Since the shocking finale of SECRET INVASION vaulted him to national prominence and a newfound respect, Norman Osborn has been slowly organizing his power base, promoting his minions, eliminating his enemies – and losing his sanity. Now, as he meets with the uber-powerful elite of the Cabal – Doctor Doom, Loki and the Hood – the final stages of his Dark Reign are about to be put into fruition: the taking of Asgard. Some might say such a plan is insane. And when you’re dealing with the former and possibly future Green Goblin, we’re not going to necessarily disagree with you! SIEGE: STORMING ASGARD – HEROES & VILLIANS takes you inside the careful planning behind Osborn’s crusade to take the kingdom of Thor off the board. Who are the featured players in the saga, how did we get here, and what are the many contingencies in this operation? With insider character bios and commentary from the creators behind the Dark Siege, this will make essential reading for kicking off the event in style!

As a costumed adventurer, Jessica Jones was plagued by a lack of self-esteem and an inability to master her superhuman powers.

Now a tough-as-nails private investigator, Jessica returns home to find a mysterious girl in a costume hiding in her apartment, but she flies away before Jessica can find out who she is. Through sources, Jessica discovers that her intruder is Mattie Franklin, a.k.a. Spider-Woman, a teenage super hero with a connection to Daily Bugle publisher J. Jonah Jameson. With Mattie in danger, Jessica Jones must seek help from an unlikely source — Jessica Drew, the original Spider-Woman — to bring her home alive. Then, for the first time, learn all of Jessica’s hidden secrets — how she got her powers and joined the Avengers, and the dark, unspoken chapter in Marvel Universe history that changed her life forever.
