Mr Sinister:

Who? Fans of the carton will be no stranger to Mr. Sinister. Sinister, a gifted geneticist, who was himself genetically altered by the ancient mutant Apocalypse. His powers included strenght, telepathy, flight as well as the ability to suppress the powers of other mutants.


Storylines: He was behind the scenes messing with the X-Men since Cyclops was a kid. He’s responsible for creating a clone of Jean Grey.

Sebastian Shaw

Perhaps a lesser known character to some, Sebastian Shaw was president of the notorious Hellfire Club, a wealthy organisation with designs on world domination.

Storyline: Shaw’s Hellfire Club was involved in the Dark Phoenix saga (in which the club is instrumental).
