Marvel has announced two of it's newest arcs that are coming out in the next year. One of them is "Civil War 2". For those of you unfamiliar with the original Civil War, the long and short of it is that the superhero community was split down the middle. Tony Stark's pro-registration against Captain America (Steve Rogers) anti-registration. The two factions warred over what was the right approach to the way super people were policed. It ended with Steve Rogers quitting after he realized they were fighting just to fight and missing the point. It was inevitable that the superhero community would eventually be split down the middle again over some new law the government was going to propose. This particular war is going to be fought over whether or not to arrest people before the crime is committed. Think Minority report with Tony Stark in control of the button. Great concept and if it's true that they are going all "Minority Report" in the Marvel this is going to be a great series. Since the new movie is coming out and Civil War is one of Marvel Comics most recent classic stories, making the arc Civil War 2 makes sense. The big question will be just like the first, who's side will each hero pick?
Spider-Man is all for stopping crime before it happens. He is self righteous enough to believe this is a great idea. And now that he's rich and running his own country, he will side with the government to keep his people employed. Tony Stark is also so riddled with guilt over all of his past mistakes that he would easily think it's a great idea to stop crimes before they could happen. On the flip side of the coin, I'm Wondering if Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers) will be opposed to this idea or not. Rumor has it that she meets an Inhuman who see the future and she uses him to solve future crime.
There have been pictures of Iron Man and Captain Marvel head to head in promos as well as Iron Man against Captain America (Sam Wilson). So, like the first Marvel Civil War, Iron Man seems to be the one causing everything. It would be a great twist where he was actually against this idea and Sam Wilson was the one heading this movement. If Civil War 2 does as well or better than the it's predecessor, this could become a series that happens once every five years or so. I mean, who doesn't like seeing superheroes beating the crap out of each? Especially since there will be a major death in this series. Even money says Sam Wilson dies and Steve Rogers gets the Super Soldier serum back in his system becomes Captain America again.
