Apocalypse Gives Magneto Even Greater Powers in New X-Men Concept Art
X-Men: Apocalypse sees the X-Men face off against a more powerful villain than they've ever encountered before: the very first mutant. But not only is Oscar Isaac's Apocalypse powerful in his own right, he has the ability to enhance other mutants' powers, which makes his Four Horsemen forces to be reckoned with.

In this new concept art, Apocalypse gives Magneto a power boost, while two of his other Horsemen, Storm (Alexandra Shipp) and Psylocke (Olivia Munn), watch in the background.

Opening quote
"One of Apocalypse's many powers is he can imbue other mutants with greater ones," director Bryan Singer told EW. "Magneto is demonstrating a small taste of what he can do now. Magneto is already enormously powerful…. Now Apocalypse gives him powers far beyond what we've seen before."
Closing quote

Magneto, as we all know, has the ability to control magnetic fields, but there have always been limits to what he can do. Now, it seems that in Apocalypse, he'll have the ability to take down entire buildings, which will change the game considerably. 

X-Men: Apocalypse opens in theaters on May 27, 2016.
