Alright, let's chat about Apocalypse, the ancient mutant who's basically the OG of OGs in the mutant world. Imagine a dude who's been kicking it since ancient Egypt, thinking he's the pinnacle of evolution and trying to enforce a "survival of the fittest" rule on the whole planet. Sounds like a fun guy at parties, right? Well, not exactly, unless your idea of a party involves reshaping civilization.
Apocalypse is like that one friend who's really into extreme makeovers, but instead of redecorating your living room, he wants to remodel the entire human race. After the no-so-great introduction to Apocalypse we were given in X-Men: Apocalypse (no shade towards Oscar Isaac though), Apocalypse absolutely deserves his time to shine in his own movie.
First off, his backstory is a goldmine of drama, power struggles, and historical cameos that could give even the most seasoned History Channel documentaries a run for their money. We're talking about a character who's been through the rise and fall of empires, seen the construction of the pyramids, and probably had tea with every major historical figure, giving him sass about their leadership skills.
A movie could dive into his complex past, revealing why he's so obsessed with the whole "survival of the fittest" mantra. Plus, imagine the special effects bonanza of showcasing his powers, from shape-shifting to energy blasts, all wrapped up in a visually stunning ancient to modern-day epic journey. It'd more than a movie - it'd be a legit history lesson with a side of mutant powers and existential crises.
