In Mr. Sinister's apartment, he spoke to a Lord Apocalypse which was a stuffed effigy, but while Sinister was imprisoned in the Triskelion, Apocalypse appears to Essex and commands him to choke himself. In "Magnetic North", Sinister mentions that "A child is coming. The master will be reborn", referring to Apocalypse.
At some point after, Sinister is found dead, suffocated by his own shirt crammed into his throat (presumed a suicide). In the "Epilogue of Sentinels" story arc, Cable says he will be training Xavier to fight something he couldn't defeat in his timeline. When asked what is he going to fight, Cable responses "Don't worry Xavier--you'll find out soon enough." while a gigantic statue of Apocalypse is seen.
Sinister returns to life to herald the coming of Apocalypse. He completes his mission of killing ten mutants, five of which are from the Morlocks, the other being Angel. Sinister then transforms into Apocalypse. The X-Men and the Morlocks appear and fight Apocalypse, but are unable to stop him. Ultimate Apocalypse in this battle displays telekinetic feats, instantaneous healing and immunity to harm, as well as mass manipulation of other mutants, making them fight each other. He may have even gone as far as to strip Wolverine of his abilities. Apocalypse states to the X-Men that "You've seen but a shadow of my abilities". As S.H.I.E.L.D. attacks Apocalypse, his body transforms into a cyborg-like form. Apocalypse could have the ability to alter his body according to what attacks him.
While Apocalypse is able to repel all attacks with ease, Xavier (Onslaught outfit) and Cable (Stryfe outfit) say they're too late, but Cable is confident. Xavier almost immediately reveals who he is to Jean while Apocalypse beats S.H.I.E.L.D. agents.
Meanwhile Jean is momentarily shocked about the professor being back, and Jean, Cyclops, Toad, and Iceman are no longer in Apocalypse's control due to Xavier's honed abilities. As the Fantastic Four unsuccessfully try to hold off Apocalypse, Cable reveals that he and Bishop were in it together all along and that Professor X is the key to stopping Apocalypse.
At the end of Cable's explanation, Wolverine jumps in and tells them all to start fighting. Professor X and Jean share a tender moment on a rocky peak, then Professor X tells her what to do and Apocalypse jumps in.
Xavier tries to wipe out Apocalypse psychically, but Cable's plan backfires as Apocalypse somehow resists. Apocalypse destroys Xavier's helmet and gives him a bloody nose. As Apocalypse is about to kill Cable, Xavier futilely attempts to prevent it with the use of his enhanced telekinesis.
As Apocalypse is about to kill Xavier, Jean begs the Phoenix Force for help. Before being unleashed, The Phoenix Force tells her that it knew she would eventually beg for the power of the Phoenix. Unleashed, The Phoenix Force declares: "I AM FREE! Now you face the wrath of Phoenix!" The Phoenix then attacks Apocalypse, releasing Xavier.
Apocalypse, preparing to face his opponent, senses great power in Phoenix, both mutant and otherwise, which he then tried to obtain for himself. Phoenix merely taunted his efforts, stating that he is facing a god and a force of the universe, before blasting Apocalypse with a small fraction of her power.
Apocalypse's armor begins to melt as he tries to hold on, causing him to lash out in desperation at the Phoenix, causing her to unleash the full might of the Phoenix Force against Apocalypse. Despite Apocalypse's resistance, her powers soon overwhelm him, and he begs her to stop; she complies, and Apocalypse's armor shatters, revealing Sinister's form.
Months after the Ultimatum Wave, Sinister returned, as well as, apparently, Apocalypse.
