Civil War | Comics

When the young mutant group of heroes, the New Warriors tried to get higher ratings for their own TV Show by ambushing a few second-string super villains like Cobalt Man, Coldheart, Nitro and Speedfreak, their plan went wrong. The villain Nitro caused an explosion during his escape attempt which killed more than 600 people, among them 60 were confirmed to be children.

This event sparked an anti-mutant hysteria in the aftermath of M-Day and the necessity for superheroes to be kept in check and thus the Super Human Registration Act, which was already being discussed by a few super people earlier, is passed within a week. According to the Act's rule, every super powered person both heroes or villains should reveal their secret identities to the government and to register with them as well.

Captain America was approached by S.H.I.E.L.D. to work with them in support of the Act because of his influence on the community but his quick refusal made him a fugitive of law too and he narrowly escaped his capture at the hands of S.H.I.E.L.D. operatives. Captain America formed the Secret Avengers with Cable, Daredevil, Falcon, Bill Foster, Hercules and Luke Cage, who were opposed to the Registration Act. Iron Man grouped the other super peoples to the Act's support as well as Spider-Man on his side. Upon being convinced by Tony Stark, he even revealed his secret identity in front of public as a support to the Act.

Cap's team is soon joined by Young Avengers, Cloak and Dagger as they occasionally fights S.H.I.E.L.D. "cape-killer" units and other criminals. Tony on the other hand believed that, oversight of heroes is a great idea. Then, along with Mister Fantastic and Hank Pym, he created Prison 42 for captive heroes and villains alike who will not comply with them, located inside the Negative Zone. Peter Parker realized that Tony is monitoring him with his new Iron Spider suit and then took a tour of the Negative Zone; he quickly realized that he joined the wrong side.

He sneak out of Stark Tower with Aunt May and Mary Jane but Iron Man released a few villains on his tail to bring him back. It was the timely intervention of Punisher who saved Spidey and brought him to Cap's secret base. Soon, the whole super human community became split into two teams. A major conflict between the divided heroes occurs and the effect is going to shake the core of everyone’s relation with each other.

Heroes Divided by War

"Civil War" has changed the dynamics of heroes in the whole Marvel Universe from inside out as heroes who previously fought alongside against world-ending threats became each others' opponent. Doctor Strange and the team of X-Men remained mostly neutral during this event, except for Wolverine, who went on a solo mission to take down Nitro himself. The story is later adapted into a live-action film, the third movie of the Captain America trilogy titled "Captain America: Civil War" from Marvel Studios on 2016.
