Amazing Marvel artwork blends with a modern, mature, post-911 storyline of paranoia, and there is a brilliant comparison between images of the 1800s Civil War and this modern one of superheroes on two sides.

Loved this. This is the Marvel movie I want to see. Super-heroes taking sides and thrashing the living daylights out of each other. It’s a great story in that I started reading it doubtful that I would end up picking a side, but I <I>so</I> did. <br/><br/>I totally understood where Tony was coming from and his motivation and drive was very characteristic of him. What surprised me was that I totally and utterly sided with Captain America, a character of whom I have never really been a fan. <br/><br/>What surprised me even more was that I felt quite bad for Spidy, a comic book character that I’ve never really warmed to (despite loving the cartoon as a kid). I thought the Tony/Steve drama was awesome, as well as the sad and inevitable conclusion to it.<br/><br/>I do hate that the story felt a little open-ended though. I kind of read the last page and thought ‘What? Where’s the rest?’ Maybe a few more pages would have been nice, like a prison cell chat between Steve and Tony. <br/><br/>Even so, what an enjoyable story this is.

The problem with the Civil War arc in Marvel comics is the sheer amount of stuff you have to read to get the full story. I mean, my main interest lies with Cap and Iron Man, and the Young Avengers, but while they're main players here there's a lot going on both for them that isn't in this collection, and stuff going on without them <I>in</i> this collection. I don't know much about the Fantastic Four or Daredevil, and it's a little awkward to jump in.Nonetheless, this is a pretty amazing crossover event, and the ending is amazing -- the way Steve takes his mask off and just, aghhh. I don't know whether to hope they incorporate this into the MCU or not.One thing I would've liked would've been to see Hulkling just a bit more concerned about his boyfriend being in prison. I don't know if that shows up in the Runaways/Young Avengers crossover Civil War comic, but given the strength of their concern for each other in the Young Avengers comics, it feels a bit weak.
