In a disturbing new trend, Marvel seems to be slapping on a pair of breasts and injecting massive amounts of estrogen into some of its more popular villains. In a bid to add what seems to be Marvel's idea of freshness to a character and its' rogues, Loki, Bullseye and Mr. Sinister have all gone tranny on us.
Loki, as it were, is a reincarnation of the classic that we've all come to know. As Thor is restoring Asgard and its inhabitants to rural mid-west America, Loki is reincarnated as female. An eyebrow-less female, no less. The Trickster God is still as she was once, conniving and manipulative, only now it comes more naturally.

Miss Sinister (should have been Mistress Sinister) is seemingly a DNA induced rebirth of Mr. Sinister. Apparently when he was choosing which carriers to house his DNA in, he had it in the back of his mind that he would like to know how it felt to wear frilly underwear and know what boys want.
