So, just who is this Apocalypse character anyway, and why exactly should Professor X and his X-Men team fear him? A new featurette for the next chapter in the mutant saga, "X-Men: Apocalypse," is providing the answers you seek as it presents viewers a quick rundown of the history of Apocalypse, who is an ancient supervillain (played by a blue-tinted Oscar Isaac) aiming to cleanse the world of whom he deems unworthy.

According to director Bryan Singer and his cast, Apocalypse is the very first mutant who was "born a millennial ago and brought civilization to mankind." Worshiped as a God, he's able to "rejuvenate himself throughout history by taking the body of another mutant," amassing a number of wide-ranging superpowers in the process. So, yeah, he's one bad mofo. And it looks like Professor X has a serious problem on his hands.

Prepare to fear the Apocalypse when the "X-Men" sequel arrives in theaters on May 27.

Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshipped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel's X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.
