Please don't rely on AoA this is the real deal.
Yeah. He's got that, plus his own technological enhancements to boost his powers. He's a sitting duck to Magneto.
And we know Magneto can work with the virus because he took apart the parts of Cable's body that were infected with it in Fatal Attractions, and he was able to manipulate Warlock (which his race, the Technarchy, is the source of the virus) and the infected Sym when he was with the New Mutants.

In the 616? The only time Magneto encountered him was during the The Twelve arc, during which Magneto had burned out his powers during Magneto War (The Twelve was when Magneto discovered he could use Polaris to cover up for him) and at the same time, Apocalypse had appropriated a bunch of X-Men's powers and set the Living Monolith on a rampage. That's the only time they have run into each other.
The show down I am waiting for Magneto vs. Sinister (proviso Sinister somehow makes it out of the Messiah CompleX). Sinister organized the Mutant Massacre, which Magneto was with the X-Men during the recovery from that (Storm wouldn't let him go down into the tunnels, big mistake on her part). It was also recently revealed that Sinister had been active in the Holocaust camps, experimenting on prisoners attempting to catalyze the mutant gene (though since Magneto has never met Sinister, he may not have put that 2+2 together, though he would if he met him.)
So there is a reckoning waiting.

That's why I said, if he makes it out of the Messiah CompleX.
I just have a really hard time with Carey's writing, he keeps warping character to make the situations fit. Like Scott going off half cocked and sending out a hit squad to kill Cable. There is no way in hell Mystique should have been able to take him out like that. And for a villain that big to go out that anti-climatically.
My hope is that his death is so anti-climatic because he is isn't actually dead.
I know a lot of folks love Apocalypse for being bad *ss and all, but Sinister is waaay more dangerous and waaay more evil. And frankly, way more interesting.

" @Lance Uppercut: LOL. No Magneto can not teleport. Magneto also is not a telekinetic. "No, you said Apocalypse can fly. I was stating that Magneto could as well. Your second statement is also incorrect, as he is technically a telekinetic, but in the broadest sense of the term. He has manipulated more then just metal (plastics, ceramics, etc.)
"@cracks: Not just the electromagnetic spectrum, but also gravity control, radiation control, subatomic control, time-space control. Magneto is far more versatile than Apoc, and he has only just begun to discover his abilities. Apocalypse would be hard pressed to survive entombment in the molten metal of the Earth's core, or being thrown into the sun, or having his molecules dispersed on a subatomic scale into space, or being thrown into a black hole, or any of the other horrific things Mags can do. "
I can not believe there are people that still think Apocalypse would win.............
" @Jx4gz: LOL. The table. That cracks me up. Also does Magneto have complete control over the four fundamental forces of the universe? "
" @cracks: Maybe, but only with prep. Mags has more power, and more versatility and in general I'd say Mags should take a solid majority. Right now Apoc is not a planetary threat without technology and planning. Magneto is a planetary threat at least, and that's only with his powers, not including prep, or tech which he has a natural knack for building. "Bull.
