Review by

I thought that this trade got off to a good start, but it fell flat for me after a while.My first gripe is the "tune in to Civil War #_ to see what happens next!" stuff, which happened three or four times in the story. Now, I've read the Civil War event, so I knew what went on and didn't really miss anything, but I hate when a book, even if it's a collection of comics, doesn't give you a complete story - especially when it's a ploy to make you buy other books so you'll have the complete story.Another gripe of mine was the fact that this book didn't have a good ending; in fact, I don't think it had an ending at all. Yes, I know that comics are (generally) on-going stories, but there is a definite end of the story arc. The result of the Civil War event isn't mentioned and is deliberately left as a cliffhanger, in an effort to make readers buy more books for the complete story.Another gripe of mine is that this trade sets up the controversial "One More Day" storyline, which is the reason why I do not read Spider-Man comics past that arc.Iron Man is portrayed as an ideology-crazed idiot who is perfectly okay with throwing his long-time friends into a horrible prison without due process simply because they refuse to register, but that doesn't seem too far off from how Tony was portrayed in the Civil War event itself (not that I agree with that characterization, but it wasn't J. Michael Straczynski driving that one). And the art isn't bad.
