Sins of Sinister

Kicking off the kind of alternate dark future storyline the brand is known for, Sins of Sinister begins the X-Men crossover event that focuses on the evil machinations of longtime villain Mr. Sinister whose plans of gaining control of the mutants of Krakoa beginning with Charles Xavier and Emma Frost, and later all of Earth including it's mightiest heroes.

Fans of Sinister may have some fun here with all the villain's monologuing but I'll admit to being a bit lost (and not caring all that much to try and figure out what the point of this ultimately might be). Although the crossover promises an epic story spanning a thousand years, none of the comics cross over outside of the X-Men comics into the wider Marvel Universe to any major titles. So despite the appearance of some Avengers here, I'd guess the entire episode will be largely ignored by the rest of the Marvel Universe.
