Isaac will play the sub-titular Apocalypse, an enormously powerful X-Men villain born 5000 years ago in Egypt. Because some of his god-like powers include a heightened healing factor and immortality, the character yet remains alive in the new film's '80 setting--where, thanks to his ability to shift his size, Apocalypse can and will fit into any and all Members Only jackets.
