And who decides what the right thing is? If Dr Doom feels that running the world - by force if need be - for humanity's own good is the right thing to do, is he being responsible?

Red lights, income taxes, jury duty, putting your garbage out on the right days... in your everyday living, do you only obey the laws you agree with? Or do you also obey the ones you don't necessarily see a point to, but agree to follow because you trust they exist for a reason (usually, the good of society)

The message Marvel is trying to send via Civil War is that you shouldn't have to obey laws if you don't want to. And I don't know about anyone else, but that's a pretty dangerous message to be sending kids.

Thank God kids no longer read these things. \=\)

Heroes who have saved the world at great risk do have more right than a politician who probably works from election to election. They are not comparable to Dr Doom.

Not all laws are ever obeyed by all people. A law abiding person is someone who doesn't break laws, not one who toes the line with everything called a regulation. Most offences are minor and punished accordingly, or simply let off. I'm not having a cape killer chase me because I put on some spandex!

The entire SHRA is about licensing- tell me, how many kids are out there driving without a licence?
