Apocalypse's Horsewomen

Just for an interesting exercise, if Apocalypse decided to recruit an all-female group from the X-Universe to be his next Horsemen, whom do you think should be picked? One take of mine:

Death - Moonstar
War - Jubilee
Pestilence - Husk
Famine - Karma

Mystique should be Death. She wears the skull belt already.

Neat idea...

Must think on the others...

Re: Apocalypse's Horsewomen

She was recruited in X-Men: Evolution, albeit as Pestilence, and had the ability to turn into multiple objects (such as a group of snakes). Storm served as Famine, Magneto as War and Xavier as Death.

Naturally the characters would undoubtedly have programming and enhancements from Apocalypse, but each of my choices I think is well suited based on their existing abilities. Moonstar could psionically project someone's emotional state as a real object, like their worst fear or greatest love, and also create psionic weapons by strongly desiring them. She gained other powers as well before losing them on M-Day, so depending on when she was "recruited" she'd be a pretty powerful incarnation of Death.

Karma I think would be a fairly powerful Horseman (Horsewoman? :lol) with her possession ability.

Storm should be in there imo, I could see her going nuts and brining natures fury down on some poor unsupecting soul.
Jean Greys already done the whole all powerful vengeful spirit thing so maybe we should skip her.
How about Psylocke, cos u now ninjas are cool. Right?

Re: Apocalypse's Horsewomen

I've thought about Rogue being Pestilence or Famine as well. I'll admit I'd tend to shy away from characters like Emma, Jean and Storm, if only because they're pretty powerful mutants in their own right when it comes to their respective powers.

Re: Apocalypse's Horsewomen

It's been a few years since I've followed X-Men, so I don't know all the characters, but how about:

Death - Storm (she can create natural disasters, even without enhancement)
War - Weapon X (she's a female Wolverine, right?)
Pestilence - Karma (spreads disease via the mind, like possession)
Famine - Rogue (sucks the life force from people, rather than powers and memories)

Re: Apocalypse's Horsewomen

I'd imagine Karma's innate ability would be a benefit to Apocalypse, since theoretically she could act as any of the Horsemen. She'd need distinct enhancements to augment it and actually act as whatever role she played, but as Famine for example she could possess workers at a food factory and force them to destroy the goods, or poison it.

Husk I think is a good candidate for either Famine or Pestilence, given her mutant ability (she can "shed" layers of skin and alter the composition of the new layer, thereby becoming stone or metal and so forth. She can also shed wounded layers and heal quickly, unless the wound is deep. Husk's counterpart in the Age of Apocalypse could create chemicals, liquids, gases, and even weapons like blades, and could choose to alter only part of her body).
