|An accident on a reality show leads the government to issue a directive that all superheroes must register, a requirement that pits Captain American and his Underground Avengers against the Iron Man and Mr. Fantastic, who want to comply. *Author: Millar, Mark/ McNiven, Steve (ILT) *Publication Date: 2007/04/25 *Number of Pages: 192 *Binding Type: Paperback *Language: English *Depth: 0.25 *Width: 6.75 *Height: 10.00|
Who's side are you on? Politics get personal in the Marvel Universe pantheon when the U.S. government passes the Superhuman Registration Act. Requiring all humans born with super powers to register with the government, this act is highly controversial with the superhero community. Some think that the option of working for the government, receiving government pay and benefits, will legitimize the work the superheroes do and that it is the civil obligation of superhumans to comply. Others in the pantheon feel their civil liberties are being infringed upon and that the free-passes villains who register will get is outrageous. Beloved Marvel characters--including Spider-Man, the X-Men, and the Fantastic Four--find themselves fighting their longtime friends and allies and aligning themselves with their lifelong foes.
Customer Reviews of Civil War
Nice art, forced story.6/29/2007
I am not a fan of these huge crossovers. The one benefit is that there are usually top tier artists working on the books, and this is no exception. The artwork is very nice. I was not impressed with the story. Whether it is true or not, the story felt like it was forced. Like the writer wanted to get to a certain point, instead of just letting things happen. Perhaps the person I bought this for will enjoy it more than I did.
