Checklist: Dark Reign – The List

July 7, 2009 2 comments

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.

darkreign_thecabal_01In an attempt to maintain his stranglehold on Earth following the Skrull Invasion, Norman Osborn invited Doctor Doom, Emma Frost, The Hood, Namor the Sub-Mariner and Loki into his inner circle. Now a number of fan-favorite creators provides readers with new perspectives on this uneasy alliance with Marvel Comics’ Dark Reign: The Cabal (FEB092492D, $3.99; FOC 04/09/09). Writers Jonathan Hickman, Matt Fraction, Peter Milligan and more are joined by top artists like Adi Granov, Kyle Hotz and others to present five stories in this special, each putting a different member of this new group under the spotlight as never before. Readers will finally learn what each one is looking to get out of their membership in this syndicate, and how they are prepared to deal with any trouble their colleagues might create. The 48-page, full-color special is slated to ship with a cover by Marvel “Young Guns” artist Daniel Acuña on April 29.
