    I always thought Captain America was a total tool, but reading this book catapulted Captain America to one of my favorite Marvel characters. I actually read this when it was first coming out in comic form and it was one of the most fun and absorbing reading experiences I’ve had. Still probably my favorite Marvel Comics story. I couldn’t say how this book reads on its own, aside from the other crossover issues, but we also have what I’d consider the most important other books in the series.

    I would actually recommend starting with the ‘Road to Civil War’ book, at least for the Spider-Man story leading up to this.

    This Marvel series is sweet. If you’re tired of good guys fighting bad guys, but are still into the idea of superheroes… This is a must read.

    A Civil War brought to the surface of the superheor/supervilin community, over the idea that in order to be a “superhero”, one must hand over their personal identity and register with the government… Otherwise they will be considered a criminal and a fugitive with a warrant out for their capture and arrest.

    Split down the middle, many believe that revealing their identity will make them and their loved ones a target for violent crime, where others believe that they should have nothing to worry about and that it’s about time that heroes take responsibility for the damage they create while fighting crime. After all, police officers have to register and deal with the same issue, why shouldn’t a person with extraordinary powers?

    All in all, its a sweet read that touches on powerful philosophical and governmental issues.
