With great powe ...comes great opportunity. With a pregnant girlfriend, a demanding mistress and an institutionalized mother to care for, Parker Robbins can barely make ends meet.

Norman Osborn sure is — and when his Dark Reign begins, Parker has a major role to play as a tough-talking crime boss organizing NYC’s super villains — while wheeling and dealing with the likes of Loki and Doctor Doom! But what price is Parker paying for his rapid climb up the ladder of infamy? And what terrible secret lies behind the source of his powers?

About the Author

The co-creator of Marvel’s Runaways, Brian K. Vaughan has written multiple Marvel limited series, including Chamber, Doctor Strange: The Oath, Hood, Mystique and Spider-Man/Doctor Octopus: Negative Exposure. Vaughan earned a reputation as one of the industry’s brightest talents on projects including Y: The Last Man, Ex Machina and the critically acclaimed graphic novel Pride of Baghdad, and continues to wow readers with Saga. Vaughan has earned multiple Eisner Awards for many of these titles, and for Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season Eight. He also served as a writer and producer on the TV phenomenon Lost.

Jeff Parker began his career as a comic artist and Hollywood storyboard artist. In 2003, he self-published the acclaimed graphic novel The Interman and began writing regularly, notably launching Marvel Adventures: The Avengers. Though the series was aimed at younger readers, Parker’s use of offbeat characters such as MODOK and Ego the Living Planet quickly developed a vocal and passionate following among all ages. Parker next revived a classic group of 1950s-era Marvel characters in Agents of Atlas, which quickly became the sleeper hit of 2006. Parker is one of Marvel’s most prolific writers; his credits also include X-Men: First Class and Thunderbolts.

Well-regarded as a modern master of the macabre, artist Kyle Hotz is best known for his uniquely creepy art style. Hotz first gained notice during the 1990s with extensive credentials on a long list of horror comics. Since then, he has gone on to illustrate Incredible Hulk, Ghost Rider and Venom for Marvel Comics, as well as The Hood in collaboration with writer Brian K. Vaughan. Hotz thrilled fans of the “living dead” genre with Zombie, a four-part limited series modernizing the classic ’70s-era Marvel horror character, and its sequel, The Zombie: Simon Garth.
