X-Men Rogue’s Gallery: Mr. Sinister

With a name like Mr. Sinister (I tend to refer to him simply as Sinister), it can be pretty hard to take Nathaniel Essex seriously.  That would be a big mistake!

Chris Claremont intended Sinister to be the psychic projection of a mutant child who could never age.  Yeah, Claremont had some really wacky ideas.  But this particular idea was picked up by later writers and turned into something remarkable in my view – into one of the greatest X-villains, a character who’s crucial to the history of the mutant race… Continue reading
