· Dark Reign the List: X-Men by Fraction and Alan Davis focuses on Namor.
· Dark Reign The List: Wolverine, written by Jason Aaron and drawn by Esad Ribic. “It's got Fantomex on the cover, and Marvel Boy is involved.” Aaron says it plays with a lot of themes from Grant Morrison's New X-Men, and also the brand new Weapon XVI.
