Could someone please inform me who the characters are on the Four Horsemen? Archangel is pretty obvious to me, but I'm not at all familiar with the others. I'm putting together a comprehensive list characters in the game, so it's useful to be able to specify.

I don't think the identities of the other 3 horsemen were specified it the original story arc. They were all referred to by the biblical names as on the cards.
Technically Warren Worthington III used the alias Archangel only after he parted with Apocalypse (so Angel -> Death -> Archangel).

When I ran a search on the Marvel Wiki though, I found multiple characters using those names, such as Bruce Banner taking the name War.

Hey, buddy, can you spare a role?

I jotted it down in my Risk campaign book. I always used to do that so I could replay my moments of glory over a glass of brandy in the sleeping quarters.

In the new X-Men movie adaptation they are Storm, Psylocke, Angel, and Magneto. But that may no be what you are looking for.

That depends on which incarnation you are talking about.

The original modern ones are:

Abraham Kieros (War)

Autumn Rolfson (Famine)

Plague (Pestilence)

Warren Worthington III (Death)


There have been numerous incarnation over the years, and later on some were even added to the past. Not to mention the recently released movie.

Over the years, Apocalypse has appeared with many different characters playing his four horsemen.

The incarnation that included Angel as Death (for the first time) also included Plague (from the Morlocks) as Pestilence, a soldier whose name I don't remember for War and a mutant girl from Cleveland as Famine (Autumn R something if I remember right).

Other know iterations included

Caliban as Death
Hulk as War
Wolverine as Death
Caliban as Pestilence
Rory Campbell as Famine
Gazer as War
Sunfire as Famine
Polaris as Pestilence
Gambit as Death
Psylocke as Death

I'm specifically referring to the versions depicted on the cards in this game. I'll look into the names you've all listed when I'm off work. Thank you.
