X-Men vs. the Hellfire Club?

Now that Kevin Bacon has been confirmed as the villain in X-Men: First Class, speculation has begun as to what mutant the Baconator will play. Mister Sinister and Shadow King are names that have been thrown around online lately, but no official announcement has been disclosed. Forces of Geek, however, is claiming that he'll play supervillain Sebastian Shaw.

Sebastian Hiram Shaw is the leader of the Hellfire Club, a secret society of X-Men adversaries. He possesses the ability to absorb kinetic energy around him and turn it into brute strength. For more on Shaw check out IGN's list of the Top 100 Comic Book Villains of All Time, where he's ranked at #55.
