In comic books, Apocalypse was last seen in the Axis crossover in early 2015. An alternate universe version of the character was featured -- and killed -- in Secret Wars.

Apocalypse was teased in the post-credits scene of X-Men: Days of Future Past, and is the primary villain in May 26's X-Men: Apocalypse.

Newsarama has not yet reached Marvel Comics for confirmation.
