Todays entry in the Grumpy Old Men series is brought to you by the letter "A", as in...
When it comes to being old and grumpy they don't come any older or grumpier than Apocalypse. Born over 5,000 years ago in Egypt, he's one of the oldest and most powerful mutants in the X-men universe. As far as abilities go, Apocalypse has many such as the ability to change and alter the size and shape of his body, very powerful at telepathy and telekinesis, and most important is his immortality that has kept him alive for thousands of years. His main goal, like many, is to rule and control the world and let nothing stand in his way.
Another unique trait of Apocalypse is his "four horsemen;" mutants that he cyberneticly alters and controls with his mind to follow out his plans. He still remains one of the biggest threats in the MARVEL world calling for many, hero and villain alike, to join together to stop him.

I love these types of villains in comics and cartoons. The type of villain so powerful that they threaten the world so intently that heros and villains must join forces. He has several times put the fate of humanity at stack. He is not only a pure powerhouse but also a supreme intelligence capable of devising very complex strategies and planing. Apocalypse is a character full of rage and hate and I love him for it. I'm glad to include him into the Grumpy Old Men universe.
