This incident left Cabal disbanded and Osborn devising a sinister plan with Loki, similar to the infamous "Stamford Incident" that resulted in the super-hero Civil War to get approval from the President of United States for an all-out assault on Asgard.

Meanwhile, Osborn’s Green Goblin persona tries to resurface as well as The Sentry acts unstable, letting The Void come out every once in a while. To keep Sentry in his fold, Osborn assigns Bullseye with a specific task. To seek adventures on Earth, Volstagg of Warriors Three fell into the tricks staged by Osborn and Loki, where his fight with U-Foes destroyed Soldier Field and everyone in the stadium is killed by the blast Volstagg deflected from them.

Declaring Asgard as a threat to national security after the accident, Osborn as Iron Patriot, along with his Dark Avengers and an invading military troop heads to Asgard to lay siege. Captain America assembled The Avengers, heading to the scene to stop Osborn and his goons in Dark Avengers.

New Avengers – Power | Comics

Skrull Invasion is over but how would New Avengers roster will reassemble and survive an impending Dark Reign.

During crisis of "Secret Invasion", all superheroes and villains came together fighting the alien Skrulls but it was Norman Osborn, leader of Thunderbolts who effectively ended the conflict by taking a kill-shot on Queen Veranke. He becomes a beloved media hero and Tony Stark is overthrown from his position as Director of S.H.I.E.L.D.

President of the United States has tasked Osborn to assemble a new peace-keeping task force and handed Avengers Initiative over. He secretly assembled a number of divisive individuals like Emma Frost, Doctor Doom, Loki, Prince Namor and The Hood for a meeting to form a Cabal that would work to ensure all of its members' interests.

As part of his new schemes, Norman attempts to fully shut down current Thunderbolts program, which caused Swordsman to go into frenzy and he threatened to publicly expose Osborn only to get impaled by his own sword in return.

A new Captain America and Thor joined all assembled heroes when they were trying to defend capital city from Skrulls. Cap instructed New Avengers members to gather at his safe-house at Bronx, where Iron Fist, Mockingbird, Ronin, Spider-Man and Wolverine showed up next day followed by a recently resurfaced original Spider-Woman.

Despite Clint started acting pretty antagonistic towards her, Logan vouched for her since she was replaced by Skrulls and had nothing to do anything with the invasion. Jessica Jones returns with Luke Cage and Ms. Marvel, desperately seeking for Edwin Jarvis imposter, to whom she gave her child before joining her husband at Central Park.

They immediately head out to find the baby and goes directly to Baxter Building, looking for help from Fantastic Four. Though they were in a mess already, Sue Storm rallied up her family up to look for Danielle. After searching into bases of A.I.M., HYDRA and even underground, they found a Skrull into a bar full of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents.

Before they could even properly interrogate, the disguised alien tried to run and is shot into head by a disgruntled S.H.I.E.L.D. agent. Seeing no other way to get back his child, Cage asks Osborn to help him find where Skrull-Jarvis is hiding. Seeing him desperate to do anything at this point, Norman gladly agrees to make a deal.

They fly to maximum security prison Raft shortly afterwards to see Skrull prisoners captured for interrogation. Osborn asks one of them whether he knows where Skrull-Jarvis currently is but they choose not to respond. He tells Venom to eat one of them and he happily obliges, to which the surviving one cracks and gives them a location.

Cage walks into their meeting place and Jarvis pretended walks in carrying his daughter Danielle a while later. He tried to bargain release for his comrades but then gives her up anyway and gets shot in the head by Bullseye right away. Cage family is reunited at Avengers Tower and Luke tells Jessica that he gets a pass for life off her wifely stuff.

However, he didn't intend to keep his part of the deal to Osborn and took out both Gargan and Lester with Wrecker's magical crowbar before jumping out of window. Back at their hideout, New Avengers witness Norman Osborn to publicly announce his new "Dark Avengers" team, assembled with their twisted, villainous counterparts.

Deal With The Devil

In a post-Secret Invasion period, Tony Stark became a fugitive and Norman Osborn assumes control over almost everything. Major controversial figures have agreed to join his new endeavor to take care of their own interest. A major power shift has lead to a new era where heroes are on the run and villains are in position of power.

Danny Rand temporarily quits team to take care of some urgent financial affairs at Rand Corporation. More of their adventures will be further explored in "Search for the Sorcerer Supreme" story next.

Following the major crossover ‘Secret Invasion’, Marvel Comics had launched a new era in 2008 that lasted for almost over a year and was branded as "Dark Reign" event, which is later succeeded by 'Siege' crossover event. This event doesn't contain any titled mini-series or core plot of its own; instead it is filled with lots of self contained limited series depicting the era.
