Made my way through the Marvel Civil War saga.
Got interested in Spidey's story, so also got the prelude stories to see how Tony becomes his close friend and boss when Peter and his family lost everything.
Therefore, the Spidey story had an even greater emotional impact on me.
It was every bit as good as the reviews say it would be.
It was an exciting story, about loyalty, being different and fighting for what you believe in.
Deeply moving and emotional.
And it also draws quite a few parallels to the real world, about "coming out" and the consequences, both to one self and to friends and family, and also showing, in grim detail, all that is wrong with places like Guantanamo and the "justice" served there.
Tony is shown as utterly ruthless in this, scheming and becoming the very thing he despises.
He hates what he is doing, and he is aware of how much he is destroying, bringing down his friends and destroying the way of life of the superheroes.
However, even after reading this, and considering the points made by both sides, I still think the whole plot was completely insane.
The amount of destruction and collateral damage would have landed everyone, including Tony, in jail several times over.
And in real life, registration would have been a fact, since the start. And it would have been the sensible thing to do, too.
I have to say I enjoyed the Civil War saga more than I thought I would, and that was mainly due to the devastating character developments that take place.
I am usually pretty bored by just fights, explosions and superheroes go smash, so this was a nice positive surprise for me.
I take it then if you were a hero or at least a super-powered being in the Marvel Universe you would have been Pro Registration?
