    These past two episodes (Apocalypse saga) have been the best I've seen in this show. Just love the fact that the X-Men and the Brotherhood of Mutants are fighting on the same side.

    One question: I taped this saturday's episode but my dishplayer stopped the recording right when Apocalypse comes out of his tomb and shoots this shockwave against the X-Men and the Brotherhood of Mutants. As they are falling to the ground, my recording stops. All kinds of profanity followed after being at the edge of my seat and missing the ending.

    Can someone tell me what happened afterwards?

    BTW, I'm a casual X-Men comics reader but I've never seen how Apocalypse looks like in the comics. I've only seen him in the 90's X-Men show. Is that how he's supposed to look? in X-Men Evolution, he looks like a normal guy. What's up with that?

    After he came out of the tomb he pretty much took everyone out with that shockwave. He proceeded past the group of mutants as they were layed out and started out towards the timeship. Magneto tried to get up to stop him from entering the ship but one more of those claps took him out. Then he was gone. Everyones Okay- but man it will be nice to see what they have happen next. Just wish that the movies would try the Apocalypse senario!

    My Tivo stopped the recording a minute before the end as well, WB is not sticking to their schedule very well.

    I really like this show, I do wish though that they would spend a bit more money on the animation, it is pretty cheap looking.

    James, I feel better knowing it wasn't just my dishplayer.

    Justin, thanks for the update. So any word on Apocalypse's look?

    I always thought Apocalypse was older than time... so I'm not sold on the Ancient Egyptian look.

    I'm at work, so I don't have anything to reference off hand, but I think his origin has always been linked to ancient Egypt, although he did also influence many other cultures. I could be totally wrong though.

    Does he look in the comic books the same way he does in the 90's X-Men show? Kind of like a robot?

    Because in X-Men Evolution he looks like a normal human being.

    From what I can recall about the big guy from earlier works he did kind of have an Egyptian begining though I can't verify if what this show did his beginings justice.

    In the 90's Xmen cartoon it did present Apocalypse as a creature that has always existed or has always been (which of course isn't likely).

    I think they did refer to Apocalypse as En Sabah Nur his egyption name in the 90's tv series.

    Apocalypse was an ancient Egyptian known as En Nabah Sur, he was cast out into the desert at which time his mutant powers emerged, he is extremely long lived (more thn 5000 years old) but he is not older than time. Here's a link to all you need to know:

    So X-Men Evolution was more or less on the money with Apocalypse's beginnings.

    It plays with the characters a bit to cut down on backstory somewhat but its fairly accurate.
