This month, in Marvel's January solicitations, it's all about the big returns, with some fan favorite heroes and villains showing up, a critically acclaimed character getting a second chance, and love in the air in the Spider-Verse.

Civil War Correspondence: The Character Assassination Of Carol Danvers By The Writer Brian Bendis [Recapping ‘Civil War II’ #5]

Civil War II has completely overwhelmed the Marvel Universe, with all of your favorite titles tangentially tying into the event in whatever way they can in hopes of a sales bump. With a founding Avenger dead and battle lines nearly drawn, it’s time to dig back into the story for more Civil War Correspondence, and review where I stand on the conflict. I reserve the right to flip-flop at will, although that’s looking less and less likely.

This month we're looking solely at Civil War II #5 as the heroes finally clash and the final page hits uncomfortably close to reality. Spoilers follow.

‘Civil War II’ Suffers More Delays, Final Issue Pushed To December

Civil-War-II

It's charitable to say that Brian Michael Bendis and David Marquez's Civil War II has not been the most well-received of events, with its killing off of one of Marvel's most prominent black superheroes in War Machine, and the resulting character assassination of Captain Marvel. However, it isn't just on the page that things seem to be going wrong, as the comic's release schedule --- like that of many event comics --- has gone almost completely off the rails, with the final issue pushed back to December 28th.

CWC-Featured

Civil War II has completely overwhelmed the Marvel Universe, with all of your favorite titles tangentially tying into the event in whatever way they can in hopes of a sales bump. With a founding Avenger dead and battle lines nearly drawn, it's time to dig back into the story for more Civil War Correspondence, and review where I stand on the conflict. I reserve the right to flip-flop at will, although that's looking less and less likely.

This time around we’re looking at the fourth issue of Civil War II, as well as two issues of The Ultimates, and I finally pick a side as a fan-favorite Marvel character crosses a line and becomes potentially irredeemable.
