Quote: Dark Beast came back? Actually, come to think of it, isn't he supposed to be fearful of Sinister? I thought that his entire thing was that he came over to the 616 (I haven't read most of AOA.) to AVOID Sinister. Or maybe I'm wrong, but I do remember an issue where Sinister encounters the X-Men (And Dark Beast was impersonating Beast at the time.), and DB freaks out because he doesn't want Sinister to know who he really is. Who knows? What is Sinister planning here? Kidnapping kids seems kind of low for him (Not for the Dark Beast, though.).
Well, he didn't come to avoid Sinister as much as save himself from the reality wave. Sinister was seemingly dead by the time jumped the sinking AOA ship (yeahyeah he later returned in the 2005 AOA return). And AOA Sinister isn't really 616 Sinister.
But the two do not get along, at all, so seeing them together is weird.
As for kidnapping kids, isn't this basically Sinister being true to form? He's loved tormenting kids since Cyclops. He didn't run that entire orphanage just for Cyclops. He's supposedly been collecting kids for a long, long time. BTW, I'd love to know what was special about each and every one of those kids at the orphanage.
He had reasons for Cyclops and Nathan. He doesn't just go after kids,and to my knowledge, he has never done anything to any other kids. This sounds like a real step down.
