    Apocalypse
    Is X good? Absolutely. But Apoco is fantastic on another level, not only for what he can do, but for what he can do for others. His Horseman ability is one of the best additions to the game as of late and can make even mediocre Mutants great fighters. It also brings Wolverine back to relevance and makes champions like Gambit and Namor even more absurd.

    Ideal situation? Put them both together. A Horseman Prof X is a terrifying thought.

    Mainly because his playstyle perfectly suits me (Parry-Heavy-Special.) That Mind Control is a very good piece of utility that helps me if I give opponents too much Power. All it takes is a few Sp2s while Mind Controlled and it's game over.

    I am still waiting for a youtuber to play Prof X in the right way, exploiting the falter to intercept the opponent. Until that moment, 90% of players will not understand his incredible potential.
    Prof X is a massive utility champ with the addition of insane damage output.
    Currently my 6s r2 is one of the pillars of my roster to clear path5 in AW (tier 2): a 6s r3 Nick Fury in the first step goes down without loosing more than 15% health with just a 200% power boost (no additional atk or health boost required).
    Rhino and Thor Ragnarok in the second step go down without loosing more than 5% health, still without any boost.
    Counter to miss, counter to evade, unbelievable block proficency, great damage output, unblockable specials, no-contact hits, energy hits...
    I also have a 6s r2 Apocalypse and yeah, the ability to turn off the purify is super useful. He is solid and qith a lot of immunities potentially, true. Also, Apocalypse is a better defender, no doubts on it.
    But soon, when I will be asked to decide who to rank 3, I am going to rank up Xavier.

    The only thing that can make you decide for Apocalypse could be if you permanently run suicides, since Prof X is not really friendly (his gameplay forces you to throw a lot of specials).

    Alone, without any synergies or anything, I would take Prof X over Apoco since I dislike his ramp up.

    Professor X even just for his Insanely Smooth animations. End of Debate.
    Just Kidding. Apocolypse is much better in utility but nowhere near Professor X in term of animations. Also ever thought of Horsemen Professor X? Absolute Terror!!!

    Apocalypse
    Out of the two I would EASILY take up apoc and there might be some character bias. Much better utility atm imo and damage output wise they’re both really solid. Apoc is a better defender and needs dupe less (good for an immediate rank up). Lastly, horsemen mechanic > synergies.

    As a bonus, we haven’t even seen his max damage potential yet until the stryfe synergy becomes available.

    Nah... He plays him fairly, but still no perfect playing. He never exploits the falter, that’s an incredible source and I still didn’t see anyone using it properly.

    However, he shows that Prof X is a beast anyway. And for the sake of this poll, that’s the only thing that matters.
