"X-Men: Apocalypse" Updates

Sneak Peek the first page from Bryan Singer's new treatment of "X-Men: Apocalypse", a continuation of the 'mutant' events in the Montreal-lensed feature "X-Men: Days Of Future Past", to date the highest grossing movie of 2014, with over $700 million in worldwide box office earnings:

'Apocalypse' is an ancient mutant appearing in Marvel Comics, debuting in "X-Factor" #5 (May 1986).

The character was created by writer Louise Simonson and "Thor" illustrator Walt Simonson.

'Apocalypse' has appeared in several "X-Men" comic books including spin-offs, limited series, Marvel merchandise, animated television series, toys, trading cards and games.

Apocalypse was born 5000 years ago in 'Akkaba', appearing throughout history, encouraging civilizations to worship him as a god from several ancient mythologies and testing their strength by manipulating them into fighting wars of conquest, claiming to have brought "growth, judgment, and destruction."

At some point, Apocalypse discovers advanced alien technology, which he uses to transform and enhance himself, entering states of suspended animation, while he waits for mutants to become more common.
