    Fox Broadcasting Presents

    X-Men Season 4: Age of Apocalypse

    "Peace does not invoke strength. Instead it invites weakness. In order for mutants to evolve. They must be strong!" Apocalypse

    It goes without saying that so far in the duration of the Fox Marvel Universe that the X-Men story lines have often been regarded as some of it's weaker outings. This of course comes following a troubled, messy first season and despite the following seasons being improvements, still falling short of reaching it's potential. To the fourth season's credit while still not at the show's peak there was a lot of improvement. This included in some rather unpredictable story telling as well as surprising character development for some of it's lesser established cast. Unlike the previous two seasons which focused on a human with his agenda against mutants. This season gave us an imposing not to mention commanding mutant threat while also furthering the major political story line of mutant rights which has been ongoing since season one. As with such a powerful antagonist the growth of mutant hate groups increased as did the popularity of outspoken mutant hating senator Robert Kelly (Leland Orser). While not a key part so far in any of the seasons antagonist wise, it is clear that there is something being built on with all these appearances by the senator due to his usual association with the likes of Bolivar Trask and William Stryker in the past. Going by a post credit scene which will be addressed later on one might say that Kelly could in fact be considered one of the primary antagonists of the entire series.

    Carrying on the differences from the past seasons this season had a more religious side to it or to be accurate a more question of belief. This was in display early on thanks to the dynamic of mutants Caliban (Toby Schmitz) and Mesmero (Burn Gorman). Both mutants who proclaimed to be devout followers of their god made for some compelling scenes thanks to their respective gifts. As in Caliban you had someone who was later referred to as a hell hound thanks to his gifts for locating other mutants. Meanwhile in Mesmero with his abilities to hypnotize you had the spokesman for god as he was able to recruit followers. This is what led them to Angel (Jackson Rathbone). The former X-Men who tragically had his wings damaged to the point of no repair in the previous season was a shadow of his former self. Now a heavy drinking, violent, surly and embittered individual which made him an ideal potential recruit in many ways for them. While he definitely hasn't been used as well as he could have been in previous seasons this season gave the character of Angel a chance to break out as it showed a darker more desperate edge to his character which led to this villainous turn. Of course in order to join them Angel would need some convincing.

    These early scenes also set up an interesting father and son dynamic which would feature across the season. As Angel soon got all the convincing he needed when he was brought to the temple of En Sabah Nur/Apocalypse (Kevin Grevioux). A commanding presence the second he arrives on screen Apocalypse very much commands respect from his servants. A tyrant to some and a messiah to others Apocalypse seems to harbor a modicum of respect towards Warren Worthington/Angel due to his strength of mind and sheer will. Because of this respect Apocalypse would make Angel his personal archangel as he granted him artificial wings to replace his damaged ones. It was here also we met several of Apocalypse's other followers known as The Dark Riders. This group led by Gauntlet (Langley Kirkwood) is comprised of Tusk (Joseph Gatt), Foxbat (Frederick Weller), Spyne (Tyson Sullivan) and Lifeforce (Valerie Curry). This group strongly followed the words of their god and very much acted as his loyal foot soldiers. It was here that more of Apocalypse's plans were unveiled as the ruler strongly believed in survival of the fittest and saw a world full of strong mutants all of whom he intended to use in his goal to eliminate the weaker species being humanity.

    Meanwhile in what seemed to be a recurring trend for this season with other character's receiving more prominent feature. The scenes at the X-Men mansion were not featuring Wolverine (Manu Bennett) for the first time. With Wolverine leaving at the end of season 3 following his battle with Sabretooth. He opted to leave in order to find out who he really was. The absence of Wolverine in these scenes allowed for a more prominent feature on a few of the newer additions to the X-Men family being Nightcrawler (Iwan Rheon), X-23 (India Eisley) and Rogue (Lyndsey Fonesca). All of whom had their own specific traits and characteristics with Rogue for example being a hardened, stubborn girl who deep down was afraid to let anyone in at risk of hurting them with her powers. Meanwhile in Nightcrawler you had a deeply religious character who was equally positive and light hearted making him a breath of fresh air for the series. While with X-23 there was a girl who for the first time in her life was experiencing what it was like to have kindness and friends after a harsh upbringing in the weapon plus program. Meanwhile also two of the more underused characters in the series so far Storm (Kerry Washington) and Beast (Tyler Hoechlin) were given more screen time. As both stepped up in their roles at the Xavier Institute and began to teach and mentor students in their own right.

    Concerned about the whereabouts of Logan, Jean Grey (Evan Rachel Wood) asked Charles Xavier (Terry O'Quinn) if he had tried using cerebro to find him. Jean's concern definitely appeared to bother her boyfriend Scott Summers/Cyclops (Ian Somerholder). This of course continued the story of a potential love triangle as well as the burgeoning anger Cyclops held to Logan. Despite the loss of one of their strongest members the team had to carry on with their work as normal. This included a spate of disappearances of mutants across the globe including Angel. This news was brought to them by an old friend of Charles, Moira MacTaggert (Winona Ryder). A former love interest of Charles who has since become a leading authority of Genetic Mutation. With her work in the government Moira had proved a valuable ally to Charles over the years and she did so here as she surprised Charles with the news that these disappearances are believed not to be the work of the Brotherhood who are said to be remaining quiet at the moment.

    This quiet phase was down to the orders of Magneto (Mads Mikkelsen). Showing a different side to his personality than we had seen previously from him in the last few. Magneto despite his want for mutant supremacy showed his level of care for all mutants and his level for respect for Charles as he sought to genuinely do what he could for his Brotherhood. This included toying with the idea of having the Brotherhood actually join the X-Men. This news seemed to affect all the group differently with the likes of Mystique (Yvonne Strahoski), Pyro (Jake Abel) and Avalanche (Alex O'Loughlin) all seeming rather against it. Whereas Magneto's children Quicksiler (Alex Pettyfer) and Scarlett Witch (Ruth Wilson) both liked the idea of all mutants coming together. Meanwhile new recruit Gambit (Alexander Skarsgaard) was fine with any idea that benefited him.

    Of course it would soon be revealed that these abductions and later murders of mutants across the world were in fact the work of Apocalypse and his Dark Riders. Sending them out to find and test mutants to see if they were worthy of following him. Apocalypse hadn't found many so far who he did consider worthy. However what he did gain was his four horseman from this recruitment. This included Autumn Rolfson/Famine (Danielle Harris) who was capable of disintegrating organic matter while also inducing extreme hunger to those she chooses, Plague/Pestilence (Amanda Plummer) who was capable of absorbing and spreading any disease to people she came into contact with, Psylocke/War (Katharine Isabelle) a mutant with telekinetic abilities capable of using her powers to create deadly weapons and lastly Sunfire/Death (Lee Byung Hun) who was capable of generating plasma which he uses to release as force blasts from his hands.

    Despite the news that the brotherhood wasn't involved it didn't stop Charles reaching out to Magneto. In a scene reminiscent from the pilot episode of Fox's Marvel program. While Marvel has limited the solo scenes between Charles and Erik. It has to be said that every time the two have been put together they are some of the most well acted scenes. In this scene the two mutants spoke to one another with great respect albeit a slight hint of tension as Charles remained unsure of Erik's motivations. That is until Erik gave Charles permission to enter his mind and see for himself. Concerned in regards to the potential threat towards all of them Charles made the decision to bring Erik back to the mansion where Magneto came face to face with Moira. There was a past teased here as well as there was a noted coldness between the two. As they discussed the disappearances and the threat to mutants everywhere again Jean would intercept things and urge Charles to use cerebro in order to reach out to Wolverine. In making this decision Charles and Magneto finally got a look at just who they were up against. Because when they used cerebro to hone in on Logan's location they found him in battle with the Dark Riders who were yet again looking to test another mutant.

    Seeing Logan in trouble The X-Men along with Magneto headed for the X-Jet and began to make their way to rescue their ally. Meanwhile in battle the Dark Riders showed their lack of restraint for the weak also applied to one another as Wolverine was able to viciously decapitate Spyne and mortally wound Foxbat. With Foxbat hurt Lifeforce would drain the remaining life from him but as she did this Apocalypse would appear before Wolverine along with Archangel, Mesmero and Caliban. Impressed with the ferocity displayed by Wolverine, Apocalypse detailed his plans for making the world stronger. At first it seemed Wolverine was unsure of Apocalypse's words but thanks to an assist by Mesmero, Wolverine soon joined the cause as the X-Jet showed up. Coming face to face with Apocalypse for the first time both Charles and Magneto seemed stunned by the sheer power they could feel from this mutant. Again Apocalypse spoke of his plans for his new world as he looked to invite the X-Men and Magneto to join him.

    When they refused his offer it was here that we saw the more ruthless side of Apocalypse as he ordered his riders to attack The X-Men. Along with Wolverine and Angel who complied with his orders the remaining Dark Riders attacked. While the X-Men appeared to be hesitant to hurt their friends it was clear that neither Wolverine or Angel had the same concern that is until Magneto pinned Wolverine to the ground allowing Cyclops to knock him out following an optic blast. Angel however proved to be a different challenge as he was completely devout to the ways of Apocalypse and attacked his former friends without any remorse. However soon a third party would join the group as a mutant known as Bishop (Michael Jai White) led his team comprised of Warpath (Anthony Ruivivar) and Moonstar (Q'orianka Kilcher) into the fray. The trio quickly established themselves as potential allies for Charles and his team as Warpath managed to kill both Gauntlet and Tusk meanwhile a combination of Moonstar and Bishop was able to destroy Angel's new wings thanks to an energy blast by Bishop. This would lead to Angel falling to his death while Apocalypse, Caliban, Mesmero and Lifeforce made their exit.

    Due to the increase of mutant on mutant violence thanks to the dark riders efforts, Robert Kelly's hatred towards mutants grew as he urged citizens and members of the senate to agree to his mutant registration act idea. This idea would of course bring him into frequent conflict with Moira McTaggert as well as Hank McCoy/Beast who were doing all they could together in an effort to turn mutant publicity around. Meanwhile having rescued Wolverine from the clutches of Apocalypse, Jean Grey did her best with her abilities to pull him from Mesmero's spell. As this happened Charles Xavier and Magneto spoke with Bishop. Explaining how he come from a dystopian future under Apocalypse's rule. Bishop explained that he had come back to this time with his allies in an effort to change history from the horrors they face back home. Allowing Charles to enter his mind we saw glimpses of this horrific time in which Apocalypse was ruling. This included a new form of sentinel robot designed to eliminate those deemed too weak by Apocalypse. While at first The X-Men was unsure of Bishop thanks to Charles' endorsement him and his group were soon welcome allies.

    While the X-Men also looked to regroup and help welcome Logan back into the fray. Focus then turned to Apocalypse and his group. Dismayed at the fall of many of his dark riders Apocalypse made the decision to bring his Horsemen into the field. However in private we saw a different side to this ruthless tyrant. As in private the so called god of mutants had concerns and fears of his own. This includes a noted chink in his armor which it appeared that only Caliban and Mesmero were truly aware of. Of course he didn't have much time to focus on that weakness which was kept quiet for now as instead he and his group opted to look elsewhere for followers. With the X-Men turning him down Apocalypse and his team showed up before the Brotherhood. Claiming to be impressed with the mutants ways in the past. Apocalypse extended an offer to the Brotherhood and Magneto to join his side. Now while you may assume these two villains could work together with their hatred of humanity. Having seen Apocalypse and his group in action before Magneto refused as there was a noted difference between the two. While Magneto wanted prosperity and cared for all mutants. Apocalypse only favored the strong.

    However while the likes of Magneto, Mystique and Scarlet Witch knew better than to join his cause. Meanwhile the likes of Avalance, Pyro and Quicksilver all remained unsure. However Gambit true to his what suits himself nature on display earlier was quick to join Apocalypse and his team. Branding the conflicted and the refuters weak Apocalypse and his horsemen attacked the brotherhood in a battle which would also determine just where the loyalties of the undecided would lie. As in a shocking scene a combination of Plague inflicting her with sickness would weaken Scarlet Witch and allow Psylocke to stab her through the chest with one of her swords. While the Brotherhood would watch on in horror as she collapsed to the floor dying. As Apocalypse and his team made their leave a vengeful Magneto promised he would kill the god.

    As he returned to his base with his horsemen Apocalpse surprisingly would collapse. This again went back to that weakness from earlier. His followers shocked at his weakened state it was revealed that while Apocalypse cannot die. His body can and before it does he needs a new host which is why he has gathered this array of followers. To not only help him achieve his vision of taking over the world once and for all but to also help him find a vessel which can host his body. Aiding him in this quest was of course Caliban who thanks to his abilities had managed to find a few potential mutants suitable of containing his power. Meanwhile Lifeforce had been aiding him by stealing the lifeforce of some of her victims and passing it onto Apocalypse. Of course the question would come just what mutants could potentially harbor the power of apocalypse. Several names were then mentioned for a variety of reasons including Magneto, Charles Xavier, Wolverine, Jean Grey and Rogue.

    While Apocalypse's minions began to plot their next move, A grieving Magneto and the remaining members of the Brotherhood met up with the X-Men. With vengeance purely on his mind Magneto made it clear that he was fully intending to bring death to Apocalypse. Meanwhile having done her research onto the mutant himself Moira McTaggert proved herself to be a valuable ally to the group as she provided some backstory to Apocalypse. Revealing that there have been stories of En Sabah Nur/Apocalypse since ancient egypt. This includes reports of him over the years at times of great conflict in the world. With the reports she has seen stating that is believed he is the cause of many of this conflict and war. This tied in with what details Bishop had been able to provide to the group as they gained more knowledge on their foe. Knowledge that would soon have to be put to use as Lifeforce, Mesmero, Caliban, Gambit and the Horsemen arrived on the outskirts of the Xavier institute.

    With Apocalypse notably absent from the proceedings it was clear that his followers had a mission to achieve. As they looked to gain a potential transplant for Apocalypse while eliminating everything and everyone that got in their way. What followed was an impressive, action packed war between the opposing mutant factions which would see casualties taken on both sides. Early on in the battle the abilities of Famine and Plague played heavily into effect as they weakened all attackers for their heavy hitters. During the process it appeared that Psylocke would execute Shadowcat when in a surprising degree of self sacrifice Avalanche would step between the two and be impaled by Psylocke's blade. This of course played on some past build of a potential attraction between Avalanche and Shadowcat which in turn caused his death. Meanwhile in another surprising degree of selflessness Mystique heavily fought to protect both Nightcrawler and Rogue from Famine's onslaught. With Famine fully targeting Mystique with her abilities she would soon be destroyed thanks to Wolverine who cut her in half with his claws.

    In his first scenes in conflict Gambit proved himself to be a skilled combatant as he busted out both his trademark staff and cards from the comics to combat the likes of Beast and Cyclops. However things would change when Gambit came fact to face with Rogue. Similar to what was mentioned earlier with Avalanche and Shadowcat, there was a notable chemistry and connection between the two. One which would later play into a heavy effect as Plague looked to target Rogue only to have Gambit surprisingly rescue her from the battle field. This turn would allow a vengeful Mystique the opportunity to snap the neck of Plague killing her once and for all. As their numbers began to fall Apocalypse's minions started to flee choosing to fight another day. That would be apart from Mesmero who found himself out matched mentally by the abilities of Jean Grey. This would render Mesmero helpless and soon at the mercy of Magneto.

    Because in some brutal scenes that followed Magneto with the knowledge of Mesmero's abilities to manipulate others. Instead of letting Charles and Jean just enter his mind and risk seeing a manipulated vision of Apocalypse. Magneto opted to torture Mesmero as he was clearly taking out the anger of his daughter's death on the mutant. While Magneto's methods raised a question of morality among some of the mutants. Having seen the power of Apocalypse and his team plus his designs on the world. It was accepted as a necessary evil and one which would pay off as eventually Mesmero would spill his guts about everything he knew. From where Apocalypse was hiding to his weakness and need of a host. With this news the X-Men realized that now is the time to strike and defeat Apocalypse. Having told them all he knew Mesmero was a defeated man who was quickly put out of his misery as Magneto impaled him with several knives.

    In the run up to the final battle a few key scenes were then shown. One of which involved Senator Robert Kelly again use the goings on in the mutant community to promote his latest idea of a mutant registration act. An act which has been heavily funded by a mysterious individual known as Graydon Creed (Milo Ventimiglia). Also shown was a scene between Mystique and Wolverine in which Mystique surprisingly made a revelation to her long time foe. As after being questioned by wolverine she revealed that both Rogue and Nightcrawler were in fact her children. She would curiously also mention that she had one other out there but that they must never know that she is their mother out of fear that they would reject her for the things she had done. With the location of Apocalypse's tomb in egypt where he was set to slumber and rest knowing that as the years pass his opposition will grow old and weak. The X-Men team consisting of Charles, Cyclops, Beast, Wolverine, Storm, Jean, Nightcrawler, Rogue, Iceman, Shadowcat, Colossus and X-23 were joined by Magneto, Mystique, Pyro, Gambit as well as Bishop, Warpath and Moonstar in the quinjet to head to the location.

    As they arrived in Egypt and at Apocalypse's tomb they would find it heavily guarded by some low level new members of the dark riders who were led by Caliban. Also guarding Apocalypse was Psylocke and Sunfire while Apocalypse was inside his tomb with Lifeforce who was again granting him life with her abilities. This ensuing battle would be more intense than the last as there was this brooding sense of the unknown and a feeling that anyone could die. It made for suspenseful viewing as in a shocking moment Sunfire was able to overcome the powers of Moonstar and use his abilities to shockingly kill both her and Warpath. His actions would soon cost him though as Sunfire was soon brought down thanks to a combination of Cyclops, Nightcrawler and Storm with Bishop delivering the final blow to gain revenge for the loss of his friends. Unfortunately before any success could be had a more tragic moment followed as Nightcrawler similar to Scarlet Witch earlier was cut down by Psylocke.

    Falling to the ground Nightcrawler was caught by a horrified Mystique who was soon joined by Rogue as the X-Men looked on stunned. As Mystique said a tearful goodbye it was revealed that Nightcrawler did in fact know of his parentage and in his last words he revealed to Rogue that he was her brother and that she like him was a child of Mystique's. Angered by the loss of her friends Storm sent down several bolts of Lightning to Psylocke with one blow knocking her off her feet before she was viciously mauled by Beast killing her. Meanwhile with the dark riders easily defeated once more Caliban would also be killed thanks to a combination attack from Pyro and Iceman who seemingly put their rivalry aside for the time being. Although while this battle may have seemed a success in some aspects. It also acted as a diversion for Apocalypse who had seemingly grown stronger thanks to Lifeforce's efforts.

    This strength would allow him to enter the fight and on his own his true powers were on display. These abilities including Super Strength, Telekinesis, Energy Blasts, Shape Shifting, Flight, telepathy and speed. Making him both a physical and mental threat for all those who stood across from him. This marked a strong improvement from the past seasons of the X-Men series as we finally saw a truly powerful and threatening antagonist both physically and mentally to the team and one who was shockingly able to take the fight to all the mutants involved. However soon a chink in his armor would be found as while Apocalypse at his power could beat any who stand in front of him, his abilities began to take a toll on his host. This would cause Lifeforce again to emerge from the shadows and look to strengthen him however this time she would be struck down and killed by Quicksilver. With his power source gone Apocalypse soon found himself overwhelmed and out matched thanks to his host being drained. From here after enduring physical attacks from the likes of beast, cyclops, wolverine, X-23, Pyro, Iceman, Gambit among others as well as mental attacks by the likes of Charles and Jean. Apocalypse soon found his armor torn from him by Magneto.

    As Apocalypse fell to his knees he began to muse that even in his host's death he could not be killed. That is until Magneto revealed that they didn't plan on killing Apocalypse. Instead they had other plans and it was here that the true strength of Jean Grey came into play as using her abilities combined with Charles they was able to trap Apocalypse once and for all in an astral plane where he would be doomed to spend eternity. Following the defeat of Apocalypse all the mutants returned home were they buried all their friends and loved ones who fell in the battles to save the world. A surprising offer would then be made by Charles to Magneto for him and his Brotherhood to join the X-Men. One which after much deliberation the group would surprisingly accept with a touching moment being Mystique promising to make up for lost time with her daughter. Another surprise would be that of Bishop agreeing to stick around in this time with the promise that while he wouldn't join the X-Men as he needed to find himself in this new world, that he'd be there if he needed them.

    This would bring an end to another season of the X-Men story as part of Fox's Marvel Universe. While still not perfect, the show definitely showed some great signs of improvement this time round especially with it's designs on improving the character's of some of it's lesser focused stars. As per marvel custom a single post credit scene would then be shown with a embittered Robert Kelly in his office having his proposal for a mutant registration act rejected. Kelly would soon be joined by Graydon Creed who harbored a similar hate of mutants for unknown reasons. In a brief speech Creed stated that an act isn't enough to bring down the mutants but that he has another plan. One which first needs the world to have the right motivation to go along with. The scene would then cut out with Kelly nodding his head in agreement stating he is willing to do whatever it takes to stop the mutants.
