Norman Osborn has appointed the villainous Moonstone to become the world’s new favorite super-heroine–what kind of chaos and mayhem will ensue? This issue also features a Wolverine Art Appreciation variant cover by Paolo Rivera!


Fans and critics are raving about Brian Reed and Ms. Marvel:


"What’s so fascinating about this current run of Ms. Marvel by Brian Reed is just how versatile he has proven both himself to be as a writer, as well as the character he writes, Carol Danvers, Ms. Marvel. […] This is a truly great book." — Adam Chapman,


"This issue has a few plotlines running through it, but I think Brian Reed handles it efficiently and effectively. I really think the best events and storylines of "Dark Reign" are going to happen where you least expect them, and this is one of those places."– Kevin Powers,


"I should be hit in the face with a 12 inch frying pan for even imagining a bad issue of Ms. Marvel." — Mike Rapin,
