To be fair, Dark Reign isn't an event so much as a line-wide re-branding, similar to DC's One Year Later. There isn't an actual " Dark Reign " event; the closest we come to that is Dark Avengers, which is positioned as an ongoing. The other stories branded " Dark Reign " don't have to tie-in beyond being in the present-day Marvel continuity where Norman is in charge.

Contrast this to Civil War, which actually was an event in that it was a highly promoted mini-series dictating the directions of all its tie-ins ( and often doing so in a way that force writers to make apologies for, if not openly mock, Mark Millar's story ).
