Bryan Singer revealed the identities of The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse at Comic Con and I couldn’t be more pumped! Premiering in the pages of X-Factor, Apocalypse had manipulated 4 mutants disenfranchised with themselves and the world, into becoming his own personal guard of sorts. He gave each a title befitting their new station in life: War, Pestilence, Famine and Death.
In the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse movie, I’m happy to say the same will happen. We already know Angel will be making an appearance and eventually transformed into Death. The other 3 mutants to undergo the change will be Magneto, Psylocke and (my personal favorite) Storm!
The parts each will play have yet to be revealed but I’m betting money and one of my Pokemon that Magneto will be War, Psylocke will be Famine and Storm would be Pestilence; but only time will tell. With the exception of Angel, these horsemen are quite different from the quartet we saw debut in X-Factor, during the “Fall of the Mutants” storyline.
Fun Fact: In the cartoon X-Men Revolution, Apocalypse transformed Magneto, Storm, Mystique and Professor X into his horsemen. That 2 part series finale was AWESOME!!
