The main villain in the upcoming X-Men flick is, of course, Apocalypse himself. Rumored to be the first mutant, a new video hints that he may have had a hand in devastating events in real history.
The viral video seems like something straight out of late-night television. George Takei narrates the clip, which has been followed with plenty of tweets and imagery expanding on Apocalypse’s hand in Earth’s history. The videos are a parody of paranormal 1980s television like In Search Of…, which was narrated by Leonard Nimoy, another beloved Star Trek star.
When Apocalypse rises, civilizations fall.
