War was a mutant and one of the Horsemen of Apocalypse prior to Apocalypse's entombment. He possessed red skin and could disintegrate organic matter.


X-Men: Apocalypse


In 3600 BC, War was present at Apocalypse's transference, this time into the body of a mutant with a healing factor, allowing Apocalypse to gain immortality. When Apocalypse is betrayed and the pyramid begins crumbling down, War protects Apocalypse's new body by shielding him from the falling debris, but he was soon crushed by a huge stone.

When Apocalypse returned in the modern day era, Magneto took War's place as one of Apocalypse's horsemen.

Powers & Weaknesses



War's powerful shock-wave blast

  • Vibro-Disintegration Blast - War can disintegrate organic matter. He was shown using this ability by clapping his hands together, thus releasing a powerful shock-wave that blasted two attackers away and stripped them of their flesh and life, leaving only two mutilated carcasses with muscle tissue and bones.
  • Superhuman Strength - War possessed strength greater than that of any normal human, which allowed him to punch through and lift up falling debris to protect Apocalypse.


However, War did not possess an equally high level of superhuman durability, which was demonstrated when he was crushed by the pyramid.
