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.

Fallen-+-Accused-Featured

Civil War II promised to be a landmark event in the Marvel Universe and there have already been multiple huge casualties as the moral dilemma at the heart of the story splits the heroes right down the middle.

Give ‘Em Elle: The Fear of Spoilers

featured

Welcome to Give ‘Em Elle, a weekly column that hopes to bridge the gap between old school comics fandom and the progressive edge of comics culture. This week, like a lot of us, I’m thinking about spoilers and how they related to comics. I don’t have any big answers, or any axes to grind, but as usual I do have some thoughts.

Civil War Correspondence: Casualties Of War [Recapping ‘Civil War II’ #2-3]

civilwarii-2

We're three issues into Civil War II now and the stakes have raised dramatically. There have been major deaths and lines crossed as the heroes contend with the predictive information provided by the Inhuman named Ulysses. With Civil War Correspondence, I'm recapping the story so far and providing offering a personal assessment of where I stand in the conflict. I reserve the right to flip-flop at will. This time around we're looking at the second and third issues of Civil War II, and the death of an Avenger --- at the hands of another Avenger.

Civil War Correspondence: Prelude To War

Civil-War-Featured

Civil War II is upon us, and all of our favorite Marvel books are going to be subsumed by a conflict that pits hero against hero, sister against brother, and Avenger against Avenger. To keep track of the moral quagmire, we at ComicsAlliance will be following events closely to determine which side is right in this ethically grey debate.

This first month sees the playing field established with two prelude issues and today’s big, life-altering Civil War II #1. New characters are introduced, classic characters die, and lines are drawn in the sand as the principal players take their positions and prepare for war.

Kamala Decides Whether to Side with Her Hero in ‘Ms. Marvel’ #8 [Preview]

Ms_Marvel_featured

Kamala Khan is going to have to take sides in Civil War II. In fact, I keep hearing that everyone is. The crossover is coming to Ms. Marvel's doorstep with issue #8 of her current series. The "Civil War Reenactiment" variant cover pretty clearly positions her as the Spider-Man of this version (meaning the initially naive character who switches sides), although the scene of her unmasking is presumably just a reference to that, and not something that will happen this time around.
