New Avengers: A.I.M., Volume 3: Civil War II by Al EwingI really enjoyed this one. There was no high concept, no grim n gritty, just good, old-fashioned superhero fun! I need more of this sort of thing, for the good of my soul. The artwork was a marked improvement over the first two volumes, as well, which was nice. I even got a mini New Mutants reunion! Al Ewing clearly grew up enjoying a lot of the same comicbooks I did (and hes the same age as my kid brother, so that makes sense).
The follow-up to this book, USAvengers, looks ridiculous... but Im hoping its going to be ridiculous in a good way...
Guardians of the Galaxy: New Guard, Volume 3: Civil War II
The storyline builds upon the events that developed in previous Marvel storylines, particularly " Avengers Disassembled ", " House of M ", and "Decimation". The plot of the series follows a framework story line in which the U. However, superheroes opposed to the act, led by Captain America , find themselves in conflict with those supporting the act, led by Iron Man , with Spider-Man caught in the middle; the X-Men take a neutral stance. Marvel, become increasingly authoritarian. The conflict between freedom and security is an underlying theme in the story line, with real-life events and discussions, such as the U. The series polarized critics but it was a commercial success.
Debuting in June of that year, it is the sequel to 's " Civil War " and consists of a nine-issue eponymous core limited series , by writer Brian Michael Bendis and artists David Marquez and Justin Ponsor, and a number of tie-in books. Functioning as an allegory about the nature of determinism versus free will ,   the story sees opposing factions of superheroes led by Captain Marvel and Iron Man come into conflict when a new Inhuman named Ulysses emerges with the ability to predict the future. The debut of the series was scheduled to capitalize on the release of the Marvel Studios film Captain America: Civil War. The repercussions of the storyline resulted in the new status quo of the Marvel Universe presented in the subsequent "Divided We Stand" storyline, which was released as part of the company's Marvel NOW! While the issues involved are different, we'll be taking the same approach to Civil War II.
A trial is being held at the Manhattan Federal Courthouse. Prosecutor Matt Murock calls his first witness, Carol Danvers , who's asked to recall the events that transpired on July 19 in Alpine , Utah. She recalls approaching Bruce Banner at his lab to inquire him about his work, with Banner being baffled by her arrival, considering he hadn't Hulked-out for a year, and then by that of Tony Stark , who asked Banner to step outside of the building. Once outside, Tony, Carol, and Bruce were surrounded by several super-heroes. Stark is called to the stand as the next witness and continues narrating the events. Outside of his lab, Banner was informed about the Inhuman precog, Ulysses , and his most recent vision, which involved Banner Hulking-out. Bruce began to get nervous, but he was reassured by Stark, stating that he had reached a deal with Danvers, and they required some proof of any potentially dangerous activity before taking action.
