TNTM Theater Edition: X-Men Apocalypse

Jack and Troy from ZiaComics.com watched X-Men: Apocalypse and give you their review.

En Sabah Nur, aka Apocalypse, is an immortal. He is the first mutant in existence dating back to ancient Egypt. Apocalypse always chooses four henchmen mutants to be his “four horsemen”. He enhances these mutants already existing powers. His goal is to cleanse the earth and start anew with his chosen.

Apocalypse has been around so long because he can transfer his consciousness into other bodies. When he does this all his powers are transferred to the new body as well. He also gains any powers the new host body may have. He has accumulated many powers this way by selectively choosing mutants with powers he desires to be his new host body.

The movie begins with you witnessing Apocalypse during one of these transfers in ancient Egypt. The humans revolt and attempt to kill him, but only end up trapping him under a pyramid.

Fast forward to the 1980’s and a group of fanatics are praying at the pyramid and inadvertently awaken Apocalypse. When he walks around Egypt and sees what the world has become and how mutants are no longer in control of the world he decides to gather four horsemen and cleanse the world of humanity.

Apocalypse desires Professor X for his telekinetic ability to connect to everyone in the world at once. With this power he could rule the world with no resistance.

While taking Professor X, Apocalypse sends all nuclear weapons into space using Professor X’s telekinesis. Stryker tracks the origin of the telekinesis to the X-mansion. They incapacitate all the mutants and take some with them back to Alkali Lake (Department H, Weapon X Program).

Jean Grey, Scott Summers, and NightCrawler sneak along and end up releasing a test subject. This test subject just happens to be Wolverine. He works his way through the base and you last see him escaping into the Canadian winterland.

The X-men come to Professor X’s rescue. It takes all of them along with Jean Grey unleashing her dark powers to defeat him.

This is a Marvel movie so there is an after credits scene. You see someone from Essex Corp collect the Weapon X DNA sample from the Alkali Lake base. If you are familiar with Marvel Comics you should recognize the name. Nathan Essex is Mr. Sinister who is a known connection to Apocalypse.
