Powers/Abilities: Apocalypse was an ancient mutant seen as the ultimate purveyor of evil and malevolence. Unlike his 616-counterpart the 2301-version only seemed to possess the power to change it's size and thus enhancing his physical abilities. In his giant form Apocalypse would name several of his attacks such as Armageddon kick and the Apocalypse beam. Apocalypse is able to absorb and integrate other machines, adding their power to his.

Eyes: White
Hair: None


(Marvel Mangaverse: Avengers Assemble - BTS) - Apocalypse gathered four mutants into his service as the Horsemen; Archangel, Sinister, Juggernaut and the White Queen (Frost).

(Marvel Mangaverse: Avengers Assemble (fb) - BTS) - Apocalypse fought the Avengers, almost beating the heroes who barely escaped with their lives.

(Marvel Mangaverse: Avengers Assemble) - Apocalypse sent one of his Phalanx spies to infiltrate the Avengers headquarters and eavesdrop on the heroes. He learned the Avengers stored their secret Iron Avengers machines inside a hidden storage, somewhere in the Billian peak of Guilin, China.

(Marvel Mangaverse: Avengers Assemble) - Wanting to use the machines to rid the world of humans, Apocalypse sent his Horsemen to China. But the Horsemen proved no match for the Avengers, forcing Apocalypse to step in. Growing to towering heights, he made his way over to China. When Apocalypse arrived at the Avengers storage facility he was somewhat disappointed when he saw the "little" Iron Avengers machines, and thought he had overestimated the Avengers. The Avengers fired all their machines at the giant Apocalypse but without any effect. They then decided to unleash their secret power and transformed the four separate machines into one giant mech fighter called the Ultimate Iron Man. The two towering giants went head to head, but Apocalypse's most powerful attack, his apocalypse beam seemed no match for the Ultimate Iron Man's avenging justice attack. The villain was defeated. The Avengers left him lying under the rubble of their storage facility to deal with the Hulk who was terrorizing New York.

Comments: Created by Udon (writer & art).

Due to the Asian specific nature of the Mangaverse reality, it goes without saying that while characters might look similar to their 616 counterparts, they most likely will have distinctly different names, codenames or powers. Therefore we will only list the names when they have been used in the comics.

Several of the Phalanx creatures worked for Apocalypse as spies. The Phalanx were used to spy on the Avengers, for instance to gain information on the location of their Iron Avengers machines.

Note: It's been unrevealed if the Mangaverse Phalanx is also alien in nature. They resembled small squids with cameras for tentacles.
