Marvel has just unveiled additional details to Civil War II, the publisher’s next big crossover event. Instead of the traditional Captain America and Iron Man clash, a new cover unveils a feud between Captain Marvel and Iron Man. Previously we saw Iron Man and (Sam Wilson) Captain America in a clash as well. A major fight between (Steve Rogers) Captain America and Iron Man broke out in the very recent Avengers #44 which kicked off Secret Wars – maybe the problem is Tony Stark?
Brian Michael Bendis (Daredevil), David Marquez (The Joyners in 3D) and Justin Ponsor (Ultimate Spider-Man) who all happen to make up the Miles Morales: The Ultimate Spider-Man team are reuniting for Civil War II. Similar to the inciting incident for the original Civil War, the new series from Marvel comics will see the death of a hero to kick off the conflict of the story – feel free to speculate who will die. The New York Daily News revealed information that is bound to separate Civil War II from the initial Mark Millar (Jupiter’s Legacy) and Steve McNiven (Old Man Logan) series.
“A mysterious new Marvel character comes to the attention of the world, one who has the power to calculate the outcome of future events with a high degree of accuracy,” according to the synopsis. “This predictive power divides the Marvel heroes on how best to capitalize on this aggregated information, with Captain Marvel leading the charge to profile future crimes and attacks before they occur, and Iron Man adopting the position that the punishment cannot come before the crime.”
Who else is getting a Minority Report flashback? Also, does this information tease that the main conflict of the story will be between Captain Marvel and Iron Man? Take a look at some of the teams that have assembled on both sides of the conflict, it looks like (Sam Wilson) Captain America is on Tony Stark’s team now? Spider-Man is notably on the opposing side of Stark as well this time. Civil War II debuts in May, the same month as the big screen affair; Captain America: Civil War which opens May 6. Will Tony Stark at least try to get along with his peers following this story?
