The Dark Reign’s End

This week marks the end of Osborne’s dark reign as the Siege # 4 is set for release Thursday.

The dark reign concludes in Siege # 4, Avengers Finale, Fallen, and Dark Avengers # 16.

Dark reign’s premise, many would say, has been done before. But the reason why this particular ‘re-take’ on this angle appealed to me is because it showcased great heroes with their backs against the wall.

Dark reign posed a great challenge to Marvel U heroes. It’s not about beating a 60-foot giant or stopping an alien horde. It’s about them trying to save people who don’t want to be saved by them. It’s about getting flak for not reporting to their villain-rival who is now in power.

Dark reign was an everyday threat to them. By merely wearing a mask, heroes have put their integrity on the line.

It may be ironic that I like heroes who are more human than heroes (heroes are meant to be above us). But it’s all because it makes it easy for me to relate to them. Easy for me to be inspired that I can do some kick-ass goodness too. Easy for others to hope that they are more than they think they are.
