The grand conclusion of the X-Men saga, [ITAL]Apocalypse[ITAL] puts our mutant heroes through their most trying ordeal yet. An ancient mutant named En-Sabah-Nur, played by Oscar Isaac, who ruled the world as a God millennia ago, has risen again to wipe out modern civilization and remake it in his image and reclaim his place as principal deity and ruler. In the process, Sabah-Nur runs up against the X-Men, led by Charles Xavier. Faced with their toughest enemy ever, the X-Men must make decisions that will leave permanent scars on every one of them. [ITAL]Apocalypse[ITAL] touches on several interesting themes — leadership, family and belonging — and takes familiar characters in interesting new directions.
