Miss Sinister is a genius and a geneticist of the highest order, able to predict genetic mutations and splice DNA. She is also a master surgeon, mechanical engineer and a consummate manipulator.
Enhanced Abilities: Sinisters entire physiology has been enhanced her strength, durability, reflexes, endurance and intelligence have all been enhanced to superhuman levels.
Cellular Shapeshifting: Sinister has the ability to control every molecule of her body, allowing her to assume the form of any one she wishes.
Regenerative Healing Factor: Sinister is able to rapidly regenerate damaged or destroyed tissue with much greater speed and efficiency than an ordinary human.
Telepathy::Sinister can read minds and project her own thoughts into the minds of others within a radius of 250 miles. She can also induce temporary mental or physical paralysis, control the minds of others but only one at a time and psionically "turn off" the superpowers of any mutant.
Telekinesis: Sinister possesses telekinetic abilities enabling her to levitate and manipulate living beings, inanimate objects, and to some extent energy, psionically. She can also fire blasts of concussive force, erect a force barrier to repel and defend against incoming onslaughts and fly.
No stranger to experimenting on human life, particularly that of mutants, the nefarious Mr. Sinister prepared a fail safe for if he should ever be killed - he created a virus containing his own DNA (and thus his own immensely powerful telepathic powers) to be injected into a host. His chosen host was Claudine Renko, a previously unknown woman and one of his test subjects. When Essex apparently perished during Messiah Complex, the virus was automatically activated within Claudine. Rather than dying, mutating or becoming possessed, Claudine's body instead became a perfect genetic clone of Essex, albeit as a female. With this transformation Claudine also inherited her "father's" telepathy and in due course, wicked attitude towards innocent life. Taking the name Miss Sinister she became a new villain to foil the X-Men.
