Civil War #2: Wow

The internet is abuzz with the major reveal in Civil War #2, released today. Suffice it to say, it will change Spider-Man forever. We won't say what it is here (we'll try our best to wait a week before we mention it), but it's a bombshell. To be sure, there have been hints that this might happen for the last month or so. I am not sure that I think it's a good idea for the character long-term, but it will undoubtedly provide storyline fodder for the next 10 years, at least. If you haven't rushed off to pick up Civil War #1 yet, do so now. While you're at it, pick up Civil War: Frontline #1. In CW:F #1 last week, Tony Stark/Iron Man revealed his identity to the public.

SPOILER ALERT (NO- We're still not going to tell you about Spidey)

In CW #2, Captain America's building a resistance that includes Falcon, the Young Avengers, Cloak and Dagger, and a few others I couldn't pin down. Reed Richards/Mister Fantastic is revealed to be building a superhuman holding facility (my people call it a prison) for those superhumans/costumed vigilantes that don't register with the federal government. Also shown to be siding with Iron Man and Reed Richards on the side of registering are She-Hulk, Ms. Marvel, Doc Samson, and Tigra

Finally, props to writer Mark Millar for using the word "umbrage" on the CW #2 recap page. We like that word. Now if they could find a use for the word "Non-U," we would be really impressed. It's really a word. Look it up and check out these books.
