Looked at as a god in ancient Egypt, Apocalypse is one of the most powerful mutants the Marvel universe has ever seen, and when he reawakens in the 1980s for X-Men: Apocalypse, he’ll use his incredible powers to remake the world in his own image. However, he won’t undertake this task alone. Just like in the comics, he’ll have the Four Horsemen by his side, and in the X-Men cinematic universe, this group will consist of Magneto, Storm, Psylocke and Angel.

Between the trailers, photos and other promotional material, we’ve learned a lot about how these four fit into the movie, most of whom have appeared on the big screen before. Now with less than two months until the movie’s release, the X-Men: Apocalypse social media accounts have released individual posters for each mutant, along with three-word descriptions summarizing their character. Oh, and they all have cloud-like horses detailed behind them. Because they’re his Horsemen! Get it? Anyways, take a look!

First up, Warren Worthington III, a.k.a. Angel, played by Ben Hardy. Just like in the comics, Angel will start out with his normal, feathered wings, but after joining Apocalypse’s side, they will be coated in metal, making them more lethal and able to shoot quill projectiles. He also has that weird face tattoo, and since he didn’t seem to have that when we saw in in the cage fight during the second trailer, presumably this also comes with joining Apocalypse. 

Angel’s accompanying description is, "Savage. Dark. Fallen." Although usually a hero, Angel did indeed fallen to villainy when he joined Apocalypse and sen a few other times. Angel’s only other movie appearance was in X-Men: The Last Stand, and he didn’t get to partake in the action for that long. This time, however, we have an Angel who’s far from home and not afraid to let out his rage. Undergoing Apocalypse’s experimentation and becoming Archangel will undoubtedly take him further to a dark place.
