About %99 percent of marvel fans are spiderman fans and they shove him aside in almost every major event (especially in the time period stated above), even in dark reign. I mean COME ON ! Norman Osborn his arch nemesis, the man who made spiderman (one of the nicest guys of the marvel universe) go into near HOMICIDAL RAGE, he killed the love of his life, his daughter, (of course this one "never happend" thanks f**king one more day) and tricked him into believing that his parents were alive.
Norman overthrew SHEILD and created his own avengers team brainwashed the public into thinking that they're the good guys. And spiderman almost never fought him, of course he kicked him around in new avengers and fought him in darkreign: the list. Now i'm not saying that spidey should have been in every single dark reign issue but i was AT LEAST expecting one final showdown in siege or something like that.
