Decent story with good artwork. Although, with a title with "civil war" there was not as much fighting as I thought there would be. Perhaps it was more of a problem with my expectations more than the book itself. Just don't go into this expecting epic battles everywhere, there's just a few "civil skirmishes".

I bet the person who wrote this books was thinking, "Hey, wouldn't it be such a great plotline if I turned Captain Marvel into a terrorist?!"'

Spoiler alert: It isn't.

The worst writer in the industry gets another go at one of Marvel's big events in this collection. Tony Stark and Carol Danvers find themselves on opposite sides of an ethical debate over a new Inhuman's abilities to foresee the future and whether or not that should be used. Everyone else falls somewhere in between as the story goes along. As usual, Bendis seems to love to hear himself talk, since he can't write a character in their own distinct voices, instead turning everyone into parrots for himself. He butchers continuity and characterization throughout. One must feel sorry for whatever DC property he'll get his hands on when he moves over there, because he won't treat them well.

Meh. While titled "Civil War II", this story doesn't have much of the Marvel Universe changing effects or excellent writing of the first story (a couple of characters died, but it's otherwise business as usual). The writer attempts to tie in the real life issue of profiling, but fails to draw a good parallel, and it's not instantly relatable. In "Civil War", children died due to irresponsibility, which demanded a solution. The solution demanded that people take sides, and fight if they disagreed. In "Civil War II", they saved the earth twice, but worry that the power might someday be used incorrectly. This seems like a legit but not urgent concern, and there's plenty of time room to work out a mutually-beneficial solution (though they don't because reasons).

Also worth mentioning that almost none of the characters we grew close to are featured in this story. I do enjoy the new Ms. Marvel and Spider Man, but Parker Spider-Man, the X-Men, and most of the Avengers are sitting this one out. Captain Marvel has had no good writers and for a strong character, she's difficult to relate to. Iron Man is out of character and his theory of "protecting the future as the future" is difficult to understand and relate to. The whole thing is solved by a Deus Ex Machina, and everything goes back to normal.

Not a bad read, but not worth the hype.

Super intense and thrilling storyline! Civil war once again rips the fabric of the Marvel universe. Iron Man versus Captain Marvel...only one can win! Civil War 2: Change the past....or protect the past?
