenever the x-men get involved in an effort to defeat the apocalypse it's really not it. an effort to destroy it one because it can't be destroyed and two because it's so powerful that it's really an effort to keep it at bay and at least at least circumvent whatever planet it's occurring on. that you really have to go back and recalculate things so with that being said I'm going to go and finish this video hope you enjoyed it if you did let me know and I'll find you later peace.
