So, yeah. Basically, everything before Civil War number 7 is a complete waste of time. Both sides are just going to fight it out.
All of this bloated, out of character nonsense and it's unreasonable length and delays, all for nothing. This basically could have been one issue. Thanks a lot, marvel.

you know a big graphic novel would have been really cool, with like special double sized one shots out. I mean the New Mutants were all introduced in a big graphic novel weren't they? One can't we have a big event in it, instead of dragging it out for 6 months, only to be followed be another big event 3 months later. I mean is anyone else tired of all this. I mean how much longer until the next big events, with the next big team shake up. Four months until we here the annoucement, which is them filled with two months prepartion, then however long it takes for the events to be played out. Its getting old! But then again, Marvel is making big bucks off it, so it wont stop.

We are now also getting another 6 month of a team set up thing, and another Ronin, which means we'll at least get one or two issues about whoever this is. Geeh Bendis, why not repeat yourself. An Echo? Because fans went wild with excitement the last time around.

It's pretty hard to judge a book before it comes out, unless you're able to scry the future, in which case you've got better things to do than grip about comic books... If you're unhappy with CW, then don't buy it. I'm looking forward to the ending. Overall, I've enjoyed the series.

Nobody is making you buy it and you don't know what's going to happen. There are a lot of good non-CW related books out there. Daredevil, the ultimate line, Moon Knight, Iron Fist...even the titles that tie into it don't really have all that much to do with the actual story. Friendly Neighborhood Spiderman barely mentions it.

and what exactly has been out of character given the situation?

...and The Sentry takes out half of the other side in an instant. He is more powerful than Clor, you know.

-It's just my opinion. I could be wrong.

Actually, I think PAD is doing a good job using it as a backdrop for stories. The last few arcs were only possible because of Civil War.

Even if your prediction comes true and CW 7 is just a mindless fight, I don't think that means the whole thing has been a waste of time. There were a lot of intersting character angles that were explored in the last few months.

I meant...we are at square one again. Everything that happened in issues 1 through 6 are rendered moot by the ending of 6. Both sides are equal now, and are getting ready to fight, like on a chessboard.

Think about it like a very good, close, NBA game... Both sides might have the lead at some point. There are cool moments throughout the game- BUT the end is where is it most exciting!

I for one and looking forward to it \:\)

Equal? Cap's side have virtually left themselves in a do or die situation in Tony's own HQ while Tony has the entire government on his side, SHIELD, the Pro Reg heroes, the Thunderbolts and clones and a large section of the media.

And don't start with the vast power difference between the two sides- name five Secret Avengers who can go toe to toe with She Hulk, Bishop, Doc Samson, Radioactive Man and Fixer? And by that I mean poentially to the death. Pretty hard, once you exclude Cap, Cage, Hercules and Hulkling and Wiccan, who will likely be engaged with the others.

...Boycott! I read so many complaints here concerning these comic books but it appears that these complainers actually buy the book! How can that be? How can you buy something that you don't like?

No wonder sales are so high. This sends a message to Marvel (who is predominantly concerned with sales figures over everything... even over quality) that they need to create more like this... That they need to derail the Marvel Universe into something else because "people like it".

Well if you like Civil War then... get some taste and read a real book for a change! No... Just kidding actually. If you like then buy it. Can't really change that. More power to you; I wish you luck.

If you don't like it stay away from it like the plague (that it is). By buying this book you send a message to Marvel to "keep it up".

Also have you noticed that the people who really tout this book are the "industry types" in other words the folks that see the money (like the Wizard gang)? Comic Book Resources features Marvel's blurb on Civil War (written by Marvel) stating that Civil War is "critically aclaimed". Huh? Look, I'm not majoring in literature or anything but I can tell you that "War and Peace" this ain't! It's not even Busiek's Avengers or "The Dark Knight". Bendis is good but he's no Gerber, Moore, Morrison or even Ellis. Maybe because people are fooled into buying this thing as it's "commercially acclaimed" but I'd like to see some REAL literary criticism on "Civil War".

Maybe I'll actually buy a copy (sending Marvel the wrong message of course) and give it to my lit professor for review. >:-D
