A is for Apocalypse #AtoZChallenge

aWelcome to Day 1 of the A to Z Challenge. This year I have chosen the theme of antagonists.

On my normal blogging days, Monday – parenting and Thursday – writing/publishing, I will tie that day’s topic to antagonists but on the other days (Tuesday, Friday and Saturday), I will write about antagonists from movies, TVs or books. On Wednesdays, my Quote of the Week will be from an antagonist that matches the letter of the day. Enjoy. 

apocalypse-marvel-comics-x-men-gA is for Apocalypse, the supervillain from Marvel Comics. He first appeared in X-Facto #5 (May 1986). He is an ancient mutant and immortal. He can alter his form and can directly interface with various technologies. He is merciless. He did not care whether you were human or mutant. If you are weak, you would be destroyed.

Apocalypse is also the main villain in the film X-men: Apocalypse (2016), the ninth installment in the X-men film series. He recruits a team of powerful mutants to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign.

Heck, with a name like Apocalypse, you know he means trouble.

    Indeed he spells trouble. I wouldn’t want to bump into him in a dark alley after 7 pm.!

    Thank you for visiting my blog, Susan!

    I was sad that the new movies brought in Apocalypse so soon. I think it lost a lot of the impact he could have had if the movie featured characters we already knew and cared about… I think they rushed straight to the “Big Story,” and the movie ended up kind of “meh.” Especially compare to the same storyline in the comics…

    Without an antagonist why would we even care what happens in the story?

    I am laying out the plot of a new historical fiction novel over my 26 A to Z posts. I’d love to have you stop by.

    The Steel Horse Saviors is a story about three civil war veterans who head west in 1866 with their Steam Locomotive to seek their fortune. They encounter a beautiful redhead trying desperately to save her family business.
