The movie sees the X-Men pitted against a new threat against mutants and humanity, one stronger and more ancient than any they have previously faced. This threat is Apocalypse, supposedly the first mutant, who has been entombed for thousands of years in Egypt. Upon being unearthed in the 1980s, he sets about bringing a new rule over mutant kind and purging the world of anyone he deems to be weak. To aid him in this cause, Apocalypse rounds up a team of mutants he calls his 'horsemen', in reference to the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. The X-Men must find a way to combat this ancient evil force. The movie also continues in tradition with the previous films in the series, by focusing on many of the individual mutants on a more personal level, lending a great deal of personality and humanity to them, who might otherwise seem sole like larger than life superheroes and villains.
