Synopsis for "Dark Reign*The List: X-Men"
Following an all-out war with Norman Osborn - director of the national peacekeeping organization H.A.M.M.E.R. - and his Dark Avengers, the X-Men left San Francisco. Raising the abandoned Asteroid M from the depths of the Pacific Ocean, the X-Men declared it a haven for mutantkind, an island sanctuary free of Osborn's jurisdiction. But Norman is determined not to let the X-Men slip through his fingers so easily...particularly the two mutants among their number who betrayed him: Emma Frost and Namor, King of Atlantis.
The fallout of UTOPIA begins here. What else could Norman Osborn possibly do to the X-Men? ...CLASSIFIED... Plus, Matt Fraction's first Marvel story featuring the X-Men!
- Also reprints "Dead Man Walking", Matt Fraction's first work for Marvel.
- Dazzler (Alison Blaire) appears on the cover of this issue but not in the story itself.
