Here's my theory.....

I think it will be Iron Man who buys the farm...in a faked/staged death using CLONES!!! Tony and Reed know that fighting won't stop the resistance. They think 2 steps ahead. They will have planned out that the only way to stop "the resistance" heroes is to show them that their "fighting" won't stop the registration act from becoming a law. So Tony and Reed create a Clone of Tony to fight with the expectation that the resistance will have to "kill him" to stop him. Tony will control the armor from afar using his extremis powers. The only person who knows what is going on is Reed (thats why he couldn't change his mind when prompted by Sue). He knew Tony's plan was the only way to stop the resistance. Rather than someone else die, Tony's clone would be sacrificed and several things would happen. First, Tony would now have his secret identity back with (maybe) only the government knowing..or...he will "retire"/go underground and a new Iron Man will now use the armor...maybe even a clone. The second thing that would happen is, the resistance will stop fighting for 2 reasons. First, since a hero has died because of their actions, they are now obligated to turn themselves in. Of course, they will be pardoned (like some criminals) for "falling in line" with the new law and registering. Of course not all will turn themselves in but they won't need to because of the second point, which is, rather than kill another hero, they will stop the "resistance" movement and in effect become "outlaws". They will have no choice due to the fact that they will no longer have a leader because.... and this is the key .... Tony will be killed by...Captain America. Cap will turn himself in because its the right thing to do....until....The Confession. The Confession is Tony telling Steve what he did and why. The problem for Steve is he won't be able to argue with Tony at this point. After having experienced "killing" his friend, he will realize there are some things not worth killing for. Dying for a cause is one thing....killing for it is another. However, since Cap now knows he did not really kill Tony, he will escape and since he will be unhappy with his governments direction be forced to take up a new identity...Ronin. This, in my opinion, would validate everyone's actions during the course of Civil War. Tony is the traitor because his plan calls for him to "die". Reed goes along because he knows it will save lives.
What do you think?
