Mr. Sinister getting a little too much credit?

As this title says, does anyone else think that Mr. Sinister is behind way too much evil in the Marvel world? I'm starting to think he's the man behind my missing hair brush, black liquid eyeliners and red lipstick.

It seems like too many stories tie into him. I wouldn't mind seeing some new villains or seeing some other villains get a chance to be bad.

Sinister is a kick ass character. He's been around long enough, and is extremely smart. Why not? He knows more about the X-gene and cloning than anybody. I thi nk that marvel hasn't ever reveal half of the things that he's behind.

He's an evil mastermind. That's his thing. Now he's a hot chick in the Helfire Club...

I don't think so. He is just behind X-Related stuff, not Marvel has a whole.

First time I saw him was on an comic ad about the Inferno storyline drawn by Marc Silvestri and thought we was Colossus gone evil – after I discovered that wasn't the case I never was able to get into him.

Does marvel or their villains ever explain where they got their names from? How do you get Apocalyspe out of En Saba Nur?

I don't know but I can see how you can go from Egypt to the Bible, I guess. He's got his 4 horsemen. So that makes some sense. But, "Mr. Sinister". I bet Sinister isn't even his real last name. (^_^)

Um, of course it's not, it's Nathaniel Essex, have you not ever heard of him being called/reffered to as Essex? Besides, have you seen his visage, Mr Sinister is a pretty adept name for someone who looks like he does!

I might be wrong but I remember reading that his wife had told him that he was sinister after she found his lab. Then she died.

Is Apocalypse one of Selene's kids? They can both absorb energies of different types, right?

How powerful is Mr. Sinister's telekinesis?     %Pr

certainly not. Sinister is responsible personally for so much in the X-Universe that 
he has earned that credit. he screwed with Xavier. he screwed with the High Evolutionary. he screwed
with Apocalypse. he screwed with Phoenix. he screwed with Darwin (the man, not the mutant), and
on and on. if anything he deserves more, like being a shown threat to the entire Marvel earth itself (he
did erase everyones powers shortly, thats notable). even in another reality, he caused the most powerful
mutant possibly, X-Man to be, and riverbed to 616. and of course the Mutant Massacre. id love to see
a two to three issue with him Vs the Avengers in some fashion. Apocalypse also deserves to be more
relevant as well.

It's all in The further adventures of Cyclops and Phoenix but it should have been named the oringe of mister Sinister the art sucks but if you like Apocalypse ,Mr. Sinister or Cyclops and Jean it's a good read.

This is correct. I think it was revealed in the Jean Grey/Cyclops limited series.
 

Sinister Rules!

 He's one of my favorites. I'm not entirely sure why......... he just seems like a good mix between a horror movie monster and a mad scientist.

Well on intelligence Mr.Sinister is like a prodigy, as far as willing to commit himself to criminal and aweful acts he also goes to the extreme. The fact that he hold a certian amount of knowlage over the rest of mutant kind makes him even more crazy evil and a dick for not sharing the full extent of it.

Mr. Sinister was involved in the Weapon X Program, Black Womb Project, had collaborated with the Nazis during World War II and is responsible for the attacks on the Morlocks.  He sent his Marauders to kill them.            %Pr

the problem with mr sinister and marvel is that marvel isn't really using him correctly as a villian. he's a mastermind manipulator and most of the stories he's in he doesn't really show that off. you hear about how he did all this stuff but until messiah complex, he hadn't really gotten a good focus on him. then they decide to kill him off, make a female version of him that isn't really him and is very evil-lite and are now implying that yes it really is him but she just hasn't gotten his memories plugged in yet... that kind of crap.

Sinister's got his fingers in a lot of pies for sure but he's an interesting character with a lot of thought provoking qualities. Why not spread him around?
