Will you choose to fight alongside the X-Men and the Brotherhood or fall in line under Mister Sinister’s command? Make your choice as Mister Sinister officially makes his way to Kabam’s Marvel Contest of Champions.

Nathaniel Essex, a scientist in the latter half of the 19th century, pledged loyalty to the mutant-demi god Apocalypse in exchange for activation of his dormant X-Factor.
