Checklist: Dark Reign – The List


This autumn, Norman Osborn plans on making a list, checking it twice and delivering an unhealthy amount of DARK REIGN madness directly into the lives of super heroes both naughty and nice in DARK REIGN: THE LIST, a series of eight interconnected one-shots heralding the next major chapter in the Marvel Universe’s current saga.

[Norman] composes a To-Do List—a list of things, not necessarily people to be targeted, but situations that have to be dealt with or addressed in one way, shape or form,” explains Marvel Editor Tom Brevoort about the concept behind the one-shots. “In the course of each of these stories, different characters will become involved, not because they’ve specifically been targeted but because a particular objective on Norman’s list falls within their sphere of activity.

The idea spins directly out of the events of the crossover between DARK AVENGERS and UNCANNY X-MEN beginning in July. The fallout from that story spurs the Norman to address what he views as serious concerns throughout the Marvel U. Although a different writer and artist team lend their capable hands to each of the eight one-shots, all feature the overarching theme of Osborn’s agenda by representing one element on the former Green Goblin’s list.

It’s a way of doing an event that’s not the kind of crossover that we’ve done for the last couple of years,” says Brevoort. “Events still work and people are still interested in them, but we’ve been doing them all in the same way with the same kind of style. So, maybe that’s a little played out and we should switch things up a little bit and try to hit the same kind of notes and do the same kind of universe-changing stories, but do them differently.

    Hi I would like to know does anyone have a checklist of how many Dark Reign graphic novels or Trade paperbacks you have to get to understand the story because there’s too many comics you have to get so I stick with getting the story out of one book the graphics or trades.
