PREVIEWS: CIVIL WAR returns

Just look at Mr. Fantastic's face! He can't even keep up.
Just look at Mr. Fantastic’s face! He can’t even keep up.

CIVIL WAR was an adrenaline filled, blood pumping story arc that changed the Marvel universe for some years to come. Heroes fought heroes, some revealed their identities to the world, and more than a few died in battle. Now, Marvel brings us back to the battleground of the superhero Civil War in CIVIL WAR #1, tying into Marvel’s game changing SECRET WARS event.

I for one can’t wait to pick up this title. The original CIVIL WAR run kept me on the edge of my seat with every issue, and to see Marvel come back to this story is a dream come true. The original story gave Spider-Man one of his most difficult decisions in his career. And who doesn’t want to see their favourite hero kick another in the face? (Obviously I’m talking about Spider-Man’s quick yet spectacular fight scene to the right.)

Take a look at the carnage of hero vs. hero below.
