Hey! I was wondering what were the best X-men stories that featured Mr. Sinister? I'm still a bit behind in reading the older X-Men comics, even though I've pretty much read a good bit of them, but I haven't read many stories with Mr. Sinister in it.

@rabbitearsblog: y'know, even though Sinister is one of my favorite X-men villains, I don't think I like most stories he's in. It's almost like he makes bad stories more interesting by being in them or something.

I did enjoy his origin story in The Further Adventures of Cyclops and Phoenix (4 issue mini series), though.

And, honestly, he was probably the most interesting part of Gillan's Uncanny X-men (vol. 2). I think the issues of that series that had him in them were the only ones I didn't leave at the laundromat.

Lol. Gillen's entire run was a dedication to Sinister, as he received more character development than anyone else in that series, save for Cyclops. Start from there if you're looking for anything recent.

Oh, and, Inferno. But you'll get mixed reviews on that one.

He really was the highlight of the entire series, for me. It's just too bad that wasn't saying more.

I'll give Gillen's Sinister the nod as he literally had a Sinister themed orchestra while working over the extinction team.

They should have given the guy a Sinister solo to write instead of further desecrating an already damaged flagship.

Messiah Complex and Uncanny X-Men Vol.2 by Gillen.

In terms of general presence, Age of Apocalypse (1995).

Inferno, as has been stated, has mixed reviews, however, it's sort of a classic X-story. X-Cutioner's song, in which Sinister also features, is viewed as a disappointment by many X-fans. I think this is mainly due to what it was promising as a story when it was released; in retrospect, it's not a bad story, it just didn't live up to fan's expectations.

@rabbitearsblog: His first appearance in Uncanny Xmen 221 was pretty good and also features the Marauders. Like some people mentioned, he appears with his Nasty boys in Xfactor 74/75. Inferno was a decent crossover he played a major role in, and I really enjoyed the X-cutioner's song story arc which featured him, Stryfe, and Apocalypse (along with the MLF and Dark Riders). I would also check out Xmen Endangered species and Messiah Complex. Also Cable and Deadpool 17 features an interesting fight between him and Deadpool!

X-cutioner's song was the first X-men stories I read, and I was so super confused about what was going on. I knew the X-men from the Marvel Superheroes Secret War, so I had no idea who almost anyone was. But, even despite that, and maybe because I had no expectations, I really enjoyed it. I've reread it since, and I still think it holds up.

I wanna say Mutant Massacre, but he was barely even in it. Mostly plays behind the scenes.. It was a good story though, and dark.

He's not in it all. He was even designed yet.

I like the story of the Madelyne Clones. It was a good plan on Sinisters part.

This is honestly a problem I have with Mr. Sinister. He's held in such high esteem by the fan base, yet has been in few, if any great stories.

He's basically a spikey, cool looking 90 cized version of the High Evolutionary for kids who liked Spawn and Venom.
