Dark times is a six-issue miniseries written by Tom Taylor and drawn by Iban Coello. It takes place in an alternate version of the Marvel Universe where a series of tragedies have changed the course of human history. When a robotic threat known as the Unmaker attempts to destroy Earth, members of the X-Men, Fantastic Four, and Avengers team up to save the world. However, the threat turns out to be more powerful than they thought and is killing many of their ranks. Seeing no other way to win, Doctor Strange creates a portal that encompasses the globe in a constant electromagnetic pulse. While this decision saves the day, it also changes the lives of all survivors, as they must learn to exist without using electricity.
Following this tragedy, the world of Dark times opened up to create a vast landscape for Marvel’s heroes. The series introduced a new iteration of Spider-Girl and also reshaped familiar faces like Mister Fantastic, Iron Man, and Captain America. Speaking on the series, Taylor said, “I’m excited to team up with the brilliant Iban Coello on one of the most epic stories I’ve ever been involved in. Marvel’s Dark Ages is a different story from all of them. the ones we have told before. “

Next month, Taylor will be joined by artist Yasmine Putri to Dark Knights of Steel, which he calls his “greatest Elsewhere story again. “
