Amazing Spider Man – Shed | Comics
Famous Reptilian scientist Doctor Curtis Connors is the man also known as the former super-villain Lizard as well as a teacher of Peter Parker, is now a widower, working in a pharmaceutical industry, is broken and slowly losing control from the stress of life and a non-stop trash talking boss. When his entire barrier of endurance broke to keep his reptilian persona in check, a monstrous Lizard is unleashed again! Spider-Man was patrolling with Black Cat, then upon hearing the news of the Lizard’s rampage, he quickly reached to the spot as soon as he could. He confronts him to stop Kurt Connors from rampaging through the city and to save the innocent bystanders from harm’s way.

With all those years of changing into the other grizzly persona of a cold-blooded reptile and experiencing a few horrific mutations, Lizard has grown monstrous, stronger and grimmer than ever. It has changed into a new devilish form, which Connors has a very limited control over, calling itself The Shed. It is known that under the influence of the reptile, Curt Connors only possesses intellect of an average man but what the other did not know now is that this time Connors has perfected the serum responsible for his transformation to the level where he can have control over both his persona and powers at the same time. Even after his best efforts, Spidey fails to save Kurt's son Billy Connors at the foster case from his own father's monstrosity and may be this time, it won't be easy stopping the reptile monster, since his humane side is lost in the abyss.

Siege – Dark Avengers | Comics

Norman Osborn is trying to keep his Dark Avengers together from falling apart and succumbing to his Green Goblin persona.

Shortly after being agreed to work with Norman Osborn and joining his Dark Avengers, Noh-Varr was enlightened by Ms. Marvel that these are just criminals and madmen he has surrounded himself with before leaving. Confused and looking for guidance, he built a device to communicate with Kree Empire and roaming in disguise.

Curious to learn more about human behavior, he approaches a girl on street named Annie and starts talking but is soon interrupted by arrival of The Sentry, who is sent here by Osborn. They two collide and Marvel Boy seems to have a tough time dealing with the Golden Guardian but he eventually manages to escape with help from Annie.

He later establishes contact with Kree Supreme Intelligence and is told to become a savior of Earth. He then received a new costume with a set of improved Nega-Bands and dubbed as Protector. When a search party came looking for him, they couldn't sniff him out in any way and Noh-Varr came to secretly meet Annie in an alley.

Back in Avengers Tower, Ms. Marvel saw Sentry arriving while everyone was having a breakfast. In his watchtower, Bob arrives to find his wife Lindy already pointing an alien gun at him and got his head blown off completely. He regenerates back to life right away as Void takes over his body and quickly prevents her from taking her own life.

Robert assumes control over him in time to stop him from doing so while trying to remind their deal of not touching her. Bob tries to hurl himself into sun itself but his body regenerates again and Void takes control. He returns to Earth, hovering over city of Manhattan spreading his dark tendrils all over and causing massive destruction.

Fearing Norman to slip into his Green Goblin persona, his secretary Victoria Hand tries to convince him to see a psychotherapist. She goes to handle a lewd situation regarding Bullseye and Moonstone next when they all see an unearthly darkness slowly engulfing the sky and buildings of New York starts getting wrecked by it.

Suiting up promptly, Osborn tries to reason with Bob pointing out that if he keeps throwing tantrums like this, people who are capable of neutralizing him would surely come after him. Sentry then dials down his temper and Norman sees a terrified Lindy Reynolds looking at them from Watchtower, deducing her to have caused this.

Later that night, he goes to see Lester in his room and tasks him to take care of her in time of his choosing. After one of Cabal's secret meetings goes wrong when Doctor Doom is threatened by Osborn and blasted off by Void. He then unleashes a locust swarm upon them and everyone in Avengers Tower is instructed to evacuate quickly.

Victoria Hand was seeing to lead everyone out while Bullseye managed to fly Lindy on a copter and complete his task. By the time he arrived back, Bob has dealt with Doom by then and asks where his wife was. Hearing that she has committed suicide by jumping off to sea because of being scared of him, Robert immediately flips again.

It took all of Ares and Iron Patriot just to keep him away from Hawkeye before Sentry decides to go over and find her. Victoria sees Bullseye giving a subtle nod to her boss on his way out, which gives her a clear idea of what has just happened.

To wrap up Dark Avengers series from Marvel Comics, writer Brian Michael Bendis (Mighty Avengers – Secret Invasion, Mighty Avengers – The Ultron Initiative) teams up with artist Mike Deodato Jr. (Amazing Spider-Man – New Avengers, Amazing Spider-Man – Sins Past) to work on its final storyline and tie-in for "Siege" crossover event.

This one marks final arc for the comic-book monthly ongoing following "Dark Reign" crossover from earlier and reflects on many recent events the team has faced so far, including their disbandment.

Final Fate of Sentry

A long kept and not-so heroic secret about true origin of Sentry from his clouded past is finally revealed by his beloved wife Lindy. Majority of final arc is focused on him and his gradually worsening fractured psyche that keeps losing grip over reality. It ultimately became a huge problem during siege of Asgard and lead to serious causality.

Osborn's fall from power also reinstated old team of New Avengers out of hiding now that Steve Rogers is running things. Though many of Dark Avengers members are apprehended by law enforcement, Daken has managed to sneak away. A brand-new direction for heroes and villains of Marvel starts from here to an unforeseen future.

Dark Reign – The Sinister Spider-Man
 | Comics
Previously known as the second-string villain Scorpion, Mac Gargan, have bonded with the alien symbiote Klyntar and became the third host, and the second Venom. Now on the Dark Reign period, he took the place of Spider-Man in Norman Osborn's Dark Avengers as Sinister Spider-Man. With the traditional super heroes out of the scene, Gargan is perhaps having the best time of life as people sees him as a celebrated hero and they also thinks him to be the actual Spider-Man. Though Osborn has a positive image of him and his team to maintain, Gargan goes out to play hero when he met another second string villain General Wolfram robbing a bank. He stops Wolfram with almost no effort at all, to impress by standing girls to take out and steals the money of loot from Wolfram after chewing his hand off for no apparent good reason.

He then goes to a stripper club to spend the loot, where he found a stripper to fall for named Cherri and then calling her Candy, Gargan took her with him to the Avengers Tower. But upon having a conversation about his reckless behavior with Osborn, he kills the stripper later and set her body to the apartment of J. Jonah Jameson; Mayor of New York City, to frame him. As Jonah approached Osborn regarding the matter, Gargan is sent to help him up. Meanwhile, a group called “The Redeemers” visits Wolfram to join them along with The Redeemer, Hippo, Doctor Everything, Dementoid and Eleven; villains who formerly lost limbs to the Sinister Spider-Man and wants revenge on him.

New Avengers – Search for the Sorcerer Supreme | Comics

Although Doctor Strange is back, a search for his new successor begins with The Hood seeking his powers.

Now that Tony Stark is not Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. anymore, New Avengers are on the run because Norman Osborn is in charge of everything. Aside from running a new task force H.A.M.M.E.R., he has assembled his own version of "Earth's Mightiest Heroes" with their twisted and villainous counterparts as Dark Avengers.

Some heroes went underground and many like Clint Barton AKA Ronin became vocal about their opinion on Osborn in public. When his team tries to choose a leader, Barton is elected and he picks Ms. Marvel as his second-in-command. They ask for Spider-Man to share his real identity with them and he reluctantly does so after all.

Turns out, Jessica Jones was a classmate of Peter from high school and had a crush on him, which irks her husband Luke Cage a little. Before they proceed to plan ahead to take Osborn down, Doctor Strange arrives there to seek help. He barely survived an encounter with The Hood, who is currently after his Eye of Agamotto.

It appears that Stephen Strange is no longer a Sorcerer Supreme of Earth dimension as he used dark arts to save his friends earlier. He has been looking for a new contender for his former title ever since and met Young Avengers member Wiccan in New Jersey but their conversation is interrupted midway when he sees Parker Robbins outside.

New Avengers – Search for the Sorcerer Supreme | Comics

Strange told Billy Kaplan to run and attempts to face Hood alone but not only did he fail to reason with Robbins, he soon realized that his enemy has grown more powerful than he is now. Instead of running, Wiccan came out helping with his powers, allowing them both to escape from there and he came here to gather strength.

New Avengers insists on helping Strange as they were after Robbins, who has ties to Osborn. Meanwhile, Hood goes to Dormammu seeking help to ease his pain and meets Madame Masque. Not knowing what he's been up to, she suggests that they go look for Doctor Strange to get help and removes her mask before kissing him.

They all head to New Orleans trying to find the new rightful owner for Eye of Agamotto in a Quinjet that Carol "borrrowed" when she left Mighty Avengers. What Strange is mostly concerned about is that even people like Doctor Doom or Hood could be a candidate for being next Sorcerer Supreme and that would be disastrous.

On their way, the Eye suddenly activates by itself and starts display all of its possible holders before getting disappeared, most likely to its new owner. They are hit by a missile by Madame Masque, prompting Spidey and Wolverine to go after her. Logan ran into heavy fire and Spider-Woman engaged her until Captain America took her out.

In his apartment, Daimon Hellstrom was arguing with his ex-wife Patsy Walker AKA Hellcat over phone. The Hood comes at him guns blazing thinking he has what he is looking for but was unable to even land a scratch on him. They both get a glimpse of the Eye before it gets vanished again and Hood is cast outside from his house.

Their fight gets ugly pretty quickly and caught attention of The Avengers, who came in offering aid to Hellstrom. As Cage and Doc Strange try their best to contain the fiery fury of an unhinged Parker Robbins, who has taken a larger demonic form, Jericho Drumm AKA Brother Voodoo shows up wearing the Eye of Agamotto to help.

Continuing his run on eleventh New Avengers storyline "Search for the Sorcerer Supreme", writer Brian Michael Bendis (House of M, Secret War) returns once again to rally up the heroes to face a "Dark Reign" with a revised team lineup and status quo for Marvel Comics in 2009 that would spread across various other mini-series.

Bendis was joined by artists Antonio Fabela, Justin Ponsor, Billy Tan (Thor – Latverian Prometheus, Uncanny X-Men – End of Greys), Chris Bachalo (Dark Reign – The Sinister Spider-Man, X-Men – Age of Apocalypse) and Matt Banning in telling his story within issues #51-54 from fist volume of monthly ongoing comic-book series.

Even though Cage has been acting as a leader for some time, he steps down and Bucky Barnes simply didn't have old-school Avengers experience. In a not so surprising manner, Clint Barton gets elected as current leader of New Avengers.

The Hood, one of Osborn's allies and a herald of Dormammu becomes a major pain for heroes to deal with. Although he went after Strange to steal his Eye of Agamotto by force, Parker eventually ended up being badly burnt in hospital. A new Sorcerer Supreme is chosen and more bad news is heading for them in next story "Powerloss".
