X-Men: Mutant Apocalypse is a action platform fighting game published, and developed by Capcom exclusively for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System in 1994. This game is one of Capcom's earliest attempts to make a game using the Marvel Comics licensing; it is also considered an early CPS2 based game.

"Mutants are humans possessing incredible powers as a result of genetic mutation. Persecuted by their fellow man for being ...different.. In order to teach mutants to use their powers for the benefit of all, even those who hunted and feared them, Professor Charles Xavier created the X-Men. His ultimate goal: is to create a world where both humans and mutants can live together in peace. Genosha is a little known island where mutants are imprisoned, forced into labor by a brutal army and robot sentinels. There is one evil being whose evil mind has other, far more sinister plans in mind for those captured mutants of Genosha... the monstrous entity known as Apocalypse. X-Men, you must depart for Genosha and free our fellow mutants! Good luck."
- There was a game titled Marvel Super Heroes In War Of The Gems, which came out two years later (1996) that played in almost the same fashion as this game does, only (as the name suggests) players take on the roles of Spider Man, Hulk, Iron Man, Captain America, and also Wolverine (who plays exactly the same as he does in this game).
- Wolverine, unlike in some other games and media, does not heal in this game when hurt.
