X-Men: Apocalypse (2016)
Erik Lensherr: Who are you?
Apocalypse: Elohim, Pushan, Ra - I've been called many names over many lifetimes. I am born of death. I was there to spark and fan the flame of man's awakening, to spin the wheel of civilization. And when the forest would grow rank and needed clearing for new growth, I was there to set it ablaze.

Apocalypse: You are all my children, and you're lost because you follow blind leaders. These false gods, systems of the weak, they've ruined my world. No more.

Apocalypse: Everything they've built will fall! And from the ashes of their world, we'll build a better one!

Apocalypse: Together we will cleanse the earth for the strongest.

Apocalypse: All has been revealed.

Apocalypse: [sends the world's nuclear weapons into space] Always the same, and now all this. No more stones. No more spears. No more slings. No more swords. No more weapons! No more systems! No more! No more superpowers... So much faith in their tools, in their machines. You can fire your arrows from the Tower of Babel, but you can never strike god!

Apocalypse: You betray me?
Magneto: No. I betrayed them.
[attacks Apocalypse]

Magneto: Stay back. Whoever you are, don't try to stop me from killing these men.

Apocalypse: I'm not here for them. I'm here for you.

Apocalypse: It's over, Charles. You're finished. You're mine now.
Charles Xavier: You will never win.
Apocalypse: And why is that?
Charles Xavier: Because you are alone... and I am not.
[Jean Grey appears]

Apocalypse: [at Cairo] This was meant to be the center of the universe before I was betrayed. Now it will be.
[creates a pyramid]

[Psylocke brings Apocalypse to Angel, but sees Angel's wing is damaged]
Psylocke: His fighting days are done.
Apocalypse: No, they're not.
[fixes Angel's wings and turns them to metal]
Apocalypse: Rise, my Angel!

[reciting Apocalypse's message to the world]
Charles Xavier: This message is for one reason alone: to tell the strongest among you...
Apocalypse: Those with the greatest power, this earth will be yours!
Charles Xavier: Those with the greatest power... protect those without. That's my message to the world.

[psychic battle]
Charles Xavier: You're in my house now!
Apocalypse: [starts to grow] You'll need a bigger house.

Alex Summers: [charges after Apocalypse] Hey! Hey, asshole!
Apocalypse: All will be revealed, my child.

Apocalypse: [to Magneto] You will reach down, my son, deep into the earth. Rip everything they've built from the ground. Wipe clean this world, and we will lead those that survive into a better one.

Apocalypse: [catches Quicksilver] Foolish child.
[breaks his leg]

Apocalypse: [crafts a helmet for Erik] A gift, to honor your past life and your future role.
Charles Xavier: And what about me? Do I have any role to play in this madness?
Apocalypse: You have the most important role of all...
[straps Charles down on a table]
Apocalypse: Despite my long life, there is one thing I can not do that you can: be everywhere... be everyone.
Charles Xavier: No... no! Get out! GET OUT!

Apocalypse: [to Storm] My child, why do you enslave yourself?

Those who oppose me shall perish, through my agents of destruction!
