I only got back into non-TF comics when CW started, so I had no idea Peter had joined the Avengers and all that. But to me Peter didn't really have a motive. He found a father figure in Stark and simply went along with everything Stark suggested to him.

In a way Stark took advantage of Peter. Oh sure he gave him his new suit (which was pretty much an Iron Man suit and made Peter's (un)natural spider abilities redundant), put him, MJ and May up in fancy accommodation and provided them with protection, but it was clear that Stark realised he could use Peter as the poster boy for registration.

Great example of how much Stark didn't give a fig about others as long as they served his long term goal.

As far as Reed goes, there was no credibility to his actions. And you're right, it is a plot device to set up the new FF line-up (Johnny, Ben, Storm and Black Panther if I recall)

I find it hard to believe that someone so smart, could be so damn blind.

The problems caused by the registration act, his wife walking out on him, and he didn't even stop to think he may have been wrong. Not to mention how immoral the clone Thor thing was.

Peter had a real student/teacher relationship with Tony prior to things breaking down. His decisions were not simply abandoning Mary Jane and May, Tony had gone to great lengths to protect both them and Peter. So in essence, Peter's family had grown by one, (+Tony).

Don't forget to add in the fact that Peter was on the fence about the whole thing. It was Mary Jane and May who told him it was ok, and the right thing to do. They were guiding forces in his decision.

As for Reed. Fantastic Four #542 is really, really important for understanding his decision making. Since everyone saw the spoiler warning at the beginning, I'll discuss it.

Reed, after consulting with Johnny and The Thinker (an intellectual genious that Reed considered capable of 'checking his work'); Reed concluded with like 99% accuracy, that the Registration Act was the one factor which could prevent the eminent destruction of Earth's populace. Read that issue. ( I have a digital copy if you can't find it ) Reed and his decision make SO much more sense then.

I've never been a real big fan of Storm (never understood what was so great about her, little bit over-rated) but marrying T'Challa and dedicating herself to Wakanda has done a lot for her character.


When did the real Thor die or disappear? That plot point seemed really cliche to me as well. I would be pissed if I was a Thor fan.


Thor has been gone since the Avengers Disassembled story arc. Asgard was obliterated in a true Ragnorok. Basically, Thor allowed the event to come to true fruition in order to break a cycle of meaningless life and death that his people were suffering at the hands of the Celestials. (BTW, Awesome read. Really, Realy good. The best part of Avengers Disassembled.)

Now back in Fantastic Four #540 or #541, Thor's hammer falls to Earth (tearing heaven and hell in the process and subsequently freeing Doctor Doom from hell). Thousands of people try to lift the hammer, even Doom. All fail.

A lone figure with the initials G.B. skips the line, pushes someone away and takes the hammer. G.B. then disappears. Basically, Thor is around, but chose to avoid the Civil War.

Whew...

Any other questions? :grin:

LOL. That about summed it up indeed. I can't decide if I was disappointed or not in #7. It seemed like a rush end ... kind of like if a book was canceled. I was surprised that a book experienced various delays during its 7 issue run came to such an abrupt end.

Well, the good thing that came out of reading Civil War was that it got me into ... Astonishing X-Men. I love that book for some reason. I think because it's pretty much a stand alone book that I have been enjoying it so much.

I got out of comics back in 96 after the Onslaught storyline. I was pretty ticked that Marvel had killed off all of those characters in a move basically to relaunch a variety of books with bunch of the ex-Marvel guys from Image. I think I felt betrayed by my loyalty to Marvel more than anything for trying to bring any of those guys back. Civil War was technically my first non-Transformers comic I had bought in 10 years.

After a conversation with a few of the guys at Graham Cracker comics on Clark here in Chicago, they encouraged me to get Thanos Quest 1 & 2 (after I told them that I had really enjoyed the Inifinity Gauntlet the most during the 90s) and Astonishing X-Men (after I told them that I had been primarily an X-Man fan during that period). I've been thrilled with what I've been reading.

The writers have pretty much said that this was the ending planned from the beginning.

I can get you digital copies of the most recent Thanos stories if you want (I'm a big Thanos fan as well).

Grimlock hates authority...unless it's his own.

Transformers, well, the Autobots anyway, were all about protecting the innocent.

That means they'd side with Ironman. Especially since the freedom being taken away were all in Cap's head.

You're so full of shit dude, no offense. Here's a list of Amendments in the Bill of Rights that were violated by the enforcement of registration. (Note: Spider-man is a citizen of the US, so even if you consider him a weapon before being a person these rights still apply to him.)


Amendment II:
A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

Violated


Amendment IV:
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Violated


Amendment V:
No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the militia, when in actual service in time of war or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

Violated


Amendment VI:
In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the state and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the assistance of counsel for his defense.

Violated


Amendment VIII:
Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.

Violated


Amendment X:
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.

Violated

I, um, am going to have to disagree.

Now, on to your argument; you can't paraphrase the Amendments. That will lead to an interpretation out of context.

I will give you this. Due process was indeed violated in some cases, unless of course the President had declared an actual 'state of war'. I don't know if that was detailed.

At any rate, listing the Amendments and writing VIOLATED after them proves nothing. Site some examples so we can discuss them in a civilized way.

I copied and pasted the entire violated amendment.

Autobots, round up the humans and send them to a harsh alternate dimension prison just because they are just suddenly illegal because a corrupt member of Damage Control gave Nitro some power boosting drugs and he blew up alot of innocent people.

No..Prime wouldn't be doing that. Rodimus maybe (Chaar anyone?) But Prime'd come along and fix that easily. No, Optimus would have been rolling down the streets with Cap at the wheel. Tony'd be wondering why he sided with a Winnebago with Prime envy. :P

Unless Furman wrote it, the Galvatron'd side with IronMan, and Grimlock'd save the day, becoming the new Avenger leader.

It takes like a minute to edit your post. What's the big deal? I'd do it myself if I could.

And it's a new piece of info that comes after Civil War #7. If someone read #7 and came into the thread knowing everything that happened in that comic, expecting to discuss it, then clicked your link, they'd be spoiled by the new info. Have a little respect for the rest of the readers.
