The Time Keeper's next reality they'll screw around with is a divergent of the reality where Wolverine became lord of the vampires, which diverged when Wolverine killed the Punisher during his purge of New York's hero's, meaning that he never lives to try to kill all the vampires. This reality's nexus is the vampirized Jean Grey.

Mr. Sinister makes quick work of the vampire kids and proceeds on his way. However, Goblyn Queen, Nastir'h, and S'ym start Inferno, transforming New York.

During the battle, many vampires die, including Sunspot, Dazzler, and Nightcrawler, but many more demons die, including S'ym, who is killed personally by Wolverine. The death of S'ym opens leaves the way open for the X-Vampire's to invade Nastir'h's realm. However, Dormammu suddenly appears, who kills Nastir'h and allies to Maddie, planning to expand their invasion across the multiverse. He then unleashes the Mindless One's on the X-Vampires, killing Cannonball, Iceman, Wolfsbane, Longshot, and Sabretooth, leaving Wolverine to call a retreat.

Sinister empowers the remaining X-Vampires, and they manage to beat back the Mindless Ones and invade the Dark Dimension. Dormammu enters the battle, with Madelyne facing off against Jean Grey.

You know, this comic might be kind of silly.

Is this why Marvel went bankrupt?

No, that was mostly Ron Perelman. Comics like this didn't exactly help, but Perelman bought Marvel, then inflated the comics bubble until it popped.

So, this is at part three of five of an event or storyline or both, and... not much has actually happened.
And really, when you're at the halfway point, something should've happened, rather than just watching what feels like just the set-up.
Frankly, Uatu and the Time-Keepers telling us and each other stuff isn't very interesting...

Also, the art looks kind of... Liefeld-y.
Is it Liefeld?
(Just saying, having the writers / artists credited in the tags would be a help sometimes...)

"It's Mr. Sinister! I recognise him from my childhood!"
In a perfect world, that really should've been followed by at least a panel of someone reacting to that.
It really should have.
Because, even knowing the context, that's still an utterly bizarre thing to shout out.

(Props to Sinister for using "galumphing" in cold blood. Rock on, Essex, you wild maniac, you.)

This comic holds a special place in my heart, because it's the very first What If...? comic I ever got.

I don't see how Wolverine makes much of a Vampire. His power is quite specifically tied into having a living biology, and most vampires seem to heal quick and me resilient anyway.

And I don't see how the adamantium skeleton can transform. Attempting to shift forms should be agonizing and grisly.

Hmm, would his skeleton simply drop to the ground when he turns to mist? That'd be great for a comedy routine or two.

Gotta love a villain who is just out there by his name: Mr. Sinister!

My early fan-theory was that he was an alias of Reed Richards.

Richards don't have a lot of faith in the general critical thinking of the marvel public, but does understand that branding works. Hence, the names.

Mr. Sinisters power set seems pretty doable for Richards in a battlesuit with his Psi-amplifier built in.

Richards complete lack of interest in mutation and mutants often struck me as peculiar, especially with Franklin being right there.

That would be fantastically sinister.
