Darkest Reign is a role-playing forum with a plot based in the Marvel Universe. Over the decades, a vast increase in mutant births has occurred. Now, having once hid themselves from the public for fear of ridicule and harm, mutants are the dominant race in terms of sheer numbers and they have merged into all aspects of society. Magneto has taken the position of President of the United States by force, ensuring the great fall from power that Humanity had long feared and giving Mutantkind their well deserved place at the top at last. As one species faces a bleak future, another rises to greatness.
