Before you get all worked up, no, this has nothing to do with the upcoming Captain America movie with the same name.
The original Marvel Civil War comic saga took place ten years ago, and was a landmark event that pitted heroes against heroes over whether their powers should be subject to government control. Now they are making Civil War II, which will again bring up an issue that divides the most powerful beings in the universe and shuffles them into two clearly opposing sides.
In the new version, a mysterious new being will emerge with the power to see the future with extreme accuracy. It will use that power to prevent a major tragedy before it even happens, raising the question of whether super heroes should be able to use the predictions as a way to stop crime from happening before it starts. And if you’re thinking “hey, wasn’t that the plot of Minority Report?”, you’re right, it kind of was.
Since you can’t have a civil war without two sides, the debate forces Marvel’s finest into two camps. The first will be led by Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel. Her side believes that using the predictions of future crime to punish bad guys before they do bad will ultimately save lives.
As seen in the picture, she is joined by Monica Rambeau, She-Hulk, Ant-Man, The Winter Soldier, Hawkeye, Blue Marvel, Medusa, Captain America (Steve Rogers), The Vision, War Machine, and Spider-Man
The opposing side, who believes that on one should be punished for a crime they haven’t yet committed (even if the predictions are incredibly accurate), is led by Iron Man.
Joining Tony Stark will be Black Widow, Deadpool, Captain America (Sam Wilson), The Totally Awesome Hulk (aka, Amadeus Cho), Hercules, Black Panter, Luke Cage, Thor (Jane Foster), America Chavez, Star-Lord, and Daredevil.
“A mysterious new Marvel character comes to the attention of the world, one who has the power to calculate the outcome of future events with a high degree of accuracy,” says the synopsis. “This predictive power divides the Marvel heroes on how best to capitalize on this aggregated information, with Captain Marvel leading the charge to profile future crimes and attacks before they occur, and Iron Man adopting the position that the punishment cannot come before the crime.”
The comic cross-over event starts in June 2016,
