The first known incarnation of the Four Horsemen are seen in Ancient Egypt watching as their master uses his powers to construct the pyramids while a vast crowd of people bow before him, chanting his name.

X-Men: Apocalypse

Somehow, Apocalypse makes Storm, Magneto, Angel and Psylocke his new incarnation of Horsemen.



  • In the comic books, Apocalypse has often manipulated different mutants into being his Horsemen. Examples include Angel, Wolverine, Gambit, Psylocke, Banshee and Polaris.
  • Each Horseman embodies a different horror that humanity has constantly been faced with: War, Famine, Pestilence and Death.
  • Bryan Singer stated the Four Horsemen chosen for X-Men: Apocalypse reflect real-world cults and how they tend to have factions associated with politics, military, sex or youth.[1]
  • Magneto and Storm's roles as the Horsemen is similar to their X-Men Evolution counterparts, War and Famine, respectively.
