The next big Marvel event?: ‘Siege’

The beginning of the end for Dark Reign begins in December with the Siege: The Cabal one-shot, all leading to a big event in January 2010, Marvel’s solicits revealed.

Last week we showed you a mysterious image by David Finch, which featured Norman Osborn taking on Doctor Doom.

Marvel’s December Solicitations, which have leaked onto Superpouvoir, reveal that this story is a one-shot entitled Siege: The Cabal by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Lark. But it’s not just a one-shot, the book sets the stage for next year’s big event. Here’s the solicitation:

THE SIEGE STARTS HERE!! Remember when you were first introduced to the
Cabal, the gathering of the most sinister members of the Marvel
Universe, and you said to yourself: Well, that’s going to blow up in
everyone’s face! Well, you were right and it happens right here!!
Norman Osborn faces off with Doctor Doom and his mysterious threat to
Doom is revealed. All of this is setting the stage for next month’s
explosive event: SIEGE!

Pretty exciting huh? And there’s more, the event already has tie-ins, such as Avengers: The Initiative #31, which features Taskmaster, and his promotion to the Cabal.

incalculable power!
