Civil War II
When Marvel Comics promised in issue #3 of Civil War II that “One of the biggest heroes in the Marvel Universe will fall!” they weren’t kidding. Literally or figuratively. The newest Civil War has been cutting a bloody swath through the comic book Marvel Universe since May, and has already claimed at least one marquee name, but in the latest issue of the event miniseries, which hits comic book store shelves today, a superhero that’s been at the forefront of the MCU for decades falls and – you guessed it! – nothing will ever be the same again. Spoilers follow, obviously. (more…)
Marvel is in the midst of Civil War II, the new face-off between that comic universe’s superheroes that has divided them and forced them to fight each other rather than, you know, the bad guys. While these big events are used to get readers back to the comic book store, the secondary objective is to shake things up so that the fans don’t get too used to where their favorite characters are, what they’re doing and who they’re do it with. The first Civil War was followed by “The Initiative,” which showed how the fallout of the war effected the Marvel Universe; Civil War II, meanwhile, will be followed by “Divided We Stand.” (more…)
In case you have been living under a rock, Marvel Comics has been heavily promoting their Civil War II comic event. This is the follow up to the original Civil War crossover which Captain America: Civil War is loosely based off of. This time, instead of Iron Man Vs Captain America, it is Iron Man vs Captain Marvel. Instead of a Superhuman Registration Act, the conflict is over a new super-powered Inhuman who has the ability to predict the future (including future crimes). Captain Marvel wants the new Inhuman to be able to profile future crimes and attacks before they happen, and Iron Man against it with the argument that people shouldn’t be punished before a crime is committed. Think Minority Report, but with Marvel’s superheroes.
