Apocalypse and Stryfe: Social Darwinists in X-Men!

X-Men had two villains who were really notorious Social Darwinists.  For them, they seek to weed out the weak and only the strong will survive.  These are the two examples:

Apocalypse is one of the most powerful foes in X-Men.  Whatever version he was in, cartoon or comics he is pictured to be one who believes that only the strong have the right to survive, that the weak shall perish.  He believes in weeding out humanity, testing new powerful mutants such as he did with Nathan Christopher Charles Summers (he infected him with the T-O Virus), who would later be Cable.  He believes that only the strong has the right to survive, which I believe he infected the infant Nathan to see if he was truly fit or not.  He was always aiming to be the most powerful so he can continue his doctrine of the survival of the fittest.  To further his goals, he even created the stories of "The Twelve" which was his ruse, so he can grab all the power he wants, use Nate Grey's body as his new shell and... to become even more powerful so he can continue to menace the world.  What is noteworthy is that he encouraged brutality and waged wars, just so to create a world only for the strong under his rule.

Stryfe is another.  Having been raised by the Askani's version of Apocalypse, he was rightfully named Stryfe.  He was raised according to the doctrine of the survival of the fittest, even to the point he resisted the merging process with the future version of Apocalypse.  Later, he ended up traveling in time to the present day, a man older than his supposed parents Cyclops and Madelyne Pryor.  He was the clone of Nathan Christopher Charles Summers, supposedly born to defeat Apocalypse but instead, raised in the ways of Apocalypse.  His most despicable action yet just to promote Social Darwinism was to launch the Legacy Virus INTO the world.  The Legacy Virus began killing a lot of mutants then humans followed.  He like Apocalypse would wage wars just weed out the weak in favor of the strong.

Either way, both of them are best destroyed altogether.
