Since Powers of X #4, some of the more tantalizing mysteries and riddles in X-Men comics can be found in Mister Sinister’s “Sinister Secrets” a gossip column found in the pages of various books.
Today I’ll answer:
- + What’s the meaning behind every Sinister riddle released so far in the Dawn of X?
- + What do the Sinister Secrets mean for X-Men comics in 2020?
- + Why Sinister Secrets has continued in the pages of Marauders and not the Hickman written X-Men.
