DARK REIGN LIST AVENGERS ONE SHOT

Written by BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS
Pencils & Cover by MARKO DJURDJEVIC
In this first in a series of spectacular one-shots, the finest writers working at Marvel are teamed up with the most sensational artists to unveil the darkest chapters in the Dark Reign! Norman Osborn, fresh from the shocking finale of Utopia, sets his sights on the rest of the Marvel Universe. He sits down and makes a list. A list of things that are wrong with the world. Things that he needs to take care of. And the list includes almost every major player in the Marvel Universe.
