MARVEL mainstay writer & new X-Men architect, KIERON GILLEN, is here to unleash a dark new twisted future for mutantkind crafted at the hands of MISTER SINISTER! This dark new alternate universe kicks off in the SINS OF SINISTER #1 one-shot out January 25th and continues across 3 alternate versions of on-going X-Men titles! The ‘Immortal X-Men’ become the ‘IMMORAL X-MEN’ – ‘X-Men Red’ will become ‘STORM & THE BROTHERHOOD OF MUTANTS’ – and ‘Legion of X’ will transform into ‘NIGHTCRAWLERS’ for a limited time following this new crossover series!
Get ready for classic Mister Sinister goodness! Nathaniel Essex finally has the power to recreate mutant life in his image and will condemn them to a fate even worse than anything seen in the Mutant Massacre or Messiah Complex!

WHAT’S THE SCOOP ON SINS OF SINISTER #1?
POWERS OF ESSEX! It’s the end of the world as we know it, and at least Sinister feels fine. For now. Can that last? Especially when we discover that he really is his own worst enemy… The universe-melting X-event begins here, in a horror timeline that makes Age of Apocalypse look like the X-Men Swimsuit Special. Join Kieron Gillen (IMMORTAL X-MEN, AXE: JUDGMENT DAY) as he kicks off the X-Men crossover Sinister has been planning since the beginning?and is going to have to see through to the bitter end.
From the name of the alternate X-Men titles alone, you can tell that future Sinister wants is, well… sinister!
Marvel has teased some of the outcomes of this twisted reality in the recent comic trailer including a Wolverine/Nightcrawler hybrid, a Captain America who’s DNA was spliced with Sinister’s and more! Each of the 3 new series will focus on a dark alternate timeline, starting at 10, then 100, then 1,000 years into this grim future!
And in an interview, series writer Gillen said “by the end of the thousand-year bit, it’s so apocalyptically grim that it’s gone straight into apocalyptically-grimly comic. It’s really horrific, some of the worst stuff that three pretty horrible people can imagine, but it’s got this enormous operatic grandeur to it. It’s a lot.”
And if that doesn’t get you hype for this new series, we don’t know what else to say! Except, expect true evil classic Minister Sinister goodness!
