As per a rumor by @DanielRPK, the new villain of an upcoming X-Men project could very well be Mister Sinister. Known by his Earth name Nathaniel Essex, the villain was essentially created by Apocalypse back in the 19th century, and Mr. Sinister has been living ever since. The rumor was shared on X (formerly Twitter) and people are indeed loving the idea.

With Mr. Sinister in the mix, fans couldn’t help but love the fact that the villain could be a part of their beloved MCU.

And there’s a very good reason why fans love Mr. Sinister and how he could save the MCU and the X-Men from failure. Going by the books, the character is very similar to Loki and if done correctly, Mr. Sinister could be the new Loki of the MCU (who is actually a villain).

Both characters have gotten their way through tactics of manipulation oftentimes and are constantly planning or scheming for a situation. Loki and Mr. Sinister are known for their shape-shifting abilities and quick-thinking skills to get the best out of a situation. Although there are similarities and differences between the two, the world surely hopes that the MCU will not ruin the character of Mr. Sinister.
