Who should be Apocalypse's all new Horseman?

Provide reasoning for your choice and explain how they are different(if at all)after Apocalypse gets his hands on him.

The sometimes villanious Silver Samauri catches Apocalypse's ancient eye, more specifically his mutant tachyon sheathe, sharper than any razor, and his warrior pedigree.

After abduction,some brain washing and some augmenting mutation. Apocalypse has his newest War.

Now totally subservient to his regent Apocalypse. War is a mercurial master of martial mayhem. Capable of activating a tachyon sheathe that can extend into the sky like a skyscraper and capable of cleaving things in two at te molecular level. His argent,newly stylized,armor is equipped with sensory augmentation tech, sealed life support systems and rollerblade propulsion transport.

His sword is no longer a katana or wakazashi, which tied him to his old heritage,but a willow tree switch that serves as the foci for him to wrap his tachyon sheathe around. But any straight foci will do.

PS. This should have been my submission for the "Your Version" contest.

PSS. I would'a still lost to Cryo.

Namor

Wanda Maximoff

Iceman

Juggernaut

He would take Wanda's powers of reality manipulation to a whole nother level. She would be able to take it apart and put it back together with a mere thought.

Juggernaut would be souped up to the point where he COULDN'T STOP. Constantly laying waste to what ever was in front of him.

Iceman would no longer have a physical body. He would everywhere and nowhere, capable of causing an ice age if he chose to.

Namor would be the Leader, no longer would he lose strength the longer he was out of water. He could cause devastating tsunamis and control ALL water, including the water in the human body.

Thnx. I see him drawn by someone with a real dynamic style like Duncan Rouleau or real crisp like Brian Stelfreeze or both like Olivier Coipel.

Miraculously a reconfigured and revived Maggot finds himself in a hermetically sealed apparatus resembling an operating table, holding him prostrate. A large silhouette eclipses the bright light of the room and Maggot realizes he has escaped death only to experience torment. Aaaaaahh....

Apocalypse brings Maggot under his tutelage as well as Eany and Meany, But this tiome a round the mutated digestive system with sentience are capable of altering their size and mass. capable of growing collosal and eating entire city's and channeling the energy into Maggot's lithe frame or shrinking to the size of bacteria and eating someone inside out right under there noses.When they are not minimized and in Maggot's body he rides his technorganic mostrosities like a charater from Dune.

He incites global havok as Apocalypse's horseman Famine.

The remaining Stepford Cukoos were seemingly seduced by Apocalypse's offer for eminence in his oncoming new world order.Win in reality it was a coy ploy on their part to sabotage the machinations of the despot, but it was seen through and counteracted. The Cukoo's rarely inhabit their bodies seperately after Apoc's genetic/techno augmentation. NOw a days they wear one body corporately and that body is so brimming with energy that a telepathic torch floats above the body like a lit candle wick. The Cukoo's tuned up tri-telepathy has a tic. The Cukoos were tormented with deep hypnotic suggestion and neurosis like a virus were induced in them. So now anymind they contact has a high possibility of contracting an overpowering neurosis. The Cukoos are potent enough to telepathically invade a population of 1000's in one broadcast. The Cukoo's played right into Apocolypse's hands and became his new Pestilence.

PS. Even better sub in Typhoid Mary for the Cukoos.

Beckoning his servant Mister Sinister to his prescence Apocalypse requested the services of a mutant in Sinister's employ, one of his own Marauders, the scrawny korean kim Sung aka Scrambler.

Oddly enough Scrambler was very resistant to the "conditioning" engrammed by Apocalypse but he was eventually "won over". After emerging from the mists of advancement Scrambler's body is dipped in a physically augmenting body armor, and his entropy based scramble powers have new levels of capacity.

With a fanatical fascination with the myriad possibilities his entropy powers create in high powered organized systems , ie superhuman life and nuclear power plants. And now he is equipped with the durability and physical capability to evade a dangerous outcome.

Apocalypse has rounded out his horseman with his domino motifed Death.

And this finalises my version of the Horseman. feel free to grade them as a team or individually. Or even better add your own suggestions.

@Sling Shot:  
 
I'm gonna use some character not normally use
 
Death: Piecemeal given the ability to absorbed the remaining energy of the death manifesting their powers and when using in injury people slowly killing them.
Famine: Gorgeous Gorge give the ability to surround a person with his body an absorbed all their nutrients drying them out like a husk and increasing his own abilities.
Pestilence: Vincente give the ability to 'drain' people immune system leaving them complete open to any bacteria or virus, sort like giving you super dose of AIDS.
War: Post give the ability to upgrade his weaponry in order to kill and destroy those around him.

Famine: Chosen by Dracula, a vampiric Gambit's powers mutate to drain life energy instead of kinetically charge objects

Death: This Negative Zone-born Captain Universe doppelganger uses his Anti-Matter Enigma Force powers to bring death to the living in the most horrific ways imaginable. He has caused the annihilation of entire galactic clusters and has brought about the deaths of trillions of sentient beings.

War: With the full power of Cyttorak, the Asgardian Bloodaxe and The Ebony Blade at his disposal The Juggernaut has become truly unstoppable. He bathes now in the blood of a billion galaxies and traverses the Heavens and other realities altogether in search of more powerful adversaries to fight, a quest which has birthed some of the bloodiest and most vicious wars the whole of Creation has ever bore witness to into existence.

Pestilence: With every step she takes, Carmilla Black infects and spreads radioactive energy through the very core of all things in the Universe from blades of grass to the celestial light shone by stars like a plague.
 
Famine: Guided by the same all-consuming hunger that once plagued the now-deceased Galactus and his only daughter Galacta, the symbiotic lifeform known as Carnage ventures across the Universe draining entire worlds of everything he considers to be a viable and valuable resource including the souls of the natives and of the planets themselves, leaving nothing but large barren chunks of dirt and dust in his wake.

My Four Horseman 
 
War- Hellion: Genetically altered to not only have super awesome TK, but the ability to explode anything that comes into contact with his blood. Mwahaha payback. 
Famine- Rogue: Genetically altered to include a full life drain, i.e. Selene and Wither. Yeah I know she can absorb but it's much faster. Besides, Cyke deserves it. 
Death- Legion: Doesn't even need genetic alterations. It would just work so well :D. 
Pestilence-Psylocke: Cruel twist of fate. Altered to add the ability to increase negative emotions in others, reducing them to a vegetative state. 
 
Their appearances: 
Hellion: I took the blood thing from Darker than Black. A mask as cool as Hei's, maybe fangs or something, black leather trenchcoat too and definitely longer hair. Maybe in a ponytail. His skin would either be chalk white or red. 
Rogue: Blank white eyes like Storms, really long hair that wraps around her arms, the white part being much longer and useable as a weapon, a long green dress covered in blood, a feather boa maybe, and steel-toed boots. 
Legion: Haircut to short and totally matted, completely tattered clothing, broken handcuffs on all four limbs, long scar in the middle of his face, covered in blood, barefoot. 
Pestilence: Black, pitch black, Skin, nothing on but covered in purple fog that constantly moves around. Face barely visable.

Famine-Rogue-  Gambit is mortally wounded and Mister Sinister in disguise offers her a chance to save him.  Expanding her powers of life force draining she is able to revive Gambit but he comes back as a servant (almost vampiric).  She finds she is able to drain people of their life force while bring them into her hive-mind collective.  She is their Queen and they are her withered servants.  If they have super powers, they retain them but at a franction of their power while Rogue is able to call on them as she wishes.  Each of these "zombies" is able to drain energy from victims through physical contact.  As more people fall under her control she is exposed to their darkest secrets and emotions eventually corrupting her to Apocolypse's side.  She now dwells in an abandoned Mansion deep in the Louisianna swamps with her consort Gambit, waited on by her undead servants while her army of "zombies" rove the south converting more humans for her army.  Costume-She would wear a very southern gothic dress.  Black, frilly, cumberbun, torn sotckings and a parosol (extremely pale skin and black irises).  Gambit would wear a Southern gentry suit.  

  War-Magneto- After a lengthy debate/battle Apocolypse and Magneto ttrade their opinions on mutants and the future of the world.  Magneto, realizing that Apocolypse's beliefs of survival of the fittest and his belief of mutant superiority can go hand-in-hand, agrees to become his general.  In exchange Apocolypse augments his powers and the powers of his Brotherhood.  Magneto can now command metal absoulutely.  Drawing giant spikes out of Iron deposits in the earth, crushing tanks into baseball sized balls, drawing iron meteorites to rain down on foes.  His army would consist of a smattering of mutants drawn to him be another perk of his augmentation.  He is able to draw people to his army by merely speaking to them (an different kind of magnetism).  He goes to Latveria, crushing Doom in his suit of army until it was the size of a marble and establishes his base country of Genovia.  Costume-He would wear an all black military uniform with red accents (shoulder pads, trim) with his classic helmet but in all black with red edges. 
 
Death-Psylocke- After the dissappearance of Rogue, Psylocke is sent to track her down.  Through a series of psychological torments at the hands of Sinister, which ends in the murder of her love Angel, tricked into thinking he was reverted to his previous stat as Apocolypse's Death.  Mister Sinister had turned her own psychic powers against her making her own powers work against her, essentially putting herself through hell.  Once she realizes she has killed her lover, she literally becomes dead inside.  After augmentations she regains her old shadow teleporting powers and her signature pink telepathic/telekinetic energy turns black.  Her Katana is replaced by a giant, cackling energy Scythe; splitting atoms and killing any living organism it touches.  She becomes Apocolypse's personal assasin, able to enter peoples minds causing them to kill anything she wants, even themselves.  Costume- her "costume" is merely shadowy energy moving throughout her body.  When she uses her psychic ability she gains the butterfly affect on her face, but it is now black. 
  
Pestilence-Madrox- Captured by apocolypse, Madrox is experimented on endlessly to unlock his duplicating ability to create an endless army for Apocolypse.  After not being able to duplicate his power, Sinister instead allows Madrox greater control of his power.  Now able to replicate any disease in his body, he is able to inflict a minor illness on someone then causes it to overwhelm their systems by duplicating out of control.  He is also able to cause his dupes to explode in a cloud of plagues and infections.  Furthermore he is able to create microscopic duplicates of himself to tear apart enemies from the inside out or control their actions.  Lastly, he was given a unique healing factor that is able to store any disease he comes in contact with, protecting him from illness without destroying the germ itself.  Costume- His costume is similar to his normal costume.  A trench coat over a jumpsuit, but rather than his normal 6 spots connected with lines, these dots now resemble a bacteriophage (google it).  He now appears to have grime and mold growing on his body and followed by flies.  His dupes now appear more grotesque, exhibiting symptoms of whatever disease they carry.

Pestilence: Megan Gwynn 
Story: After the events of Age of X, Pixie decided to retain a few of her memories as Nightmare. However, she has increasing difficulting differentiating between her real, happy life on Utopia and her sadistic other existence in Fortress X. While her real life on Earth-616 is (relatively) more peaceful, she still finds herself missing her baddass existence as Nightmare. Taking advantage of this identity crisis, Apocalypse manipulates Pixie into joining his forces, promissing her peace and a life of meaning. In addition to enhancing her original mutant powers, Apocalypse strips the former x-man of the remainder of her soul, replacing it with dark magic (I know Apocalypse can't use magic, but maybe he gets a wizard on his side this time round, or something?) using it to transform her dagger into a new soul sword. Thus, the new Pestilence is born; a soulless killing machine.
Powers: Pestilence flies over cities, spreading her dust over several miles, resulting in mass hallucinations and widespread paranoia. In addition to providing her with advanced combat skills (and thus awsome hand-to-hand combat with Wolverine and Psylocke), the dark magic that replaced her soul grants her the ability to cast several different spells.  
Appearance: Bascially her Age of X appearance; Lavender skin, bat wings and all, with pure black eyes. Unlike the other horsemen, she doesn't have a horse but flies using her own wings instead (like archangel)

War: Jonothon Starsmore 
Story: Who better to lead Apocalypse's forces than one of his own decendents? When Clana Akkaba healed Chamber's damaged body, they left a psychic inprint on his mind. As Apocalypse begins to gain power, he takes control of Jono's mind, using Celestial technology to enhance his already formidible psionic powers. Thus, Jono becomes War.
Powers: Jono now has complete control of his powers, capable of creating remote blasts of energy in addition to powerful streams of psychic fire from both his hands and eyes. Fionally, he is able to explode his body and reform it at will, becoming a being of pure energy at will. 
Appearance: The celestial technology restored Jono's damaged face and neck, transforming his body back into the grey, blue lipped form he had immediately after his first transformation at the hands of clan Akabba. He wears a suit similar to Magneto, but in black instead of purple, with a red symbol of Akkaba on his chest, and without the helmet and cape. His psionic form resembles the original Proteus, with the symbol of Clan Akkaba burning on his chest. Unlike past horsemen, Jono rides a suped-up Predator X. That's right; War rides a Predator X!

I know this is late, but it's still a good topic!

War - Abomination

KGB spy training and already powerful enough to fight hulk WITHOUT any power ups.

Apocalypse decides to take make Abomination War due to how Hulk did before. Also, mind control would be unnecessary as he would want the power to kill Hulks. And Apocalypse, through use of his many contacts, would find out that Blonsky has inhuman DNA (which explains his being unable to turn human and the reptile look) that's been cancelling out the gamma form in certain areas. Using his tech, he takes the gamma stuff out of Blonksy, lets him go through terrigenesis, and then puts the gamma back in.

Abomination would look the same except with combat gear, power enhancing bracelets/anklets, and the new ability to breathe radioactive energy flames. Also, he would get the inhuman ability to gradually get stronger as he exerts himself (fighting, running, even sex). Plus he would be able to control his transformation, which is useful for infiltration. Plus he can use his inhuman ability together with his gamma form.

Famine - Selene

With psychic vampire powers and connections to the Hellfire club in order to take resources, she would be chosen as famine. She would accept this because of the power she would gain and the boost to her abilities.

She would wear her usual tight black clothing, but her skin would be somewhat gray due to the power up she got from Apocalypse which lets her drain multiple enemies at once without having to touch them, although its slower than when she does. plus she would gain a boost to her telepathic abilities so she would match (and with proper nourishment, surpass) Emma Frost.

Pestilence - Omega Red

His tentacles are radioactive and he has his patented and recently more powerful, death spores. He would accept Apocalypse's offer because Apocalypse can find the carbonadium synthesizer that he needs to survive using his resources. Plus, the power boost is very tempting as well.

He would get another set of radioactive carbonadium coils next to his current ones (totaling four) and a strength boost that makes capable of going toe to toe with heroes like Colossus or the Thing without even needing to drain life energy from others. Also, he would have the power to release diseases skin the same way his death spores do. This includes diseases meant to simply knock someone out, as well as diseases that cause excruciating pain (for his own enjoyment). And the added bonus of being immune to radioactivity and illnesses.

Death - Archangel (Uriel Worthington)

Apocalypse finds out about what happened to the original Archangel (Dark Angel Saga) and is noticeably upset. However, his Clan Akkaba scientist, failing to clone Archangel, are able to recreate his wings. These wings instantly kill anyone that Apocalypse attempt to attach them too. Then he found out Warren had kids. After the whole Uncanny Avengers saga with them, he make them fight each other to see who takes their father's place. Uriel wins and the wings accept him. This makes him the new Archangel.

The wings give him all of the powers and abilities that Archangel had during the Dark Angel saga. This also makes him increasingly cold, ruthless, and murderous. He also gains the ability to creating energy constructs of different weapons. And he gets training from Apocalypse so that he becomes the Archangel that Apocalypse always want Warren to be. This, along with the time accelerating ability that Kang gave him that can make centuries pass in seconds within a certain radius, makes him the strongest and most dangerous in Apocalypse's army, second only to Apocalypse himself.

Plus Apocalypse would give them all telepathic immunity.
