Apocalypse | Comics

Born and abandoned at birth, the freakish gray-skinned boy En Sabah Nur was found and taken by Baal, leader of a nomadic group called the Sandstormers with them. He was raised by them in the unforgiving desert with “Survival of the Fittest” philosophy and this idea had shaped his morals as he grew up to be the one he is today.

His entire clan was captured by the Grand Vizier Ozymandias and he ended up being killed for rebellion. It was the first time when his mutant power was discovered when he was revived by it. He forced the then ruling Egyptian Pharaoh Rama-Tut to retreat and turned Ozymandias as his slave in a stone-like form. Thus the new era of "The First One" has begun.

Over the century-wide period of time, he appeared in various civilizations, being worshiped by many cultures as Death-God, died and re-generated but he focused on conquering world. He got his hands on an abandoned spaceship of the Celestials and the key to unlock its technology becomes his obsession. He eventually finds it in time-traveling mutant Cable which follows to a fatal consequence for him. Nur resurfaced again in the modern century and was opposed by X-Factor and X-Men.

In time, he recruited Angel, Gambit and Wolverine as Horsemen of Death. Once he also abducted Hulk to be Horseman War. Namor, the Submariner has battled him on one occasion and following his choosing of "The Twelve" met his untimely demise. During "World War Hate" he manifested through Evan Sabahnur and fought The Avengers.
