A lot of people are speculating about who's gonna end up taking Norman out of power. Some think it'll be old rival Spidey, others think it'll be Iron Man getting revenge or Captain America coming to the rescue again. His "partners" seem like likely candidates too, since they all seem to hate him, judging by his portrayl in Thunderbolts and Dark Avengers. Or he might just end up screwing himself over- it wouldn't be the first time he ruined his career and his reputation just to get his kicks for a few hours flying around on a Goblin glider and blowing people up.

Quite frankly, though, I think the best way for Dark Reign to end would be for Norman to get his comeuppance from his oldest victim: The "Robot Master," Mendel Wardell Stromm. I recently heard that they brought Stromm back in the Penance one-shot, and I wouldn't expect them to bring up such an obscure and forgotten character unless they were planning to use him more in the future. And it would be the one ending practically no one would see coming.

Stromm was brought back during the Second Clone Saga in the late 1990s as Gaunt. Obscure, yes, but it has been done before and Stromm had been brought back as Osborn's lackey when he returned from the dead and was the leader of the Cabal of Scriers.

If it's Iron Man, then it'll probably be a battle of both fists and words where Norman reminds Tony about how he used him to shoot that Alantean official and that 42 and the cape killers were nothing more then quick fixes from a man who was panicking and thought being a brilliant inventor made him have all the answers while always making the problems worse. He also mentions that this Dark Reign was his creation and all Norman did was take over.

Tony then admits that Norman is right and that Captain America no doubt knew this would happen because he was always more down to earth then him and in the past he always tried to prevent him from going too far because of his arrogance.

Norman Osborn turns out to have been Mephisto all along.
It's what the Devil himself got out of OMD. Human form and ultimate power over the world from the corruption of character/soul of Peter. One the opposite of Parker. He already has Norman's soul in Hell anyway. Seemed like a good choice. Explains why his cabal of Evil are who they are. The Prince of Lies has promised them their hearts desires when he really wants to corrupt/destroy them.
Doom always fighting him for his mom's soul. Loki, the audacity that the Norse Deity claims to be a prince of lies. Namor, &White Queen...hmm, maybe the souls of endangered species currently like the mutants and the Atlanteans are a delicacy in Hell.
Why Ares is a member of his Avengers. A Lord of the Dead would respect a God of War.
All plausible reasons if this Norman Osborn were really Mephisto.

But alas, all MephistOsborn's schemes and plans are discovered and undone by Earth's heroes, aided by Magneto's daughter, Wanda Maximoff. Whose magicks undo everything Mephisto had done at the end of Civil War. Thus redeeming the Scarlet Witch, as well as earning the title of Earth's newest Sorcerer Supreme. Or first Sorceress Supreme if you will.


(Sure I realize undoing everything means Aunt May would die. But seriously, wouldn't you sacrifice the old goat to abolish OMD/BND?)

The best way is that Ben Reilly and Steve Rogers and stop the dark reign.

The two ways I wish this would end.

1. A spiderman Iron Patroit showdown: Nobody has been screwed more by normie then Spiderman. This would show the true hero in Spiderman.

2. The return of Captian America . Having steve rally the forces and have him yell the legendary words Avengers assemble would send chills down my spine. Cap being able to take down Iron Patroit showing the dumb americans who suppourted the SHRA mess who a true hero is. Bucky can take Jack monrue's name of Nomad.
