The Rise of X has begun and after a long slumber, he’s back stronger than ever. Claim your destiny, dominate and become Champion with Apocalypse as he makes his way into The Battlerealm in Kabam’s MARVEL Contest of Champions. Here is a quick bio of the character’s in-game story:
Thousands of years ago in ancient Aqaba, the first living being on Earth to express the mutant X-gene was born, given the name “En Sabah Nur” or “The First One”. As he traveled the Earth, En Sabah Nur deemed himself “Apocalypse” convincing ancient civilizations that he was a deity and manipulating them into fighting wars which he justified as stimulating growth, judgment, and destruction. After conquesting the Earth for many millennia Apocalypse used Celestial technology to enter a period of suspended animation for many centuries, awakening in the current age and deciding the Earth is ready for further examination.
