considering the CW thread is filled with gag banners and no serious dicussion can be made, i've created a poll. Mods can move this in there if they choose to.

So make your choice.
 
Iron man is being a manipulative jerk at the moment, and Cap totally kicked ass on the first issue, so I'm going with Cap!

I'll be following Spidey mostly though.
 
But does Iron Man being a "manipulative jerk" really have anything to do with the issue at hand?

As a parent, and property owning, tax-paying citizen, i'd probably have to side with Iron Man.

But deep down in my heart, i'm rooting for Cap.
 
I have a serious problem with authority so I'd be siding with Cap. And I'd convince Spider-Man to change sides and to dump MJ.
 
whether we like it or not.. heroes are around in order to protect us from all the terrible ****t that would happen. if registering them hinders that than i think Cap is on the right side. the only ones who want to register are the ones who will benefit from it. The rest will suffer and have their lives drastically altered.

Iron Man is completely correct, imo. :up:

if you read CW issue one...considering he is siding with the government.. he isnt

if you read ASM only than yea.. but clearly.. he isn't on the same page as he was then...
 
I have a feeling that Millar's gonna purposely try to get us to jump back and forth between sides as much as possible. Issue #1 clearly wants us to side with Cap, but I'm betting that we're gonna be conviced the other way around in Issue #2.
 
That would be something, but as of now I'm with Cap.

Yes and no (for me anyway). The fact that he has manipulated Spider-Man and other people already to try and get what he wants doesn't cut it for me. However, I know he's been trying to manipulate people for the better of the super hero community, so I can sympathise with his situation (and of course I can see the advantages of registering). I can see why many of the super heroes are siding with Iron Man, but I think his way isn't the best way (from what we know)
Personally, I wouldnt register if I was in the situation. Maybe its my age and the fact that I don't have any financial responsibilities, but I live with my parents and if I were a super hero and a super villian were to find out my identity, that would be endangering my family.

Has it actually been said whether or not the identities will be publicly known or if the government will just contain them?
 
it wouldnt be public.. but info like that can be bought and stolen.. a point made by i believe IM himself in ASM.
 
Marvel should make Civil War t-shirts. Like instead of "I'm with stupid" it should say "I'm with Cap'n A" or "I'm with Iron Man".

Anyway, I'm on Captain America/Spidey's side. But I have a question about this. It still seems illogical to me that citizens have been reading about heroes all this time and have been saved by them for years now, it doesn't make sense that people would want them outed or whatever. Hulk has been going on rampages for years no one wanted to out the other heroes because of him.


And technically isn't this all just a rip off/parody/homeage to Watchmen? Basically the same things are happening.

Wasn't Watchmmen a rip off/parody/homage to Gruenwald's Squadron Supreme?

True, but aren't the families of policemen, Federal agents, judges, and lawyers under the same risk? And THEY have no super powers to defend themselves with.

C'mon Cap... Despite you being a parent and all, we all know you wish you could be like Spidey. ;) :cool:

:)
 
Well, logically, superbeing registration would make sense...just not how it's presented here. Besides, we're not supposed to be rooting for Iron Man. Civil War and the comics leading up to it have so stacked the deck in favor of anti-registration, we "silly" readers are supposed to be rooting for that side.
 
I got three main titles featuring "hero's getting hunted"

Lets go Reg'! :up:
 
Yeah, Deadpool will stick it to those pajama wearing "rebels" big time. :D

Also true, but that's why I wouldnt like to be in any of those jobs :)

All I see it as, is that if a person is saving lives on a daily basis, and in some super heroes cases saving the world on an almost daily basis, then surely they have the right to their privacy? When other super heroes such as Iron Man try and exploit and manipulate the situation they are potentionally making it worse (not that we know exactly what is going to happen anyway), even if they have the best intentions. What I really liked, but made me favour Cap a lot more, was Iron Man's readiness to try and bring Cap in to the authorities. It kinda shows that he's willing to try and take on any of his super hero buddies to get what he wants.
 
I'm with Cap until the bitter end.

Should heroes be rgistered, paid, federal employees? Maybe....but look at what it will breed.....a new era of America laziness.

We Americans seem so hesitant to help each other as it is, nowadays....if you have a certain group of people being paid by the government to save people and such, then how long before the common man quits helping out, and they start treating the heroes like sanitation workers?

"Hey, mister, can you help me?! My leg's caught beneath this rock!!"

"Sorry, I'm not an employed hero for the U.S. Government...I don't want you to sue me if I mess up."

It's breeds more problems than it does solutions. Should the heroes be punished for their mistakes? Yes...but not at the cost of belittling the good that they do on a daily basis. How long in the Marvel Universe before the people begin to blame the heores fro everythign and anything...especially after they've become liable by the government?

"My car....I wrecked my car....probably because Spider-Man and Shocker were fighting in the middle of the street....nto because I was drinking."

I'm telling you, you can't regulate heroics.
