New Avengers – Civil War | Comics

In wake of superhero Civil War, New Avengers are about to go to war with each other over their beliefs.

Following tragic events of "Stamford Incident", government issued Superhuman Registration Act that requires all individual with superpowers to have their secret identity revealed and work for them. Whereas Iron Man thinks this is a reasonable idea, Captain America refused to hunt down his fellow heroes and went AWOL.

Now that he is a known fugitive, S.H.I.E.L.D. sends a group of "Cape-Killers" agents after him along with his friend Dum Dum Dugan. He barely managed to escape and meet Sam Wilson AKA Falcon on a safe-house. They went to see Henry Pym to seek help but he called authority and Cap made a mess out of him on his way out.

Iron Man and Ms. Marvel goes to see Luke Cage, asking him whether he is willing to sign but he refuses to and waits at his home in Harlem after sending Jessica Jones with his kid to Canada. At midnight, S.H.I.E.L.D. agents came knocking down at him and he fought until Captain America came to take him alongside Daredevil and Falcon.

Spider-Woman finds herself torn between being a double agent for both Hydra and S.H.I.E.L.D. She goes into hiding and got a surprise visit from Nick Fury, which turns out to be an LMD that is controlled by Maria Hill. She is taken into custody by force but Hydra raids the Helicarrier she was in to abduct her and took her to Hydra Island.

She is greeted by her handler Connely, who wishes for her to take over their organization by replacing Viper. She fights him and a couple of agents before blowing up that entire island straight to hell before leaving. Back in New York, she goes to the safe-house where Cap was building a resistance of heroes and begs to take her in.

Long after locking himself up, The Sentry has recently found new purpose after joining New Avengers but is torn between his friends going into a superhero "Civil War" despite having sided with Iron Man. Considering any of his action can spell doom for them all, he chose to fly to moon seeking peace only to be attacked by Inhumans.

Right after he incapacitates them, Bob has been summoned by their king Black Bolt and over dinner, they all catch up to current events. He was asked to stay the night there and Royal Family member Crystal was pursuing to resume their former relationship from long ago until Iron Man showed up at their doorstep to take Sentry back.

Outside of Avengers Tower, a guy hacks into suits of stationed S.H.I.E.L.D. guards that froze and cause them to fell. He then walks into the building by passing every security measures to reach to top and come across Edwin Jarvis. Seeing him trying to reach for alarm, the man shot him and turned to see Iron Man standing behind him.

Though startled, he immediately shut Tony down with an override code and he falls flat in his suit. He turns out to be a former disgruntled employee who is sick of current conflict of heroes and berates Tony for going up against him. According to him, Stark is ashamed and is hiding behind his technology that he wears as armor.

Tony pints out that killing him will only make him a martyr but his guest has some other ideas, which revolves around an Antimatter generator. From Helicarrier, S.H.I.E.L.D. observes an anomaly in guard formation at Stark Tower and Maria Hill is called in. After some inspection, she deployed her units to go there and check in on Stark.

New Avengers – Civil War (Softcover)

New Avengers – Civil War (Hardcover)

A "Civil War" is breaking down superhero communities and former friends now stand rivals in terms of ideal. Marvel Comics hires writer Brian Michael Bendis (House of M, Secret War) to continue his run of New Avengers monthly ongoing comic-book series for its fifth storyline as a tie-in to titular event, collecting issues #21-25.

Bendis was aided by artists Howard Chaykin (Punisher War Journal – Jigsaw, Wolverine – The Death of Wolverine), Jim Cheung (X-Force, Young Avengers), Leinil Francis Yu (Infinity, Secret Invasion), Olivier Coipel (Thor – Rebirth, X-Men – Primer) and Pasqual Ferry (Ultimate Fantastic Four, Ultimate Iron Man II) on individual issues.

With their newly reformed team broken up because of a law, heroes are fighting among themselves over ideologies other than bad guys. Superhuman Registration Act has affected each of their lives in different ways but they are still regrouping, forming resistance against authority and fighting their ground till the end.

Since every renowned cape wearer is in conflict with their rival group, it may seem like villains are taking a back seat but all they are doing is preparing for something very big soon. A much larger plot has been developed by a sinister party that will affect heroes even more than they can even think of in upcoming "Revolution" storyline.
