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. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.

    I am not an X-Men comic book reader nor did I watch the 90’s Fox cartoons, but I did catch them once in a while during Spiderman and his Amazing Friends cartoon run during the 80’s. In spite of my limited knowledge of the source material I enjoyed the movie from the introduction of the movie by the actress that plays Storm to the end credits. I want to see more of these characters. Every single character displayed their power and I ate it up. I appreciate that the movie took itself seriously and didn’t joke around with what was at stake. There is a time and place for all things.
