      For God's sake...do Marvel events actually f***ing END anymore?



    Quote:
    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.


That's true, but at least w/ DC's One Year Later you eventually caught up w/ the new status quos and found out what happened in the off year, and they moved on; while Dark Reign is an outgrowth of a completed event arc(Secret Invasion), it's still setting up changes that other titles have to deal with due the nature of Marvel's shared universe.

    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 ).
