Apocalypse (Marvel)(Age of Apocalypse)
Real Name: En Sabah Nur
Search for 'Apocalypse (Marvel)(Age of Apocalypse)' on Amazon

When Professor X's son Legion traveled back in time to kill Magneto before he would become a supervillain, he instead accidentally killed his own father.

This resulted in an alternate timeline in which Magneto, not Professor X, founded the X-Men, and in which Jean Grey never became the Phoenix. In this timeline, the Age of Apocalypse, Apocalypse arose ten years before he was awoken by Cable and set out to conquer most of North America with the aid of thousands of mutants at his command. He succeeded and set up widespread human concentration camps in his conquered areas, with genetic experiments headed by his four horsemen, Sugar Man and the Dark Beast, torturing millions to death in the process. His global ambitions destabilise the world to the brink of destruction. Meanwhile, the disturbance of the timeline leads to a 'crystallization wave' of the M'Kraan Crystal that is heading toward Earth...

However, Apocalypse's regime lasts only twenty years. While the empire has the power to destroy the world, it is slowly falling apart. Apocalypse has to deal with the X-Men as well as the Human High Council, while his Horsemen are each involved in their personal plots: Sinister secretly plans on destroying Apocalypse while Mikhail Rasputin has disappeared in order to establish his own personal domain; and while remaining loyal, Holocaust and Abyss are involved in their personal struggles.

In the end, when it seems Apocalypse will remain victorious, he suffers an attack from all X-Men and their allies and ends up ultimately ripped apart and killed by Magneto himself.
