** This led to a pseudo-example called ''ComicBook/DarkReign'', which details Osborns tenure as the leader of the DarkerAndEdgier [=SHIELD=] called [=HAMMER=], during which time he sets up and leads his own EvilCounterpart to ''ComicBook/TheAvengers'' (as well as the ComicBook/XMen and a couple of others), dressing up psychotic supervillains to disguise themselves as the heroes, whilst pursuing an agressive domestic and foreign policy and consolidating his power by allying with major players like Loki Namor, Emma Frost and Doctor Doom ([[MyFriendsAndZoidberg and the Hood]]), whilst once again starting to descend back into Goblin-related madness. WordOfGod is this was not an "event" like the previous examples but it did lead to many mini-crossovers as pretty much every Earth-bound hero found themselves in conflict with the maniac plus it ticks most of the boxes anyway (save that its longer), and its worth mentioning because the conclusion to it was...

* And as long as we're being complete, there was the ComicBook/AmalgamUniverse story, in which both the Marvel and the DC multiverses face annihilation -- and so the two multiverses were forcibly merged for a short time to keep their worlds alive. (Amalgam Dark Claw = DC Franchise/{{Batman}} + Marvel ComicBook/{{Wolverine}}; Amalgam Super Soldier = DC Franchise/{{Superman}} + Marvel ComicBook/CaptainAmerica; Amalgam Amazon = DC WonderWoman + Marvel ComicBook/{{Storm}}; Amalgam Lobo The Duck = DC Lobo + Marvel Comicbook/HowardTheDuck; Amalgam Captain Marvel = DC [[ComicBook/{{Shazam}} Captain Marvel]] + Marvel ComicBook/CaptainMarVell; et multiple cetera.)

** The first is ''ComicBook/OriginalSin'' by Jason Aaron and Mike Deodato Jr. It is a murder mystery about the killing of Uatu the Watcher and the heroes' buried secrets which he has personally witnessed but kept to himself being leaked out to the superhero community. (It's highly reminiscent of DC's ''ComicBook/IdentityCrisis.''

*** Humorously, WarrenEllis, the author of ''ComicBook/{{Nextwave}}'', predicted online almost a year before the Elektra/Skrull reveal that everything that had gone wrong in ''Civil War'' was the fault of "Anal Skrulls!", which has become a [[MemeticMutation catch phrase of sorts]] in certain 'net communities. He also joked that ''Nextwave'' was the only canonical book Marvel published, with all the other titles featuring the aforementioned anal Skrulls.

** The 40 tie-in stories this event had were very well received (many of them [[Author'sSavingThrow: brought back beloved characters and status quos]] that hadn't been seen in years or even decades). The main miniseries was much less popular.

** The main effect this event had on the New 52 universe was that the Superman and Lois Lane of the Post Crisis/Pre-Flashpoint Universe immigrated to the New 52 Universe,as seen in ''ComicBook/SupermanLoisAndClark''.

* ''ComicBook/{{Convergence}}'' Comicbook/{{Brainiac}} uses his access to the Vanishing Point to pluck cities out of three pre-New 52 eras of DC history (the pre-''Comicbook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths'' era, the pre-''Comicbook/ZeroHour'' era, and the pre-''Comicbook/{{Flashpoint}}'' era). Additionally, he also captured cities from varous {{Alternate Universe}}s from the DC [[TheMultiverse Multiverse]], such as the Creator/TangentComics universe, the Creator/{{Wildstorm}} universe, and the Comicbook/{{Flashpoint}} universe. With 40 captive cities in total, Brainiac takes them to the mysterious world of Telos within domes, to observe them. But when [[Comicbook/TheNew52FuturesEnd Braniac mysteriously vanishes when attempting to gain yet another city from a doomed timeline]], [[GeniusLoci Telos itself]] releases them to see which world deserves to live amongst them all. The ensuing chaos sees a massive conflict that pits hero against hero and spans decades of continuity.
