‘Storming’ Norman

"Storming Asgard: Heroes and Villains” is a worthwhile 28-page event Handbook, an organized dossier prepared by Norman Osborn’s right-hand woman Victoria Hand. This is especially useful to those who haven’t been paying attention to the Dark Reign-connected titles, but are getting the “Siege” mini. Containing relevant character profiles, the one-shot has revealing threat analyses and assessments (for example, Hand’s comment on Ben Urich: “I would drive to Broxton for the chance to put a bullet in him myself.”). “Storming Asgard” summarizes some key points during the yearlong Reign of Norman Osborn. It’s more streamlined than the regular companion sourcebook, but it has info on the bigger picture that may not even be mentioned in the main miniseries.
