The gist of the story is that a third-tier superhero team attempts to apprehend a team of super-villains, with disastrous results: one of the villains uses his explosive powers, leveling, among other things, an elementary school and causing the deaths of 600 civilians, 60 children among them. The government quickly pushes through legislation in the form of a Superhuman Registration Act, which would require superhumans to reveal their identities and register with the government, in essence becoming government employees, complete with proper training, government funding and benefits if they decide to work for S.H.I.E.L.D. The fallout occurs when the one side in favor of the SRA, led by Iron Man, clashes with a second side opposed to the SRA, led by Captain America.
The first issue I had, and one that was harped on by many, was the characterization of many of the major players, for example, Captain America, Iron Man, and Reed Richards. Instead of merely rehashing the "well, they did away with 40 years of characterization" argument, I offer a possible solution: The story might have been better served by having Captain America be in charge of the pro-registration side and Iron Man be against it.Read more ›
Even though I'm excited for the film, I know it can never be as good as this book. This includes so many fan favorites, from the obvious Avengers and X-Men characters, to others like Spider-Man, Hulk, Daredevil, Punisher, Doctor Strange, Venom, Namor, and so many more.
I would highly recommend reading Avengers Disassembled, House Of M, X-Men Messiah Complex, and Second Coming first. It's not a requirement, but strongly recommended. It would be like watching Captain America: Civil War without watching all the other movies that lead up to it.
As for the quality of the book itself, mine was in new condition, and the binding, and over all page quality is perfect in my opinion.
