The Sisters of Sin are fictional characters appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The Sisters are a group of female supervillains, so-called because their original costumes were distorted versions of the traditional clothing of Roman Catholic nuns.

Fictional team history[edit]

The Sisters of Sin are the leaders of a quasi-religious cult that promotes hatred and violence, and were formed by the Red Skull. The sisters were young disciples of the Skull, including his daughter who became known as Mother Superior, and the Skull used advanced science to rapidly age them to adulthood.[volume & issue needed] The other women took on the names Sister Death, Sister Dream, Sister Pain, and Sister Pleasure. The Sisters fought Captain America and Nomad (Jack Monroe), but were defeated.[volume & issue needed] When the Red Skull appeared to have died in a clash with Captain America, the Sisters were restored to their original ages.[volume & issue needed]

Later, Mother Superior's nanny,Susan Scarbo (formerly known as Suprema, and now calling herself Mother Night) reformed the Sisters of Sin and became their new leader.[volume & issue needed] Mother Night restored the girls to artificial adulthood, and they took on new names: Mother Superior became Sin, Sister Dream became Hoodwink, Sister Pleasure became Raunch, Sister Pain became Slash, and Sister Death became Torso. The Sisters again came into conflict with Captain America and were defeated.[volume & issue needed]

During the Fear Itself storyline, Speedball has an encounter with the Society of Sin in St. John's, Newfoundland.[1]
