So we’re close to X-Men: Apocalypse’s release, and i personally can’t wait to see it. It’s gonna be amazing for sure. But, looking at the mixed to negative reviews, i’m kinda worried.But nevertheless, we got a pretty cool reveal and description for the after credits scene for X-Men: Apocalypse. Read it, right here:
We see a besuited man walking through the remains of the Weapon X clean-up programme, removing the blood, bodies and bullets. And a suited man retrieving vials of Wolverine’s blood labelled Weapon X. And placing them into his briefcase which contains other vials of differing colours. Slamming shut, it is labelled ESSEX CORP.
For those who don’t know what any of that means, it means we’re getting Mr. Sinister, who’s one of my all time favorite X-Men villains.
For people unfamiliar with Sinister, real name Nathaniel Essex, he’s a shadowy, calculating figure with superhuman mental and physical abilities. A scientific genius, he plans and schemes, manipulating those around him like a powerful puppetmaster.
He’s basically the Marvel equivalent of Littlefinger from Game of Thrones. Over the course of the comics, Sinister becomes obsessed with the Summers brothers, Scott in particular, and pushes them around like pawns on his personal chessboard. An appearance would make sense as the character was given his powers by Apocalypse. His debut would promise big things from future installments and give the X-Men a wholly different kind of enemy to face.
