I would like to see someone new show up as one of his horsemen. So, I would pick Angel, Beast, Sinister, and Mikhail Rasputin.

I don't want Beast to come back from the dead and I certainly don't Gambit to come back from the dead. Now going along with my Apocalypse as an insane cult leader idea, his Horsemen would be his most fanatical followers, with Sinister, Abyss and Holocaust as his first three Horsemen. When Ali seems to be slipping away into death, Angel is contacted by Apocalypse who promises to heal her, if he promises to serve him. Angel allows Apocalypse to use his mental powers to enslave him in exchange for Ali's restored health.

Mikhail I would save for another storyline, in order to give Colossus more of a backstory.

I'd like to see either Apoc or Sinister clone Beast from the corpse, to create Dark Beast, the horseman War...

To each their own, but I think brining Beast back as a clone seems little too 616 for my taste. I would death remains permanent in the UU.

I love Beast, he's my favorite X-Man, so bringing him back as a horse man of Apocalype is fine with me.....as Death,

and Sinister would have to be War.........

As far as Gambit goes, I think there is already something planed for bringing him back...

I like Beast and Gambit, I feel they were killed too early, so I wouldnt mind them coming back, but I believe the dead should stay dead in UU. But in Blade 2 I didn't mind Whisler coming back cause he was a cool character, so I was willing to let that slide.

You are all just obstacles on my path to Nirvana.
I still want to know when we'll be seeing the Apocalypse storyline touched on again. It was sort of a book-end type deal to Vaughan's run (beginning in The Tempest and touched upon minorly in Magnetic North), but I know we're going to see more of him and Sinister eventually, I just wonder how long we'll have to wait...hopefully not until UXM #100 or so, but that would be a nice centennial issue event, the unveiling of Ultimate Apocalypse (at least as far as a real, living, breathing, and dangerous enemy, and not only as possibly just the figment of some nut's imagination). Course a storyline focusing on Magneto is probably more likely, but who knows?

So, if Singer does introduce Apocalypse and the Horsemen, do you think the Horsemen will be existing characters or new ultimizations?

The ending of the Tempus arc left the door open for Apocalypse to be real or to still be a fake. However if Apocalypse was real it take a bit of fancy footwork to explain his behaviour in the Tempest. The best way to do this, as I have mentioned before, is to make him a powerful super mutant, the next stage in evolution with vast mental powers. Apocalypse is also a meglomaniac who believes himself to be a god and has created a cult to worship him. Apocalypse contacted Mr. Sinister and had him attempt to kill the 10 mutants in the Tempest arc as a test, to see if he was worthy. The Horsemen are Apocalypse's elite, his most fanatical followers.

Not even trying to correct your spelling, per se, just saying give Vaughan the respect he deserves, the man is the UXM writer version of a deity.

Well I edited it for the correct spelling, so you can now sleep at night.
