Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshiped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel's X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible.

While working at a steel plant (Ironic), Magneto is living a good, peaceful life fitting in for 8 years in Poland with his wife Magda and daughter Nina, both of whom are killed by police in the woods where he is confronted with a flyer of him in 1973 Washington DC. He states that he will go with them willing if they will leave his family alone. That didn't happen and the old Magneto was back. In the comics, however, this is the wrong timeline. Eric (Jewish) and Magda (Romini) meet inside a concentration camp and after escaping, marry and have a daughter Anya, not Nina. Anya was killed in a deliberate fire in her house and the mob would not let him save her. That's when Magneto's powers really get going. Magda, fled without either of them. This would make her significantly older than siblings, the Maximoff twins. In the last two new X-men movies, Peter (Quicksilver) is obviously older than her by at least 10 years older. See more »

Mutants: born with extraordinary abilities, and yet still, they are children stumbling in the dark, searching for guidance. A gift can often be a curse. Give someone wings, and they may fly too close to the sun. Give them the power of prophecy, and they may live in fear of the future. Give them the greatest gift of all, powers beyond imagination, and they may think they are meant to rule the world.

Screw Rotten Tomatoes this movie is as fantastic as it could get
Okay, this is already the fourth superhero film we have gotten so far this year. The fact that it's this good blows my mind, it's the sixth entry in the main X-Men series, and it might be the third best after X2 and Days of Future Past. Oscar Isaac gives an outstanding performance as the mutant menace: Apocalypse, he was the highlight of the film right next to Fassbender's Magneto (who never fails to deliver). In a year with pathetic and disappointing superhero film villains so far, Apocalypse gives us the layered and threatening performance we want from our villains. Evan Peters returns as Quicksilver once more to give us an amazing scene that tops the one from Days of Future Past. The newcomers are fantastic and exciting and we will certainly see them again in the future. They also finally got Cyclops right! Forget about Rotten Tomatoes and go see this film opening weekend, you won't regret!
