The character evolved throughout his appearance in the comicbooks and as the creators behind this character Apocalypse is a true heavyweight that gave X-Factor the challenge way more powerful than Magneto himself.
20th Century Fox is putting the character into the spotlight in promoting the upcoming film and they’ve even produced a viral video that sort of mock documentary shown in the 1980s a la Ancient Aliens revealing his origins that you can watch below:
