Is apocalypse a character that benefits from as many levels as possible?

As I am trying to decide how to deploy my LT pulls before KM enters the pool, I am wondering what my overall strategy should be for apocalypse. Yelena is currently sitting at 1/3/5 + 1k shards. champing her would be nice as she seems to have some real value as an ap suppressor in cl10 (or boss events), and might even become PVP viable if they ever fix her purple or if an ideal partner comes out. But my apocalypse is already at 12 covers and will be fully covered with shards before he leaves the LT pool. Onslaught does not particularly interest me and I am unlikely to chase him. KM does seem a bit more interesting to me, but I likely still have time to grind PVE and PVP to cover him if that seems worthwhile.
Is apocalypse a character that rewards soft-capping (e.g., so that other 5*s can tank for him but you can still use his strong offensive abilities)? or is he more like okoye where every additional champ level is worthwhile? I am not quite sure how to treat him. His high health is clearly part of his appeal, but his high match damage will make him tank an awful lot, and means that soft-capping him below older 5*s would also mean significantly lowering his damage output. On the other other hand, he doesn't have any healing (or even much defense as the main point of his protect tiles is to fuel his black), so hiding behind some other 5* like okoye will definitely save on healthpacks.
