Comic book writer Matt Fraction has revealed that one of the main villains in Marvel's upcoming event Fear Itself will be a relatively unknown character - the villain Red Skull's daughter Sin.

When asked about Sin's role in Fear Itself, both Fraction and Senior Vice President of Publishing Tom Brevoort insisted that she may be one of the most important characters in the whole storyline.

"Sin's right there by page eight," Brevoort told Newsarama. "Sin, who's the new Red Skull that Ed [Brubaker]'s been building up in Captain America, has an enormous arc in Fear Itself and is in some ways one of the prime movers of it."

"By the end there is no doubt she is a better Red Skull than her father was," Fraction added. "By the end of this she's done things that her dad tried to do time and time again and failed."

Sin made her first appearance in Captain America #290 back in 1984, but remained relatively unused until Brubaker relaunched the character and charted her rise as the new Red Skull.

Fear Itself begins in March with a prologue issue before launching in full during April.
