, Mikhail was one of the Russian mutants that opposed Apocalypse's invasion. He killed War, one of the Horsemen of Apocalypse. However, Apocalypse was impressed by Mikhails's victory, prompting him to capture and brainwash Mikhail. Mikhail became a Prelate and one of Apocalypse's Horsemen, and turned his powers into himself, significally altering his physiology and appearance. The land that was delegated to him is a significant portion of mid-eastern North America. Mikhail surrounded himself with human servants, the survivors of his Upsctarts Program, which turned ordinary humans into cyborgs under his control, and employed the Stryfe Force as his personal army. At his side was his majordomo Keeper Murdock (the AoA-Daredevil), who served Rasputin out of personal gratitude, as he believed his powers were the product of Rasputin's Upscale Program. Another of Mikhail's human allies was Bruce Banner, a scientist seeking to mutate himself, who obtained a supply of mutant test subjects in exchange for his aid.
Rasputin abandoned North America and approached the Human High Council with an offering of peace, which he didn't intend to fulfill. The Forgotten Horseman, as he was nicknamed, captured the Council Agents aboard his ships and planned on murdering the Human High Council leaders. His plan was to assume control of all Europe using the amplified powers of Empath to manipulate the emotions of all humans. However, the Council agents took control of Rasputin's fleet. Mikhail was stopped from murdering the Council leaders by Donald Blake, who apparently killed the Horseman by pushing him out of the Big Ben, at the cost of his own life.
