Five of the world's greatest heroes - Spider-Man, Black Bolt, Blade, Wasp, and Iron Man - took a chance and read from the cursed Darkhold. They were meant to gain the power to fight back the dread elder god Chthon - but instead they've lost their minds and all they once held dear. Was it worth the cost? And who is their bold new ally - a product of Chthon's dark dimension, or something else entirely? Steve Orlando and Cian Tormey deliver a heart-pounding conclusion to the epic Darkhold event - and introduce a hero who will take the Marvel Universe by storm!

    Between her participation in the Trial of Magneto and this series it would be hard to not notice Wanda is trending in the Marvel Universe. The only concern is that after the events of Darkhold Omega # 1 it may be for all the wrong reasons. Read Full Review

    A magical event that was rather uneventful, despite the excellent work put out by Steve Orlando and Cian Tormey, left me wanting more. I hope this isnt the end of the road for Wanda and Orlando, because he really has a nice grasp on who she is, when shes not being portrayed as a plot device for the growth of other characters.

    Darkhold: Omega wraps up its story in a satisfying way offering up a big climax, some resolution for our heroes, and some closure for Scarlet Witch too. It's a series that has been filled with clever ideas with an evil slant and it all ends with readers knowing it all mattered. That's something many recent Marvel events can't say. Read Full Review

    Despite some fun issues, the Wasp, Spider-Man and Iron Man, this series has kind of dovetailed into an ending that feels a tad lacklustre and underwhelming. With that said, I can see how the book will appeal to Wanda fans. Read Full Review

    The Darkhold: Omega wraps up this string of connected one-shots by bringing all of the corrupted heroes back together for a final showdown with Chthon. This works well as a plot device in theory, but stumbles in execution. Read Full Review
